SOURCE: Air Bag Sensor light on & horn not working

Without knowing exactly what the air bag code is, coupled with the known fact that the horn is inoperative, my opinion for a viable solution is to replace the spiral cable or, as commonly called, the "clockspring". This device is the main wiring connection between the steering wheel and the wiring harness. If the circuit(s) open,due to a failure of the spiral cable, the air bag light will be on, the horn will not work,and , if you have a steering wheel Cruise control, it too may be inoperative. Best solution: replace the clockspring. Best advice: Get the airbag DTC's checked, and if you have an open in the driver side air bag circuit, the clockspring is def the culprit. Given that you had chassis work, your DTC just may be the front crash sensor, and the horn may just be unplugged, or bad, This is the best I can do for you, given the info that you have provided,
Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: 1999 toyota corolla Horn doesn't work.

Usually the wire from the steering wheel is Green w/Red and the wire to the horn from the fuse box is White. There is only one fuse, sometimes shared with the emergency lights. Check to see if there is power to the horn itself with a volt meter.

SOURCE: Need connector block connections for horn wire,relay to button.

The horn switch provides a ground. If you have no voltage at the horn wire, inside the steering whel, I would suspect a bad spiral cable, or clockspring under the steering wheel.

SOURCE: horn fuse keeps blowing out

Check the wiring around the horn and make sure nothing is touching metal...look under the hood at the horn and make sure everything is pluged in and there is no water on any plugs or wiring...Make sure the fuse is the correct number (ex: 10, 20, 25) If it is still blowing out the fuse then you after you do some checking then it is a short in some wires

Horn does not work, diesel engine. it is very faint, bell sound also very faint


Sounds like you may need to just replace your horns. Check for power at the horns while someone is actually pressing on the horn switch ( steering wheel). If you have power, replace horns. If no power, might want to check fuse and horn relay.

I can not get my cooling fan to start no matter how hot my 1991 corvette gets i took it to the shop and tthey ssaid they could force the fan on what's wrong?


well there can be three things wrong, If the mechanic actually umped hte fan then there can only be one of two things wrong with it. 1. the fan relay or the fan temperature switch. the relay is the easiest to test as you can just swap it out with the horn relay and try honking the horn. Horn works then its the fan temperature switch. Horn does not work it is the relay.

Good Luck

Car horn will not switch off i pulled fuse out what is problem


It's either the horn switch in your steering wheel or the relay that powers the horn.
Relays are usually on the firewall or fender wells, both under the hood.
Relays plug on and off easily. Any autoparts store will tell you if you have one on your model.
If it is in the steering wheel, best not to mess with it, if you have airbags.
If no airbags you can try to remove the cover in the middle of the steering wheel and
check the horn switch there. Sometimes these are hard to work on and because you look at the steering wheel constantly, it is a visual bummer if you cant get it back right.
If you want it working correctly, have a shop fix it. If you wish to make it work
yourself, you could go to Radio Shack and buy a Momentary contact switch with
at least a 5 amp rating. All you need to do is connect one side of the switch to ground
(any metal screw that screws into metal-no plastic!) and connect a wire to the other side
and run it up, thru the firewall to the horn. Figure out which wire is the negative on the horn and
unplug it from the horn. Connect your wire to the horn terminal. Now the horn should only work when you press the switch. If the horn has only one wire and it is Positive you may have to run a hot 12 volt
wire from the switch to the horn. Be sure to add a fuse to this setup at the input to the switch. You can
find a 12 volt positive wire under the dash that has power when the key is on. Tap it and add the fuse then connect it to the switch. Run another wire to the horn and you are done. It may sound complictaed but it's not and it will work.

The 85 chrysler got wet from heavy rain now it won't start the battery has been charged and jumped the lights work but dash indacators don't work and the starter doesn't make a sound nothing lights up...


I'm sure the car has seen heavy rain before without causing any problems. Did rain get inside the car or the car driven through high water? Check the fuse panel for evidence of water contamination. Look for burned fuses or corrosion. If you can't find any fuses or relays that got wet, then I would look to the ignition switch.

Push on the horn and I here a ckicking under the glove box but the horn does not work


The clicking is the coil side of the horn relay....That pulls in the contact which carries the heavier currant needed for the horn operation.
To work on this fault you'll need an electrical test meter or light....
  • Locate the actual relay by having someone press the horn and NOT hold it down
  • The clicking will lead you to its position.
  • Unhook it from its bracket and with the meter check that the switching side of the relay is closing when the horn is pressed.
  • If not replace the relay.
  • If power is going across the switching side go to the connection on the horn at the front of the vehicle and check the power output there
  • If you have power there, check to make sure the earth contact to the body is intact.
  • The earth contact is usually through the horn button via a contactor on the steering wheel assembly.
  • I would think that that is fine as the relay is operating.
  • if all power is coming from the relay and the horn is grounded correctly, replace the actual horn.
Have a good honk best regards Johngee10

92 accord horn stopped working after going thought


If your fuse is not blown, then you'll want to test the horn voltage with a test light at the horn while the horn switch is being pressed.

I would suggest unplugging the horn & just testing the wire for 12V + and if you have voltage there but the horn won't work when reconnected you'll have to replace the horn.

If the voltage is missing at the horn connection when you do the test, then it has to be either the fuse or the relay, and finally, the switch on the steering wheel. Wiring is a last consideration based upon the circumstance.

The owners manual will have the fuse & relay location.

It of course would be a coincidence for it to be anything but the horn & I do expect that the horn is bad or has a bad connection which you'll correct when you reconnect it after testing! good luck

2005 sebring convertible- horn goes off by itself for 30 seconds


FIrst off the horn's ground works through the steering wheel,so the wire is bare or the end is broken and grounding in a place where it should not. You will have to check the wires for the horn from the fuse box up to the wheel.
your power feed to the headlights and the door locks has an open ( the power is not connected somewhere ) Perform a wiggle test turn on the headlights and lift the hood,find the power distribution box and begin to wiggle the wire harness.Sometimes the chrysler fuse box under the hood get loose inside the power distribution box,it will have to be broken down all the way to the heavy wires comming out of hte box,you can tighten these connections your self.
