The horn on my 1985 Nissan Maxima randomly turns on. I have tried pulling the horn fuse under the steering wheel. I also pulled alarm relays 1&2 under the hood, and the problem continues. What else can I do?

Hi

the problem most likely is the horn switch, is this in the middle of the steering wheel or is it on the control stalk? thats most likely the cause, the metal clip has sliped out or the wire is touching.

Hope this helps
Regards

Dan

2001 montero sport xls sport horn on my alarm how do i stop it i pulled the fuse but it is still goint


You need to determine if it's the horn or the alarm. My Montero (not Sport) had 3 horns. All 3 of which go off w/ the Alarm, but only one is connected to the horn on the steering wheel. I could not make mine go off w/o pulling the relay under the hood.

My spring was bad in the steering wheel. I was able to bypass the wire using instructions that I actually found on a Mitsubishi Forum. Link below:

2001 VW Bug Horn was randomly honking, Now it wont work at all. Relays and Fuses are good. Should I just replace the horn itself? Not quite sure whats the issue.Want to figure out before making drive


it the horn activates randomly when driving and when the steering wheel is moved , the problem will be the ground contact under the steering wheel
there is a small spring loaded button that runs on a slip ring in the back of the steering wheel and intermittent/ random operation can be traced back to a fault in this area
the horn works so it is good , the fuses and relays are working to make the horn work so they are good ( unless there is a grounding problem with the relay causing the relay to operate and blow the horn)

My horn went off and will not turn off on my 2005 Jeep Liberty unless I remove the battery cable. the engine however will start. Security system was not activated when horn went off.


gotta love bad advice,
KJ car
and you failed to scan the PCM, so you really dont know
what system in the car set off that alarm of the 3 or 4 possible.
so, ill not guess.
to fix cars or advise, one must know how this car works.
and Tralaina dont.
the 05 KJ , FSM book is free to view. linked below'

the first answer is pull the horn RELAY,
do not pull FUSE JB F11, this kills other vital systems.
unplug horn actual or the relay (for a nice stop gap fix)
long gap, (LOL)? fix sure.
scan the PCM and win.

the horn switch activates the horn relay
as does the BCM.
but wait what causes BCM to honk horn.,
lots of things.
alarm, inputs WRONG
key fob door lock access. controls , gone wild.
and more, i dont have all programming of BCM, facts.
but is not important , what does matter is SCANNING the PCM.

YOU will get DTC errors, and now you know, WHY and WHAT
set off the alarm.

the JB is drivers cab box. J11 will kill
Pulled
sun roof
and power windows. (my guess is that is important to you)
if you pull that top fuse in PDC box, lots more dies. lots.

How do I disconnect the horn


You can pull the fuse, disconnect the horn relay, or unplug the horn itself.

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.

Can not get horn to blow on a 2001 malibu


2001 malibu horn fuse and relay are located in the under the hood fuse box.
location 21 should be the relay
location 43 should be the fuse.
if the relay is put in wrong the horn will not work. if you replaced the relay and the horn stopped working try pulling the relay out and turning it around. and try the horn again.

When driving, my horn on my 1999 Chrysler Cirrus blows randomly and will not stop until I hit repeatedly in the center of steering wheel. What can I do that is cheap and quick to stop this?


I have or should say had same issue on 1996 cirrus quick fix just remove the HORN RELAY located on the left side of dash relay only controls horn. To really solve the issue at hand you must replace the clock spring on the steering wheel dis-arm air bag before messing with steering wheel to avoid activation of air bag disconnect battery for 10 min then its safe to fiddle with steering wheel safely.

Horn won't stop blow'n


Two things could have happened to cause this. The horn switch in the steering wheel horn pad is stuck or the relay has failed. To stop the horn from blowing remove the horn relay. Usually in a fuse box under the hood square shaped. You can some times pull the horn fuse and this may stop it also. The owners manual should have these component locations.

If there is no original remote try to find a switch that may be hidden but accessible from the drivers seat, if the alarm is no longer needed find an auxilliary wire that may be on the battery or the fuse panel, if original there may be a fuse under the hood, pull the fuse and it should disable the alarn system.
