Hello
My daughter dropped coins into the steering wheel cover, making the horn go off randomly.
How do i temporarily disconnect the horn until i get a chance to have it fixed?
Or which fuse is for the horn?
Peugeot 407 se 2005.

Thanks.

It's 2a.m. here and the car's outside. I'll look in the morning. (I've a horrible feeling that the fuse for the horn also operates a few other things.)

On a slightly related topic, is it possible to remove the cover from the horn switch on the steering wheel? My horn only works if you press the top left hand side of the button, I think it's down to a loose commection in the switch??

Thanks

You know that the horn cover is the airbag and you could end up deaf, injured, dead and/or with a huge bill? Yes? OK, This picture is from a 406, but I think it is basically the same. Number 3 is the airbag retaining bolt.

You can deactivate the airbags via the red switch on the very end of the dash that is visible only when the driver's door is opened.

Seriously, I'd be very wary of doing this; there's probably more to it that meets the eye.:eek:

The keyswitch only disables the passenger airbag.

To be safe, disconnect the battery and wait 10 minutes to allow any residual charge in the cars electrics to wither away.

It's easy enouygh if you're cautious. I'd be inclined not to leave them in there in case of some adverse effect on the airbag itself. You can do it, easy chum.
