What cause the horn to blow on it own or go off with out pressing the center piece on the steerling wheel?


Usually a bad clock spring under the steering wheel. Does it stop if you rotate the steering wheel? The clockspring is a mylar tape that conducts power to the steering wheel switches. It winds up and unwinds as you turn the wheel. The conductors can short or open. Or, you could have a bad horn switch, but pretty rare. Clockspring is more common.

Carbon infused pads or contacts in the steering wheel horn pad can become changed by age and heat.

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.

My horn goes off without touching, especially in cold weather. usually hitting steering wheel stops it.


Sounds like a loose connection if the horn is activated by pressing on the centre of the steering wheel and it has a airbag the airbag will req removal to gain access to the switch connections

When i touch the steering wheel the horn will not stop honking


check the horn connection. You will need to remove the center cover from the steering wheel. You should see a lone wire with a connector end that mates to a tab. When this makes connection the the center of the steering column (ground in this case) the horn sounds. I would think that if you removed the steering wheel center cover you will readily see and be able to fix the problem.

This is not a hard job, just look the the underside of the steering wheel for the screws that need to be removed to release the cover.

Good Luck

I have a 1997 buick skylark 4cyl and I am having problems with my horn. It just goes off by itself in cold and hot weather. I have to literally punch the steering wheel horn pad to make it stop. A...


If you punch the steering wheel horn pad and it goes off, it leads me to believe that it is the horn pad or a short in the wiring going to the horn pad. You may be jarring the wheel enough to stop the short. Next time it happens press firmly without jarring on the horn pad and see what happens. If it stops it could be the button pad. These can be tough to find. Good luck!

Horn goes off for no reason


you have a bad horn pad. most likly due to higher temps this time of year, for now you can pull the fuse or relay.

Horn wont stop


sounds like the horn contact terminal inside the steering wheel got disconnected and is hitting a metal part of the steering column which triggers the horn. the terminal that got disconnected is probably has positive polarity and the metal part of the steering column has negative polarity. If they come in contact with each other... *honk* *honk*

Horn


since heat caused the problem, i used cold for the fix.....there are several types of canned "FREEZE" that are used for electronic testing...i sprayed the steering wheel--twice. i think it released the weight of the steering wheel cover on the horn contacts...that or my prayers were answered......whatever the fix----currently AIN'T BROKE.....
