Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

My 99 Toyota Avalon horn does not make any sound.

My 99 Toyota Avalon does not make any sound when you press the horn push button. The horn works fine with direct power from battery. I replaced the horn relay and fuses are fine. Repaired manual says to replace the horn push button but there is no switch in the steering wheel. Can you help please?

    Thanks nicolasmp for the info. I followed your instructions but I don’t know how to fix the horn contacts at the steering wheel under the air bag. I didn’t see a switch under the air bag, but saw only metal contacts with a wire connected to the bottom contact. Toyota dealers told me that I needed to purchase the horn contact which come with other things and is very expensive. So I am back where I started. Does anyone have the same problem and know a solution?

Save yourself the hassle , buy yourself a momentary 12volt switch drill a nice clean hole on your driversside dash and re-wire your horn to it, all the screwing around you'll do to figure out why toyota makes cheesy horn contacts you could have your problem fixed..



on one side of the switch you should run a wire that is a 12volt switched +
on the other side I would run another side run a new power wire to your horn
leave your horns stock ground and just replace the HOTLINE ..

you could even go as far as installing a la cou ca racha horn to bring back that 70's Lowrider feel lol

My 2004 Toyota Avalon xls driver side digital thermostat will not go from cold to hot when press up on the temp button... My passenger side works just fine I can adjust the temp all the way from 85 to 60...


It truly sounds as if the temp control panel has failed. Could be a contact in the temp control button. I am basing this on the fact that everything else is working correctly. You can usally find an inexpensive one through Car-Part.com or Ebay.

Toyota avalon 1999 horn does not work does steering wheel come off to look at it


You could check if current runs to the horn wires when the horn switch is pressed. If ok, then the horn itself may be old. Next thing is the fuse, the grounding source, the horn-wire plugs.

1999 toyota avalon horn works intermitely


I would suggest to you to have the spiral cable (or 'clockspring') replaced. This is the electrical unit that transfers power to the air bag, the horn and the cruise control.

It is located right under the seering wheel.

Your description of the issue indicates to me that your spiral cable is loose, and making intermittant contact. If the vehicle had an air-bag deployment, this cable-device should have been changed.

Toyota Avalon 1998 A/C Push Button


If when button is pushed in it stays in the AC-light lights up, then you may have another problem like a leak in the system N0/low Freon in system and AC would n't work. But if the switch doesn' t stay push in when its pushed then the switch is BAd and needs to be replace and that will solve the problem. If the switch stays push in with NO AC light on then you may have a bad Ac fuse. Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya

1985 Toyota Pickup Horn


Probably the switch in the steering wheel, or fuse, but usually horn fuse works other things too such as cig lighter or radio. If everything else is working fine, then to troubleshoot you'll need a testlight. I would start with the wiring harness where the steering collumn plugs in and decipher which wire is the horn wire. Put the test light clip on +power, then check the wires on the collumn side one by one, pushing the horn button on each one. The horn switch is the wire that makes the light blink when you push the button. If you try all the wires and none make the light blink, then its probably a problem with the horn switch in the s. wheel. Does it have an after market steering wheel? Because aftermarket wheels often have crappy horn switches in them. Also could be a horn relay if it has one. If you listen carfully while pushing the horn, you should hear the relay faint clicking. If you hear this, then the switch is working, but the relay might not be. Follow the sound to find it if you hear it. Test all sides of the relay with your light. Should get power constant on one term, and the other two should light when the horn button is pushed. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Horn broken. Not the fuse.


It depends on if the relay makes a clicking sound. This will help you figure out your problem. Everything between the horn button and relay is good if it makes a solid click sound when you press the horn button. So then the problem is in the power side of the circuit. Usually the relay contacts or horn.
And then if there is no click that means the problem is on the control side. Which is the steering-column wiring or horn buttons!
