    Did that, did not fix the problem. the small spring that depresses when you press the horn ring may need to be replaced and/or shorting out. Impossible to find the part needed.

What is causing horn from steering wheel not to work?

You will need a wiring diagram but test the power to the column multi plug to see if power is available. Then carefully ground that wire and see if the horn sounds. The horn contact is basically a brass ring and a sliding contact to allow the passage of current as the wheel is turned. Operating the horn is just grounding the supply via the ring. It works off the FOB by a separate relay triggered by the signal.

Saturn Keep blowing horn fuse

Could be a short in the steering wheel or column. Or a faulty horn relay.
You may need a wiring diagram to trace the circuits from the relay.
Usually the black wire is the ground and the green is voltage from the relay.

How to fix horn

First go to horn, its in the right side (passenger side) very front behind bumper. Turn wheel to the right, remove inner fender well, locate horn. Check to see if you have 12V there when the horn is activated to ensure its not just a horn. If there is 12V and ground and horn doesn't sound, you'll need a new horn. If voltage is good then back track to the horn relay, it should be under the hood electrical center (some earlier models were under the dash below steering wheel. If you press on the horn in the steering wheel, you should hear it click to locate. If not check the black wire going up the steering column, when jumpered to ground and horn sounds then the problem is inside the steering wheel, horn ring or contacts on the pad are faulty.

My turn signals and brake lights no longer are working I checked all the fuses and they are fine. I didnt know if there was some kind of relay located near the fuse box, that may be shot?

there is no relay for the brakes but there is separate flasher for the signals. Your problem is more likely a wiring or switch issue, as these systems use the same bulbs. Check the wiring at the back of the truck. If someone put a trailer connection in there, that might be the problem. If not, the stop light wires go up the steering column to the turn switch and then back down to the lights. I have pasted your wiring diagram below and also instructions for getting to the switch in the steering column. This requires a couple special tools that you may be able to rent or borrow. Sorry this is not good news...


Turn switch access:

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Remove the steering column trim.
  • Remove the horn pad from the steering wheel.
    • Remove the steering wheel and horn collar.
    • Use a suitable puller to remove the steering wheel.
    • With a suitable compressor, compress the preload spring to the lock plate. Compress the spring only enough to remove the snap ring.
    • Use a pick and a small flat blade screwdriver to remove the snap ring.
    • Remove the lock plate, horn contact carrier, and spring.
    • Remove the bolts at the upper steering column support and the upper mounting bracket from the column.
    • Disconnect the turn signal wiring connector.
    • Wrap tape around the wire and connector.
    • Remove the hazard warning knob from the column.
    • Remove the switch retaining screws and remove the switch.

    Horn blows constantly, doesn,t blow the fuse or anything else. can this problem be outside of the horn blowing assy. on the steering wheel? it,s a 2000 galant. problem occurs all the time if the switch is...

    • The horn relay might have welded contacts (stuck in the on position). Pulling the relay should stop the horn.
    • The wiring harness on the steering column might have a broken wire to the horn relay shorting to someplace that applies power to the relay. In this case, turning the steering wheel all the way to one side or the other may stop the horn, and it won't sound when you press the horn button.
    • The horn button in the steering wheel is stuck on or shorted.

    I have a 63 Ford T-Bird that I can't get the horn to work. I have checked the wires and the grounds and they look good. The horns work when I tested them also but when I put the steering column together...

    You missed something putting the column back together. IDK the design of the wheel, but if all the wires to the column are good, I'd look at the switch itself in the column. Probably not making contact.

    Steering column is becoming loose on 1997 Buick Lesabre. I would like detailed instructions on removing the air bag module and steering wheel enouhg to get to where it needs to be tightened.

    Yes there are four bolts halfway down col. this removal procedure may help.REMOVE OR DISCONNECT
    1. Disable SIR System.
    2. Two screws at back of steering wheel.
    3. Position inflator module to gain access to wire connectors. Note wire routing for assembly reference.
    4. Push in and rotate horn contact lead counterclockwise, and remove from the steering column horn tower.
    5. Horn contact lead.
    6. Retainer (CPA) from SIR wiring connector.
    7. SIR wiring connector from inflater module.
    8. On models so equipped, disconnect steering wheel control switch connector.
    9. Inflater module. WARNING: When carrying a live inflator module, make sure bag and trim cover are pointed away from body. Never carry the Inflator module by wires or connector on underside of module. In case of an accidental deployment, bag will then deploy with minimal chance of injury. When placing a live inflator module on a bench or other surface, always face the bag and trim cover away from surface. Never rest a steering column on the steering wheel with inflator module face down and column vertical. This is necessary so that a free space is provided to allow air bag to expand in the unlikely event of accidental deployment. Otherwise personal injury may result.
    1. Steering wheel control switch connector it equipped.
    2. Retainer (CPA) to SIR wiring connector.
    3. Route horn contact lead to steering column tower; push lead into horn tower and rotate clockwise to locked position.
    4. Horn ground lead.
    5. SIR connector and retainer (CPA).
    6. Inflator module to steering wheel. Install top surface of module first to ease assembly and fit. Do not pinch any wires.
    7. Two screws through back of steering wheel to inflator module.
      • Tighten screws to 3 Nm (27 inch lbs.).
    1. Enable SIR system
