My first problem is my horn stopped working. I don't use it too often and I tried to about a week ago but it no longer works. I popped the hood and I can hear the horn relay clicking when I press on the horn. This makes me think the horn is just no good but my cruise and airbag light have been flashing since I got the car and when I turn the wheel to the right I can hear the clockspring/spiral cable making noise. I saw on here that somebody was having the same problem and many thought it was the clockspring but the problem was never solved. If the clockspring was bad wouldn't the horn relay not make any sound?

My second problem is when I turn the wheel far left or right, at about 3/4 turned it just turns itself hard the rest of the way and stays there and I hear a clunk sound. The wheel also won't spring back it'll just stay there and make my car do circles all day long. I also have a problem with my car shifting back and forth and even sometimes turning pretty bad to one side when I brake. I'm thinking my cv axle maybe?

Any help on these problems would be greatly appreciated

Look at the wiring and grounds to the horns (there are two). It is unlikely that both are bad. The Horn relay operating indicates that the horn ring switch on the steering wheel & the Horn fuse are good.

You can quickly determine if the horn is the problem by applying 12V to it. Disconnect the wiring connected to the horn then using another 12V power source and connect it as follows:



...oh and if it's working cover your ears. ;)

Thank you guys. I took the bumper off and saw that all the wires had fallen off. I crimped new connectors on and it's good as new.

Any ideas on my suspension problems. I looked in the service manual and it said a poor steering wheel return and hard steering had about 10-12 possibilities so I'm wondering if anyone might be able to eliminate some of them.
