If you can remove the horn, spray some wd40 or other solvent into it and turn it so that the solvent will run into the center. Usually that will free it up. Or, just get another from a junkyard!

HOrn makes a noise but very weak noise. should i replace the horn or horn relay?


Run a thick wire straight from the battery to the positive terminal of the horn. If the horn sounds normal, replace the relay. If the horn is still weak, locate the adjustment screw and play with that to try improve the tone, if that does not work or if there is no screw, replace the horn,

96 laredo, bogs down only when first taking off. Hot or cold. The rest of the time it runs okay.


It sounds like you are getting a weak spark to one or more cylinders. I would start by checking that all of your spark plugs are connected. Make sure the plug wires are in good condition and connected in the proper firing order. If applicable, check your distributor cap and rotor for damage or wear.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee alarm keeps randomly going off.


this happened to me recently with my 96 grand cherokee. the battery got drained by the alarm going off randomly at night. i pulled the fuse for the horn so at least my neighbors would only be bothered by flashing lights. then i couldn't jump the car because the alarm was still going off. i hooked my car to jump it to another car, and then i had to deactivate the alarm first by putting my key in the driver side door and unlocking the car. then i left it hooked to another car and still getting power but didn't jump it for at least 5 minutes in case the computer needed to reset. then it jumped fine. from what i've read online, this is a common problem that can be avoided if you stop using the power locks and always manually lock and unlock the doors with your key. its a little annoying, but apparently the power locks are connected to the alarm issue. hope the same works for you.
