Sounds like the horn switch in the steering wheel is mashed flat in the closed position. This would be part of replacing the SRS in the steering wheel.

Additionally if the airbag deployed, the pyro loads in the seat belt retractors are most likely locked in place, and also need to be replaced, to have use the seat belts again. The seat belt locked in place is not a good operational usage of them, it is not like a 5 point harness, and can cause an injury if it is locked.

2010 Chevy Traverse airbag deployed when car was idling. The horn had stopped working and the fuse was being replaced.

I bet that made you jump!

It is safe now, because the airbag is now gone. The bag is in the wheel and that is where the horn is located. I suspect that there was some surge of power and the Body Control Module said to fire the bag. There are a number of sensors that trigger the bag, but none are supposed to go off unless you are doing more than 30MPH. The exception is side impact if stationary say at lights and you get broadsided.

Simply run a wire form the + side of your battery to your push button. Make sure you put a 20 amp inline fuse in it. Then run a wire from the other side of the push button to the horns.

2005 Cavalier horn does not work. Stearing wheel airbag missing?

no connection between air bag and horn operation
the air bag is in a section but that whole section presses to activate the horn
can be on either side bottom or top will work the horn
probably right that there is no air bag
you will have to remove the wheel to check the horn contact under the center bit
check for a horn relay operation first

I had an accident with my 1991 volvo 240 the air bag deployed. I took the air bag out and the car runs but the horn won't work. Do not know why

When the airbag goes off it burns the connection behind it in the clockspring. This also burns the connection for the horn, which also goes thru the clockspring.

My girlfriends car well the horn stop working?

Go to the horn remove the electrical connectors and jump it directly to the battery. if it works then you have to get the wiring diagram for the horn and check for B+ at the electrical connector to the horn,fuse and relay.
If all is good before you go to the horn switch protected by an air bag on the steering wheel READ THE SHOP MANUAL on stabilizing the air bag before you check out this switch. Remember this could be a $1200 dollar mistake if you deploy that air bag so be careful. Any problems write back I'll get you threw it.

Rx7 horn problem, connected directly 2 battery it works but when i push the horn i dosent and i cant locate the horn relay or fuse..

Did u check both fuse panel one under the hood the other in the cab under or on the side of the dash. Also sometimes the switch inside the stearing wheel will short or just stop working due to dust or excessive force. If the car has a drivers air bag it will be costly to replac this switch due to the explosives used in the air bag deployment system. good luck and good hunting
