Horn Location

Can anyone tell me the exact locatin of the horn in my 1994 Aerostar?

Also to replace the Clockspring- does the airbag cover pop off? I don't want to force it unless I'm sure I won't eat the airbag.

John,

In my 92 the airbag is bolted to the steering wheel with 4 bolts. Access them from the rear with a socket and short extension. Be sure you disconnect the battery and the air bag backup power supply before messing with the air bag. From my Chilton's manual, " the (backup) power supply is a capacitor that will leak down in approximately 15 minutes after the battery has been disconnected, or in 1 minute if the battery positive cable is grounded. It is located in the instrument panel and is combined with the diagnostic monitor."

Therefore, disconnect the battery. Wait fifteen to twenty minutes. Then remove the four bolts from the back of the air bag module and slowly remove the air bag module from the steering wheel. Disconnect the electrical connection from the air bag module and remove it from the van. Place the air bag module in a safe place away from anyone and safe from accidental dropping, hitting, etc. Remember, it is a pyrotechnic device so handle with care.

BTW, I remember seeing another post on this forum that talked about repairing the ribbon cable for the clockspring mechanism. Are you sure your problem is the clockspring or the connector? Does your air bag light blink, your horn not work, and your cruise control not work? These are indications of a bad clockspring or cable.

LOL

Ron

fyi, on my 91 i think the horn is under the air intake box ( thing with the air filter in it) the air bow has two or three bolts holding it in, mine were corroded bad. the under that is the horn. i think it has one screw holding in onto the fender. it apparently has an adjustment screw on it also.. mine quit for a while, and came back to life on its own. good luck rick
