Question about 1999 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

Horn rarely works. It seems like the correct electrical contact is not working when the driver presses. Every once in a while, it can be "finessed" by pressing on the edge. I'm not sure how to remove the airbag so I can get a look at the horn switch.

Disconnect the battery and wait at least ten minutes before messing with the airbag,don't want the air bag going off while your working on it. behind the steering wheel you should see the bolts holding the air bag in place. once you get the screws off remember there is still a connector holding the airbag in place so disconnect it and you should be able to see your horn switch.

My horn won't work on my 2007 Uplander. Checked fuses, and wiring and everything is fine. What could it be?


This is caused by a loss of connection in the coiled ribbon contact under the steering wheel called the Clock Spring contact. Before you remove the steering wheel to replace this contact drum you MUST DISARM the Airbag system. Failure to disarm the system can result in serious injury or in rare cases *****.

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.

How to replace horn fuse in innova 2012 model


Go to the horn and have someone press the horn button, does the horn electrical connector get 12 volts to it with the button pressed? If yes the horn is defective, if no you have a defective ribbon contact clock spring contact under the steering wheel which is the most common problem.

I own a 96 ford escort, the horn doesn't work when you press on the center of the steeting wheel, you can hear electric contacts making noise but he horn doesn't work, i'm fairly sure it's not a fuse...


Before taking apart the steering wheel, I would run a power jumper to the horn to make sure it works, the horn may have done bad.

Hope this helps

Push on the horn and I here a ckicking under the glove box but the horn does not work


The clicking is the coil side of the horn relay....That pulls in the contact which carries the heavier currant needed for the horn operation.
To work on this fault you'll need an electrical test meter or light....
  • Locate the actual relay by having someone press the horn and NOT hold it down
  • The clicking will lead you to its position.
  • Unhook it from its bracket and with the meter check that the switching side of the relay is closing when the horn is pressed.
  • If not replace the relay.
  • If power is going across the switching side go to the connection on the horn at the front of the vehicle and check the power output there
  • If you have power there, check to make sure the earth contact to the body is intact.
  • The earth contact is usually through the horn button via a contactor on the steering wheel assembly.
  • I would think that that is fine as the relay is operating.
  • if all power is coming from the relay and the horn is grounded correctly, replace the actual horn.
Have a good honk best regards Johngee10

Peugeot 307 hooter works very rarely, seems to be a bad connection somewhere


this is a very common fault and you are right about it being a poor conection! the fault is on the horn contacts on the steering wheel. to do this you need to remove the air bag and this should only be done by a trained profesional as they contain an explosive charge!!
once this is off you just remove the 4 screws holding the horn switch, remove it and clean the contacts.

let me know if this helps
cheers

Constant horn blowing


Very possibly the horn relay. This is located in the left junction block ( fuse panel) on the left side of dash. Open driver door and you will see a panel cover on the end of dash. On the cover it should list the position of the relay which I believe is on the right of fuse panel. If you try the horn and it sticks on again, try tapping the relay, if stops then that is the problem.

1995 Prizm Horn Problem


keep the steering wheel in one spot, do not rotate,  check horn by pressing pad in different areas.  If it is intermittent then horn pad is concern.  If it works well trying slowly turning steering wheel while pressing horn pad if there is a point in turning the wheel where horn becomes inop, then the common fault is the horn contact ring inside of the steering column
