If you know the fuse and relay have power, you should be able to jumper the relay and make the horn blow. The horn pad on the steering wheel usually grounds the relay. If you can jumper the relay and make the horn blow, the problem may be the horn pad or the clockspring in the steering column.
There is three horns on a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado. One on the right side ( Driver's Side ) And two on the Passenger side behind the Fog light assembly that can be accessed by taking out the headlight, real easy to do. The drivers horn is down behind the fog lamp as well but is way harder to get to and I believe that one might be for the alarm factory installed. Good Luck. Robb
Hi Kate: According wth the Silverado Owners Manual, the HORN fuse is located "underhood electrical center" that its located on the drivers side of the engine compartment near the battery. Lift the cover for access to the fuse relay block...
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate
your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about
The click you here is the horn relay, You need to find the horns and check for power at the wire connectors. But you probably have a bad low and now a bad high not horn. since the relay clicks your fuse is good so that eliminates the fuse.
only one horn sounds when you hit the button. the other horn is for the alarm and door locks etc. im not sure which is which, but have someone push the horn button while checking for power and ground at the harness connector. if power and ground are there, replace the horn. for your own sanity, buy an original equipment horn that just plugs right in, a universal aftermarket requires you to frankenstein your wiring. good luck!
No Switch just makes the connection in the steering wheel then the relay,and onto the horn.You may want to take a test light to check all the fuses.There are two fuse boxs.One under the hood on the drivers side behind the batterie,and the other on the end of the dash also on the drivers side.Well hope this helps ,and good luck.
sounds like you have a bad ground somewhere. Check every ground strap that you can find, make sure it's tight, and not corroded, etc. Sounds like the accessories are trying to find a ground, and going through the brake light to do so, thus burning out from too much current.
given that you do in fact have a horn attached to the other end of the button , there is a fuse in your fuse panel for your horn. if the fuse is still good , then check to make sure both wires are hooked up to the horn , and that where its mounted isnt all corroded ....corrision some times prohibits a good ground causing malfunction.
fuel filter? how about power to the fuel pump,loose ground wire to chasis? wiring harness? terminals clean at point of connection?did you check the fuel pump relay? Relay is located in electrical center under the hood on the driver side.relay and fuse legend will be on bottom side of cover, you sould be able to switch with another relay that you know works, ie: switch horn relay with fuel pump relay, honk horn to insure both relays are working when either relay is inserted into horn slot. Do you by chance have the electrical schematic drawing for the fuel pump?
