#3 of 237 Horn Malfunction--HELP PLEASE!
Jul 14, 2007 (6:15 pm)
The horn on my 1996 Saturn SC1 sedan started going off one day incessantly. After touching the horn button it stopped. I visited several mechanics, who said that I need a new horn.
I bought a new horn (the one with the two mounting sites). However, my Saturn horn has a three-wire relay cap. I cut that off (per seller at AutoZone) and have tried "wrapping" each wire on one mount while the other is attached to a cable that is attached to the grounded horn. Nothing works.
QUESTION: WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO!?!?!? How can I get this work!?!? PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!!

Pull the SIR fuse and disconnect the SIR power plugs for the bags under the dash.

Since your old horn works incessantly, I'm betting it's not the problem. My money is on the horn switch inside the steering wheel or the horn relay.

A/C works fine, good pressures
Blower motor good (bench tested)
Blower resistors good (bench tested)
Blower relay good (bench tested)
Blower switch good (bench tested)
Alternator output checked
All fuses good
Turn on A/C and blower runs fine for about 5 minutes then it slows down and sometimes stops. Same results on any blower speed. Blower light dims as blower speed decreases.

Take the negative cable off,take the air bag fuse out. Check your key first, worn key's will cause problems. Compair your key with another.

Connect a DVOM to Ground and check the following terminals of the blower switch for voltage with the switch in each position.
Is there voltage at all terminals ?

Back in 1996 Saturn had a problem with the relay in the horn. They had a Bulletin in 1996 for the repair. And on some occasion's the horn buttons get stuck (in the air bag) and causing the horn to stay on

I can help but I need your CODES
Do you have a E11 IN ENGINE CONTROLS ?
That will tell you, you have a transmission code set.
For starts right down your codes (engine & trans) and clear them. Drive the vehical till your code comes back and check to see what reset.
#11 of 237 1998 Saturn SL1 EGR Valve Problem
Sep 12, 2007 (1:25 pm)
My 98 SL1 With 195,000 miles is having EGR probs. I keep getting codes (P0405 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Sensor A Circuit Low) and (P1404 Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve Pintel Stuck Open) I have taken my valve off numerous times and cleaned the carbon build up from it and made sure the pintel works freely. I even changed the coolant temp sensor. Can anyone please tell me if i need to repalce the valve or is there something else i can do to correct this ongoing problem?...

Are you having a Drivability problem ? If so what speed ? You incountering a Starting problem ? You have a scan tool to view data stream in reference to EGR operation.
What you can try to do is remove the EGR valve from the vehical look into the ports that EGR controls and make sure that you dont have a blockage it one port. One thing to try is with the valve removed start the vehical. Caution you need to keep you hand on the Key to shut the car off cause it will rev to the rev limiter. CHECK YOUR OIL LEVEL FIRST !
With the valve removed start the vehical you will here exhaust leaking and if so shut down the vehical. You know the port is open but how much ?
Make further inspection check the electrical connector and then what I recommend you to do after that is get a new valve from Saturn
