You would need to check the circuits at the relay.
The horn pad grounds the relay to make the horn blow.
You should have power at the relay, and a ground from the horn pad when it is pressed. The third wire goes to the horns.

SOURCE: horn doesnt work but fuses and relay are good

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

SOURCE: My horn quit working but the relay and fuse are

It sounds like the switch itself, on the steering wheel, are not making contact. I'm guessing that if you can remove the front part of the steering wheel you could check and clean the contacts and also give you a chance to test the horn, while you are in there.

How do I fix a horn that will not work


The sound that comes out is simply the last thing in a chain of events, and all the links have to work. To troubleshoot, start at the first step. Does the horn button make a circuit?\
Next, check in the fuse box. There should be a horn relay. Does it click when somebody presses the horn button?
Now, check the actual horn. Does it get power when the relay clicks? If all of the steps check out ok, then replace the horn. If they don't, then fix the thing that's not working and re-test.

Where is the turn signal relay on a 2004 Malibu lt, and do you know what would cause the front turn signal lites to work then not work then work then not work?


There isn't one. Since you already did the fuses. If your up to it. Take the turn signal switch out. Take it apart and fix it, the inside of it.. You need a soldering gun and solder. There is only one thing that may op out. The horn spring. Plus the button for the horn will drop,out. Just look at the contacts and solder them up( divots have to be filled in). Plastic will melt. just watch. it works. Fixed a lot of them. You can do it...You already passed the first step..

Bought an 2004 honda accord and the horn does not work. What is the procedure for repairing this issue?


simple circuit, but can be hard if problem is switch in steering wheel. First check fuse and relay at fuse box. relay should click when horn button on wheel is pushed. If relay doesn't click, either button or relay is bad. If relay clicks, test for voltage at horn. You can use a simple test light available at the auto parts store if you don't have a voltmeter. If there is voltage at the horn, replace horn.
If relay does not click, replace relay to see if that fixes your problem. If new relay doesn't fix, you have a bad switch in the steering wheel or possibly bad wiring. cannot help you with switch as it's different on every car. any questions--let me know.

Horn on my 2004 Chevrolet Malibu won't work. Fuse is good and relay is working properly. Where is the actual horn?


If its like my 99 Chevy Lumina, its behind the front bumper, passenger side. You'll have to take the whole front bumper off. Stupid I know. But thats how Chevy made them.

Horn


No the Chevy Malibu is not made by Kia!
I think you mean horn relay
I would try a new relay it is possible that the relay is defective and that's why it was removed
here is how the horn circuit works
The body control module (BCM) controls the horn relay by grounding the control circuit of the horn relay coil. When the horn relay coil is grounded, the horn relay contacts close, applying voltage to the horn via the horn supply voltage circuit.
if the horn relay does not fix your concern you may need to take it to a shop and check for any BCM fault codes
and you are correct having no horn is a SAFETY ISSUE
that car should have NEVER PASSED A SAFETY WITHOUT A HORN
hope this helps good luck and I hope the relay fixs it because a BCM is costly
