Sounds like it is getting power, but does not have a good earth connection.

Horn does not hoot


Have someone listen under the hood for the sound of a clicking relay as someone actuates the horn ring. Remember if the horn does blow you might scare the listener!!!

If no click check for the under hood relay. If relay not activating check the horn ring. Some times adjacent relays have same pin out/part number. Swap relay and try. Many of the cars use a "clock spring" design on the wheel. Problem air bag circuit makes it difficult to service. Check to make sure all other services are working attached to the wheel (Speed control, radio,etc). If clock spring is failing eventually other circuits would be affected.

If you have key-less entry and have a horn beep confirmation try the FOB. No beep than maybe horn clock spring OK! In no horn beep confirmation try the panic on the FOB. That should make a little noise, and if nothing else you can check your lights.
Ck the fuse if OK
Hot wire horn if still no horn
Replace Horn

Repair horn on 2009 honda civic


With the key on but not the engine, press the horn ring a listen for a click, that click is a horn relay. You may need someone to listed under the hood for you, If you don't hear the click, take the covers off the fuse box and see if there is a diagram for the relays that shows a horn relay. While you are checking, look for a fuse for the horn. In rare cases it could be the horn ring or the clock spring.

How do I repair horn in the steering column


What is the problem with the horn. Check Fuse for Horn. Check Horn it is located under the bonnet. Near the front grill of the car. Check relay for horn most likely also located somewhere in engine compartment in a plastic box compartment with numerous relays. If horn not sounding should hear relay click when horn button pressed.
If horn is getting voltage at horn plug (positively switched horn design) then horn may need replacing.If negatively switched then horn connects to body of car when button pressed and other side of circuit has Plus 12 volts always on it.

Yes i have a 97 honda accord and my horn wont does not work when i try to use it it makes a clicking sound can you plz tell me what is wron g


It sounds like the horn relay is working properly thats what you hear clicking. Use a test light to make sure you are getting power and ground to the horn itself. If you are getting power and ground then the horn assembly is bad and needs replaced.

I have a 1995 chevy tahoe, the horn will not make a sound you can press on the horn and feel it click but no sound. Is this something i can personally repair myself and how do i do that?


Check for voltage to the horn either while someone else presses the horn button, or by using a test light. You should get 12V between the horn wire and a known good ground. If you're getting 12V at the horn wire, then you probably need to replace the horn. If you don't get 12V when the horn is applied, then it is likely that the horn relay needs to be replaced.

The horn just makes a clicking sound which sounds like its coming from the glovebox?


The clicking sound is probably the horn relay. Check for power at the horn wire when button depressed and that the horn is grounded. If everything checks out ok replace horn with known good part.

My horn sis not working. There was trouble with my car alarm months ago and the repairman removed the after market alarm. However, my car failed inspection today because the horn will click but does not...


Yes, if a car doesn't have a working horn, it would, in most if not all states fail a safety inspection.
If you hear a click, then it could be the relay clicking or the horn trying to operate. Likely, it's just a bad horn or a bad ground connection at the horn relay.

I would take the vehicle back to the repairman and ask about the horn and repairing it, or have the inspector who failed it repair it for you.

Horns go bad on cars due to corrosion or non use over time. I've had a few go bad on motorcycles which were even stored in a garage. Opened one up one time and found rust on the contacts that made it not work or oscillate to make a sound that is audible.

I think that you could locate the horn, and see if all of the wires are physically there, and try a test light to ground it out, as horns should always have power (as long as the battery is charged up) whether or not the ignition is on.

If you ground out one or the other terminals with a test light, at the horn, then it should beep.
If not, then the horn itself is bad.

Replace with new.
It is really that simple.

I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville that wasn't used for a while and the horn went bad on it and it was replaced as one of the items required for Pennsylvania State Inspection.

My 2002 cadillac escalade horn doesnt work.


The click sound is the horn relay operating, it could be a blown fuse, a bad horn relay, a bad horn, or a bad ground at the horn.

Horn replacment


look under the dash at the fuse panel and locate the relay for the horn... replace it. quick way to tell which one it is is put your finger on each relay as you press the horn... the one that you can feel clicking is the one to replace.
