Question about 2002 Ford F250 Super Duty SuperCab

1 Answer

My 1999 7.3 diesel f250's airbag light flashes and the horn doesn't work. When you blow the horn you hear the relay (or whatever its called) in the fuse box click but no horn sound is heard.I bought this truck used and I'm sure it has been wrecked before I bought it. I just want the dang horn to work. I can deal with the flashing airbag light. Does anybody have any ideas ????

If the relay is clicking when you push the horn button then i would say there is a problem with the horn, if you can get to the horn tap on it with a small hammer or unplug the wire and test it with a test lite

    have you checked the fuses? the manual will tell you if the airbag sensor and the horn are on the same fuse. and that airbag light... i wouldnt drive it around like that forever. when you get the horn working if the airbag is not, take it to the dealership. as for the horn look in the owners manual it will tell you which fuse to check. and also the wire going to the horn will not light up a test light unless you are laying on the horn and the fuse is good.

2001 f250 airbag light came on horn won't work or cruise controls or automatic hubs won't lock. Is this all connected? It happened at the same time


The horn switch and the air bag and cruise control wiring in the steering wheel go through the clock spring, ford calls it air bag sliding contact. The clock springs have been know to go bad.

Horn no blow


check for blowed fuse or bad relay, you can hook test light to see if horn getting power when you press horn pad if fuse and relay okay,remove horn and hot wire it if it blows, more likely horn pad with airbag in steering wheel bad,if horn pad bad you have to replace whole airbag with with horn pad as a unit.if horn dont blow when hot wired then horn it self is bad.

I have a dodge caravan 2000, and the horn doesn't work. I changed the relay fuse and fuses. It still doesn't work. Please help.


REMOVE HOTWIRE HORN OR PRESS REMOTE BUTTON LOCK CAR DOORS IF YOU HEAR CAR HORN BLOWS WHEN ACTIVATE CAR ALARM. HORN WORKING.MORE LIKELY THE AIRBAG AND HORN PAD NEED REPLACING.IF YOU GOING TO FIX. DISABLE AIRBAG IN THE STEERING WHEEL BEFORE REPLACING THE AIRBAG AND HORN PAD. TURN OFF RADIO.THEN DISCONNECT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE FOR 20 MINUTES BEFORE REMOVING AIRBAG IN STEERING WHEEL.THAT HORN PAD WITH AIRBAG IS NOT GOING TO BE CHEAP.

2004 F250 diesel Cruise control and horn stopped working after horn started blowing by itself then it stopped by itself after several minutes and now the fuise blows when you hit the horn


Hi, assuming you have cruise controls on the steering wheel, I would say your clockspring has failed. The contacts for the horn must be crossed with the cruise contacts. Replacement requires removal of the steering wheel (special tool) and airbag, etc. Please let me know if you would like instructions.

My horn hasn't worked in over 8 months and now all of a sudden when I'm driving it just keeps honking and won't stop on my 1999 dodge caravan


This sounds like a bad horn relay or the horn pads is bad,i would start by disconnecting the horn pad,caution with airbag,but if you remove the steering wheel cover and dissconnect horn button wires and then drive if horn still blows then you havea bad relay, if it doesnt blow anymore then the pad is bad ,

Horn not working on 1999 z28 camaro / what could


Well, it could be a fuse. Check the associated fuse, if it is ok then proceed to checking for power at the horn (it should have 12v). If the horn has power then replace the horn. If it does not then seek proffesional certified help due to the fact that the problem is going to be in the steering column or horn pad, and that will require dealing with the airbag system (which is NOT recommended) unless qualified.

Horn on my 1999 Ford Taurus


does your cruise control work? the reason is that there is a what is called a clockspring harness in the sterring wheel under the airbag, if your airbag light is flashing chances are this harness is broke and will need to be replaced,  The airbag, horn, and cruise control all go throught this clockspring harness.
