My horn is having problems. By pressing hard on the horn I can always get it to sound. The problem is that half the time it will stutter or sound for just a split-second and then stop. A couple more presses and I can usually get a good sound out of it. However, the unreliability is becoming a safety problem.
I disarmed then removed the airbag module and looked at the horn plate on the back. It'* clean and doesn't look corroded or clogged. There doesn't appear to be any kind of switch or electrical contact underneath that horn plate... I'm guessing the plate just works by making contact with the steering wheel shaft when you push on it. The shaft does not look completely clean, in fact the end of it is kind of stained red, instead of being shiny metal. Should I be trying to sand the grime off it? Or am I completely wrong about how the circuit works?
