Remove the airbag from the steering wheel and inspect the wiring behind it. Make sure it is not pinched between the airbag mounting bolts and the steering wheel. Then rest the air bag back on the steering wheel in place and leave the 2 bolts out. Then reconnect the battery and check for the horn going off. Also, if the air bag was installed crooked, the horn will sound. The contacts are on the back of the airbag.
Let me restate that.
Disconnect the battery.
Then unbolt the airbag and inspect the wiring to it.
Then, set it back into place but do not bolt it up.
Then reconnect the battery and see if the horn still goes off when the battery is connected.
problem. I'll be on line till 10 pm tonight Florida time.
No resets. there is a short in the steering column harness either in the clock spring or the harness that runs up the steering column to the clock spring and the switches. Below is wiring connector C218b. It is a 6 pin connector at the base of the steering column under the dash. Unplug it and see if the horn still sounds when the air bag is connected.
