In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

Check the fuse, relay first and then check the connection to the horn. The connection to the horn is subject to corrosion and the ground may have gone bad. Once the fuse, relay and wire has been addressed with no signs of failure, I'ld check the horn button last. replace the horn button if the horn pad fail's. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

My 2005 Kia Rio horn is not working. Occasionally it will work but never when I need it to, like for an inspection. It is not the fuse.


they are not very good these modern horns ,they stick up so what i do is i find the horn behind the front bumper then i oil the vibrating bit on the front with engine oil leave to soak in for a day or so then assistant holds horn on and i tap it with a small hammer works most of the time

Horn on kia rio not working


It sound like the horn is the problem. You may need to purchase a new horn located in the front grill somewhere. I hope this helps.
