    Default Intermittent horn honking while turning the steering wheel....

    This happened once before when I first got the car, I remember I called into 1g and the tech told me it had something to do with the contacts on the steering column and I had to take the wheel off and do something.... Grease the contacts or something.... but it was so long ago I forgot what it was.....

    Anyone remember the fix please let me know thanks!!
    Thanks,

    Hmmm. Sounds like the horn wire might touching ground somewhow. Worn insulation, loose connection at a horn button or in the column? Or a faulty horn button.

    Might have to stop using the horn buttons as steering knobs, Arty. Don't know if you're old enough to remember those cool knobs that used to get clamped to the wheel in the 40's and 50's. What ever happend to them? But that's off track......

    Cleaning and regreasing the contact ring isn't a bad idea when you have the wheel off too. From experience, dry ring and brushes can cause a squeek/squeal when turning the steering wheel especially in cold weather.
