I had to go to a salvage yard and purchase an air bag (which include the horn contacts) to repair my horn. The wiper washer could be a list of things. Does your fluid run out on the ground? - broken washer hose? Listen by your lower right front fender behind the wheel and have someone push your washer lever and see if you can hear the pump running. If not, could be a pump motor (check with a test light after pulling the inner fender) or the multi-function lever in the steering column.

Since replacing the ignition key cylinder, no tail lights or interior lights work on 1996 Plymouth Voyager


What all did you disconnect ? Did you disconnect any connectors to the BCM - body control module ? All the thing's your having troubles with are controlled by the BCM . The wiper switch is an input to the BCM , the BCM controls the wipers by energizing two different relays . wiper on relay & wiper high low relay .

Since horn didn't work, tried to take off dash ???? Why ? didn't need to do that . Do you know what a relay is ? Horn relay is located in the under hood fuse / relay box . You could have tested right at the relay base - where it plugs in .

Car horn doesn't work, airbag light on, but car alarm works


The problem is likely with the clockspring in the steering column. The wiring for the horn button and the driver's air bag go through the clockspring. If you want to fix it yourself, I can probably find the procedure for you, but this is really a job for a professional auto electrician.

What your hearing is the factory alarm not the horn. Connect the battery when the alarm sounds go to the drivers door lock with the key and lock and unlock the door until the alarm goes off . Then reinstall the fuse for the horn.,

The horn for the alarm is located beside the wiper motor assembly. You'll need to remove the wiper arm assy so you can remove the cowl panel and access the electric horn.
