Remove horn pad button/switch.Screws in from the back. See if wire that goes to bottom of it is rubbing on shaft. If not the plastic insulator is not in correctly,missing or broken. It allows horn to get ground when you press on horn pad. Properly installed it pushes down & locks in place on the 2 tabs on its bottom.

My 2001 chevy cavalier horn stopped working it would work when the car was off now it stopped completely what do u think it is ?


If you hear a click from the area of the glove box when you press the horn pad on the steering column, then the horn buttons and relay are working and the problem is most likely the horn itself. Unfortunately, the horn buttons in the steering pad are usually the issue. Replacement is tricky since you are working near the airbag. It is easier to find the horn wire at the base of the steering column and redirect it to a horn button you can buy at any auto parts store and fasten to dash next to the driver.

Brothers truck a 1987 ford f150, the horn and cruise were not functioning and key was not smooth turning from lock to start. Replaced the key ignition, also had removed steering wheel and blinker assembly...


You should replace all the wires that are in that steering column. Use OEM wire harnesses. There is a clock spring wire in that column that is bad, The shift indicator is a clip on a piece of string that moves when the column turns with the shifter.

Horn doesn't work at the steering column


if you have and air bag in the steering wheel,the clock spring may be shorted open.or the horn switch in the steering column may also be shorted open.if there is a air bag present you may want to go to a dealer ship to have the system tested.hope this helps.also if there is no air bag check the horn switch for voltage and trace from there.

HORN DID NOT WORK SO WENT AND GOT A FUZE PUT IT IN NOW THE HORN STAYS ON WHY IS THAT?


A fuse always blows for a reason. The reason your fuse must have blown was because of a short to ground in the horn switch. That means the power side of the horn switch is currently touching ground or metal or that the switch is bad on the inside. The more remote possiblity is that you have a short somewhere in the wiring harness. It is always typical for a component to go bad before a harness.

Here are some notes directly from chrysler, let me know if you need any clarification:

Testing and Inspection Notes WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIR-BAGS, REFER TO AIRBAGS AND SEAT BELTS/AIRBAGS BEFORE ATTEMPTING STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Remove the lower steering column cover/knee blocker. Check for continuity between the metal steering column jacket and a good ground. There should be continuity If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, refer to Steering and Suspension/Steering Column and check for proper installation of the steering column mounting nuts.
  2. Remove the driver's airbag module. Unplug the horn switch wire connector. Remove the horn relay from the Power Distribution Center (PDC) . Check for continuity between the steering column half of the horn switch feed wire connector and a good ground. There should be no continuity If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, repair the short circuit as required.
  3. Check for continuity between the steering column half of the horn switch feed wire connector and the horn relay control circuit cavity for the horn relay in the PDC. There should be continuity If OK, go to Step 4. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.
  4. Check for continuity between the horn switch feed wire and the horn switch ground wire on the airbag module. There should be no continuity If OK, go to Step 5. If not OK, replace the faulty horn switch.
  5. Depress the center of the airbag module cover and check for continuity between the horn switch feed wire and the horn switch ground wire on the airbag module. There should be continuity If not OK, replace the faulty horn switch.
