    Doubt it. A slight squeeze, a brush with your knee, a quick stop and your hands press forward blasting the horn. Just started happening after 2 years.

I have a 1995 ford crown victoria lx. Had to remove horn relay due to horn started blowing when I would turn. How can I fix this problem cause I really need my horn


It's usually the contacts in the steering wheel behind the horn and air bag. You will have to remove the air bag to access the horn contacts. Make sure you remove the battery terminals from the battery before working on any air bag system! You may have to pull the steering wheel completely, depending on the setup. You can rent the puller from your local parts store. If you can not adjust the wires/contacts for the horn, you may have to buy a new set. Fairly inexpensive, but they may have to order the part, in which you will have to put everything back together until the part comes in, and then start back over. I was able to access mine in my Crown Victoria by just removing the air bag, hopefully it's the same. Hope this helps!

Horn does not work jeep liberty


The likely cause of this is a defective rotating printed circuit coiled contact under the steering wheel, it is referred to as the "clock-spring" contact coil. To replace it requires the very dangerous airbag system be disarmed and the steering wheel removed, it is directly under the wheel. Before replacing any parts have the problem diagnosed to confirmed my guess work.

Horn won't blow in my 2001 toyota corolla


CHECK for bad grounding of horn itself, rust and oxidation may not allow it to ground, also try "jumping" a wire from battery to horn, if it blows horn itself is good, contacts inside steering wheel button may be bent flat, or wire bad..

When the weather starts cooling down, horn will start blowing on its own. it has been doing this for a year.


this is a problem gm has had on alot of different cars over the years.it usually turns out to be either the horn pad contacts or the horn relay.

The horn blows some times when the steering wheel is turned


You might need to disassemble the steering wheel to access the horn button / switch there' could be something loose in there which is causing a closed circuit when the steering wheel is turned. May be solved by tightening or the horn button / switch may need replacing.

Why does my horn not work when i try and use it? what could the problem be


Either your horn fuse is blow, the horn itself is shot or the steering wheel switch is bad. It can only be one of those three things.

Horn blows when turning steering wheel


You most likely have a broken wire under your steering wheel horn push housing and it's grounding itself during rotation of steering wheel , it may also be a spring broken on the horn push assy and the columb assy may be worth a peep . Good luck

The HORN Is a GROUND CONTROLLED BUTTON you need to FIRST Check under CENTER STEERING WHEEL Cover to see if it has a Bad Commectiot, After Asuring this there Is c CLOCK Spring UNDER Steering Wheel that is Fairly Common for Failing.

Horn will not stop blowing


The steering wheel horn pad is warped, it is a common problem, when the soft plastic of the area were you push to honk the horn warps it causes the horn contact to stick on, most common with cars setting in the sun all day with the windows rolled up tight.
