    Here it goes: Everytime it gets real cold outside the damn horn on my truck goes off until I disconnect the battery. It happened at 2 am. and the neighbors are rustleing.:o

    Any ideas?

    Later model??..

    My brother in laws '95 GMC does the same thing--its the horn button/steering wheel,it shrinks in cold weather,and applies enough pressure to set the hon off!...dealer said they could fix it for 150 bucks...:eek1: ..

    I showed him how to pull the horn relay out,but its a PITA to get at..havent found a better "easy" solution--for now the horn relay is in the glove box!..someday I'll find another steering wheel and horn button (his is warped from summer sun's heat-,probably why the horn sets itself off..)

    Blowing a horn at someone here is futile anyway--most folks ignore horns,unless they are on a semi or a train,and just flip you off anyway!..leads to road rage and a possible beating or murder!..better off just not having one here most of the time!..:crazy:
