The alarm sets but no horn sounds and flasher dont work every thing seems wired the way it should be key fobs work hear main box click and led lite works just no horn or flashers?


You just diagnosed the electrical short in the alarm system but now the question is where? Check the wiring at the main junctions since you have 2 problems at once. By the way the horn & flashers do work other than using the alarm, Right? If so start at the fuse box & trace the wiring where the alarm is spliced in.

Neighbor hooked the wrong terminals to a new battery, the horn sounded and he reconnected properly. Now it wont start.


check the main fuse in the engine bay fuse box its a big one 80 amp this will have blown. doing this can also blow the ecu. but you may be lucky. horn going off is the alarm so this may have a problem to so would check this out as well.

Horn does not work jeep liberty


The likely cause of this is a defective rotating printed circuit coiled contact under the steering wheel, it is referred to as the "clock-spring" contact coil. To replace it requires the very dangerous airbag system be disarmed and the steering wheel removed, it is directly under the wheel. Before replacing any parts have the problem diagnosed to confirmed my guess work.

I have a 2008 chrysler 300 and I installed an alarm system. I connected the factory horn to the alarm using a relay. I installed a relay under the hood and got the power from the battery the problem is...


you have either a blown fuse or the factory wire harness isnt connected to horn first check fuse owners manual will have location and description of fuses if ok retrace your steps when you hooked horn to new alarm you disconnected wire at horn or you cut the wire to access horn wiring

Horn works when you hit the alarm button but dont work when you hit the horn from the steering wheel


Check the fuses first, the alarm is likely wired in after the fuse for the horn switch on its own fuse. If it is not the fuse it is either the horn switch itself (inside the steering wheel) or the wiring. If the alarm was installed at the factory when the truck was made it is most likely a fuse, then the switch. If the alarm was installed aftermarket it is most likely a fuse, then the wiring where the alarm was spliced into the horn wire, then the switch. Get back to me if this doesn't help.

Battery


I've had this exact problem before when being jumped off. The fob DOES NOT make it stop. We removed the fuse that goes to the horn. As soon as your battery gets recharged from the alternator, the fob will work again and the alarm will quit sounding. The only pain about removing the fuse is that the cruise control will not work until you put it back.

Car alarm stopped working.. Car wont start


the jetta has a faulty alarm system from the factory i have been working on one in my shop. the alarm moddule is inside the dash behind the light switch and has a 10 pin connector and a 6 pin connector. this can be bypassed if you disconnect both connectors and jump the two large wire on the 6 pin connectors, these wires operate your starter. the car will start and run but your alarm will no longer be active. the door locks and everthing else will still work. the only issue i am having is the factory radio isn't working because it is controlled by the alarm. but worse case scenario i can use an aftermarket radio if need be.
