Hi, I have a new 2014 ATS (5 months old). In February my horn started honking by itself. This only happens in the morning...and not every day. Maybe like 3-4 morning out of the week. Sometimes when I get in the horn will blare like I am laying into it and it wont stop. Then I will be driving down the street or on the freeway and it just keeps honking. It seems dangerous, distracting and embarrassing. I took it in but of course that was the day it did not do it. Anyone else have this happen or have any suggestions on how I can get Cadillac to fix this?

I had a jeep that did this and it was a a faulty spring in the horn button. That was not cool to get up 3am on a Saturday to that thing going off. I unplugged the battery until I could get it fixed. Call the ghost hunters if the dealer can't fix it. And they should be replacing parts for you instead of giving the car back saying they can't find anything wrong. Why would you make that up.

Pull the horn relay that way it won't keep going off at least until you can record it and take it to the dealer. Faulty relay could be a problem as well.

That was one of my biggest beefs with BMW service dept. They wouldn't fix anything unless they could verify the symptom themselves EVEN if there was a previous service bulletin issued that alerted them of a possible issue. Drove me insane because everytime I drove to the dealer for them to "hear" the noise, it went away by the time I got there and leaving it overnight didnt help either. So , even though they knew exactly what the problem was, they wouldn't agree to replace the parts on my word only ! :mad2:

I would but I'm not on speaking terms with that department because of their "let them eat cake" policy regarding a Windows Phone app. Translated: If I can't have an app, I don't care about the other ones. LoL

Okay. I'll tell them anyway.
