There should be screws in the back of the steering wheel that makes the center of the steering wheel come off. If it has no screws then try to pull it off. Once you get the center of the steering wheel off the contact plate will be there either conected to the steering wheel or the center that you removed. Best bet it to buy a new contact plate from Dodge and replace the whole thing.

2003 acura tl horn does not work when pressed but alarm horn works


If the alarm horn is the same unit used as the car horn then your problem is the contacts for when the horn is pressed. Some horns are activated by pressing the large center area of the steering wheel others have little buttons on the left and right side of the steering wheel. If the latter is the case make sure you try both pressure buttons to see if horn will work. Either way the contacts have to be cleaned or the wheel needs to be adjusted to allow the contacts to touch each other when pressed. That's most likely your problem.

Horn blows by itself


I verify its not a stuck relay...

I disconnect connector under dash and horn stops...


I then suspect its the Horn contacts or a worn grounded wire in air bag/horn switch assembly in steering wheel.




The decorative Vinyl cover shrinks with age...presses on horn contacts against air bag.

I Disconnect Air bag connector (identified as Yellow wire and Connector) usually under dash.

WARNING: ( I Do not - I DO NoT probe the yellow harness/connector with a meter or test light. A test light WILL Detonate my air bag, and impale the bracket in a nearby object/person - me.)

I Removed screws (2) behind steering wheel - which allow air bag horn assembly to be removed.


I Disconnect Air bag connector in this location as well (identified as Yellow wire and Connector) and then;




The red (color varies) and black Horn wires will be plugged into ribbon connectors usually (2) two that feed/connect to contacts for horn function on face of air bag.

I pause here and verify horn will stop blowing when I disconnect the wires going to horn contacts. So I get horn blowing again...

Check horn: To verify this is the cause; I reconnect (whatever fuse/relay/ connector (Not the airbag connector) I disconnected so they will stop blowing) and get horn/s so they are blowing again...

Then I disconnect the ribbon connectors to verify blowing stops.

Note: The experience I had with horn on

Buick Park Ave was at night when temperature cools after hot day, the vinyl cover shrank and horn blows... pressing on horn area of steering wheel firmly would stop horn briefly - then continue.

Note: I will need a rivet tool and rivets... to reassemble.

WARNING: I Do not drill into airbag explosive container. If I do not know how to carefully drill off correct rivet heads and remove vinyl decorative cover from air bag/horn... I STOP and go to the junkyard or ebay and purchase/replace the airbag/horn assembly.

I continued by drilling out rivets (the rivets holding vinyl cover) by using a drill bit as large (or smaller) as the head of rivet and drill gently to release head from rivet body/shank.



I mark all pieces with a magic marker to verify I reassemble right side up (all metal brackets and trim plates and cover).



I Remove vinyl cover exposing horn contact pads which were sandwiched between cover and air bag container.

I used a razor blade to remove vinyl honeycomb material from area of vinyl cover - that when pressed - would activate horn/contacts.

Only a 1/16 of an inch or less needs to be removed.

(I Bend cover inside out and shave material off of area slowly. Care not to cut myself.)

I Reassemble in reverse order with rivets.

Check horn: ...function at this point... by plugging in horn connectors and assure horn contacts work properly as expected.

How to replace horn fuse in innova 2012 model


Go to the horn and have someone press the horn button, does the horn electrical connector get 12 volts to it with the button pressed? If yes the horn is defective, if no you have a defective ribbon contact clock spring contact under the steering wheel which is the most common problem.

I have a 2005 toyota prius, with the key panic button the horn sound but when I press the horn on the steering wheel the horn is dead, what is it a relay, contacts?


This is likely due to a defective horn contact under the steering wheel called the clock spring ribbon rotating contact drum. You must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel (requires special tools) to replace the contact.

Horn blows constantly, doesn,t blow the fuse or anything else. can this problem be outside of the horn blowing assy. on the steering wheel? it,s a 2000 galant. problem occurs all the time if the switch is...


  • The horn relay might have welded contacts (stuck in the on position). Pulling the relay should stop the horn.
  • The wiring harness on the steering column might have a broken wire to the horn relay shorting to someplace that applies power to the relay. In this case, turning the steering wheel all the way to one side or the other may stop the horn, and it won't sound when you press the horn button.
  • The horn button in the steering wheel is stuck on or shorted.

The horn on my 1995 buick leasbre is stuck i change the horn under the the hood on both sides and it still is stuck any idea


The contact point is in the steering wheel. You may need to remove airbag by disconnecting battery and removing the screws on backside of the steering wheel then a wire. The horn will be underneath the airbag. The horn contact will be a plastic insulator and a spring. Check here to see for broken parts. Good luck.

The horn is blowing by itself and stcks on untill i hit the horn on the wheel. it is causing my battery to drain


THE CONTACTS FOR THE HORN IN THE STEERING WHEEL WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. THIS IS SOMETHING YOUR DEALER WILL NEED TO DO BECAUSE OF THE AIRBAG IF SO EQUIPPED.

1995 Prizm Horn Problem


keep the steering wheel in one spot, do not rotate,  check horn by pressing pad in different areas.  If it is intermittent then horn pad is concern.  If it works well trying slowly turning steering wheel while pressing horn pad if there is a point in turning the wheel where horn becomes inop, then the common fault is the horn contact ring inside of the steering column
