The horn is going off when every pressure is applied to the top or bottom of the steering wheel rim. Removed the airbag and I don't see any shorted wires. The horn wire goes to a spring loaded contact near the center of the wheel. Appears to be a brass disk located behind the steering wheel that the horn contact makes connection to for the horn circuit. Is this part of the clock spring or a separate part? Does someone have a good parts breakdown for the upper steering column for this vehicle?
Changed the altinator and battery
Old switch factory, new switch came from a similar year Malibu everything works and fits but horn stays on. I left the screw out when I installed so the horns contact doesn't hit the plate the turn signal s work, but its my wife's car and she needs a horn any ideas?
It ran fine for two days and the will turn over now but only stays on for less then a minute
What do you think the problem is
on the car
If I jiggle the key & keeping trying it will work sometimes. These is happening all of the time,
The key would not turn in the switch due to the tumbler cover being loose. I put a new switch in the car, proceeded to program the switch but the light never goes out. The car starts and runs without any problems. This is a car I am working on for a customer and I don't want her to have to worry about the light. What can I do?
just noticed the console gets hot on the drivers side by the shifter, when driving but does not get hot all the time.
Has mechanic check underneath found nothing so far.
Just wanted an expert opinion, why this happens or if normal.
Never noticed it happening before.
I stopped and turned off the can and now I can not turn the key can't get out of gear to move it how can I fit this
So my brother left for bootcamp and failed to tell me everything that was wrong with it, so far it's been easy stuff like the break light assembly and a sending unit.. Until I go to take my driving test and they check to make sure my horn works

I had no idea it was broken, I don't even know why or how it happened since he doesn't write me back. It could have been hit too hard and broke something, he could have disconnected it for all I know..

I would just like to know the safest way to go about trying to fix it, and what move I should make first (under the hood, in the steering wheel, etc.) especially with the air bag being where it is.

Please and thank you! <3
oil leaking but not at oil filter pan bolt valve covers ? engine has a pretty profound chirping noise always not really a squeal from as might come from serpentine belt I don't think. but im a shade tree mechanic and don't know anyone have similar problems
My interiror felt on the board is dry rotted and was wondering how I could fix it without making it look bad. I wanted to maybeput gray or black felt back on but not sure if i could take the board off to do it or what.
