Chrysler Sebring owners have reported 124 problems related to horn assembly (under the electrical system category).
I am joining the many other owners who's horns go off, with out warning car off or car on. At the same time the horn now seems to have stopped working entirely leaving me no way to warn other drivers that do not see me. I can confirm the costive a repair is on the $1100 range and my local Chrysler reports they do this repair 4 times per week, nationwide. This repair is out of my budget and I think Chrysler needs to recall and repair these vehicles. The horn has gone off in stationary, motion, on a city street and highway and turning. Even with the engine shut off in the wee hours of the morning. Below you ask when did this happen? at least 20 times. The horn switch indeed includes the air bags. No way to test them but I fear they are not working as this switch is bad. I hope I don't find out the hard way.

About 4:30 pm (rush hour) on 20 October 2015 I was driving south on I-95 south of washington DC when the horn sounded continuously and unexpectedly, surprising me and drivers near me. I was going straight at about 60 mph. It stopped after I firmly depressed the horn pad twice. After I arrived at home the horn sounded again for about 1 minute. The car was parked with the wheel slightly to the left. I disconnected the horn and began researching on line. . Read more...

The 2009 Chrysler Sebring horn starts to blow at all hours and I have to go out and hit the horn pad on the steering wheel. I had it go off in traffic and almost had a guy in a road rage situation until I told him what happens to the horn. This should be a recall for safety for sure. I see where there are many more complaints on the internet.

Car pulled out in front and hit the horn, which did not work, and now comes on only intermittently, or even on its own. This seems to be a common problem with the Sebrings and from blogs seems to be due to a faulty switch inside the airbag cover on the steering wheel. This is a terrible safety hazard and should have been recalled.
I first noticed the light in the analog click go out, then the light in the shifter and overhead lamp. Most importantly is my power locks stopped working. I purchased a 5 batteries for my remote key and when that didn't work I purchased a new set of keys. The horn and lights would sound but the locks would not lock. I have to manually lock my doors and I'm unable to access my trunk unless I crawl in from the back seat and hit the release. I've had several people look over my car and I no one can figure this out. I finally started researching and I see several recalls but because my car was not built in a certain time and location I'm not qualified for the recalls unless I pay out of my own pocket. I can't even trade it in and get a good enough price due to these malfunctions. I will by no means trust Chrysler or Dodge vehicles.
I recently got pulled over because my horn keeps going of uncontrollably! I had to take the fuse out and I've been pulled over twice because the horn goes off and distracts drivers unintentionally. They get mad and call the cops. . Then once this fuse is pulled the gas meter goes crazy and dumb. It said once we had half tank and we ran out as soon as we pulled out the driveway! this is a safety hazard!! this need to be recalled!!.
Horn goes off by itself and continues to sound, until pounding on the steering wheel center. Dealer says it is a bad horn switch which is integral with the airbag assembly, which is not a covered part with extended warrantee and costs >$750. This would be very unsafe in a high traffic situations, or bad neighborhoods.
Horn started to sound when I was in a parking lot at low to no speed. It would not stop. I had to pull the fuse to disconnect. Dealer said entire horn with airbag assembly needed to be replaced. I was not under warranty, but I noticed the repair ticket had a cost in the range of $700 to $1,000 to complete the job. I bet a lot of people just leave horn and airbag disconnected rather than pay that much money. I have seen many people complain about the same.

Horn goes off by itself, even sitting in the driveway turned off.
Just purchased the car a year ago. Horn did not work since the purchase date. Finally decided to see if I could fix the problem. When trying to repair it,discovered fuse was removed because horn blows continuously.
1st time jut got out of driveway in a. M. And car horn went off and stayed on through most of street and then turned corner and went off again for several seconds as I approached 1st stoplight. 2nd time as I very briefly beeped horn at friend twice, near my local donuts place & mcd's, but it continued ! I was too embarrassed to stop. 3rd time no one around it parked in driveway when I was shoveling snow. Next & worst time as I was pulling in to stop at plaza and it continued as I shut off car and even restarted it and locked door & unlocked it by key and nothing! went inside car and pressed coast button and finally it stopped. Cops in car ,were nearby when I came out later, said nothing, assumed it went off again with no one around ! 3 other times supposedly no one else around in driveway sometime within my earlier descriptions. Recall this thing!.
The horn keeps randomly going off both while im driving and when its completely shit off in the middle of the night. Multiple times its gone off while ive been driving its almost caused wrecks. Something needs to be done before an accident does happen.

Driving down the road when my horn suddenly started going off. Did not turn off until I beat on the steering wheel. Continues to do this every day now, scaring drivers around me and there is nothing I can do about it.

The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 140,000.
I have a 2006 Chrysler Sebring sedan. Over the past week the horn malfunctions where it will blare for 30-40 seconds while it is parked and untouched. This also happened while driving and I had to punch the steering wheel a couple times for it to stop. I had to pull out the fuse today. Why Chrysler doesn't recall this is beyond me. It is dangerous and can cause an accident.
