SOURCE: Horn honked randomly but is now constant. I have

If you take the steering wheel off you'll see the ground wire that grounds the constantly connected horn. Note the color of the insulation.

You could also reroute the wire from under the hood starting at the horns and simply connecting a switch that grounds the horn out to operate it with an outside switch, that is outside of the steering wheel.

SOURCE: 2004 Buick Century, horn quit working, replaced

Start by having someone press the horn while you feel the relay with your finger. If the relay clicks when the horn is pressed then the switch is working properly and your problem is between the relay and horn assembly.

My horn WILL NOT work


Where are you connecting the tester to? If you are connecting one lead to the negative terminal on the battery and the other to the horn wire and it lights up try connecting a wire from the horn housing (bare metal) to the negative battery terminal and attach the horn wire to the horn and try it. if that works the ground path from the battery to the horn mounting place is broken somewhere. you may have to run a negative wire to the horn mounting place to make it work properly. Hope this helps.

Horns not working,original relay 43yrs old !


You hear clicking at horns, and not the relay? Maybe the horns went bad, or maybe you need to check and clean the connections there.
Don\'t know why the cab light went dim, unless the horn wire was trying to make contact?
Yes, TJ, the horn wire should be hot. You are grounding that hot wire when you press for the horn. That hot wire comes from the coil side of the horn relay. Press for horn, it grounds the coil side of relay, and the relay can pass power to the horns.
Now back to the clicking no-honker horns: power gets to the horns when relay is energized, and there has to be a good ground for horns to work. I don\'t know if your horns are case grounded or a wire from horns goes to ground, but check the ground there. If case grounded, pull horns off and clean the ground. Also might try a known good horn. Keep at it, sounds like you are almost there.

Renault Kangoo, horn not working, have checked wiring and tested it, also fuse ok. Please advise if the horn feeds through the ECU unit?


Horns are pretty simple units and don't need to feed through the ECU.
When you say you have checked the wiring and tested it, do you mean the wiring at the horns? or the wiring at the horn button on the steering wheel pad or where ever your horn button is located?
Sometimes the horn button breaks usually due to wear, If that is the case you will need to remove the horn pad or button and check/repair or replace. If this is working then most likely your horns are dead, not usual as they are fairly robust but not unheard of.

Horn doesn't work


Check the fuses. Check the relay for the horn.Check the connections to the horns. There will be 2 horns disconnect both. Use a test light ground it to the battery and stick the probe in the wire connector for any of the horns. Have someone press the horn button. If your getting power the test light should light when the horn button is pressed. If it does? You have wither bad grounded horns or bad horns period.
If the test light doesn't light? You have a problem in the steering column remove the steering wheel and you will see in there a plastic ring with a copper or brass button that drags on another ring to power the horn button. these pieces ware out and the spring loses its tension. This is a common problem with Ford Trucks.
Good luck
Please give me good feed back of somekind for me on here.
Thanks

The horn on my 1993 ford 250 econoline does not work. I checked the fuses and relay. All are good. the cruise works what is wrong what did I miss?


OK, take the steering wheel cover off for the button and verify that the switch or button there is grounding out.

Use a test light (non-powered) to connect the circuit together to see if this sounds the horn.

Horns are always powered with positive power and are grounded out by the horn switch in the steering wheel.

Hope this helps.

Horn not working changed relay fuse is good.


Could be the horn button on the steering wheel, (When you push the button on the steering wheel do you hear the relay click on?). Other than that the horns are bad or the ground wires on them are corroded. (Pull the signal wires off the horns and try to sound them with a wire connected to (+) positive on the battery, be careful, you can get a shock engaging a horn with power.)

How can i connect 2 new horns in my grand marquis car 1996 ?


Every horn needs two things...positive power and ground. You will need to verify what your old horn wiring does, as an example...the horn may be grounded to the body, and positive voltage flows through the wire to the horn when the horn button on the steering wheel is pressed. The other way is to have a positive at the horn, and the ground is given to the horn with the button pressed.
This is best verified with a volt meter or test light.
Your new horns may have on wire plug, it would be for the positive, as it gets ground from being bolted to the body.
You can realistically place the new horns anywhere, as you might have to extend your wiring to reach.

HORN DOESNT WORK


a very common cause of this problem is the steering wheel mounted horn button looses it's connection to the horn circuit due to a defective ribbon rotating contact under the steering wheel, the special clock spring shaped ribbon wiring harness is what allows you to turn the wheel and still have a connection to all steering wheel buttons and the airbag, to check this listen for a click when u press the horn button with the engine off, it will be faint but if u listen closely u will hear it, if u don't hear it u will ned to replace the Clock-Spring rotating contact under the steering wheel.
