Question about Ford Explorer
The horns themselves work fine when I direct connect them, the fuse is fine so it may be the steering column contact. How do I get the centre piece off the steering wheel and what do I check out from there?
It sounds like the switch. Try turning the steering wheel and operating the horn. If it functions intermittently while turning it is could be a short in the relay control wiring circuit inside the steering wheel, pinched horn switch wire under the driver airbag module, or defective horn switch. The switch is molded into the driver airbag Cover. When the driver airbag Cover is pressed, the horn switch makes contact to ground. The ground signal is carried to the horn relay and the horn sounds. The horn switch grounds to the airbag housing. If the switch is faulty the driver airbag module must be replaced. We strongly advise professional service when dealing with the restraint system.
