98 Toyota 4Runner Horn malfunction

The horn for my 98 4Runner quit working. The fuse is good but I don't want to remove the steering wheel to check the spring because of the airbag. What are my other options?

Ducato 1996 horn push not working. How to remove steering wheel?


I would check to see if you are getting power to the horn itself before removing the steering wheel. Check for power at the horn using a 12V circuit light test or a multi meter. If you are not getting power to the horn ensure the fuse is not blown or the horn itself is not malfunctioning. I am not familiar enough with a Ducato to walk you through a steering wheel removal. I would start by disabling the airbag circuit before anything else to prevent injury. If in doubt leave that to a professional. Good Luck.

Horn just quit working.


Do you get a click when you press the button? The relay should be audibly clicking if it's working.
If it is clicking then I'd check the horn itself, might be bad or have loose connection. If no clicking sound at all then I'd suspect bad relay or fuse (if it has a dedicated one), also possibly bad switch.

Horn does not work


THE HORN MAY BE BAD. HORN FAIL FROM AGE & LONG PERIODS OF NON USE. TRY PUTTING BATTERY POWER RIGHT TO THE HORN. IF NO SOUND OR VERY POOR RESPONSE, GET A NEW HORN. IF IT SOUNDS LIKE A HORN, CHECK THE HORN FUSE WITH A TESTER, " THERE SHOULD BE POWER ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FUSE. IF THE FUSE IS GOOD, PULL THE STEERING WHEEL, THERE MAY BE A WORN BRASS CONTACT STICKING UP. PUT A WIRE FROM THAT CONTACT TO SOME METAL UNDER THE DASH, IF THE HORN WORKS YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK ON THAT CONTACT OR MAYBE THE HORN BUTTON ON THE STEERING WHEEL

The HORN Is a GROUND CONTROLLED BUTTON you need to FIRST Check under CENTER STEERING WHEEL Cover to see if it has a Bad Commectiot, After Asuring this there Is c CLOCK Spring UNDER Steering Wheel that is Fairly Common for Failing.

The FOB / Remote Utilizes a Different Part of the Curcuit to Activate Horn, I Hope this Helps you With your Problem as Im Sure of All that I Advised. Remember to RATE ME !!

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.

1999 toyota corolla Horn doesn't work.


Usually the wire from the steering wheel is Green w/Red and the wire to the horn from the fuse box is White. There is only one fuse, sometimes shared with the emergency lights. Check to see if there is power to the horn itself with a volt meter.
