Question about 1990 Dodge Dynasty

The horn doesnt work at the steering wheel, but works when the alarm goes off. We have checked the fuses; Is there another relay or fuse box somewhere else besides the relay box under the hood or the fuse box in the glove compartment?

Check the STEERiNG PAD HORN, the single wire in there might have disconnected and needs to reconnect or the terminal is corroded and oxidize. Checking the terminal wire in the steering wheel, just ground the wire and the horn must goes off! Taah!

Horn stopped working. how to fix?


Check to see if there is 12 volts at the horn positive connection when someone pushes the horn button on the steering wheel. If there is voltage, and no sound, you need a new horn. If there is no voltage when the horn button is pressed, you need to troubleshoot the rest of the electrical circuit. First look in your fuse box for a blown horn fuse. Then try replacing the horn relay.

How do I stop horn blowing


Pull off the wires!
The horn will actuate from a relay which is one of the little black boxes on the fuse box. The power to this relay is usually supplied through a fuse, which will also be on the fuse box, and will be clearly marked on the fuse box cover. Pull the fuse or the relay and the horn will cut out.
The most probable cause of the horn blowing is a short on the wire from the relay to the steering wheel, or possibly the wiper contact on the steering wheel. Don't confuse "wiper" with the windshield wipers. it is a small copper finger or carbon brush that makes contact between the horn button on the wheel with a slip ring under the wheel, which in turn is connected to the wire running to the relay.
With modern cars, however, it is a bit of a gamble getting the steering wheel off, since the air bag could be in the way, and the last thing you want is to set off the air bag while you're working on the steering wheel. An airbag is basically an explosive device which can cause serious injury, so if you are not OK with doing such work, take it to a service agent.

How do you troubleshoot the horn


if your horns work with alarm using remote, then fuse and relay good if you hear no horn using remote set off alarm,and horn pad dont work, replace horn fuse and relay, if both okay, you have to replace the whole horn pad with air bag in steering wheel both horn control pads and airbag is one assembly.

Horn doesnt work


check horn fuse or relay in fuse and relay box (under hood). The fuse you can visually check by looking for a blown metal strip in the fuse (use chart on fuse box lid for labels). relays are more difficult to explain how to test. but they are cheap. you can try buying a new horn relay and installing it. after that, if it still doesn't work there could be a probably with the switch in the steering wheel. if it is i recommend you take it to a shop to diag and fix. worst case it could be a bad horn and/or elctrical wire and connection. A local shop could fix this. But check the horn fuse and relay that more than likely what it is.

Bought an 2004 honda accord and the horn does not work. What is the procedure for repairing this issue?


simple circuit, but can be hard if problem is switch in steering wheel. First check fuse and relay at fuse box. relay should click when horn button on wheel is pushed. If relay doesn't click, either button or relay is bad. If relay clicks, test for voltage at horn. You can use a simple test light available at the auto parts store if you don't have a voltmeter. If there is voltage at the horn, replace horn.
If relay does not click, replace relay to see if that fixes your problem. If new relay doesn't fix, you have a bad switch in the steering wheel or possibly bad wiring. cannot help you with switch as it's different on every car. any questions--let me know.

2005 sebring convertible- horn goes off by itself for 30 seconds


FIrst off the horn's ground works through the steering wheel,so the wire is bare or the end is broken and grounding in a place where it should not. You will have to check the wires for the horn from the fuse box up to the wheel.
your power feed to the headlights and the door locks has an open ( the power is not connected somewhere ) Perform a wiggle test turn on the headlights and lift the hood,find the power distribution box and begin to wiggle the wire harness.Sometimes the chrysler fuse box under the hood get loose inside the power distribution box,it will have to be broken down all the way to the heavy wires comming out of hte box,you can tighten these connections your self.

My horn isnt connected.


The only thing that should click in a fuse box is a relay and i'm pretty sure you don't have a relay for the horn. Check the fuse for the horn. thats all i know to tell you.

HORN DOESNT WORK


a very common cause of this problem is the steering wheel mounted horn button looses it's connection to the horn circuit due to a defective ribbon rotating contact under the steering wheel, the special clock spring shaped ribbon wiring harness is what allows you to turn the wheel and still have a connection to all steering wheel buttons and the airbag, to check this listen for a click when u press the horn button with the engine off, it will be faint but if u listen closely u will hear it, if u don't hear it u will ned to replace the Clock-Spring rotating contact under the steering wheel.

Battery


I've had this exact problem before when being jumped off. The fob DOES NOT make it stop. We removed the fuse that goes to the horn. As soon as your battery gets recharged from the alternator, the fob will work again and the alarm will quit sounding. The only pain about removing the fuse is that the cruise control will not work until you put it back.

Horn wont blow


the problem is the rotating contact that connects the horn to the steering column wiring harness, this part is called the clock-spring contact, u must remove the steering wheel to change the part out.
