I have a 2004 Lincoln LS and just recently it began honking its horn for no reason. When you shut the car off, the seat automatically slides back for ease of entry and exit. Also the steering wheel tilts up for the same reason, and at some point during this process the steering wheel gets caught and begins jerking up and down, and the horn begins to honk. It's really annoying. I found that if I hold up on the steering wheel it will stop honking. Also if the problem persists while driving I can tilt the wheel up and sometimes it stops the honking.
Please does anyone know what my ploblem is? Do I need a new tilt switch or is it something else?
