You most likely need a new clock spring rotating contact under the steering wheel, it is a plastic ribbon with wire in it to connect the horn button and other accessories to the steering wheel while allowing the wheel to turn.

SOURCE: 1986 Chevy Caprice Classic Horn not working

Diagram should be on the inside of the fuse box or relay cluster lid/cover. If Test light has 1 wire and a sharp tip? Yes, but only if you push the horn button too ;-)

My guess is that the horn lost its ground, but you can check this with the light. The horn only beeps when both GROUND and Pos 12v are present. The horn button gives the relay 12v to close, and the relay gives the horn 12v to operate. The ground is always connected.

Connect tester clipwire to 12v source (battery, headlight (has to be on) and touch its tip to metal of car. Does it light? Good. the tester is working and the 12v is a good source.

Touch one of the 2 horn connection or wires (poke it thru the plastic - why tip is sharp). Does it light? Touch the other, does it?

If both light, (1 will be brighter) we can assume the horn coil is good and it is getting a good ground and I was wrong (it happens... but not often). The side that is BRIGHTER is the ground wire side.

Now have someone mash the horn button. Do you hear a tiny click? That is the horn relay. If not, look for the horn relay fuse and replace it. If you DID hear the click, the relay coil is good and is trying to switch 12v to drive the horn.

Now is time to locate and replace the horn fuse or the relay may have bad contacts. Look at the other relay part numbers in the cluster and see if there is a match for the horn one. Swap it out and try the horn.

Hope this all helps. To 'test' the horn, touch the dim side again anf listen for a scratching sound. That is the 12v going thru the tiny bulb in the tester (a resistance) and trying to drive the horn.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: horn doesnt work but fuses and relay are good

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

The horn relay is in the fuse/relay box under the hood. so the fuse is HOT on both sides? you should hear the horn relay click when pressing on the horn switch. there may be other relays in that fuse box to swap with and see if the horns work, if the relay clicks, its "usually" good, but the contacts may be bad. if the relay clicks, check for power at the horn. DARK GREEN wire, if it has power , then check the black wire, thats the ground. If it has power and ground, but does not work, the horn is bad.

Horn not working on a 1995 Chevrolet Cavalier


Can you hear a clicking noise when pressing the horn pad? That would indicate that the fuse, contacts, and relay are working.

This vehicle has only one horn and and you'll find it behind the front bumper on the right side. Disconnect the single wire from it and check it with a test light. Attach the test light to a good ground and probe the connector while an assistant presses the horn pad for you. If the test light glows the circuit is good. Remove the one bolt that attaches the horn bracket an replace the horn.

2003 gmc 2500 hd..horn doesn't work


The horn pad is made of vinyl which contracts through the four seasons causing this problem for some. Remove the horn pad with the battery disconnected first of all. Use a jumper wire to see if the horn works. If id does check the horn relay next. If ok hot wire the horn direct. One should be your problem or it is a broken wire instead
