Check the fuse first. should be in the drivers footwell. Make sure that it is not blown. 90% of the time fuse will just blow due to high resistance from one of the horns. There is a high and low horn often it requires to replace one and try the horn and see if it blows. Then replace the horn that blows the fuse.

Car horn wont work. Dont hear the relay clicking. Does anyone have any suggestions?


If the fuse blew, most likely the new one you installed also blew. Check it again. You have a short somewhere. Double check all the wires you did while installing the horn button.

My 1998 sunfire's horn is not working. I hear clicking when I press on it. Any ideas on what the problem could be?


The clicking if heard under the hood it is the horn relay. So, either the connectors on the horn(s) are loose or the horn(s) are bad.

2005 sierra horns stopped working. I hear a click at the fuse box under the hood when i press horn. I know horns are good as i wired them direct. is there another fuse somewhere other than in the fuse box...


The click you hear is the horn relay -- this likely has either dirty / corroded connections or burned contacts inside the relay. If cleaning all relevant connections doesn't solve the problem, replace the relay. You can find the realy by having someone push the horn button while you track down the click.

Horn not working. When depressing the horn button on the steering wheel, only "clicking" sound is heard near the front passenger side. Checked the fuse and turned out to be unbroken. What's next?...


The clicking you hear is the horn relay working.
I would locate the horn and insure the wiring is intact and the horn has a good solid ground.
Then while someone is pressing the horn button measure the voltage at the wire that attaches to the horn to ground. If you get 12v or more the horn is bad. If you don't get any voltage replace the relay

Horn would not work 3 months ago on Dodge Neon rt 2001; problem was intermittent so shop replaced horn 2 different times and it still had the problem. Took it to dealer and by then locks weren't working....


Lets try step by step heck $600 you re-run a new horn. Open your hood, and take the fuse/relay box cover off. Press your horn listen for the relay to click in the box if the relay does not click then it is not triggering. take a paperclip and pull the horn relay and jumper 30 and 87 as seen on the bottom of the relay in its corresponding spots in the panel. Your horn should sound. The last time i ran across this problem was the steering coulmn did not have an adequate ground, checking that could be a simple check of jumper cable to the metal of the column and the battery ground.

The horn on my 04 mitsubishi endeavor went out and also noticed at the same time the alarm on my lock n unlock remote doesn't work. How do i fix the problem?


Standing out side the car, reach in and push the horn pad. Do you hear a click under the hood?

If not, check your fuse. If the fuse is good, check the relay.

If you do hear the click, your horns have likely failed. You can check for 12 volts with a multimeter or test light on the horn wire when the pad is depressed to verify.
If the relay and fuse check out OK and you still do not have power at the horn wires, your pad may have failed or the wire has come loose from it. This is an airbag component and should not be disassembled without familiarity with airbag systems..

If you do have 12 volts at the wire with the pad depressed, replace your horns.

One horn is located below the drivers headlight.
The other horn is near the firewall on the passenger side.

Horn not working


Did it just stop working one day? A horn is mostly solid state and rarely just stops working. First place to check is the fuse panel. Make sure the fuses are good. If the fuse is good, you may have a bad relay. To test that, get a volt meter or test light and connect it to the two leads going to the horn. (the horn will usually be in the front of the car, behind the bumper or inside the wheel well. Get under the car and look up inside the front. It should be in there somewhere). When you have the test light on the leads, turn the key on (not th engine) and have someone depress the horn button. If you get power to the two leads, it's time for a new horn. Good luck.

2004 Hyundia Elantra. My horn does not work either.


if i'm looking at the right diagram, the horn-a/c fuse & horn relay is in the underhood fusebox. if your
a/c clutch is working then you have power there. short of diving in with a multimeter or computer-safe testlight,
i would listen for the horn relay to click when the horn button is pressed. that circuit is hot all the time and the horn switch
grounds the horn relay. if you hear a click then most likely you have a bad horn/s. if you don't hear a click then you have a
bad horn switch or bad clockspring in the steering column. and .... there's always the possibility of just having a bad
connection somewhere in that circuit. if you see another relay with the same part number as the horn relay,
try swapping relays. good luck ........
