Know your car, read manual, find fuse that protects the horn circuit. know where the horn is physically located, do a visual check of its terminals and wires coming in. use multimeter(or a better option - test light) to see if there is any positive potential against the chassis coming in onto one of the terminals of the horn (could be just one and the other being chassis). In case of one visible terminal on the horn, there must be a relay that operates the horn circuit. Check all this and report back here. I am pretty positive you will fix your problem before then, if you do.

Where is horn located on 2003 chevy caviler


Horn(s) are typically located under the hood, behind and near the headlight assembly. It is not uncommon for a horn to stop working over time. It is also not unlikely that horn button in the steering column fails. To verify that the button is working, get the car to a very quiet location. Turn off all radios, blowers, etc. to make the car interior as quiet as possible. When you press the horn button, listen for a "click" noise from under the dashboard. This is the horn relay. If that happens, you know that the button(s) in the steering wheel are ok. If you don't hear the click, then the horn button or the horn relay may be the cause of the horn not working.

Horn no working , i need diafram


first run a live wire from the battery to the horn connection to see if the horn works,now some older cars have a permanant feed to the horn and then the return to the horn switch so have a look to see how many wires on the horn ,if two wires then one side of the horn to the + and the other to the earth - and see if it works

My horn doesn't work. The fuse is good and the relay clicks when I push the horn. I swapped the relay with the one next to it and got the same results. Where do I go from here. I have not yet found the...


you need to find the horn(usually behind the front body panels)as you face the car.possibly behind the grill.if the relay is clicking it sounds like the horn is no good and needs replacing.you may have to look up under the front of the car to find the horn.

Horn stopped working, fuse and relay is good


With test light check voltage at horn assembly on both wire's, could only have one, horn assembly itself could be ground, have some one press horn button while checking, if there is voltage replace horn assembly, if no voltage horn pad at streeing wheel bad. that's being fuse and replay are good.

I have a lincoln ls and my horn dont work but all the fuses are fine, I bought this car from an individual but I need to get it inspected


Could be bad horn or relay or the horn'button'.Start at the horn with a test light.Have someone push horn button and check for power at the horn.If no power then trace wires to relay,check for power cominginto relay.If power is going in but not out to horn relay is problem.etc. Some horns have a lttle knob you can turn to adjust them and get them working

2005 ford taurus horn just doesn't work. I've


The problem can be with the horn pad, the horn relay or the horn itself. Find your horn relay, it should be in the engine compartment fuse box. Remove the relay and test for power at the legs. there should be two legs that have power. If there is power there, take the cover off the relay and plug it back in. Squeez the relay points together and see if the horn works. If the horn still does not work, it is probably the horn itself. If it does work it is probably the horn pad, but you don't want to mess with that because of the air bag. Let a pro do it.

All of this is predicated on the fact that you have checked all the fuses.

Hope this helps
