Need some info ,, can you tell me witch fuse number on the fuse panel is shorting out for the cluster
and can you also tell me if the air bag lamp is also flashing when driving
we can go back and forth on this page
The fuse on the instrument lights is 18 a 5A the horn is nor blowing fuses just honking all the time, and dis nor notice the air bag light but do not drive it because I am afraid the air bag will deploy. I took the horn fuse out to stop it from honking it was a high current # XXXXX 20A under the hood.
THIS may all be related , due to the cruse switches get illuminated by fuse 18 and the horn is going of, I would remove the drivers air bag and see whats going on under it ,, may have a short there --- do not worry the air bag will not go off, do this a lot , no problem , remove the two caps on either side of the steering wheel , then remove the two 8 mm bolts that hold the air bag in place and it comes out , then you can unplug it and set aside,, then look at the wireing in the steering wheel for shorts .. again dont worry the air bag will not go off, been doing this for over 23 years and never had one go off on me ,,
