Customer Question
loud. I have had so...
My 2004 PT crusier horn is sounding sad. It honks but not loud. I have had so much work on this beast, I do have an old man friend(ex-mechanic) that could help me but where would he start on my touring model
JA: The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Are those all of the "symptoms"?
Customer: think the locking system doesn't sound as strong and loud?
JA: Anything else I can tell the Chrysler Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: no, just want to avoid taking to shop again!! it only has 87k on it thanks
JA: Got it. Let's get this figured out. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chrysler Mechanic about your situation and connect you two. You'll be on the road in no time.
JA: Waiting to talk to the expert reminds me of the time I talked to an expert when I had problems with my new cats. My three cats all came from a rescue mission and were scrawny scared little creatures when I got them. Who could ever be mean to a cat?

did you answer my question
Chrysler Mechanic: mike switzer,

sounds like the clockspring or spiral cable behind steering wheel is going out. you would need to remove the steering wheel to access this part. this includes removing the airbag which i recommend having a local garage take care of so as to not set off the air bag. your horn circuit has to go through this spiral cable and because of the constant movement it is very common for them to go bad. this is were i would start.

if he is capable of removing the airbag and testing i can help u further but airbags are dangerous and expensive. this is why i recommend having a shop mess with it. if they set it off they have to pay for it.

if you have no further questions i would appreciate a rating as this is how i am credited by the site.

i am sorry for your troubles with this vehicle although all vehicles have spiral cables now and all have the same issue. just a friendly reminder to leave me a positive review as i am not paid until you do so. you have already paid the site and they pay us from that only after you leave a star rating. so it would defintly be appreciated.

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
