It is either the rotating contact under the steering wheel that connects the horn button to the horn relay, or the horn relay and or the horn itself.

Someone would need to test the relay and the circuits it controls.

Horn would not work 3 months ago on Dodge Neon rt 2001; problem was intermittent so shop replaced horn 2 different times and it still had the problem. Took it to dealer and by then locks weren't working....

Lets try step by step heck $600 you re-run a new horn. Open your hood, and take the fuse/relay box cover off. Press your horn listen for the relay to click in the box if the relay does not click then it is not triggering. take a paperclip and pull the horn relay and jumper 30 and 87 as seen on the bottom of the relay in its corresponding spots in the panel. Your horn should sound. The last time i ran across this problem was the steering coulmn did not have an adequate ground, checking that could be a simple check of jumper cable to the metal of the column and the battery ground.

Horn on 2005 Pontiac Grand Am stopped working

I too am having horn problems with my 2005 grand am . Although mine died slowly I rode the horn infront of a friends house and I could hear it changing pitch dieing out so to say. Soon after 2-3 weeks I would check to see if it still messed up then nothing. Ive gone through every fuse and tested all the power up to the actual horn under the hood because Its hard to hold a test light under the hood and press the horn but I put my top dollar on its a defective horn. They kept alot of defects on the hush hush , Turn signal relays going crazy , timing chain noise , Defective tire bolts poor thread, poor transmissions , power seats , Nothing that causes wrecks so no mandates yet. The + to the whole story is GM did make this car stupid easy to work on and parts are at a fair price. They are dime a dozen in a junk yard you can swap alot of parts from the cavilier , alearo , sunfire , HHR , Ps dirty oil kills this motor faster than anything the new tech in this stuff count alot on never gumming up and keeping a clean everything.Its not like the older cars 1970 where things clear them selfs and building a strong motor was the only factor.Good luck with the horn It also has a relay in the fuse box under the hood bottom left if your standing infront of the car. I belive you can grab the one right next to it the one for the fog lights and swap them to test it out they are the same.By the way all in all I like this car.

2002 Saturn L100 No Cruise control, audio after panic horn

The body control module (BCM) controls the operation of the horn for the security system and remote keyless entry (RKE) functions. Circuit 28 is grounded by the BCM when the horn operation is desired. Normal operation of the horn is performed by the horn switch grounding the horn relay and is not controlled by the BCM.
You don't need to take this to a dealer ,besides there are no more saturn dealers . Try a independent repair shop .
Does the cruise control light light up when you turn the cruise on ? Have you checked the fuse's ?

2006 Hyundai Elantra horn does not work

Hi the only things i can think of here would be the following

Faulty horn switch

Faulty horn (the bit that goes beep ;-)

The relay for the horn

or somewhere in the wiring it is shorting out and making the horn fail

I wouldnt let the dealer give me the car back until they have checked all of these all very simple jobs

Hope this helps
