Question about 2008 Jeep Wrangler

2 Answers

I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler and the horn goes off by itself. Once while the engine was off for 30 seconds then today while driving for 10 mins. Intermittent beeping and the Jeep has no alarm.

    I have had the same problem on the same year model of a JK Unlimited. I believe it is caused by the contact ring -- however, I seem to have solved it by pulling both horn fuses in the fuse box, then popping them back in (both of them were still good). Maybe it reset the sensor? That was 1 month ago, and I haven't had the problem since. It may be worth noting that the horn issue came up after several days of 100 degree temperatures in our area.

It had happened several times over the course of a week, and it may be worth noting that we'd had several days of 100 degree weather at the time.

You'll have to pull steering wheel to check but there's a contact ring under the wheel that has a pin that rides on it to activate horn. If pin bends breaks or dis-lodges you get "horn effects"

Horn blow out


The horn should be behind the grille or on one of the fenders in the engine compartment. If you unplug it and the fuse does not blow I would say the horn is done.

Horn not working. Fuse is good. 2005 Jeep Wrangler. How do you remove the rubber cover on the sterring wheel to get at the horn.


May be bad horn. Get a 12 volt test light or multi-meter and attach to the horn wire at the horn. Have a helper press the horn. If you have 12 volts when it is pressed, horn itself is bad. Otherwise, may be bad horn relay. Horn cover should pull off.
