Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
My horn suddenly started blaring in the middle of the night and continued until the fuse burnt out. I replace the fuse and it started again, so swopped out the relay, but it continued. I believe the clockspring is my next step, which could be the issue, as the cruise control hasnt been working for a good 3 years. But I have heard that if the clockspring goes the airbag light also comes on, but mine doesnt. Is it possible that different items (cruise control, horn, airbag) on the clockspring could give up without affecting the functioning of the others?
If you unplug the clock spring on the back side and the horn will stop then remove the air bag and check the switches and wires inside the steering wheel

sounds like you have a bad horn or a wire has come off the horns can you feel the relay click when you press the horn inside the car?
the horns (two) on cars are usually located forward of the radiator and behind the grill. Sometimes they are better reached from below the car. And usually you need to remove some plastic shield to get to them. The fuse is in the fuse box and should be marked as is the horn relay.

Yes, it sounds like the connector on the horn could have been accidentally unplugged while the work was being done.
The horn is under the hood very near the front grill on left or right side.

I had the same problem and yes, it was covered by the recall warranty - clockspring, which my dealer replaced for nothing. The warranty recall is lifetime, so it doesn't matter how old the vehicle is or if you are the original owner.

You will have to replace the entire clockspring. I highly recommend having it done at a repair shop because it involves removing the air bag which contains a small explosive device and can be dangerous to someone not trained in removing it.

if you check the wire that comes from the horn button to the relay for voltage when the horn is pushed and have voltage then you have a bad relay,if not then you probably have bad contacts in the horn pad area or even the clock spring itself.
