Question about 1999 Buick LeSabre
How to repair horn
Posted by Anonymous on
Unplug the horns, there should be a tenor and an alto. generally behind the grille.if you have an airbag take off the battery cables at the battery wait 5 min.the power supply must have time to lose its power. take apart the steeringwheel and remove it. if you havent seen anything wrong yet, the hornbrush is getting an incorrect path to ground. normally the centershaft of the column is where it gets a ground. since your car is aged, look for stuck switch, missing spring , broken plastic pieces, etc. in the event you had an airbag in step 2, there may be some kind of clockspring issue. tsb's are important and kept up by gm for this because an airbag is a supplemental restraint. tsb info and recall info is free at the public library. the horn power and ground wires would plug into the clockspring from below. the hornswitch(es) would plug into the clocksping from above it. switches can be tested with an ohmmeter but other tests often require specific tools to simulate the clockspring upon its removal during testing. if your schematic shows a relay, and the switches arent causing it, the relay could be stuck. since this is a 99 vehicle you should have no trouble getting a schematic at the library. since the horns are unplugged, you can drive to have it looked at as well
