Probably the switch in the steering wheel, or fuse, but usually horn fuse works other things too such as cig lighter or radio. If everything else is working fine, then to troubleshoot you'll need a testlight. I would start with the wiring harness where the steering collumn plugs in and decipher which wire is the horn wire. Put the test light clip on +power, then check the wires on the collumn side one by one, pushing the horn button on each one. The horn switch is the wire that makes the light blink when you push the button. If you try all the wires and none make the light blink, then its probably a problem with the horn switch in the s. wheel. Does it have an after market steering wheel? Because aftermarket wheels often have crappy horn switches in them. Also could be a horn relay if it has one. If you listen carfully while pushing the horn, you should hear the relay faint clicking. If you hear this, then the switch is working, but the relay might not be. Follow the sound to find it if you hear it. Test all sides of the relay with your light. Should get power constant on one term, and the other two should light when the horn button is pushed. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Horn on my 1991 Toyota pickup only works when steering wheel cranked hard right!


There is a small round connector inside of the steering wheel that allows the wheel to turn and the horn to still make electrical connection. It sounds like this is worn and not making good connection any longer. I would see about finding some replacement parts and having them replaced.

The horn does not work on the 1986 Toyota pickup - what can I do?


Start with the fuse. If good, then check the wire. It is a single brown wire, horn is grounded at it's attachment point to the body, between the front grille and radiator on the driver's side. Starting there is easiest. Use a test light at the connector clip while pushing the horn button. If the circuit is good, but no sound, you need a new horn. Often times, wear and tear will cause the clip to fall off the blade contact. If the circuit is no good, pull the center plug from the steering wheel and check the circular contact ring and tab. The ring can build up gunk and also wear through, then not make proper contact with the horn button contact tab.

1985 toyota pickup 22r engine horn does not work replaced fuse under hood replaced conductors in steering wheel still does not work


make sure the horn itself is grounded to the body... take off one of the screws that holds the horn to the body and sand down any paint or rust off of body and horn base so that a good ground connection can be made..

Horn does not work


THE HORN MAY BE BAD. HORN FAIL FROM AGE & LONG PERIODS OF NON USE. TRY PUTTING BATTERY POWER RIGHT TO THE HORN. IF NO SOUND OR VERY POOR RESPONSE, GET A NEW HORN. IF IT SOUNDS LIKE A HORN, CHECK THE HORN FUSE WITH A TESTER, " THERE SHOULD BE POWER ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FUSE. IF THE FUSE IS GOOD, PULL THE STEERING WHEEL, THERE MAY BE A WORN BRASS CONTACT STICKING UP. PUT A WIRE FROM THAT CONTACT TO SOME METAL UNDER THE DASH, IF THE HORN WORKS YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK ON THAT CONTACT OR MAYBE THE HORN BUTTON ON THE STEERING WHEEL
