2001 VW Bug Horn was randomly honking, Now it wont work at all. Relays and Fuses are good. Should I just replace the horn itself? Not quite sure whats the issue.Want to figure out before making drive


it the horn activates randomly when driving and when the steering wheel is moved , the problem will be the ground contact under the steering wheel
there is a small spring loaded button that runs on a slip ring in the back of the steering wheel and intermittent/ random operation can be traced back to a fault in this area
the horn works so it is good , the fuses and relays are working to make the horn work so they are good ( unless there is a grounding problem with the relay causing the relay to operate and blow the horn)

2003 acura tl horn does not work when pressed but alarm horn works


If the alarm horn is the same unit used as the car horn then your problem is the contacts for when the horn is pressed. Some horns are activated by pressing the large center area of the steering wheel others have little buttons on the left and right side of the steering wheel. If the latter is the case make sure you try both pressure buttons to see if horn will work. Either way the contacts have to be cleaned or the wheel needs to be adjusted to allow the contacts to touch each other when pressed. That's most likely your problem.

Horn does not work jeep liberty


The likely cause of this is a defective rotating printed circuit coiled contact under the steering wheel, it is referred to as the "clock-spring" contact coil. To replace it requires the very dangerous airbag system be disarmed and the steering wheel removed, it is directly under the wheel. Before replacing any parts have the problem diagnosed to confirmed my guess work.

Horn not working


The problem is likely the rotating coiled ribbon contact under the steering wheel called the "Clock Spring" Always disarm the Airbag system before starting any work on the system.

1999 Durango 5.9 horn doesn't work from steering wheel but does when setting the factory car alarm. (I assume it's the same horn.)


If it is the same horn, there is probably something in the area where you push to activate the horn. The horn itself is obviously working so there is no fuse problems, most likely your problem is in the steering wheel.

when I had that problem it was the contacts under the steering wheel pull the steering wheel and you will see a copper ring the horn is connected to ground out that copper ring against the steering column if the horn sounds you have a worn contact I fixed mine by putting a spacer under that copper ring good luck with it

Steering wheel horn button not working 98 gulf


you need to find the wire connected to the horn of the vehicle and follow it back to through the firewall and make sure that it is connected to the horn itself. If not you will need to run another one. Also check the fuses
