CAR: 2005 CHEVROLET IMPALA, V6 3100 ENGINE THE HORN IN THE CAR BEGAN HAVING INTERMITTENT PROBLEMS WITH FUNCTIONALITY. IT IS UNKNOWN HOW THIS BEGAN EXCEPT THAT THE SOUND OF THE HORN BECAME SOMEWHAT STRANGE TO START. OVER TIME THE HORN FAILED COMPLETELY. THE RESULT OF THIS FAILURE IS A RATHER BIG SAFETY ISSUE GIVEN THE NEED OF THE HORN TO WARN OTHER DRIVES AND PEDESTRIANS OF YOUR PRESENCE WHEN THEY ARE UNAWARE. WE NEARLY GOT INTO THREE ACCIDENTS (TWO IN PARKING LOTS, ONE ON ROAD) AS A RESULT OF OUR INABILITY TO HONK AT DRIVERS TO LET THEM KNOW WE WERE THERE. I AM A HANDYMAN/MECHANIC TYPE AND REPLACED THE DEFECTIVE HORN AND ADDED A CUSTOM WATER SHIELD TO PREVENT WATER FROM CORRODING THE HORN. THERE IS A TSB ABOUT THIS ISSUE. I BELIEVE A RECALL IS NECESSARY. SERVICE BULLETIN NUMBER : 4043 NHTSA ITEM NUMBER : 10020089
