It should be the yellow and/or light green wire that is wrapped in the steering column harness

Am trying to find the outlet terminal socket for wires from inside the steering column which connect to the horn. Horn has been removed, but I have a replacement to fit


You will need a wiring diagram in order to decipher the colours of the wires or remove the steering column shroud in order to trace the wiring from the horn push.

Some horn pushes ground the earthy side of the horn circuit and some supply battery voltage - either way there is mostly only one wire switched live or ground depending on the horn circuit. Sometimes a relay will be used.

Why isn't the horn working?


What is year--make--model? Check applicable fuses, check wiring circuit in steering column. Have to disarm air bag where applicable, before fooling with steering column.

The relay circuits need voltage and ground, w/o more info I can't look up the wiring diagram.

How do I wire a horn on a 1995 chev truck


Is there a problem with horn wiring in the steering column? The safest fix is to fix so the horn button on the steering will work. I'm not sure I understand your problem?

You could mount a separate horn button on the dash, but, that isn't the safest thing to do because your used to the horn button on the steering wheel.

If you mount a separate horn button, all you need is the horn ground that goes up the steering column, it is black. Find the harness under dash that goes into your steering column, black wire, just to test, use jumper wire from that wire to good ground, if the horn starts sounding, that's it. Run that wire to horn button. Also, you may need to run second ground from that horn button, if it doesn't ground through mounting bracket.

Changed rack and pinion. when turning wheel to right horns started blowing. unplugged airbags and horn stopped. drove truck for 1 day now wont start and dome light is blinking and warning lights on dash...


It sounds like you disturbed the wiring or the connector inside the lower portion (inside the cabin, under the dashboard) of the steering column. You may have also pinched wiring higher inside the steering column, up near the horn button. You'll need to track it all down & correct the wiring problems in (and around) the steering column.

The elements to a horn circuit in your vehicle are:
  1. Steering wheel horn button;
  2. Actuator wire in steering column;
  3. Ground wire for steering column;
  4. Horn relay; and
  5. Horn.
Start troubleshooting!

I had to pull relay out for horn because my horn started blowing when I turned the wheel. How do I fix the problem with the horn blowing when I turn


To fix it properly, you would need to remove the steering wheel to access the wiring for the horn. It has most likely become chafed by improper routing and is shorting out when you turn the wheel. Another, perhaps simpler fix would be to find the horn wire coming out of the bottom of the steering column. Cut it, splice a new wire to it and route it to one side of a horn button you can install on the dashboard. Run a wire from the other side of the button to chassis ground. Test the horn for operation by pressing the button. No more accidental beeping.

I have a 63 Ford T-Bird that I can't get the horn to work. I have checked the wires and the grounds and they look good. The horns work when I tested them also but when I put the steering column together...


You missed something putting the column back together. IDK the design of the wheel, but if all the wires to the column are good, I'd look at the switch itself in the column. Probably not making contact.

most the time on the billet steering wheels you have to put a push button horn. if you ran a wire through column it would spin wire and eventually break it..

HORN DID NOT WORK SO WENT AND GOT A FUZE PUT IT IN NOW THE HORN STAYS ON WHY IS THAT?


A fuse always blows for a reason. The reason your fuse must have blown was because of a short to ground in the horn switch. That means the power side of the horn switch is currently touching ground or metal or that the switch is bad on the inside. The more remote possiblity is that you have a short somewhere in the wiring harness. It is always typical for a component to go bad before a harness.

Here are some notes directly from chrysler, let me know if you need any clarification:

Testing and Inspection Notes WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIR-BAGS, REFER TO AIRBAGS AND SEAT BELTS/AIRBAGS BEFORE ATTEMPTING STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Remove the lower steering column cover/knee blocker. Check for continuity between the metal steering column jacket and a good ground. There should be continuity If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, refer to Steering and Suspension/Steering Column and check for proper installation of the steering column mounting nuts.
  2. Remove the driver's airbag module. Unplug the horn switch wire connector. Remove the horn relay from the Power Distribution Center (PDC) . Check for continuity between the steering column half of the horn switch feed wire connector and a good ground. There should be no continuity If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, repair the short circuit as required.
  3. Check for continuity between the steering column half of the horn switch feed wire connector and the horn relay control circuit cavity for the horn relay in the PDC. There should be continuity If OK, go to Step 4. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.
  4. Check for continuity between the horn switch feed wire and the horn switch ground wire on the airbag module. There should be no continuity If OK, go to Step 5. If not OK, replace the faulty horn switch.
  5. Depress the center of the airbag module cover and check for continuity between the horn switch feed wire and the horn switch ground wire on the airbag module. There should be continuity If not OK, replace the faulty horn switch.
