It sound like the horn is the problem. You may need to purchase a new horn located in the front grill somewhere. I hope this helps.

My horn was replaced on my 2006 kia sedona and sometimes it wont honk and sometimes it will


I pulled the center out of the steering wheel and grounded the horn contact. The horn honked like it should. This is on our 2006 KIA Sedona. The horn used to work once in awhile, but not at all now. This leads me to believe that the clockspring in the steering column is defective. I will call the dealer on Monday to see if there is a warranty fix, but I doubt that there is.

2003 ford explorer eddie bauer horn randomly honking


One honk means all doors are closed. Door ajar you have 2 honks telling you a door is open. My 03 Explorer has had the door ajar light on for awhile

Horn randomly honks(very annoying while your trying to sleep) HELP!


its possible that the relay is the problem as most relays have a second power feed wire,if it shorts to the horn side of the relay it can blow the horn.doesn`t happen very often but it does happen.this could explain the horn blowing without the fuse in.you can get a door key made at a lock smith to solve that problem.

I have a 1992 lincoln towncar! when i press the horn button ,i get a clicking sound from under the hood..I tried pressing again a short honk then nothing the relay fuse is good and the fuse is good what is...


You may have a poor connection in the wiring to the horns or the grounding connection. The click you hear is the horn relay. Have someone press the horn button while you wiggle wires. Also try rapping on the horns themselves with a stick or screwdriver handle--if that makes them honk, the internal contacts may be bad. Replace them if that is so, as they are usually sealed. Hope this helps!

Kia Rio 1.5 diesel Factory alarm,car horn honking,side indicators flashing,unable to start the car. When I arm the car with the fob and unlock the door with the key then open the door the horn starts...


The fob is infamous for its battery life. It gets drained so quickly that there happens to be a little later when the fob is very close to the door lock, ignition & unnecessary triggers the alarm due to low reception as the battery of the fobs discharges very fast, depending on the model, which has a certain virtual sheild(STARTRECK type) which is triggered by the fobs strength of the signal(radi waves).

Why not try a new set of batteries for your fob?? .................................sodeep
