Sticking horn button on my 1997 911 (993)

How do I fix the horn button from sticking and sporadically honking on its own on my 1997 911? It is VERY annoying. The air bag is inside so it is a concern for me to mess with this...I do NOT want to disable the horn for safety issues either! Thanks!

It does it when you turn the steering wheel, right? There's a gasket material that is deficient and allowing the circuit to complete; thus the horn engages. On my 97 I chose to pay a mechanic due to the location of the air bag.

On 2002 olds Intrigue, installing new horns but as soon as wires are plugged in horn honks . Removed horn fuse and relay but horn still honks .when pushing horn button ,with no horns, the relay clicks


You may have wires that have become crossed. The wire to the horn and a hot wire have probably lost the outer insulation and crossed each other causing the horn to start honking when it is connected. Check the wires with an electrical tester.

Where can I find my honk sensor in a 2006 Ford Focus? or How to fix my honk in a 2006 Ford focus? The honk is not working?


I believe there are 2 wires to the horn. One is power all the time, and the other is ground through the steering column wire to the horn button on the steering wheel, when it grounds out when pushed.
If it is a single wire to the horn, then there is a relay.

Hi. When I turn my car on the horn is sticking and won't stop. But I can still push the horn and it sounds. I have a 2006 VW Passat 2.0t


I'm not sure I understand this. If the horn is already honking, how can you honk it? Most cars have two horns. A hi and a low sound. While the horn is stuck, open the hood and disconnect the one that is sounding. That won't fix the cause, but at least it will be quieter until you can have it diagnosed by a mechanic.

I have a 1992 lincoln towncar! when i press the horn button ,i get a clicking sound from under the hood..I tried pressing again a short honk then nothing the relay fuse is good and the fuse is good what is...


You may have a poor connection in the wiring to the horns or the grounding connection. The click you hear is the horn relay. Have someone press the horn button while you wiggle wires. Also try rapping on the horns themselves with a stick or screwdriver handle--if that makes them honk, the internal contacts may be bad. Replace them if that is so, as they are usually sealed. Hope this helps!

My horn doesn't work. How do i fix it myself?


Three components, horn, relay, and switch. Find the horn, most likely next to the radiator and behind the grill. Disconnect the plug and jumper it directly to the battery or any 12V source, if it honks it is good. If it does not honk then get a replacement at a parts store or at a junkyard if you want the plug to connect with no wiring changes. If it does honk, then you need to find your fuse panel and replace the horn relay, they are cheap and again are sold at parts stores. If that does not fix it then the switch is the bad guy and it is in the steering wheel. You do not want to mess with that as it has the airbag in it. So you live with it, buy a push button wire it in to the circuit and stick it on the dashboard, or pay a dealer to replace the switch.

My horn used to honk when I locked my 1999 Jeep with the remote


If you have your owner's manual, there is a section that will tell you the exact sequence to press to enable/disable the horn bonk. It has three settings, chirp, honk, and off. The chirp is a really quick chirp of the horn. Honk is a longer honk. Off seems to be what you've set.

I hope this helps.
