SOURCE: My 99 Toyota Avalon horn does not make any sound.

save yourself the hassle , buy yourself a momentary 12volt switch drill a nice clean hole on your driversside dash and re-wire your horn to it, all the screwing around you'll do to figure out why toyota makes cheesy horn contacts you could have your problem fixed..



on one side of the switch you should run a wire that is a 12volt switched +
on the other side I would run another side run a new power wire to your horn
leave your horns stock ground and just replace the HOTLINE ..

you could even go as far as installing a la cou ca racha horn to bring back that 70's Lowrider feel lol

SOURCE: 1985 Toyota Pickup Horn

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.

SOURCE: Would appreciate help for a Toyota Corolla 2007 non-working horn.

If the horn works with direct connection, and fuse, relay, and circuit breaker are all good, it's the switch in the steering wheel. If it is anything like the chrysler auto's, the switch and the air bag module is all one unit, can't replace just the switch, the whole thing, and it's about $700 to $800 for those units, at least it is here, and can only get them at a dealer.

SOURCE: 1989 toyota pickup horn not working, fuse is fine.

It may be the same horn, depends on the type of alarm you have. Does it sound the same???Disconnect the horn and jump the horn with 12V If it doesn't work then it is the horn. If it does than it is the switch or wiring.

SOURCE: The horn not workingI

The metal plate in reference above has small copper contacts. If they do not meet the horn will not work. We used a dremel on ALL of the contact point and it made no difference, the horn still only works about 5% of the time. After a whole lot of testing (I have the same issue with my 2000 Toyota Sienna) we found that the ground is weak, too weak for the relay most times. At this point I am going to run an alternate ground by "borrowing" the wire for the mute button for audio controls through the clock spring. The existing ground connects to the steering column. Before we discovered this I spent $285 on a new clock spring :(

My horn is only a high pitch. Whats wrong?


Assuming you have high and low horns, the low could have stopped working, or the one horn you have could be about to fail.
The horn uses a magnet to vibrate a plate to make the noise.
You could try a new replacement.

Horn on my 2003 monte carlo stopped working. The volume got weaker and weaker until finally no sound is made when you press the horn


do you hear a click sound from a relay when pressing on horn button? most likely is underhood. if so,locate the horn(s) and test voltage with a test light or DVOM at the horn + side. if both have voltage,check - side.(ground).if both are correct replace both horns.

Horn not working. Checked fuse its okay. Do I replace relay?


Before you change relay do this, take out the horn wires and attach a 12v bulb to it and press horn button.

Condition 1: Blub glows:
-----------------------------------
1. Re-attach the horn wires and look for a adjustment screw behind the horn. Ask someone to press horn button and using a screw driver, rotate this screw clock or anti-clock wise until you hear some sound. Fine adjust the screw for best sound. Most probably you will need to put cork in your ear to save your ear drums :P

2. Put some glue on this screw.

3. If still no sound, then horn is dead and you have to buy new horn.

Condition 2: Bulb does not glow:
-----------------------------------------------

1. Check using a bulb / multimeter at the contacts of relay if you are actually getting current in relay. Hear the click sound of relay on pressing horn button. If it has no life, then change it.

I have a 2001 stratus and the horn doesn't work. When I press the horn I hear a clicking sound. The fuse is OK, what's the problem


The clicking sound you are hearing is the horn relay engaging trying to supply power to your horn. Most likely horn itself needs to be replaced. Locate horn underneath in front near grill. With test light check for ground & with someone pushing on horn switch, check for positive. If you have good ground & power when pushing on horn switch need to replace horn.

1998 cadillac, the horn just went off 3am in the morning, would not stop..until I pushed on the steering wheel part of the horn..car was locked..I had to get out of bed to stop it! WHY WOULD IT JUST GO...


I have a 1977 Cadillac Seville and it does the same thing, and when the outside temperature drops below 65 degrees the horn will sound continuously until either the horn relay or the horn fuse is removed.

The problem is in the horn pad on the steering wheel, and the contact plates inside of the horn pad are too close together (a manufacturing defect) and when the temperature drops down to a certain degree then the horn pad will contract and cause the metal contact plates inside of the horn pad to touch and make contact, and it is same thing as if you were pushing on the horn pad.

I have also heard of the exact opposite happening and when the temperature gets too hot the horn pad will expand and cause the metal contact plates to touch and make contact and activating the horn.

Check the horn relay is ok,
Check the horn ground is ok.

Place a trouble light across the horn supply- when horn is pressed it should light up steady.
If it lights up, the voltage to the horn is ok -then a replacement horn should fix it.

Horn wont stop going off


There is a fuse which I have had to remove from my 2002 Montero Sport. It is under the driver side compartment in the fuse panel box near the driver side door. Once you remove the fuse box cover there is a diagram telling you which fuse to remove. Now, your truck will not pass inspection legally until this problem is fixed. There is a switch under the steering wheel cover which is either broken or stuck but with air bags I would not recommend attempting this yourself, but the fuse can be removed as a temporary fix. I hope this helped!
