How to go about it? Help!

Must be a clockspring issue. Get it checked. If that is the case it would around INR 2100 to get it replaced.

Have you installed aftermarket horns ? My car ran normally up until 3 years after which the same thing happened. I will be getting it repaired in the coming week. It is a clockspring issue if you after market horns. Use a relay after changing the cockspring.

I have been using aftermarket horns too. I think there is already a relay setup for the horns. Have you installed an additional relay setup for the same??

If your steering wheel controls don't work then the clockspring is at fault.

If they work then it can be various other things. As small as a blown fuse/wire cut or a wheel speed sensor for which the whole hub has to be changed. The sensor and it's tone ring are fixed onto the hub and cannot be opened/changed separately!

Don't know what Hyundai engineers were thinking when they designed them!

Hope this helps!

i have faced the same issue few years back and as JAG4 said most of the time aftermarket horn is the real culprit. If you have not installed new horn then i recommend you to visit a garage and get your car scanned and all the wirings checked. Remember your airbag will not work as the clock spring is damaged. So get it checked ASAP.

It's giving me sleepless nights considering the amount of driving that I do. Will definitely get it checked at A$$ as soon as I find some time off work.

Thanks none the less.

Not necessarily. When it happened in my car the controls were working perfectly fine.

+1. All my steering mounted controls were working properly. I think the clock spring's main use is to control the airbag. I may be wrong though. I got my clock spring replaced for 1800rs including labour and taxes. I would advice you to check with atleast two A.S.S to get the price as i got a quote of 3000 rs and 1800 for the same part including labour. Hope this helps.

Good to know.
When my clock spring was replaced a few years back, none of the steering controls worked so I just assumed it's all connected.
