That's weird,check the small black cable on the negative batt.
terminal,should run to the chassis somewhere,make sure the ground is clean and tight.Sounds like a grounding problem ,either the batt.
chassis ground or the headlight ground.

How about ground. The horn must receive 12 volts and ground to work. If its getting both, change the horn.

Where is horn located on 2003 chevy caviler


Horn(s) are typically located under the hood, behind and near the headlight assembly. It is not uncommon for a horn to stop working over time. It is also not unlikely that horn button in the steering column fails. To verify that the button is working, get the car to a very quiet location. Turn off all radios, blowers, etc. to make the car interior as quiet as possible. When you press the horn button, listen for a "click" noise from under the dashboard. This is the horn relay. If that happens, you know that the button(s) in the steering wheel are ok. If you don't hear the click, then the horn button or the horn relay may be the cause of the horn not working.

Can not get horn to blow on a 2001 malibu


2001 malibu horn fuse and relay are located in the under the hood fuse box.
location 21 should be the relay
location 43 should be the fuse.
if the relay is put in wrong the horn will not work. if you replaced the relay and the horn stopped working try pulling the relay out and turning it around. and try the horn again.

My horn don't work, is there a fuse i change? or what do i need to do and where is it?


it is behind and under the left front headlight. depending on what year you have, a generic parts store horn or one from a junkyard will work. the 96-99 horn had a built in relay, so you can only replace with a like horn. if you have 3 wires, then it is a built in relay type. if it is not a built in relay type get a new relay at a parts store and try replacing that first. it is in the fuse panel. horn switches in the steering wheel have been known to go bad also, but steering wheel problems are usually horn going off when turning.

If you do not have the 3 wire type. trying jumping the battery voltage directly to the horn. if it beeps then it is not your problem.

The horn in my 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT dues not wrok how do i fix it and get to it thank you Michelle


check the relay and fuse first. it is in underhood fuse box on drivers side. the fuse is # 43 and its a mini fuse. the relay is # 21 and its a micro relay. to access horn remove right front headlight housing. on top of headlight housing there are 2 plastic slide pins. just pull them up to release housing. then look down to horn. when putting housing back on just push in on housing and push pins back down. have a good one !!

2005 sebring convertible- horn goes off by itself for 30 seconds


FIrst off the horn's ground works through the steering wheel,so the wire is bare or the end is broken and grounding in a place where it should not. You will have to check the wires for the horn from the fuse box up to the wheel.
your power feed to the headlights and the door locks has an open ( the power is not connected somewhere ) Perform a wiggle test turn on the headlights and lift the hood,find the power distribution box and begin to wiggle the wire harness.Sometimes the chrysler fuse box under the hood get loose inside the power distribution box,it will have to be broken down all the way to the heavy wires comming out of hte box,you can tighten these connections your self.
