My 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee, purchased new in August, 2008, in Virginia, has a horn that only works when mashed really hard on one of the horn icons on the steering wheel. It is not possible to make a modest “beep” alert that way or activate the horn on other parts of the wheel. The horn contacts have been replaced twice. The selling dealership promised to contact Chrysler for more help. (Silence). This week the service manager at a Maryland Jeep dealership said, after I paid $250, that the horn is designed to work this way. “There’s nothing wrong with it.”
I owned a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee without this problem. In fact, I’ve owned or rented dozens of cars without ever encountering a horn with such limited utility. Are there any Jeep owners out there with a similar fussy horn?
