Horn wont stop honking

Asked by Jan 13, 2018 at 06:25 PM about the Jeep Patriot

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My horn started honking randomly yesterday. I disconnected the battery so it
wouldn't drive me and my neighbors crazy. Took battery in it was fine, hooked it
back up and the horn would not stop. Unhooked battery again. I know there is
no fuse for the 2009 patriot, but where might the relay be so I can unhook it to
at least get it to a shop with out honking all the way there.

No still working on it. battery is fine. replacing batteries in key fab and going from there. will be unhooking horn as soon as I figure out how.

My car did the same 2 years ago. Bought a new battery it stopped. Started doing it again 2 months ago. Bought a new battery it stopped. As of last night it is doing it again. Car has been in the shop for a week once before to find the fault. It didn't honk once. I am at my wits end.


A mechanic mention that it was tied into the airbags. I had to disconnect mine. I have a 2010 Patriot.

Mine 2010 did this for the longest and I had it unplugged for months. Got tired of not having a horn and plugged it back in and it still stayed honking. Pulled the metal piece that the horn plugs into up a little bit and it stopped. Hope anyone else with this problem tries this beote spending bunches of money

Had this issue a year ago with mine, random spastic honking one night. I found the horn and disconnected, much to my neighbors satisfaction. I researched and thought it might be the horn, so after a couple months I replaced it with a much louder air horn. Fixed it, till about 3 weeks ago. Now it's back. Battery is maybe 1 yr old. Gonna try a switch cuz any complicated /expensive electrical repairs aren't worth the investment imho.
