My Horn sounds sporadically whenever I turn the wheel?!!
I have a 2001 6 cyl 4.0 SOHC Ford Ranger, recently I was having electrical troubles, the car had to be jumped twice in the same day, the second jump failed, and there was a strange clicking noise unless I pulled the number 23 fuse. I changed the battery leads as they were quite corroded and without a jump, the car started fine. I thought I was in the clear (this all happened the day I thought I was going to move for work - classic murphy's law) but then the horn started going off in sporadic short bursts whenever the wheel was turned more than about 5 degrees from center. I've searched the Ranger forums and there was an article about a different problem (but closest match to this one) which mentioned a clock spring, is that the culprit, is this an electrical short? What do you guys think is wrong, I'm not very knowledgable when it comes to diagnosing auto repairs, if I know whats wrong I can replace it, but I'm out of my depth here.
