Relace the horn as the inside workings are rusted out. A higher fuse will only burn the wiring harness

SOURCE: 2000 BMW 323i Check Engine Light Problem-10 codes!!! Help!

I would first check for a vacuum leak. Common areas of intake leaks are: 1. The crankcase vent valve located under the intake. 2.Check the intake boot at the throttle housing. You will find that there is an elbow where a small hose goes to your idle valve. Using your hand feel in the elbow area for a hole in the rubber. Your tech can use brake cleaner and spray the intake to check for leaks or use a smoke tester. 3.Possible failing Mass Air Meter.At idle, in park, and a/c not on the meter reading should be appr. 18-22 hz

SOURCE: loss of all power (total loss of accelerator ]) lots of management lights during driving

The purge valve is right underneath the intake manifold, it the valve that has a hard plastic hose attached to it that runs back towards the fuel tank. But I don't think that is it. I had the same problem and I changed the MAP thermostat, and the leak detection pump. Here are the codes from the OBD27cc DMTL leakage279b Thermostat map cooling

most new BMW's the fuse block is located behind the glove box. There should be a pair of twist plastic fastners at the back of the glove box, twist and remove the plate and you should find the fuse box and fuse locater list.

The horn is not working over an year and half and changed the relay what next??t


Should have a fuse box under drivers side dash and a fuse box under the hood. I think the horn fuse is under the dash on drivers side. usually 10 amp. I would get a test light and a friend and have the friend push the horn while i held the test light on the horn connector wires. It has two wires a voltage and a ground. If fuse is good but still no power at the horn then check the switch in the steering wheel. You could have a bad "clock spring" or steering wheel switch.

My radio stopped working on my e46


Just reset the power and programming to it to fix the issue. Remove the red lead from your battery then reinstall it a few seconds later. You will notice that the radio works again! If not, your radio fuse is blown.

Horn do not work


If the horn doesn't sound, check the horn fuse in the power distribution center located in the engine compartment. If the fuse is blown, replace it and retest. If it blows again, there is short circuit in the horn, or wiring between horn and fuse block.

Horn is located under vehicle on the front side of the vehicle between fender and front bumper.

My horn is not working on my 1994 bmw m3, i have looked under the bonet but i cant find the horn, any ideas where is is ?


hi Colin I had the problem on my 95 M3 Convertible. The 2 horns are located at the front behind the kidney shaped grills. First off check the fuse if its ok then,
Unplug the electrical conector and press the horn on the steering wheel. If you hear a click from the relay thats great, if it still don't work they are useless and need to be replaced. You will need 2 aftermarket ones high and low tone. It will be worth it checking the supply to the existing horns at some point, just connect the car horn to the battery via cable if the horn is ok it will sound. By doing these simple steps you should eliminate the fault. Cheers Hope this helps English John

Replaced relays and ckecked fuses horn not working 1996explorer


with the horn you can run a wire from the battery to the horn to check it if that dosent work then it is probably the contact wire inside the steering column, I cant remember the name of the part but this should fix the horn and cruise problem.
