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.

Location horn relay on 82 cj7


The horn relay primary receives + full time and is actuated by receiving ground (-) from the horn button. Check ground continuity at the horn button (at the steering wheel) to make sure it is working first (most likely culprit). If the horn button is working, check to see if the horn relay is working (second most likely culprit). To test the horn relay, provide chassis or battery ground to the (-) primary terminal of the horn relay and see if the horn honks. If it does, that will tell you that the problem is in the wiring between the steering wheel and the relay, most likely a disconnected wire at the steering column.
The only other components in the system are the fuse for the horn circuit (if you have 12v at the horn relay, that is fine), and the horn itself. My bet is on the horn button pad itself.

Why does the horn go off when in the heat and parked


Sounds like the horn button is getting hot and warping,causing it to close the circuit and activate the horn.I don't remember if the horn switch is part of the airbag or seperate.If the horn buttons are seperate,just replace them.If they are part of the airbag,the proper repair aint gonna be cheap(you'll have to replace the airbag).A low tech solution would be to lower the interior temps when parked.(maybe get a set of VentVIsors that allow you to keep the windows cracked open while keeping the rain out,combined with one of those reflective silver windshield panels).

Horn problem on 2001 ford explorer xlt


Hi there,

Inspect the following components, in this order (with key off) until you get it working:

** Disconnect the plugs from the Horn terminals. Run separate jumper wires from the Batt (NEG & POS), to the horn. If horn does not work, then replace horn. If horn works fine, then continue....

** Check fuse # 10 (15A), in the Battery Junction Box - replace if defective. Check horn operation.

** Check Horn Relay (also in the Battery Junction Box) - remove the relay, give it a gentle tap, and plug back in. Check horn operation.

If all the above prove ok, then the fault lies in your steering wheel/horn switch assembly.


Cheers,

I have a 2003 jeep liberty and the horn works, but sounds awful. Like it only has half its output. Remote as well as manual horn sounds like that


you either have 2 horns (a hi note and a low note) and one is defective or you have one horn that is going bad. check possible bad ground also

Horn doesn't work - just had new battery installed. Could they not have replaced connection?


no. a horn will not be directly associated with a battery, if so you would have other components within the car that were not working.
I would suspect a horn problem itself or one of the electrical components

Having problem with horn. No horn.Fuse and relay good.


get two seperate wires and connect it to terminals of the horn then connect it directly to the battery and see if it will work. if not, then your horn is busted.

1994 vitar 1.6 Horn problem.


From memory, the horn circuit is actually completed by the steering shaft and in the engine bay there is a coupling, and looping from one side of the coupling to the other is a wire - check that this wire is in good condition. My next piece of advice would be to remove the steering wheel and check the condition of both the spring pin and the brass ring it rubs on.

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.
