Mine did that too. It eventually blew itself out and the horn relay is under the hood but not sure which one it is. I just don't have a horn.

SOURCE: 1995 Buick LeSabre - horn blows

My horn would honk without any assistance from me. The reason was because the plastic cover for the air bag and horn switches had shrunk so tight that it pressed on the horn switches. If your problem is intermittent then cold temperature would also cause the cover to shrink. This is how I solved the problem on my 1995 Buick LeSabre:
Disconnect the negative battery cable.

  1. Under the hood I found a long black plastic cover with the words, “Maxi-Fuse/Relay Center”
2. 2. There are two plastic twist locks (turn ¼ left) and one small wing nut holding the cover on. When the cover is off I see two black fuse covers side by side and below them are several relays. Some are gray and some are black.
3. My horn relay was the second from the left as I faced the rear of my car. It was gray. Some may be black.
4. A small green retainer tab had to be pushed out before I could pull the relay out. On the back of the relay were two orange wires that supply 12V. One green wire that goes to the horns and one black wire for ground that goes to the horn switch under the air bag.
5. I cut the black wire and wired in a spst push button switch that I connected to ground.
6. I mounted the push button switch near the driver’s door on a flat part of the dash. I used very strong double sided tape to secure the button switch to the dash.

My horns now are activated when I push my new horn switch button. My problem solved.

Someone recommended removing the air bag/horn switch unit from the steering wheel and relieving the tightness of the plastic cover. There are probably more than one way to this.

Put fuse in for horn, horn stays on


You need to check the horn buttons and/or connections in the steering wheel. I've added an exploded view of your steering wheel and related parts. If you do it yourself, be sure to dis-arm the SRS (Airbags) systemc586d4df-4fe5-47f0-ba7d-6e15c3fe0a87.jpg

1995 buick lesabre horn goes off randomly and have to hit the steering wheel for it to stop


the contact in the steering wheel is shorting out, all you can do is replace it,, however,, any time your messing with the steering wheel or anything associated with it, you must use extreme care,, prior to doing anything, disconnect the Neg battery terminal,, then the positive one, and wait 10 minutes, this will allow the air bag system time to discharge, the last thing you need is the air bag going off, once this has been done, behind the wheel, there will be recessed screws that hold on the face of the steering wheel cover,, remove those, and pull off the cover gently,, your going to have a single wire, ( there are others, But your concerned with the single one, that's for the horn) make sure that is secure . if it seems that wire hasn't worked loose then your problem is going to be in the contacts on the horn buttons, some of these are actually molded into the cover and can't be replaced,, which would mean you have to replace the cover itself,,

Sounds like a short in the circuit, which may or may not be in the steering wheel. It might be, if hitting the horn button actually stops it for a while. Be careful with the airbag and remove the fuse before messing with it- I've heard a slight short will set it off.

Horn rings intermittanl while driving


Inside the components of the steering assembly and shaft they have put contacts that touch a ring as the wheel is turned enabling current to flow thru while not having wires to worry about breaking internally from constant back forth motoin of the wheel. It is conceivable that a component in this assembly has broken, especially if the horn blows when you turn the wheel versus driving straight and the horn does not blow. This would be the place to start if i was diagnosing this vehicle. Special tools are needed to remove the steering wheel assembly so if you are unsure of what you r doing have an experienced technician repair this problem.
