2000 Chev 2500 Silverado horn replacement

One of my 2 horns has apparently shorted out.  Can anyone direct me to how to R&R it?  I keep losing fuses that blow because of this and I have poor horn volume to boot.
Thanks!

Silverado horn


Unplug the horn

If the fuses do not blow & you have
battery voltage at the wire connector
you took off, when pushing the horn
pad, then replace the horn

If the fuse blows with the horn out of the circuit,
then you got to do some testing for a short in the
wiring or horn button area.

Personally I would start by looking at a wiring diagram,
so I wasn't guessing at where I'm about to do my testing.

1988 chev silverado v6 no power going to the fuel pump. i checked for power where it plugs into the fuel pump on top of the tank and i got no power. what actions can i take to get power


check all ur fuses for continuity first, then u can also try to swap out ur fuel pump relay with another relay that looks jus like it, be sure to use a relay like for ur horn or ac relay something that wont affect necessary or direct engine circuits like for ex. an ecm fuse or bcm fuse. if fuses r good an swappin relays wont work, next is to trace bak from fuel pump ur wires an possibly keep back probing to see if u have a broken wire from relay box to pump . good luck hope this was helpful . in ur fusebox ur fuelpump fuse should b labeled or easily found in fuse box legend, most likely on bak of fusebox cover....

My horn on my Buick Skylark will not work. It blows every horn fuse we replace. How can I get it to work?


You may have a short circuit in your horn button causing the
fuse to blow when you press the button or in the horn itself.

1. Locate the horn under the hood normally in the front of
the engine compartment.
2. Once you locate the horn, disconnect the wire from the
horn.
3. connect a VOM (Volt Ohm meter) to the horn's wire.
plus(+) side to the wire and negative (-) side to ground
or some metal part on the car.
4, set the VOM to dc voltage and have someone press the
horn button. You should read 12 volts on the VOM, if
not you have a short in the horn button, if you do mread 12 volts
you have a short in the horn. Replace the horn....

I have 2003 Chevy HD 2500 and the horn doesn't work. The fuses are good and I replaced the horn itself....any thoughts?


did you check the horn relay it is a small box usually in or near the fuses or near the horn itself It may have been just the relay all along and not the horn

I lost my head lights, dome light, horn door


sounds like you have a bad ground somewhere. Check every ground strap that you can find, make sure it's tight, and not corroded, etc. Sounds like the accessories are trying to find a ground, and going through the brake light to do so, thus burning out from too much current.
