Question about 1994 Toyota Pickup

The horn on my truck stopped working

I have a 1994 Toyota 4x4 truck (NOT a Tacoma) in which the horn stopped working. Is it a fuse, wiring or the horn itself, that needs to be repaired/replaced. Is this something I can fix myself? and how do I do this?

    I have the same problem,only I know it is not the fuse because I checked that. Mine stopped working when I went over a pothole, so I think it is some sort of connection problem. And my truck is a '99 toyota tacoma 2-wheel drive.

Check your fuses first for a blown fuse. Also try to recall last time you used the horn, and if it sounded muffled, quieter than normal or just not right, and if it was acting up it's more than likely the horn, wich is located under the bumper by the fender usualy. Also remove your horn button on the wheel, and make sure the wire is conected, and intact.
Hope this helps, Good luck!

2000 Toyota Tacoma Horn Relay location needs replacing


1- The HORN fuse is located in the fuse panel on the driver's side under the engine hood. Of course, if it is "blown" replace with the SAME size or smaller and retest the horn.
2- Verify the horn itself (isolated) using one wire attached to the Main Battery + (POSITIVE) to the spade terminal on the horn. The horn can be accessed after carefully unclipping the fasteners connecting the front grill to the radiator area- just be careful- work slowly. The horn is naturally grounded to the vehicle frame.
3- If the horn sounds with the direct bypass voltage test move to the cab. when you depress the combo horn pad/airbag listen carefully for the relay behind the left under-dash area. If you hear it, then the relay is "closing" but it still may be bad or the voltage from the horn relay is not getting to the horn. I would replace the relay. However, there may still be a wiring problem to the horn.
4- The Horn Relay for the '00 Toyota Tacoma V6 4WD I worked on was BEHIND the cabin fuse panel on the far left driver's side (oh thanks guys). I went to the trouble of pulling down this relay/fuse block- it was not exactly "easy" but I am not a beginner and had the tools and my curiosity and sleuthness prevailed. If the new relay does not fix this issue my next step is to replace the wire from that relay to the horn. Again, not easy but not impossible either. Take you time, use the right tools and materials & check your work. The only other option was mentioned earlier- drop in a new momentary switch (lighted?) into the dash and run a new wire. I would NOT use switched power so it can be used without the vehicle running... I think it is safer. This is a view of the interior panel dropped down. One of the relays can be seen- the grey cube with a empty relay socket just to the right. Why they put these here- is anyone's guess.

Toyota Tacoma '03 horn sticks


If you are getting water in the fuse box, it could be shorting the system out and in turn the horn would blow. Some manufactures put 2 fuses for the horn too. One for the horn and one for the horn relay. That is another one, maybe the relay is bad or wet. Hope i put some light on your answer. Good luck!!

Horn/lights on 2002 Toyota Tacoma


Rewire your horn from the steering wheel to the horn. Its not difficult, I can't tell you how to take the steering wheel apart but you can get a Haynes Repair Manual. It'll have all you need and more. You can use speaker wire, split it in two. Run one cable from the positive in the battery to the horn switch in the steering wheel. Another from the switch to the horn. You have a short somewhere, to me is easier just to run new wires than to find the short-circuit. Make sure when you run the cables through the firewall you run through a grommet so it does not get damaged by metal. Before anything check your headlight wires that they are not touching the horn.
