Cruise control and horn stopped working


Check your fuses first, then a vacuum leek second. To reset the air bag light unplug the battery for 30 seconds then reconnect. If the light comes back on take it to a garage as the air bag can be very dangerous.

Horn doesnt work and air bag light is on


check the fuses,, the air bag light will come on if the battery has been disconnected for a long time, so if this is the case, check the fuse for the horn, the system may reset itself, if not,, unhook the battery wait 5 minutes, and hook it back up , it should clear

Horn ha stopped working completely; was told by mechanic that it needs a sensor which costs $300+; what happened to the old replace the fuse?


Why would a horn require a sensor?
I don't buy it.
Tell us more on the make, model, and year.
If someone told me the horn was $300, I would wire a new horn and button on the dash for $15.

When driving, my horn on my 1999 Chrysler Cirrus blows randomly and will not stop until I hit repeatedly in the center of steering wheel. What can I do that is cheap and quick to stop this?


I have or should say had same issue on 1996 cirrus quick fix just remove the HORN RELAY located on the left side of dash relay only controls horn. To really solve the issue at hand you must replace the clock spring on the steering wheel dis-arm air bag before messing with steering wheel to avoid activation of air bag disconnect battery for 10 min then its safe to fiddle with steering wheel safely.

Horn wont work but works with the panic button


The computer controls the horn and looks for a signal from the Remote Keyless Entry system or the horn button. Due to the fact that the horn works with the RKE but not when you press the horn button, would cause me to suspect that the Clock Spring mechanism, which is also used to activate the Driver's Air Bag, might be malfunctioning. When the Clock Spring breaks, the computer does not get a signal from the horn button so it can not opperate the horn. If I remember correctly, when the Clock Spring goes out, the Air Bag light on the dash either does not light up for 2 seconds when you first start the vehicle, or it comes on and stays on all the time, which is to let you know that the Air Bag is not functioning, and the primary cause is the Clock Spring. So check your owners manual to see if the Air Bag warning light on the dash is functioning normally. Your local Chrysler dealer can quickly and easily check the function of the Clock Spring, Horn, and Air Bag system, through the use of the DRB scan tool. If it is in fact the Clock Spring that is malfunctioning, the Air Bag module and the steering wheel must be removed in order to replace the Clock Spring, which should be left to a trained professional, that has been educated on the proper handling of the Air Bag system. You wouldn't want to accidentally deploy the Air Bag, as you could be injured. That and Air Bag modules can be expensive to replace.

Cruise control stopped working horn doesn't work Air bag light is on


If the air bag light is on, the horn does not sound when the pad is depressed (but does souns when you activate the alarm) and the cruise control doesn't work (but the lamp lights up when you first turn the key on), your issue is probably with the clockspring. This is a device that keeps an electrical connection between the steering wheel and the rest of the car regardless of steering wheel position.
