Question about 1995 Geo Prizm
Thank you for your response. If its a horn ring, is that a dealer only repair and replacement item? What is the approximate cost for such a diagnostic/repair?
Last question. Is that something that a beginner like myself could do with the right CHILTON's step by step help?
The car is only worth about $1000 so trying to weigh the options.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

you asked only how to access a part.
and not how to diagnose it.
why skip disgnose, and save a ton of work.
(ie: horn bench tested ok.)
horn ground not bad (rust)
horn relay good>? (if found) i have no schematics on this old car.cept engine.
have a $10 volt meter?
defeat the air bags ,or risk breaking neck.
