The power feed to the horn does not depend on the ignition switch, so engine on or off should not make a difference. Try the horn when turning the steering wheel, the clockspring could be the problem.

SOURCE: Horn wont work

If you are facing the front of the jeep. It is on your left, on the fender well. Yes, you do have a fuse under the dash. The fuse panel should be marked on what fuse is it.

Go to the horn under your hood, check it for any thing wrong, then follow the power wire and follow it back to your steering wheal. this is where your problem is you just have to find out where the short is.

The horn does not work. it used to work but only when you pressed realy realy hard. and now it wont work.


Unfortunately it sounds like your horn switch has gone out and if you have air bags it can be tricky to disassemble your steering column to replace the switch.

If you don't have a shop manual for your Jeep, I would suggest you join the JeepForum.com and ask start a thread asking for the instructions for your make, model and year of vehicle. I have the shop manual for a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee if that will be of help.

The light work on the jeep the horn works, I put the vechicle in park turn the key and it wont start, The the key is turn it make a clicking sound


this sounds like a low battery problem ... the horn and lights do not take much energy to turn on, but starting the engine takes a lot of power. Try jumping the Jeep with another car, or a battery jump pack (available at any auto-parts store). If the engine kicks over and starts, then leave your Jeep running in park for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes of running, turn the Jeep off and then try to start it again with no jump -- if it starts, you had a low battery, but the issue is probably solved (running the engine recharges the battery). If, after you have had the car running for 15 minutes and turn it off, it does not start on its own, you probably need a new battery (and you should have your electrical system checked as you might have a bad alternator that is not charging your battery). Sears Auto Canter has a great piece of equipment that can test your battery, and your entire electrical system (including the alternator) in just a few minutes. I recommend that you take your Jeep to a Sears Auto Center and have it checked, whether or not the jump worked because their system can make sure that there is not a slow drain on the battery (due to a loose connection or something like that) which would cause you to have the same problem again.

Horn not working. Fuse is good. 2005 Jeep Wrangler. How do you remove the rubber cover on the sterring wheel to get at the horn.


May be bad horn. Get a 12 volt test light or multi-meter and attach to the horn wire at the horn. Have a helper press the horn. If you have 12 volts when it is pressed, horn itself is bad. Otherwise, may be bad horn relay. Horn cover should pull off.

Horn wont work on 1989 jeep wrangler


First, run a direct hotwire to the horn. If it fails to work, replace it. if it does work, check that the relay is working. If both horn and relay are good, likely the horn connection inside the steering wheel has gone bad. That requires removing the horn pad from the wheel and possibly going deeper into the top of the wheel to find the problem. (most often you won't need to go that far though)
