The horn relay should be in the power distribution center, under the hood, close to the battery. It is rectangular black box. Oh, it sounds as if your clock spring is broken inside the steering column.

My turn signals and brake lights no longer are working I checked all the fuses and they are fine. I didnt know if there was some kind of relay located near the fuse box, that may be shot?

there is no relay for the brakes but there is separate flasher for the signals. Your problem is more likely a wiring or switch issue, as these systems use the same bulbs. Check the wiring at the back of the truck. If someone put a trailer connection in there, that might be the problem. If not, the stop light wires go up the steering column to the turn switch and then back down to the lights. I have pasted your wiring diagram below and also instructions for getting to the switch in the steering column. This requires a couple special tools that you may be able to rent or borrow. Sorry this is not good news...


Turn switch access:

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Remove the steering column trim.
  • Remove the horn pad from the steering wheel.
    • Remove the steering wheel and horn collar.
    • Use a suitable puller to remove the steering wheel.
    • With a suitable compressor, compress the preload spring to the lock plate. Compress the spring only enough to remove the snap ring.
    • Use a pick and a small flat blade screwdriver to remove the snap ring.
    • Remove the lock plate, horn contact carrier, and spring.
    • Remove the bolts at the upper steering column support and the upper mounting bracket from the column.
    • Disconnect the turn signal wiring connector.
    • Wrap tape around the wire and connector.
    • Remove the hazard warning knob from the column.
    • Remove the switch retaining screws and remove the switch.

    The controls on the column of my 2006 dodge magnum do not work, turn signals, radio controls on the sterring wheel, horn, etc

    Everything going put at once? I would look for a connector that came loose under the dash because in my mind the only other common point that could cause this would be very expensive, the ECM itself.

    Need to replace turn signal switch 93 cadillac deville

    First do you have a sterring wheel puller. Can't remove the steering wheel without one. Quite an involved job including snaking the electrical connector end through the steering column. I wouldn't recommend it to the novice

    Turn signal flasher keeps blowing

    This is more than likely caused by a Bad Turn Signal Switch Housing inside the Sterring column. The one that the Handle is attached to and Wraps around the Sterring Shaft on the Inside of the Column.

    My blinker stays on when i meke a left turn

    The problem with the blinker staying on is most likely the cancel spring. In the steering column you have two cancel springs, one for the right turn signal and one for the left turn signal. your left turn cancel spring is probably broken. to replace this spring requires removing the steering wheel and components. on some models you have to replace the whole turn signal module cause it's all one piece. Check with your local dealer or parts store to see which one you have. Hope this helps you out.
