SOURCE: Horn blows fuses

The most common cause of this short is the horn coil, replace the horn and the problem will be fixed, a quick test is to disconnect the horn and press the horn button, if the fuse doesn't blow the horn is the problem.

SOURCE: Horn won't blow even after replacing fuse.

Clean all the connections at the horn. Check for power at the horn. If there is power at the horn, check for a good earth. You may even fit a new earth cable. Failing these solutions, you may need to get a replacement horn.

SOURCE: horn fuse keeps blowing out

Check the wiring around the horn and make sure nothing is touching metal...look under the hood at the horn and make sure everything is pluged in and there is no water on any plugs or wiring...Make sure the fuse is the correct number (ex: 10, 20, 25) If it is still blowing out the fuse then you after you do some checking then it is a short in some wires

SOURCE: No horn in '94 Jeep Grand Cherokee

go to the horn under your hood, check it for any thing wrong, then follow the power wire and follow it back to your steering wheal. this is where your problem is you just have to find out where the short is. and fix it.

95 GMC Sierra horn does not work, fuse keeps blowing.


the fuse blows because somewhere after the fuse , the wire is dead shorting out to ground
check / replace any horn relays

use a multimeter set on ohms resistance and that will tell you that it is shorting out as it will register as a circuit

check the parking light fuse or taillight fuse to make sure it has not blown. replace it if it has blown and see if the lights work or if the fuse blows again. if it blows when you turn the lights on then you have a short circuit that needs repaired. if the fuses are good ,then most likely the headlight switch is bad not allowing the taillights or dash lights to work.

Have a short in the Horn/dome light fuse on a 1990 chevy suburban, keeps blowing fuse even when truck isn't on. using a 20 amp fuse and with truck completely off as soon as the fuse is put in it blows...


You will have to trace the wiring. There is a short somewhere before it reaches the actual horn or light. Horns pull an extreme amount of amperage. The relay may be stuck or the wiring to the switch may be bad. My bet would be a shorted switch or relay.

The horn won't honk. What do I need to do to fix the problem. What does it mean to have service ride control show up/


If you hear clicking near the engine compartment fuse and relay box when the horn pad is pressed, then you need to check the horn fuse,(probably have to look the location up in the owners manual) if the fuse is blown, you may have shorted out horns or a short in the wiring to the horns. Usually there are two horns for the vehicle and if you install a good fuse in the horn circuit then unplug one horn and test the operation the horn may work or the fuse will blow again. If the horn works, disconnect it and reconnect the other and retest,if the horn does not work and the fuse blows, you have found your bad horn. Good luck.

There are two main causes for Service Ride Control message - active strut failure and accelerometer failure.

I just bought a 2000 Saturn SL 4-dr sedan. It's in great shape, but the horn doesn't work and the dashboard light don't work. Is this a simple fix with replacing the fuses or dash light or is it a little...


Check fuse for horn and for dash lights. If the interior lights work then suspect dimmer switch for the dash lights. If you press the horn button do you hear a click under the hood or inside the car? If you do not then the fuse is blown and if the fuse is good then the relay may be suspected bad. If the fuse is good and the relay clicks then suspect the horn to be bad. If fuse is blown and you put a new one in and you push the horn and the fuse blows again, then disconnect the horn before replacing the fuse again. Then push the horn button and see if you hear the relay click if you hear a click the the horn is bad or wiring butmost likely the horn. If you have the horn unplugged and the fuse is good and you push thee horn button and no relay click suspect the horn button to be bad. Hope this helps.

On my 1972 duster,when i blow the horn,the fuse blows and the tail lights go out also. the same fuse runs both.what could be the problem?


This sounds like the horn may have a short in it somewhere. Does the horn blow at all? Try this: Make sure you have a good fuse installed to this circuit again. Disconnect the horn and place a volt/ohm meter set to DC volts on the horn connections. If there is just 1 wire going to the horn, put that wire on the red wire of the meter. Put the black wire of the meter to a good ground, preferably the negative battery terminal. Now press the horn and see if there is a reading of around 12 Volts. If so, replace the horn. If not, and the fuse blows again, check the wiring for a fray/short to ground. When you're looking at the horn of course, make sure the positive lead isn't shorting to ground as well.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need any more assistance! :)

04 CooperS: Horn does not work


Check the fuse first. should be in the drivers footwell. Make sure that it is not blown. 90% of the time fuse will just blow due to high resistance from one of the horns. There is a high and low horn often it requires to replace one and try the horn and see if it blows. Then replace the horn that blows the fuse.

Horn blows fuses


you may need to put a relay in it as the current from the horn may be back feeding up the immobiliser horn circuit and causing a short. Sounds like the immobiiliser has its own source of power seperate from the factory circuit When you press the horn the power goes to the horn and up the immobiliser horn circuit and it blows the fuse.

Find horn, remove wire connector from it, try new fuse, push horn again, if fuse blows, you have short somewhere between, if it doesn't, it's the horn.
