Horn honks when wheel is turned

When outside temperature goes below 33 degrees,you turn the wheel left or right the horn will toot. If you park the vehicle with the wheel turned either way the horn will start honking until you go out and straighten the wheel. The horn toots while you are driving down the road and turn left or right.

SOURCE: 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer horn not honking

check all the wiring in the stearing wheel. Cover should screw off from the back side. Make sure the horn is hooked up. Should be in the front bumper. If it still dont work then buy a new one. Should run about fiftenn bucks.

You can remove the horn relay and use a Ohm meter and check the resistance between the horn relay connector terminal No. 86 (Black Wire) and ground. If the ohms are less then 5 ohms replace the horn relay. There are a lot more tests but as Polarcycle states you can do what he suggested other then I believe you have two horns in this vehicle.

SOURCE: Keyless remote locks the doors but the horn doesn't honk.

First and foremost: THANK YOU! Leave it this way! That horn honk is annoying. There is an option on cars with factory alarms to disable the (annoying) horn feature by removing and re-inserting an electronic key usually found somewhere below the steering wheel. There is no problem with your alarm.

Hope this helped,
matt

sounds like your clock spring, this is an ugly device that allows you to turn your steering wheel without tangling your wires, you need to remove your air bag / horn button, these are normally attached with tamper proof screws then remove the steering wheel using a puller. then you have found the problem

I just replaced my turn signal switch in my 82 not 84 rampage. it works fine but when I replace the steering wheel, the horn honks and won't stop.when I look at the switch, I don't know how it...


I don't have a diagram, but if I understand what you're saying, there is a copper ring at the top of the steering column, visible before you install the steering wheel. The copper pin is connected to the horn button. The intent being that when you press the horn button, it completes the ground from the steering wheel through the horn button, through the pin, to the copper ring.
If this is correct, there should be no contact between the steering wheel and the copper ring other than the pin. Check to see if there may have been a spacer (washer, etc) below the steering wheel on the steering shaft that holds it just far enough away from the copper ring so that only the copper pin makes contact.

My horn has been sticking here lately. Sometimes going over bumps in the road will make it honk. The dealership said that the springs were probably getting weak. I don't have the money to replace the air...


If you are intending on disconnecting the horn for now, simply unplug the harness at the horn. Just toot the horn and follow your ears.

Hope this helps.

1996 SC2 saturn I hit my horn and it stayed on.Disconnected the battery to turn it off. Reconnected battery now it wont work. Check the fuse, it looks fine. Is the horn bad? Where is the horn located?...


From what you say I would first replace the horn relay, in the fuse block, if that does not do it I would suspect the horn switch in the steering wheel. If you must, you can disconnect the horn from its plug and jumper the battery right to it with an old extension cord. You will find the horn, looks like a small black fat in the center pancake with a horn opening, more or less under your left front headlight assembly and to the left of the radiator. Bare the ends of the extension cord, have a confederate hold one set to the battery terminals and you touch the other ends briefly to the connectors on the horn. If it toots then your horn is not the bad guy. Relay is a cheap and easy first step, horn switch in the steering wheel is not so easy.

1998 cadillac, the horn just went off 3am in the morning, would not stop..until I pushed on the steering wheel part of the horn..car was locked..I had to get out of bed to stop it! WHY WOULD IT JUST GO...


I have a 1977 Cadillac Seville and it does the same thing, and when the outside temperature drops below 65 degrees the horn will sound continuously until either the horn relay or the horn fuse is removed.

The problem is in the horn pad on the steering wheel, and the contact plates inside of the horn pad are too close together (a manufacturing defect) and when the temperature drops down to a certain degree then the horn pad will contract and cause the metal contact plates inside of the horn pad to touch and make contact, and it is same thing as if you were pushing on the horn pad.

I have also heard of the exact opposite happening and when the temperature gets too hot the horn pad will expand and cause the metal contact plates to touch and make contact and activating the horn.

97 Jetta GLS - Horn honks when I turn the wheel to the left


sounds like there is something in the wrong place in the horn button. it makes contact when you turn left just as if you had pushed the horn button. i wonder does your airbag light ever come on, i mean not just in the startup sequence, that's normal. probably you need to take the horn button part of the steering wheel apart and get things back in the right place or maybe replace some parts, but because of the airbag being right there too it's not something i would recommend that you do yourself. accidentally setting off an airbag is not a good thing.

Horn wont stop


sounds like the horn contact terminal inside the steering wheel got disconnected and is hitting a metal part of the steering column which triggers the horn. the terminal that got disconnected is probably has positive polarity and the metal part of the steering column has negative polarity. If they come in contact with each other... *honk* *honk*

2004 yukon horn problem


The steering wheel needs to pulled off, there is a short somewhere in there. Better have it done, cause if it isn't done right, the air bag can deploy.
