If you can locate the horn wires from the column and connect those two together momentary and the horn blows, then your clock spring is bad. Given the two symptoms your dealing with that's what it sounds like. There should be power going to the clock spring if you have a multimeter. Please be sure to locate the horn wires. Do not randomly probe wires as you could inadvertently set off the air bag.

Why would srs light stay on in my mitsubishi lancer 2003 model


A common reason is that the clock spring assembly in the steering wheel has failed. Next reason is the SRS computer has a problem.

Car horn doesn't work, airbag light on, but car alarm works


The problem is likely with the clockspring in the steering column. The wiring for the horn button and the driver's air bag go through the clockspring. If you want to fix it yourself, I can probably find the procedure for you, but this is really a job for a professional auto electrician.

Airbag light is on and the horn doesn't blow could this be a battery problem


Airbag light AND no horn is most likely a clockspring problem (Wiring coiled up like a spring connecting the wheel to the column and alllowing a connection at all turning angles)

How do you troubleshoot a defective horn 2001 ford crown victoria?


Find the horn and use a test light to try to ground out one of the two terminals to see if it sounds. If it does, then the horn is ok, but it may be the switch in the steering wheel.

To test the steering wheel switch, take the horn cover off of the steering wheel and search for the lead for the button and try to ground it out. It may sound if you do this. If it does, then there is something wrong with the button connection at the clock spring.

Here are instructions on how to remove and replace the steering wheel which can help to understand how to troubleshoot the horn switch which is related to the clock spring electrical connector:

Steering Wheel Removal & Installation To Remove:
NOTE: Make sure the wheels are in the straight-ahead position. Disconnect the battery ground cable and wait at least one minute.
WARNING
To avoid the risk of serious personal injury, read and follow all warnings, notes and instructions in the deactivation procedure. Deactivate the supplemental restraint system (SRS).
  1. Remove the driver side air bag.
  2. Disconnect the clockspring electrical connector.
  3. Remove and discard the steering wheel bolt.
  4. Use steering wheel puller and remove steering wheel.
CAUTION
Removing the steering wheel without using a puller can damage the column bearings. Using a suitable puller, remove the steering wheel.
Remove the steering wheel while routing the wires from the clockspring through the steering wheel.
WARNING
To avoid the risk of serious personal injury, read and follow all warnings, notes and instructions in the reactivation procedure. Reactivate the supplemental restraint system (SRS).
To Install:
  1. Install steering wheel, while guiding wires from clockspring through.
  2. Install new steering wheel bolt. Tighten to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).
  3. Connect the clockspring electrical connector.
  4. Install the driver's side air bag.

2001 chevy astro van horn does not work already replaced 20amp fuse any suggestion.


really need more information. does your air bag light stay on, if so your clockspring below the steering wheel could be bad. disconnected the wires at your horn and with a test light see if the light comes on at the wire while someone presses the horn. if it does the horns are bad. there should be a horn relay under the hood for the horn. it could be bad. i hope this helps.

My service airbag light is on with picture


You're going to need a scan tool that has the ability to pull codes for srs. Otherwise, there is no way to diag, unless the horn doesn't work too. then replace the clockspring.

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer horn not honking


Usually when the horn doesn't honk it's a blown fuse

try running the ODB sensor on it... it should tell you the code...

then you can look the code up and it should tell you the problems...


Usually AutoZone or Advanced Discount Auto will do this for free for you :)
