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

When to jumpstart a 2005 Toyota Avalon horn sounded Now there is no power to radio or starter?


Did you hook the jumper cables up backwards, if so you have big problems. It should be red to red on battery post marked (+), black cable to the engine any bare metal.

Horn stopped working. how to fix?


Check to see if there is 12 volts at the horn positive connection when someone pushes the horn button on the steering wheel. If there is voltage, and no sound, you need a new horn. If there is no voltage when the horn button is pressed, you need to troubleshoot the rest of the electrical circuit. First look in your fuse box for a blown horn fuse. Then try replacing the horn relay.

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.
