The horn switch or relay.Your ignition switch does not power up the horn switch or relay,the switch and relay have constant power to them at all times as long as the battery is hooked up.I would start with checking the relay and then go to the switch. Also, check the wire under the steering wheel cover. If this wire is gounding out it will case the horn to blow Probably moisture in the horn circuit. The horn is always hot. The circuit is made by completing a ground. This way, several different circuits can energize the horn easily, i.e., the car's alarm, which it may or may not have. Moisture bridging a certain wire/terminal with the chassis will make the horn blow. Brake lights are probably wired the same way. They can come on without pressing the pedal. Completing grounds to turn things on makes them easier to control with the car's computer. Pull fuse until it dries, then park in a more sheltered area.
There is an electrical short to ground in the fan switch or in the blower motor itself.
switch itself or key cylinder?
You must replace the ignition switch if you cannot get the key out.
You cannot fix it, just replace it.
I had a 96 Stratus that would do that, and it turned out to be that the starter was bad.
Ignition switches have a pattern of spades on the back side that must match the replacement switch exactly otherwise you could end up blowing fuses or frying a coil. Hope this helps.
you cannot repair the switch,you must replace and relearn.gmjim
i have a 96 dodge avenger 2.5 and it keeps blowing my ignition switch. any idea why?
The ignition switch itself is rod actuated. It is mounted to the steering column under the dash. Two screws mount it to the column. Just make sure you get the rod in the hole on the switch itself, and that you align the new switch properly before tightening the screws.
You mean, I think, ignition switch module, which is the location of the ignition switch.
More than likely because of a short. its probably a shorted ignition switch
First you must start by removing the entire ignition, itself, on the Nissan 200SX. It should be fairly easy, you will just need the correct tools. Once you have bought the new ignition switch, attach it to the ignition and then re-install the ignition into the Nissan 200SX.
