Hey guys, I have a 2000 MY Carrera with 45k (Tip). On my way home today, when I hit a bump (while holding steering wheel) my horn beeped. I can hear something making noise (like a short) somewhere in the steering column (possibly by the airbag). Not sure what to do? I currently unplugged the fuse to the horn. Any ideas on where to check where the loose wire may be?

Hello there.

It's not a lose wire, but the rubber bushings are worn out. You can either fill the bushings with a form of silicone sealant or replace the frame that has the worn bushings.

There are lots of DIY threads here on the subject.

Here's one for the 986 that applies to our car as well.

:)

Thanks guys....to assure no airbag light, Do I have the steps correct:

Step 1) Disconnect the negative battery cable before you start. (Very Important!)

Step 2) Then I can turn the ignition on, rotate the wheel, use the torx and disconnect the air bag?

Step3) After everything is back together (siliconed the bushings), Next, Turn the ignition key to off and pull out key?

Step 4) Then it is safe to hook up the battery?

p.s. can I use regular silicone (as another user did) or does it have to be hi-temp?

Thanks a lot!!!

My experience with this.

I tried the washers and the horn action was too soft.

Finally I replaced the cage, and it is perfect again.

I agree with Logray. I had the same problem on my 2000 C2. I fixed it with four nylon washers but it works for about few months. I then bought a new horn cage from Sun Set and the problem is fixed the right way.

Don't waste your time with washers or silicone. If you love your Porsche then fix it right laugh.gif
