To to check for voltage at the horn itself (testlight)
Usually it is the actual horn that is bad , not the switch.

V50 horn doesn't work

Press panic button on the remote to check if horn is broken or if the switch in the steering wheel does not work.
Also check fuse for steering wheel module.

How do I fix the horn on my volvo?

Depending on what is wrong with this horn is the first step. I would check the fuse first off. Replace if needed. Then I would test the wires at the horn and make sure they complete a circuit. If that does not solve it it could be in the steering wheel which is a pretty good size job. Let me know if this solves it and we can go from there.

SRS Light on Dash Illuminated

Sounds like either you did not connect the seat belt restraint wiring when the seats where put back in. This is a common problem. You will need to look under the seat and make sure that there are no loose wiring at all. The SRS is for the seatbelts.

The horn on my volvo 240 doesnt work. Theres no power by the horn, so i took of the steeringwheel. And no power there either. The fuse is ok and power on both sides of it. So is there a relay somewhere...

Most likely yes, you nailed it. But it might be just unplugged. Look for a small metal box on the firewall or fenders of engine compartment. Often they are near the horn, if I had a Volvo 240, I'd be able to tell you exactly where, sorry.

Volvo S60 2005 horns not working

Remove the wire connector from each horn and attach a voltmeter or test light. Have a helper push the horn button while you check for voltage. If there's no power getting to the horns you have to work your way back to the relay checking for shorts. If there is power try holding the horns metal mount against a good ground like an engine bolt or the sub frame. And with wire reconnected have your helper try the horn again. If it sounds then clean rust away from mounting bolt and car (rad support or grill bracket), and look for a loose or broken ground strap to the rad support (from either the battery or engine). If both horns still don't work either they're clogged with snow or dirt (bring them inside to defrost or clean out), or they need to be replaced.

Alarm sounds everytime key removed from ignition?

There is a switch either in or on the driver door that turns on the interior lights and tells the module the door is open and the key is still in the ignition, this sounds the alarm, check all the doors and make sure they turn the interior lights on and off when the doors are opened and closed.

Horn broken. Not the fuse.

It depends on if the relay makes a clicking sound. This will help you figure out your problem. Everything between the horn button and relay is good if it makes a solid click sound when you press the horn button. So then the problem is in the power side of the circuit. Usually the relay contacts or horn.
And then if there is no click that means the problem is on the control side. Which is the steering-column wiring or horn buttons!
