Default My car's parents are siblings.

Every once in a while I'll be driving and the horn will honk itself... Happen to anyone else?

Mine did it for about 2 years. I would be at a red light and it would honk, people would look around and I just waved at them and grinned. The speedo and other gauges would go haywire also. It has something to do with some wiring under the steering wheel airbag or the BCM wiring in the passenger footwell area. Go over to LS1GTO.com and search for "phantom honk".

It doesn't really bother me enough at this point to actually do anything about it. I just wanted to make sure I still had my mental health (well whats left of it) and see if it could be fixed if the problem gets worse

strangely enough, my 03 grand prix does this sometimes. Maybe it's a haunted pontiac thing?
