Hope there's people still here. The other night at 2AM my horn started blowing when I was sleeping. But I didn't think it was my car until security called 20 minutes later. It was a record low temp outside of 45 degrees. I went outside, pushed the horn pad on the steering wheel, & the noise stopped. 5AM & it started again. This time pressing the horn pad did nothing. Eventually the horns quit working, & were extremely hot. I smelled smoke, & was worried about a fire. I pulled the horn relay, which solved the problem. In the 5 1/2 years with the car, maybe I've honked the horn 3 times, so I'm not worried. Anyone else have this problem, & what fixed it? GARY
So I stopped by the Chevy dealer where I used to work, & my friends still do. They laughed, & said this has happened to their own Chevy's. When the temps here vary from 65, to 95, a 45 degree day shrinks the airbag module in the steering wheel, allowing the horn contact to connect. It's warmed back up to 70 & is fine now, but the horns blew so long, & got so hot, they are now dead. Time for a trip to the U-Pick. GARY
