last of the issues! the horn, it's always on

Postby cowboydan [OP] » July 23rd 2013, 9:40pm

I have had the steering apart. there are no broken wires. there is no grounding issues. the horn works and when I plug the 10amp fuse in, the horn sounds and continues to sound until I pull the fuse. one note: there is a remote starter that isn't oem and it doesn't work either, never did. but it's the last thing on my vans bucket list to tackle.

My older 2000 did that. Turned out to be an issue with the air bag.

i'd be happy to..... if you tell me where that might be.... still looking.... and looking..... scratching things... and looking.... 5yrs now.... i'm getting grey. nope, I need some assistance.... just kidding about... I've been avoiding this issue for 5yrs because it looks like the remote starter system is also an immobilizer. I've seen these things lock up when tampered with. it's a tiger system, it may be connected to the horn for factory alarm. if the horn issue has something to do with the immobilizer malfunctioning, i'd be in big trouble tampering with something I know little about..... any thoughts?
