    When using horn, get clicking from right side of dashboard., but the horn does not work

  • Revansbane Nov 15, 2008

    I have somewhat of the same problem. My horn doesnt work at all now. Used to work when the car was turned off, but now nothing. However I dont have the clicking noise like you guys are talking about. But I did notice my cruise control went out about the same time. Still so far havnt been able to fix either one.

    There must be some relation between these problems because mine does the same thing. The horn clicks (sounds like a blinker, from the right dash). My cruise control also stopped working around the same time. Both worked on and off for a few months and now neither work at all.

Replace the horn relay under the glovebox. the bottom panel comes off and you will need to get your head and a lightunder their and have a friend hit the horn so you can find out which one is clicking. once you find it tag your wires and replace it. hope that helped.

The clicking most likely is coming from the horn relay. This is ususally mounted under the hood but may be different on your vehicle. Best thing to do is have someone lay on the floor on the passenger side and see if he/she can hear exactly where the click is coming from. If the relay is touched you will be able to feel it when it clicks. Good luck

My 2001 chevy cavalier horn stopped working it would work when the car was off now it stopped completely what do u think it is ?


If you hear a click from the area of the glove box when you press the horn pad on the steering column, then the horn buttons and relay are working and the problem is most likely the horn itself. Unfortunately, the horn buttons in the steering pad are usually the issue. Replacement is tricky since you are working near the airbag. It is easier to find the horn wire at the base of the steering column and redirect it to a horn button you can buy at any auto parts store and fasten to dash next to the driver.

97 cavalier horn stopped working. Fuse is OK. I hear no clicking noise when I press the horn. Other that a bad horn or a loose wire to the horn, what else might be the problem?


There are tow things other than the gorm that could be bad. The forst (And most likely) is the horn switch located in the steering wheel. These are fragile and easy to break, and not to easy to replace. If you find that the switch is the problem, you would be better served to mount an external horn switch on the dash near the driver. This is legal for inspection in most states (check with your local inspection authority first). The otherr item that could be bad is the horn relay. It is located under dash on the passengers side kickpanel near the glove box. it is mounted in a relay panel there. You should hear it click when preesing the horn switch if the car is quiet enough.

1999 Chevy Cavalier Horn Relay Location


The relay is located under the glove compartment. Little difficult to get to but if you peek your head just underneath, you'll see it. Easy to take out and replace. Ive replaced mine and still have a problem. I hear a clicking noise and even can feel the contact when horn is pressed. I changed the horn about 1yr ago and now am wondering if the horn could have gone out so soon.

Horn Doesn't Work on 1996 Chevy Cavalier


If the horn was very faint then it probably went bad. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I take it your fuse panel doesn't have a diagram on it or you don't have the owner's manual?

Horn not grounded?


the clicking noise is the horn relay, this means in most cases the horn is defective and should be replaced.
