Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Horn goes off all by it's self when car is off any time of day or night only way I could get it to stop was to pull horn fuse witch may disable airbag.possible cause is a clock spring in witch dealer claims to have never heard of before but when typed on line about it the problem it finishes your sentence. Sounds pretty common to me.this problem could cause the airbag to fail and cause injury to the driver or death

The horn goes off without warning. The first time is happened was a couple of months ago while driving down a city street at 6:10am (taking my child to school). The horn went off a various times (while driving down major city streets) for a few days. On Saturday 1/2/16 I started (in my driveway) the car and the horn went off. I pushed the steering wheel the horn stayed on, next I pushed the panic button, it stayed on until I pushed the panic button a second time about 2 minutes later. Then on the same day while driving on a (main city street) the horn went off four times within five minutes. However, each time it the horn turned off when I pushed the steering wheel. This morning 1/4/16 the horn went off several times back to back for about a minute, only turning off when I pushed the steering wheel. Did a google search and found 57 complaints (complaint.com) about the same horn problem. Suggested I add my voice to what is clearly a problem.

My horn goes off for no apparent reason. While driving down the road it goes off and to get it to stop I had to hold my hand lightly over the air bag and horn buttons on the steering wheel.

I am writing to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to file a complaint against the Fiat-Chrysler company. Since the beginning of February 2015, my horn has been going off when my is parked at night time, and therefore many complaints have been reported by my neighbors, when my horn automatically goes on during the hours of the night, it is very upsetting having to explain my situation to the neighbors. A technician at one of the Fiat-Chrysler repair centers diagnosed the problem and stated that the problem was the due to a bad switch that controls the driver's side airbag and horn, and that would cost over $1,000 to repair. The dealership stated that I would have to repair it because it wasn┐T recall issue. Because of the fact that I am on permanent disability and on a very low income, I am unable to afford to repair it. After realizing that there is no light in sight, I began to research as to how many other consumers/or Chrysler Sebring owners are experiencing the same problem as I am presently experiencing. I have discovered that there were approximately 52 complaints from Sebring car owners listed in the following site: www.carcomplaints.com/Chrysler/Sebring/2006/accessories-interior/horn_goes_off_by_itself.shtml thus I must request that the NHTSA's launch an investigation against the Fiat-Chrysler company by setting forth a recall to this subject matter. I am requesting a prompt reply for an immediate resolution to my situation, hoping the NHTSA can take this matter seriously before fatalities do occur on my behalf.

I am joining the many other owners who's horns go off, with out warning car off or car on. At the same time the horn now seems to have stopped working entirely leaving me no way to warn other drivers that do not see me. I can confirm the costive a repair is on the $1100 range and my local Chrysler reports they do this repair 4 times per week, nationwide. This repair is out of my budget and I think Chrysler needs to recall and repair these vehicles. The horn has gone off in stationary, motion, on a city street and highway and turning. Even with the engine shut off in the wee hours of the morning. Below you ask when did this happen? at least 20 times. The horn switch indeed includes the air bags. No way to test them but I fear they are not working as this switch is bad. I hope I don't find out the hard way.

This car should have had a recall for the bad suspension and for the horn. First of all I bought this car in early February 2007 from the dealer it was a certified used 2006 Chrysler Sebring touring. From the start the horn would blow at any given time. Secondly I have replaced every suspension part from ball joints, lower &upper control arms, inner &outer tie rods and on and on. I have friends that have the same model car and they have the same problems. That's not including the wheel bearing, water flange, oil pressure sensor.

The horn started blowing on its own while I was driving on a local interstate. It caused the car next to me to swerve thinking I was blowing at them. I also got several angry looks. Thankfully the horn eventually (5 minutes) stopped & I did not encounter bumper to bumper traffic. Since the first incident it has happened several more times sometimes when driving and sometimes when parked. I also had a problem when a car pulled out in front of me and the horn would not blow when pushed but did start blowing a few seconds later and would not stop. This a very dangerous situation when the horn is needed & does not blow & is also a problem when it blows when it is not supposed to. I can imagine how I would feel if while sitting in stopped traffic the car behind me would lay on their horn for several minutes for no apparent reason. I have been told if you remove the air bag relay or unplug the horn wire the horn will stop blowing. This of course would leave you without a horn, which is not a good situation. I have also been told but have not confirmed that by unplugging the horn relay, it makes the drivers airbag inoperative (definitely a safety issue). The problem appears to be in the horn switch located on top of the air bag. I have been told by a Chrysler dealer that the entire air bag needs to be replaced. If the horn does not blow when pushed or blows when it is not pushed it is a real safety concern not to mention if you were in a serious crash & the horn relay was removed causing the air bag not to deploy.

At around 40K miles the horn on my 2006 Sebring started to go off without being pressed. At first it malfunctioned when I unlocked the car with the keyless remote. Then it begin doing it while driving. It doesn't just beep the horn gets stuck so I am pounding on my steering wheel trying to get it to stop. My wife was pulled over on the highway because the police thought she was driving aggressively blaring the horn at everyone. Luckily while she was explaining to the officer the problem the car has the horn went off and he saw for himself that there is a problem with this car. After several months I just had the mechanic unhook the horn, which is a huge safety hazard, because he gave me an estimate near $1000 to repair it. So its been over a year and about 20K miles that I have been driving a vehicle with no horn. My car is due for safety inspection on April 25th and it definitely wont pass without a horn, and $1000 is way too much to pay to get a horn fixed. Had I known about this site a couple years ago I would have posted a complaint then, but I guess better late than never.
