They mixed up the light wiring with the horn wiring, they're the same connector. lol !!! I'm sure you got it fixed already.

Make my horn honk


I looked at info for a Silverado 1500. Use a test light to check for voltage at horn fuse in under hood fuse box. According to this diagram, the horn relay has to be energized. Have a helper hit the horn switch when you check voltage at horn fuse. If hot, have to check wiring circuit to horn. In the diagram, dark green wire is voltage and black wire is ground. You could actually use jumper wires from battery for voltage and ground to horn, for testing.

Horn honks when try to start


honking horn is indicative of damage to the alarm and immobiliser. The 'only starts with headlights on' is indicative of damaged wiring at the front end caused by the deer. Look for disconnected wires, or wires where the insulation has been stripped away and is earthing to the bodywork.

2009 GMC Acadia; why does honking my horn make the headlight come back on?


I am assuming the light is in close proximity to the horn and the light has a poor wiring connection either feed or ground. check for loose or corroded connection. The vibration from the horn has "jiggled" the connection.

Horn honks when unlocking doors.


If your vehicle is equipped with a factory keyless entry system and you have the owner's manual, there should be a section in the manual describing how to change your options with your system. But if you have an aftermarket system, which I am thinking this the case, you will have to manually go into your dash under your steering wheel and cut the wire going to your horn from the security system. Once you have accessed your wiring underneath your steering wheel, there is a main harness with a bunch of wires going to the steering wheel. In this harness you will find a DARK GREEN/VIOLET small gauge wire and you should see another wire tapping into it probably coming from the security module. Just cut it off but leave the DARK GREEN/VIOLET untouched and this will eliminate the horn honks.

Horn honks when turning, randomly


sounds like a electrical problem. When you turn it is completing the circuit some how, sounds like wires are touching each other and making the horn honk when turning. easiest thing is remove the fuse if possible.

97 Jetta GLS - Horn honks when I turn the wheel to the left


sounds like there is something in the wrong place in the horn button. it makes contact when you turn left just as if you had pushed the horn button. i wonder does your airbag light ever come on, i mean not just in the startup sequence, that's normal. probably you need to take the horn button part of the steering wheel apart and get things back in the right place or maybe replace some parts, but because of the airbag being right there too it's not something i would recommend that you do yourself. accidentally setting off an airbag is not a good thing.
