Stuck Horn

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man

Hello Bob,
My problem is that my 94 Saturn SL2's horn tends to stick. Instead of touching the middle of the steering wheel, I have two buttons. The upper right one works just fine, but the top left one doesn't work at all. The funny thing is that the horn only sticks (and stays on loudly) when I make sharp left hand turns or when the car is turned off and the wheel is turned to the left. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like you have a short in the harness that runs up the steering column. I am not sure how that particular car is set up, but I do know on other models that the harness connects the turn signals and the horn to the rest of the car. The harness runs down the interior of the steering column and connects under the dash. It should be replaceable. I would, however, recommend getting a service manual of some sort to see if this is something you are willing to take on.
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
