I need help solving a horn problem with a 1999 Plymouth breeze. i thought i would see if this was something you have knowledge of, othewise you can pass it on to others.
it started out with the horn going off ocasionally when you were driving down the road. it did not necessarily hve anything to do with turning the steering wheel. it got to whre it did it more and more often, until it finally got to where it was blowing all the time. i assumed it was in the horn assembly, so i disconnected the battery
and removed the horn assembly/air bag. the gromets around the bolts were dry rotted, and it appeared that they might be allowing a continuous connection. While factory grommets were not available, i had some "O" rings that fit snugly over the bolts, and used them. i am rasonably confident i reinstalled the springs and spacer in the same manner that they were removed, but wsince i am still having a problem, i am questioning this. it ppears simepl. Spring, plastic spacer with narrow shoulder up, to fit inside horn bracket, bracket, then bolts with "O" rings.
When i reinstall the horn, it still blows all the time. I have tried several self test inside the stering wheel, but have not really learned anything. if i hook a test light to ground, when i touch the bolt, the horn blows. when i touch the horn bracket with the ground wire attached, it does not blow. if i press the horn bracket, the horn still does not blow. this is what makes me question the installation, but i have been unable to find an exploded view of the assembly to check this. As it is, i cannot figure out how, if i pres the horn bracket, how it is supposed to make contact with the bolt, which should complete the ground.
