Horn Problem

ihave a 1999 - 996. when making right turns the horn blows, just started doing this. the other day while parked, not running, not locked you could touch the car and the horn blew.
i removed the streeing wheel, checked out the horn wires, everyting looked good.
i had to remove the horn fuse in order to drive with the horn going off.
Any suggestions?
thanks

Replace your airbag retainer to steering wheel.

03 C4S, horn stops working when I hit a speed bump. Hit the speed bump again and it works normally. Air bag retainer issue as well?

Airbag

Get a new airbag retainer from Porsche and have a qualified technician install it

I fixed mine with some rubber grommets, was fairly simple once I managed to get the airbag off!!

Purchase # 30 rubber o rings at Home Depot that will do the trick. I repaired my vehicle using them.
