Question about 1996 Chevrolet Corvette

1 Answer

Horn stopped working.

I have a 1996 Corvette Collectors Edition. Everything works great except the horn. When press the horn button I can hear a faint click, but no horn. Where the heck is the horn relay or could it be something else?

Thank You,

Mike

    The click is likely the relay...likely the horn died. have someone try to blow the horn while you find the clicking relay.

If u hear a click that is the realy, so it would not be the problem, most likely the horn is burned out.

It's looking like the horn press is not completing the circuit. Either that, ir the wiring is open circuit somewhere.

I have a 1996 nissan pickup truck my horn does not work relay is good and so are the fuses


The horn button makes ground to operate the relay. If you hear the relay clicking but the horn doesn't sound, then the horn itself is faulty. If you don't hear the relay click, then the horn button in the steering wheel or the wiring going to it is suspect.

My 2001 chevy cavalier horn stopped working it would work when the car was off now it stopped completely what do u think it is ?


If you hear a click from the area of the glove box when you press the horn pad on the steering column, then the horn buttons and relay are working and the problem is most likely the horn itself. Unfortunately, the horn buttons in the steering pad are usually the issue. Replacement is tricky since you are working near the airbag. It is easier to find the horn wire at the base of the steering column and redirect it to a horn button you can buy at any auto parts store and fasten to dash next to the driver.

My horn does not work anymore. Please help


things to check. fuse,horn relay,horn button and then the horn itself. by pressing on the horn button with the car off you should hear a click everytime you press the button. that would be the relay working. if you hear this then either the horn itself is bad or disconnected.

I just bought a 2000 Saturn SL 4-dr sedan. It's in great shape, but the horn doesn't work and the dashboard light don't work. Is this a simple fix with replacing the fuses or dash light or is it a little...


Check fuse for horn and for dash lights. If the interior lights work then suspect dimmer switch for the dash lights. If you press the horn button do you hear a click under the hood or inside the car? If you do not then the fuse is blown and if the fuse is good then the relay may be suspected bad. If the fuse is good and the relay clicks then suspect the horn to be bad. If fuse is blown and you put a new one in and you push the horn and the fuse blows again, then disconnect the horn before replacing the fuse again. Then push the horn button and see if you hear the relay click if you hear a click the the horn is bad or wiring butmost likely the horn. If you have the horn unplugged and the fuse is good and you push thee horn button and no relay click suspect the horn button to be bad. Hope this helps.

Horn Doesn't Work on 1996 Chevy Cavalier


If the horn was very faint then it probably went bad. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I take it your fuse panel doesn't have a diagram on it or you don't have the owner's manual?

1985 corvette horns...


Have you tried replacing the horns themselves? Have you checked all the fuses relating to the horns? Relay? Maybe its the horn button itself? Hope this helps.

Probably the switch in the steering wheel, or fuse, but usually horn fuse works other things too such as cig lighter or radio. If everything else is working fine, then to troubleshoot you'll need a testlight. I would start with the wiring harness where the steering collumn plugs in and decipher which wire is the horn wire. Put the test light clip on +power, then check the wires on the collumn side one by one, pushing the horn button on each one. The horn switch is the wire that makes the light blink when you push the button. If you try all the wires and none make the light blink, then its probably a problem with the horn switch in the s. wheel. Does it have an after market steering wheel? Because aftermarket wheels often have crappy horn switches in them. Also could be a horn relay if it has one. If you listen carfully while pushing the horn, you should hear the relay faint clicking. If you hear this, then the switch is working, but the relay might not be. Follow the sound to find it if you hear it. Test all sides of the relay with your light. Should get power constant on one term, and the other two should light when the horn button is pushed. Hope this helps. Cheers.
