JK Horn issues
Ok, so I'm new to the forum and have an issue I haven't see answer to in the search.
I have a 2012 JK Unlimited Rubi.
The horn messed up on me a while back and I pulled the fuse in the engine compartment.
Decided I needed to see about fixing it the other day.
Tried a new horn and have pulled the battery (new battery actually) to reset computer if needed.
Fuse is not blown, I add the 10 amp fuse, open the driver door (its unlocked no alarm set) and the horn blares non stop.
I pull the wire to the horn, and as I touch it honks. ie non stop power going to it.
After a few min (time always varies) horn stops. even when i try to honk horn from wheel no sound at all.
I check the fuse, still good. Pull fuse, put in place, open any door and it honks away non stop.
not sure what is causing it or where to look next.
If wheel needs pulled apart then need a how to, but if the wheel is the issue why does it eventually stop and not react when pressed?
If not wheel, what is my next step?
I have 50K miles so past warrenty and don't want to have to go to dealership if possible.
Thanks for any and all help!
