In order to do that you have to pop the lil plugs on the side of the steering wheel and remove the two small lil bolts and it just lifts out. But removing the horn IS illegal.(My friend just got a ticket for that crap) you just simply unplug the wires connecting to it. BUT only do this after the batt has been disconnected for 5 minutes(The manual says to, otherwise the backup power it stores may "Panic" and deploy in your face with your hands full of tools making you look like a very DEAD freakshow.) than put the setup back into the steering wheel completely harmless. problem is is now when you start the truck the onboard airbag module runs diag. and sees it has a faulty. and than sets off the lil airbag light on the dash. removing the light than causes the airbag module to been excessively for about 2 minutes everytime theres even so much as power running to it. (It's an ellusive lil bugger too.)
So basicllly what it did to remove it and turn it all off was.
1. Removed and disconnected airbag, than replaced it back into the steering wheel.
2. Disconnected the 3-4 sensors behind the grill/bumber area in the front.
3. Removed light bulb to try and make it final to no avail. It just started Beeping irratatingly after that.
4. Finally I traced the sound and finally went Ape**** on the passenger side side panel on the floor until i found the lil blue box of irratance.
My intitial attempt at this i was planning on taking pictures of it. but i never really PLAN to work on my truck. i just kinda do when im bored, so I never have a Cam around when i need it. all i have to say is. the air bag module, if removed first (Not sure how airbag itself will react to this) will disable the system checks and lights and functionality. Is a complete pain to remove do to wiring making the work area clausterphobic and tight, as well as very inconveniant areas for the 4-6 bolts holding it in.
