Yes, go to a auto parts and get any horn and plug it in have it mounted. God i hate those damn dealership ignorant,lieing,**** they call mechanics. all they are are thieves who dwell on raping you for anything they can get. what pisses me off the most is they lie right to your face so they charge the top dollar with no respect to the customer who pays them to have the job in the first place. Fnnnn bastards, ok i got to get off comp for a while good luck.

2000 plymouth breeze horn wont stop going off by itself

I can tell you where the problem is, and what it is, but I can't tell you exactly how to fix it, not being there to see it.
It is behind your horn pad on the steering wheel, that's where. What happened is the horn wire there is being grounded unintentionally.
Normally, when you press the pad to sound the horn, you are grounding the wire from the horn there. A metal clip makes contact with the horn wire, grounding it so the horn will work. Something on yours has come out of place, maybe a metal button or spring or clip is extending too far and touching the horn wire when youj turn the wheel.
If you can get behind the horn pad or button, you might spot the problem. But that is where it is. Good luck.

I have a 1983 cj7 and am trying to replace the steering wheel, and in the process fix the blinker switch and reconnect the horn. There is a horn terminal, but only one that I see. How is the circuit...

If you found two wires, they both attach to the horn pad on the wheel...Unless there is something wrong with the horn or relay, touching them together should make the horn blow. The pad is two separate plates. When you push on the pad the two plates come together and make contact just like touching the wires together. Hot wire the horn to the battery and test it, then check the horn relay if the horn itself works, but touching the wires together or grounding either of them dosen't work..

1996 Chrysler Cirrus horn wouldn't stop beeping too!!!

was it hot outside-heat could deform the steering wheel horn pad and make the horn go off,remove the horn pad and airbag unit(take fuse out for airbag system wait a few mins)then put the fuse that you removed back in place and see if the horn goes off again.

Screwed on break job?

Sound like most of your money went into his pocket. I use only the best brakes (most expensive pads on my stuff and my customers) usually purchased from a dealer. O. E. is the best (Original Equipment)

Horn button on 98 Sienna

I just took a look into my steering wheel horn set up.
It is defective design. Only one of the two contact plates are connected. The ground from the spiral cable is not used for the horn. I can fix the first part, but the latter part will need a consult with Toyota service dept or HQ. If you have the same problem, let Toyota and know about the problem. I've read a lot of fixes that didn't work. The normal suspects on the horn are: relay, horn (use the alarm to check or by pass the relay), spiral cable, contact plate, but my new one is that one of the contact plate is not connected and ground from spiral cable is not used for the horn. Just indirect contact from the steering shaft. You need to know haw to remove the air bag to look at that area.

Horn died

It is either the rotating contact under the steering wheel that connects the horn button to the horn relay, or the horn relay and or the horn itself.

Pontiac Aztek GT

Ours did the exact same thing. It eventually did the 'disco effect' where the head lights were flashing constantly and horn honking. It would only stop if we took the fuse for the Body Control Module out for 30 seconds.
Only that was a temporary fix. It finally got so bad that the car locked itself down and we had to take it in. The BCM had to be replaced (cost us $350) and it seems to do a lot better, but the radio is still locked but it might just have to be reset. Hope it helps!
