Question about 1997 Geo Metro

1 Answer

Horn doesn't work

Have no fuse diagram, so without taking them all out I can't determine their status. It makes no clicking sound when the buttons are pushed and the engine is running, so I am not sure any power is getting to the assembly.

Yes you need to take out each fuse, it should only take a few minutes. They do make fuse testers but a flashlight, needle nose pliers, and your eyeballs work just as well.

A good way to tell if your horn has shot craps is grab a voltmeter and have a friend hit the horn button, while he is doing that go to the horn with the voltmeter and see if it's receiving power. If so, replace the horn. If not replace switch in the steering wheel.

Horn stops working after a while mostly due to exposure from the elements.

In most states you will fail safety inspection with your horn not functioning.

Make my horn honk


I looked at info for a Silverado 1500. Use a test light to check for voltage at horn fuse in under hood fuse box. According to this diagram, the horn relay has to be energized. Have a helper hit the horn switch when you check voltage at horn fuse. If hot, have to check wiring circuit to horn. In the diagram, dark green wire is voltage and black wire is ground. You could actually use jumper wires from battery for voltage and ground to horn, for testing.

1988 ford broncho horn doesn't work ,relay clicks when horn button is pushed,I replaced the horn it still doesn't work. what should I check next.


OK, try to use a test light and connect the horn lead to ground to see if there is current, and to see if it sounds. If it does, then the wiring is fine to the horn itself. The relay may click, but are the contacts ok? Maybe swap out the relay for a new one.

Horn does not work, horn buttons are good, horn contact in steering cololm is good, battery level is good, can't find a fuse in fuse box for horn.


if you take a test light and test all the fuses in the fuse box and if they are good then when pushing on the horn button you can usually hear the horn relay working(click).if it does then you need to check the horn itself.take a wire and run it from the battery positive cable and connect it to were the horn wire connects to the horn,it should blow(make sure of a good connection),if it does then it could be a dirty connection at the horn.if it doesn`t blow then the horn needs replacing.you can also use the test light and test for power at the horn wire at the horn itself to see if the horn is being feed power from the horn button to the horn.

My horn no longer makes sound i checked the fuse it is fine


Your horn is hooked to a relay. The relay is activated by the ground wire that comes from the horn button. If the fuse is ok then you need to check the relay and the horn switch. You may have a dead relay or a bad contact from the switch.
Hope this helps... Dale

2001 f-150 ford pick up truck . horn will not work


Did you check the fuse for the horn ? Engine compartment fuse panel, fuse #7, 20A

You can pull the horn relay, and jumper the normally open contacts to see if the fuse, horn and grounds for the horn are in working order ( this operates the horn without needing to use the horn button ).
The Horn relay is a half size Ford ISO relay in the engine compartment fuse panel ( check your owners manual to locate relay 206 ).

Diagram to jumper the horn relay, with this in place, the horn should sound as long as the jumper is in place

If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

Horn does not work, replaced 20amp fuse that looked broken, still not working, would it be more than the fuse. I only thought it would be the fuse because when you test the horn there is clicking sound...


If you can hear the relay clicking then the fuse is not blown and the horn button is working. The horn itself is bad or has a bad ground. My guess is you need a new horn. klaxon horns rust on the inside and at some point quit working. Buy a universal replacement as original GM horns are very expensive.

I'm having the same problem with my 2004 Aveo... One day the horm was working the next.... nada... I do also hear a clicking sound from the fuse panel... I'm thinking if it's not the fuse it's self then it could be the horn relay on the fuse panel...The clicking might be the sensors making contack but somthing in side the actaul fuse is messed up... Not sure what would cause this to take place..I have checked the horna with voltage and they work..
So now to replace the horn fuse... and if that doesn't work... it's a mouse hunt... maybe a wire loose or something in the steering wheel... Start with the simple things first...

Horn broken. Not the fuse.


It depends on if the relay makes a clicking sound. This will help you figure out your problem. Everything between the horn button and relay is good if it makes a solid click sound when you press the horn button. So then the problem is in the power side of the circuit. Usually the relay contacts or horn.
And then if there is no click that means the problem is on the control side. Which is the steering-column wiring or horn buttons!
