Taurus Horn Problem

I have a '99 Taurus and the horn has stopped working. Also, the airbag
light has come on. I have checked all the fuses and they are OK. The
horn also sounds when the doors are lock with the remote, so I assume
the horns themselves are working. I've come to the end of my meager
auto knowledge with this problem. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Richard

Sounds like it could be the clockspring under the steering wheel. The airbag
codes need to be read and go from there.

Re: Taurus Horn Problem

Thanks. After a little research, I think this is definitely the
problem. Is this something worth trying to fix yourself, or should it
go to a shop for repair?

Thanks again,
Richard

Its hard to say because I have no idea how much experiance you have or what
your abilities are....You need a steering wheel puller for sure too....Its
not rocket science though. Do you have a repair manual? That would help. It
would be a good idea to get the airbag code to see if it thats what it
shows.(open circuit to the drivers bag)
