you have two fuse and relay boxes in your car : one is located on side of dashboard ( on driver side pannel ) and one next to engine compartment ( under front hood ) , you will have either a relay or a fuse says : horn , they usually 5 or 10 amps ( depending how big and loud is your horn ) , good luck
Have someone listen under the hood for the sound of a clicking relay as someone actuates the horn ring. Remember if the horn does blow you might scare the listener!!!
If no click check for the under hood relay. If relay not activating check the horn ring. Some times adjacent relays have same pin out/part number. Swap relay and try. Many of the cars use a "clock spring" design on the wheel. Problem air bag circuit makes it difficult to service. Check to make sure all other services are working attached to the wheel (Speed control, radio,etc). If clock spring is failing eventually other circuits would be affected.
If you have key-less entry and have a horn beep confirmation try the FOB. No beep than maybe horn clock spring OK! In no horn beep confirmation try the panic on the FOB. That should make a little noise, and if nothing else you can check your lights.
Ck the fuse if OK
Hot wire horn if still no horn
different cars different places. look on back of fuse cover it is either on inside fuse box, or under hood fuse box. if the fuse is ok! check the relay for the horn in under hood fuse box. if that is good.disconnect wire from horn, run a wire from battery positive to the horn it self, if it works now, it is the horn relay or button in car. Good-Day!
Hi There are 2 fuse boxs one under the hood near the battery. The other under the dash left driverside pannel. The relays are under the pannel... Good luck.
If you need more help look in Manual under fuse/relays.
Check fuse. Usually located under the Steering wheel or under the hood. You will have to use the other side of the cover to determine which fuse controls the horn and see if the metal link is broken. If both are not blown its probably a short in the wire. If it randomly just happened then its a good first guess without knowing any further details.
Usually I check all my fuses any time I am looking for a specific one. Sometimes a random fuse can be the cause, and not the actual Horn fuse that is blown.
Check in your owner's manual for the location of the horn relay. It will usually look like a small metal or plastic box that plugs into either the main fuse box or the high amp fuse box under the hood. If your horn fuse is good then most likely the horn relay needs replaced.
The click you hear is the horn relay -- this likely has either dirty / corroded connections or burned contacts inside the relay. If cleaning all relevant connections doesn't solve the problem, replace the relay. You can find the realy by having someone push the horn button while you track down the click.
check your horn relay under the hood in fuse/relay box to check it have someone to press down on horn switch with the key on/at the same time you put your finger on top of relay and if you do not feel a clicking noise then relay is bad. if relay is good then the horn is bad. hope this will help you!!!
