Question about 1999 Dodge Ram

Open Question

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500, with the factory security system (no remote start) and the horn honks continuously no matter if the truck is running or not.

So I bought a new Horn Relay thinking that was probably the problem and replaced it, but it still didn't fix it. I have pulled the Security System Relay in the Fuse box under the hood behind the battery and reinstalled the horn relay and it still honks continuously. I have checked the horn buttons on the steering wheel airbag pad and they seem to be working but there is no way to tell because when i reinstall the horn relay the horn goes off continuously.

Check the horn actuating contact at the centre of the steering wheel. It may be damaged or mis-aligned.
Also check the carbon contact that runs on the slip ring under the steering wheel (associated with steering wheel horn actuate switch) It may be damaged or mis-aligned.

If none of the above are faulty, you should look for a possible intermittent short to ground on the horn actuation control wiring.

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.

Trying to jump start my 2000 Lexus RX300. Horn keeps going off so I pulled the fuse and disconnected the horn but there is another horn that is sounding when I try to jump start my battery


Open hood ensure new battery is disconnected.
Open main fuse panel cover under hood and remove horn relay (so you don't have to listen to the horn).
Use the key to lock the drivers door.
Connect the positive battery terminal.
Connect the negative battery terminal (security system will now activate, hazards lights will flash and horn would be going off if the relay was not removed).
Use the key to unlock the drivers door.
Get in, close drivers door.
Use the key to start the engine.
Security system will deactivate.
Get out of vehicle, reinstall horn relay, replace fuse panel cover, close hood.

How do I fix my car


If you have a factory security system, you may have an issue somewhere. In that case and you want the security system to work (I would) you need to see dealer, competent repair shop or up to date lock smith. A horn is and could be an important safety device. I wouldnt disable, I' get the it repaired. you probably have a short in the system, a bad horn ring or button, or a bad horn relay that has "welded it's points together" but unlikely.

My car battery got dead so I bought new battery and tried to replace the old one. As soon as I reconnected the terminals of the new battery the car started making panic horn noise. Its horn alarm goes on...


On some models you can disable the alarm after you connect the battery by locking and unlocking the driver door with the key.
I would disconnect the horn or pull the relay until you can get the alarm turned off.

Air suspension is dead on the ground fuse is good will not raise?


Check the suspension switch on the trunk, I think is on the driver side, something should happen if you turn it on/off.

Changing Sienna 2000 battery


The horn relay is stuck. The fuse box is right by the battery, remove the horn relay (it pulls straight out) and replace. The guide is in the lid. Removing the relay (or the 10A fuse, tool is also in the box) will stop the horn, but the relay's contacts are probably locked.

Sometimes just a little shock will dislodge the contacts that are locked together, but it's probably worth replacing with new.

My horn stopped working


well you have two choices you can run a new cicruit which means you need a wire to a fuse and then a wire to a switch and then to the horn and then ground and that will be some work. your other choice is much simpler. find where the old horn is and change the connector to fit the new horn. remove the old horn and replace the new horn in the old spot and ground the horn if you need to since some have a one wire and a body ground so you wont need to hook the ground to anything but the bolt if you need to do that.
