The circuits are separate, sounds like there is a short inside the wiring harness that is for the headlights and the horn. I would inspect it and try to find the source. Was anything done to the car before this happened, were different headlight lamps installed that use more wattage then stock lamps?

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.

2000 saturn sedan horn will honk when key is removed from ignition. When horn relay is removed, headlights stay on. Also intermittent issues with car starting up, will turn over but not start, also key...


Possible bad ignition switch. Security is partly ignition as well as headlights r part of security all tied to ignition.

Should be looked at by certified mechanic. Not hard, but not easy fix either.

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.

Sounds like you have a security system that is active. May not be answer for headlights though unless they have somehow been tied into the system

My horn used to honk when I locked my 1999 Jeep with the remote


If you have your owner's manual, there is a section that will tell you the exact sequence to press to enable/disable the horn bonk. It has three settings, chirp, honk, and off. The chirp is a really quick chirp of the horn. Honk is a longer honk. Off seems to be what you've set.

I hope this helps.

1992 Dodge Ram 50: Horn honks all by itself.


Check the horn actuating contact at the centre of the steering wheel. It may be damaged or mis-aligned.
Also check the carbon contact that runs on the slip ring under the steering wheel (associated with steering wheel horn actuate switch) It may be damaged or mis-aligned.

If none of the above are faulty, you should look for a possible intermittent short to ground on the horn actuation control wiring.

Lights flickering, horn honking, wipers moving while driving


Sounds like a bad body control module. Take it to the dealer to have them check and confirm.

2004 yukon horn problem


obviously there is a short in the system probably in the wiring and likely it is exposed wiring. Motion,moisture, and heat would then effect the wiring and cause it too short out at different times and for varied lengths of times. driving your car would cause it to get hot under the hood, so after awhile the wiring shorts and your horn honks. Turning on and off the system causes motion and if it is stuck in a particular position when it shorts than the horn continues to honk
