SOURCE: 1995 Buick LeSabre - horn blows

My horn would honk without any assistance from me. The reason was because the plastic cover for the air bag and horn switches had shrunk so tight that it pressed on the horn switches. If your problem is intermittent then cold temperature would also cause the cover to shrink. This is how I solved the problem on my 1995 Buick LeSabre:
Disconnect the negative battery cable.

  1. Under the hood I found a long black plastic cover with the words, “Maxi-Fuse/Relay Center”
2. 2. There are two plastic twist locks (turn ¼ left) and one small wing nut holding the cover on. When the cover is off I see two black fuse covers side by side and below them are several relays. Some are gray and some are black.
3. My horn relay was the second from the left as I faced the rear of my car. It was gray. Some may be black.
4. A small green retainer tab had to be pushed out before I could pull the relay out. On the back of the relay were two orange wires that supply 12V. One green wire that goes to the horns and one black wire for ground that goes to the horn switch under the air bag.
5. I cut the black wire and wired in a spst push button switch that I connected to ground.
6. I mounted the push button switch near the driver’s door on a flat part of the dash. I used very strong double sided tape to secure the button switch to the dash.

My horns now are activated when I push my new horn switch button. My problem solved.

Someone recommended removing the air bag/horn switch unit from the steering wheel and relieving the tightness of the plastic cover. There are probably more than one way to this.

SOURCE: 2000 buick lesabre horn repacement

So you have replaced the single horn and it still dosen't work ? both horns or just the one? The reason why the horns are grounded separately is the reason that both horns can operate without the other. double check that ground.

How can I remove the horn relay from a 1995 buick lesabre


I believe it is the fourth relay from the left passenger side in the engine compartment against the firewall. I am assuming your horn intermittently goes off by itself. It's a interior heat related issue. The horn pad cover on the steering wheel has a membrane layer. It's basically a switch that has one wire that goes to the horn relay to activate the horn. The Buick GM logo embossed on this plastic cover is where I found it most sensitive to any light touch. Unhook the battery. If you carefully cut the right edge of the the steering wheel horn pad and carefully pry it out a little, it will fix this issue and still be able to use the horn. It's another GM defect. I hope this helps! Let me know.

Where is the horn(s) located on a 1999 buick lesabre custom?


It doesn't matter where you "hit" the steering wheel, both horns are wired to sound at the same time. You could have a defective horn relay, but more likely you have defective horn(s). Oh, and you'll find the horns under the hood somewhere adjacent to the engine

1995 buick lesabre horn goes off randomly and have to hit the steering wheel for it to stop


the contact in the steering wheel is shorting out, all you can do is replace it,, however,, any time your messing with the steering wheel or anything associated with it, you must use extreme care,, prior to doing anything, disconnect the Neg battery terminal,, then the positive one, and wait 10 minutes, this will allow the air bag system time to discharge, the last thing you need is the air bag going off, once this has been done, behind the wheel, there will be recessed screws that hold on the face of the steering wheel cover,, remove those, and pull off the cover gently,, your going to have a single wire, ( there are others, But your concerned with the single one, that's for the horn) make sure that is secure . if it seems that wire hasn't worked loose then your problem is going to be in the contacts on the horn buttons, some of these are actually molded into the cover and can't be replaced,, which would mean you have to replace the cover itself,,

Horn honks by itself


This is a common problem with GM vehicles in that year range. The horn switch (buttons) in the steering wheel pad get stuck closed. The switches are embedded in the air bag assembly and would be difficult to replace. A temporary fix to stop the horn is to remove fuse #3 in the relay center which is located in the bottom of the dash on the passenger side, the plastic cover has to be removed for access. DO NOT only disconnect the wires from the horns as the relay switch that controls the circuit will remain powered constantly and will kill your battery. To restore horn function there are aftermarket horn button kits available at most auto parts stores.

If this info is helpful please give me a favorable rating.

Horn honked randomly but is now constant. I have disconnected both wire connections at the 2 horns. Since as soon as one is connected, the horn sounds. How do I properly identity the voltage horn wire...


If you take the steering wheel off you'll see the ground wire that grounds the constantly connected horn. Note the color of the insulation.

You could also reroute the wire from under the hood starting at the horns and simply connecting a switch that grounds the horn out to operate it with an outside switch, that is outside of the steering wheel.
