2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser Q&A
2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser Question: Horn likes to honk when ever it likes.
This is very embarrasing for my wife (her car). At stop lights and when someone is stopped in front of her. Horn BEEPS quickly. Sometimes will honk three times in succession. Sometimes we have a nonhonk day of driving!!! Other days about 15 honks just in the short times we drive it. Our car has 230,000 miles on it. W/O a lot of maintenance. We have replaced the timing belt upgrade at 110,000 miles, new belts then too, rebuilt the complete front suspension about 40,000 miles ago, complete valve job done 50,000 miles back. Couple of dash bulbs, taillite and headlite bulbs but that's it. It is my wife's baby and we are kind of committed to keeping it going if possible as we have her father in a care facility and the $$ for a new car just is not there. thanks for any real help. I have also replaced the fan assembly twice for the radiator. And replaced the CPU a couple of months back from Orielly Auto but did not correct this situation. Also the relays. - Shopman27
Remove...or have the horn button (airbag pad) removed, most likely find the problem there. Possibly the pad itself. Can remove relay until fixed! ... Is it really easy to make the horn blow... Slight touch of the horn pad??... Have seen them get 'mushy' inside and give this problem! Also for a quick fix... Universal add on horn button is available! Then Just disconnect HORN ground at pad.... IF not equipped and 'Air Bag' savvy.... Have a mechanic do the work!!!!! - pushrod
