    Yes, It seems like the contacts inside the steering column may be loose. I can get it to work with the steering wheel off but not when it is assembled.



    Thanks

    If you loosen the rod and jiggle it do the horns work?

The clip for my horn is broken, so horn not working, how can i change that?


It needs to be grounded to some metal part on the car. If the mount is rusted or broken you can drill a hole on the horn its self and attach a wire to it using a metal screw then attach the other end to something metal on the car.

Help my 95 ford windstar alarm or horn starts when I am driving and take a curve. What could it be and is it expensive?


It sounds like the wiring between the horn button on the steering wheel and the dashboard is chafing. The insulation has been slowly rubbed off due to movement of the steering wheel. This is the only point between the moving parts (steering wheel) and non-moving parts (steering column). When the steering wheel is turned, the wiring contacts other metal and simulates the horn button being pressed.

It shouldn't be an expensive repair - but contacting your trusted local mechanic will remove any questions. If you do not have a regular mechanic, check with several to to make sure you're getting a fair cost estimate.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Where is the 2004 Hummer H1 fuel pump relay located?


Most fuel-pump relay units are located under the dashboard near the steering column. In some cases, the unit is located in the area where the steering column is mounted or near the engine's firewall. The end of the fuel pump relay is typically located near the center of the floorboard, under the carpet in the front section of the passenger's or driver's side footwell.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The horn not workingI


The metal plate in reference above has small copper contacts. If they do not meet the horn will not work. We used a dremel on ALL of the contact point and it made no difference, the horn still only works about 5% of the time. After a whole lot of testing (I have the same issue with my 2000 Toyota Sienna) we found that the ground is weak, too weak for the relay most times. At this point I am going to run an alternate ground by "borrowing" the wire for the mute button for audio controls through the clock spring. The existing ground connects to the steering column. Before we discovered this I spent $285 on a new clock spring :(

The horn on my 1995 Dodge Dakota does not work. Believe the problem is somewhere in the steering column. What is that part called?


If its in the steering wheel or the column its called a relay, A lot of times, the horns burn out so I would recommend taking an electrical tester, unplugging the wire that simply slides over a metal tong on the horn, taking the tester and putting it in the metal contacts inside the plastic part that slides over the tong and having someone hit the horn and see if the tester lights up, or shows any sign of power. Hope that helps!

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 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.

Why would the horn not work?


This is usually caused by a defective contact under the steering wheel for the horn button to the harness in the steering column, the contact is called a clock-srping rotoating ribbon contact, this is the most common problem.
