Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Why does my 2007 Kia Sedona keep beeping its horn?

My wife this morning had car troubles when she stopped at Starbucks for coffee. Her cousin ended up jumping the vehicle and suggested the battery was a bit low on juice. So this evening I pulled out the old battery, and put in a lower power replacement (650 cranking amps vs. 850 that I pulled out of the van) battery as a temporary fix. Now the van constantly honks in about 2-3 second intervals. When the van is started, and when the van is locked, the honking eventually stops. I have no idea what is causing this.

SOURCE: Keyless remote locks the doors but the horn doesn't honk.

First and foremost: THANK YOU! Leave it this way! That horn honk is annoying. There is an option on cars with factory alarms to disable the (annoying) horn feature by removing and re-inserting an electronic key usually found somewhere below the steering wheel. There is no problem with your alarm.

Hope this helped,

SOURCE: 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer horn not honking

check all the wiring in the stearing wheel. Cover should screw off from the back side. Make sure the horn is hooked up. Should be in the front bumper. If it still dont work then buy a new one. Should run about fiftenn bucks.

SOURCE: The horn honks when I reconnect the battery

If the horn only honked once it may be a symptom of your car alarm being set off after power has been re-applied. If the horn stays on after you reconnect the battery you have either a stuck horn button on your steering wheel or a stuck horn relay. Or it could be the alarm sounding the horn but that usually that occurs in a series of horn blasts (rather than continuous) and the car indicators usually flash in sync with the alarm sounding.
If the horn is stuck on in a continuous blast ie not sounding on and then off and then on etc etc, disconnect one the battery cables then pull the fuse that feeds the horn or pull off one of the removable spade electrical connectors from one of the 2 terminals on the horn itself. Usually the fuse box is either under the dashboard on the drivers side or could be under the hood. Consult your user manual for your car for fuse and horn locations.
If the horn is stuck you need to visit a qualified auto electrician, or perhaps you have a friend who knows his way around auto electrics?

Horn on my kia sedona will not stop

you have a short in the system most likecly it is in the horn pad, some of this horn pads can be repair, so here it goes, remove your steering horn pad, disconnect the wires that go to the pad only, see if the horn still goes of, if it does, fix or replace pad, to fix it, you need to have distance between the pad and the ground

My horn was replaced on my 2006 kia sedona and sometimes it wont honk and sometimes it will

I pulled the center out of the steering wheel and grounded the horn contact. The horn honked like it should. This is on our 2006 KIA Sedona. The horn used to work once in awhile, but not at all now. This leads me to believe that the clockspring in the steering column is defective. I will call the dealer on Monday to see if there is a warranty fix, but I doubt that there is.

Possible electrical problem for my Kia Sedona

I had a similar problem with my '06 Sedona. Stopped at the gas station and filled up, then when I turned the key to start it after filling up, the vehicle wouldn't start. I had it towed to Kia and they replaced a computer part. Not sure exactly what part it was, sorry. Haven't had any other problems since then, and that was 2.5 years ago. Your best bet is to have it towed to the dealership. My problem was covered under warranty.

I bought a 2004 Kia sedona and they added a keyless remote, however when you lock the car with the remote the horn doesn't beep nor do the lights blink. Is there a programming solution

Depends how they installed the remote, there is normally an option to connect a wire to the horn and one to the parking lights, however it may be possible that they didn't attach those 2 or simply that remote module didn't have it, however most do.
This may be too simple, but mine only honks and flashes after pushing lock twice, it locks on the first push.
