Don't know how particular you want to get but a simple little black spring loaded pushbutton mounted where you like, with a hot wire from fuse panel or other source as long as its protected by an inline fuse of some kind, and attached to one terminal on back of button & a wire from other terminal on button, out through firewall and to the horn connection, will probably do it.

Alarm horn will not turn off


do you have the alarm option, factory?
there are 2 horns
and 1 horn relay.
if the horn relay is energized, then the inputs to it are bad.
bad input is the horn relay has 12v across is coil pins, all the time.
so unplug the horn wires. silence.
then check relay , now that its quiet. is the coil hot?
hot means 12vdc across it. not thermal hot.
the relay on the 97 can be active for 2 reasons.
1: horn button stuck on, so pull that wire.Gray-org, at column
2: BCM is active same color, C2 in 13 is 0volts. (active)
if the BCM is honking the horn, we ask why, and that be alarm.
im reading at alldata.com so can you , under antithieft alarm sections.
if the alarm is activated, (is it) and any door switch is open, the horn honks.
if the gray-org. wires is at 12vdc , then the relay is bad
shorted, main contacts inside.
if the wire is 0v, its wrong.
ill stop, and wait until you find which it is, bad relay, bad horn button
or bad BCM or bad input to BCM.

TOYOTA ECHO HORN


The problem is one of three possibles:

  1. The horn switch (button) on the steering wheel.
  2. The horn relay.
  3. The wiring associated with the two items above.

If you press the horn button and know where the horn relay is, you can listen for it to activate. If it does, then either the relay's output contacts are bad or the wiring between the relay and horn is faulty. If the relay doesn't activate, test for voltage at the relay coil with an multimeter in the relay socket. If there is voltage there when the horn button is pressed, then the relay is bad. If there is no voltage there, the the horn button or associated wiring is faulty.

Horn does not work when deperess


The caravan horn is a weak one. Locate the horn and disconnect the plug. One wire is hor all the time and it runs off the horn fuse in the undrhood fuse relay panel next to the battery. With a test light verify that the one wire is hot all the time. ( A test light is a tool looks like an ice pick with a clear handle that has a light bulb inside the handle has a wire coming out of it with a clip on the end, connect the clip to a metal ground and anything that electricly powered will light the light bulb in the handle) If it's hot then put the pointer in the other wire ( In the horns plug) and connect the clip of the light to the battery positive, Push the horn button and the light should light, if it does the horn is bad. If not the horn button or the clockspring is bad. The clockspring is the connection beteen the steering whell and the steering collum, It's a coil of ribbon cable that has the wires for the airbag the horn and any buttons for cruise control or radio volume or channels that may be the steering wheel. this cable can break or be overloaded and burn out. Most of the time when they fail the airbag light will be on the the cruise control won't work. The horn button is made into the airbag and seldom fails the fuse is second the horns fail often.

My 2005 Equinox horn quit, is there a fuse I can replace? It looks like a square box that marked horn on the fuse box.


Hello,
That's the horn fuse,you have located it;
I will assume that you have checked for a blown fuse, and that the fuse is good!! If not, check that first!With a test light and a jumper wire, you can locate the problem with little effort!
You can get a test light from any auto supply store, or from Wal-mart! They are only a few dollars and are a very helpful thing to have.

A jumper wire is just a piece of wire, that you can use to run power from one location to another! If you want to be fancy, you can put alligator clips on both ends!

-Start by locating the horns and pulling the wire off of one. Attach your test light to a ground and use the probe (pointed end) to connect to the horn wire.

-Have someone hit the horn button on the steering wheel! If the test light lights, then the horn(s) are bad and will need to be replaced! Just to be sure, take your jump wire and run from the positive battery post to the horn power connector (where you pulled off the wire) and make sure that the horn does not sound with direct power!


-If there is no power to the horn, you will need to check the horn relay to see if it is getting power. If it is the relay is bad! If there is no power to the relay, the problem is in the steering column or steering wheel horn button!


-Most likely the horn or the horn relay is bad!


Good luck!!!

Horn does not work on 97 tercel, benche checked horn ok, took of cover on relay and manually touched contacts together and horn works. Problem appears to be either relay, button or wires. Can the horn...


In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.

Horn not working changed relay fuse is good.


Could be the horn button on the steering wheel, (When you push the button on the steering wheel do you hear the relay click on?). Other than that the horns are bad or the ground wires on them are corroded. (Pull the signal wires off the horns and try to sound them with a wire connected to (+) positive on the battery, be careful, you can get a shock engaging a horn with power.)

Horn , power windows and sunroof all stoped working on 2007 changed horn fuse and as soon as i used the horn the fuse blew again


This wold indicate that you have a shorted horn circuit. Generally, the horn circuit has a negative contact at the steering wheel, meaning when you push the button, it grounds (-) the sysem causing the relay out in the engine compartment area to provide 12V (+) directly to the horn. If nothing else causes the fuse to blow, the pwr window/sunroof., then either the relay itself is shorting out or a wire to the horn is grounding, or you have a bad horn. (spend a few fuses & save time, unplug the relay, replace the fuse & press the horn button & see if the fuse blows. Next, plug in the relay & do the same for the horn)

Generally it won't be the wire from the horn button or the horn would be working continually. Your owners manual should tell you where the relay is & you could see if you notice any unusual appearance to the case, as well as following the wiring from there to the horn, to see if any damage is apparent. IE: if the horn is located in the front grill area or near a opening in the fenderwell, does it appear a rock or something has hit it or any wiring causing damage. With a vehicle as new as yours, if it isn't obvious damage, I would suspect the relay. good luck

No horn


You have to test the wiring between the relay and the horn. First make sure that you have 12 volts at the relay terminal that feeds the horn, then make sure that the wire on the horn is getting the 12 volts when you push the button. Finally make sure the ground is good where the horn is mounted. If the ground is bad, run a ground wire from the engine block or battery to the point where the horn is mounted.

If all wiring is good, then you need a new horn

Van horn wont work


If your Air Bag light light is aluminated and The Cruise Control does not Work then the Problem is in the "CLOCK SPRING" this Component is Located Under the Steering Wheel and it requires the Steering Wheel to Be Removed.You Must have Complete Instructions on this Procedure or Injury Can Be the result.
