    Thanks, for the tip but the bigger problem is the car is not charging. I have put and new alternator, voltage regulator, and horn relay. I don't know to much about cars I'm trying to learn would you know what would be stopping it from charging? It seems to me from the alternator to the battery in between the two something is stopping the charge.
    Thanks for all the help I love learning about this old beauty!

the horn switch in the steering wheel could be defective or the slip ring in the steering wheel itself.

there is a carbon brush there that could have worn out.

The problem sounds like it was the battery the whole time. Your battery can have all the volts in the world but if it does not produce enough amperage it will not turn the starter over. This sounds like a dead cell issue. To be sure, Disconnect the Negative battery terminal and connect the vehicle for jumping but put the ground cable someplace on the block. Start the vehicle and disconnect the jumper cables. If the vehicle continues running the Alternator is doing it's job and you need to replace your battery. Another way to check for a dead cell in the battery is to get a cell tester from Walmart or an auto parts store and test each cell. Also you could take the battery to the Auto Parts store and ask them to test it. They will test for charge and Load capacity.

SOURCE: horn does not work, horn

if you take a test light and test all the fuses in the fuse box and if they are good then when pushing on the horn button you can usually hear the horn relay working(click).if it does then you need to check the horn itself.take a wire and run it from the battery positive cable and connect it to were the horn wire connects to the horn,it should blow(make sure of a good connection),if it does then it could be a dirty connection at the horn.if it doesn`t blow then the horn needs replacing.you can also use the test light and test for power at the horn wire at the horn itself to see if the horn is being feed power from the horn button to the horn.

Have you checked the fuel filter? It may not be getting fuel. Had an experience with this - vehicle was fine but shut it off and it wouldn't start. No problems before but the fuel filter went fast.

Which fuse on an 83 plymouth voyager can be pulled to shut off the horn


Most fuse boxes are labeled, but sounds like yours is not...You can also unplug the wire connection that directly connects to the horn...(usually 2 horns, some have 4) this will give you the same effect. Hope this helps.

My horn went out


Check your fuses. If the fuse is good then you'll have to check for power at the horn itself. If you have power then use a 12 volt test light and check your ground circuit. Have smeone depress the horn switch with the test light hooked up to the power side of the circuit and also the ground side, if the light illuminates with the horn depressed then you have a bad horn assembly.

Hello, and thank you for choosing fixya.com. There could be a few reasons why your horn doesn't work. First, check the horn fuse in the fuse box (this should be located under or in the dash on the left or right side of the steering wheel. If the fuse is good, procede to check the horn relay (this could be under the dash or under the hood) check the owners manual, service repair manual, or your local auto parts dealer. If it is found that the relay is good as well, check all the wriring to the horn (usually mounted at the front of the vechicle under the hood. follow the wiring as best as you can checking that the connection are clean and secure. You can test the horn, by diconnecting the wires (if two are available) . With some spare wire, run one wire as a ground from the ground on the battery to the ground on the horn, do the same for the posotive. If the horn sound, it may just be an electrical issue at the back of the fuse box, or the wiring may be damaged and shorting out somewhere.

I hope this information has been helpful to you, and I agian thank you for choosing fixyou.com for helping you solve this matter. Let me know if I can be of more assitance.
