    AC troubles!!

    I would go with what Brandon-w has suggested and take a good look at the blower speed control resistor for burnt connections or a burnt spot on the resistor itself. The other thing to check is your actual rotary switch to see it you have voltage at each of the fan speed settings as you could...

    I'm right with you there on the horn honking issue. You hit the horn button and the signal now goes through the BCM module and this BCM module has to be positively sure the horns are actually physically connected to the wires before the BCM will allow the horns to honk.

    Steering issue….. please help!
