How do i fix the horn in my 2010 jeep wrangler sport unlimited? it does not work


the horn button is dead< and the sounds from horn via the antithieft system is dead too? (mine are defeated on fob clicks, by me.,,)

on my car only the driver can honk. horn.



does car run perfect (other shoe drops) Head lights. not dim

cluster battery lamp not showing charge system failure?

first check fuses , the one labeled horn is top choice.

on mine, its fuse m22 and m23

in the underhood.

Totally Integrated Power Module oi TIPM



did you sCAn it after fuse, if the PCM sees errors to the TIPM above

that can in fact make lots of things fail. so Scanning is always #2.

if you see comm errors,. you will not fix this. get it serviced.

or reset every thing and pray.



my wranger has 2 horns, so its near impossible for both to fail .

(actual horn) but there are many submodels of wrangler and was not stated in your post which one, mines an X.body 2 door.





you can do 2 things, to cars, gue$$ or tests. and danger (air bags)

what do you want to do?

you dont need us to guess. right? our guess is as good as dice roll.

use a voltmeter (walfart $10)

touch the black meter lead to base, of horn (this is called ground)

then the other meter red lead to the horn pin.

honk the horn. if its not 12vdc now, then the problem is up stream.

move the black lead to the car body and keep red same.

and bot 12v now? yes, then the horn base is rusting clean it.

fixed now.

ok got 0v, again? its upstream. problem .



the horn systems are now complex , no more just 3 parts.

switch, relay and horn. ,

it now is digitally controlled. , that is correct.

the horn switch is a digital. device. ONLY.

Flow of logic:

the horn switch closes.

the 2 wire close and goes to the dash cluster controller. (brain)

this brain sees the switch closes and sends a CAN-buss network

serial command (called comms) to the TIPM

the TIPM then sends 12vdc to the horns, via fuse 23.

m22 is right

m23 is left horn fuses





on mine the relay can not be changed,

open the TIMP box, mine is hinged to front, dumb idea if ever.

the under that lid are all fuses names and relay names.

the words like like micky mouse wrote them , weak, and blurry.

on mine, there is no horn relay. (must be a high power transistor driver in the TIPM electronics board.



so now lets play dealer or ASE shop. just one example.

he sees all horns dead, full time. all ways from sunday.

he checks fuse m22, m23.

when honking, the horns do not get 12vdc to them.

he hot wires one horn (disonnected) it honks loudly.

ok horn is good.



he then checks with his scan tool that the horn switch is in fact working and sees the CAN-buss sends out the command.

to honk, it does.

but why does it not honk, ?

he then checks TIPM programming to make sure its not scrambled.

it\'s not, so the TIPM is bad.

he pulls battery neg (oops lost nav and radio codes ! read FSM on this)

and then removes the TIPM and puts it back reseating it.

and retests. it fails. (hope and luck can happen)

but it didnt.

the TIPM is bad.





how is that.?

First use a battery charger to charge the battery, instead of a jump start. Second, with a complete dead battery you may want to pull the connection for the horn under the hood till the battery is completely charged.

2009 pontiac montana won't start and the horn honks


Have a load test done on the battery as what you have said points top a bad battery cell. With the horn working the indication is that the voltage in the battery falls below that required for the alarm to work so it is reading it as someone stealing the battery and when you release the key the battery voltage is sufficient to turn the alarm back off.

A yellow light just came on on my 2008 Impala. Its a circle with an exclamation mark. What does it mean?


Tire pressure monitoring system. Start by checking your tire pressure and set to what the sticker on the drivers side door frame indicates. If this does not turn the light off you will have to re-learn the sensors to the vehicle. This is done by:
reset the tire pressure monitoring system, to do so, you need to get your key fob, and put your ignition key in the ignition, turn it to the accesories position, and simultaneously press the lock and unlock buttons on the key fob. hold them until the car honks the horn.

then take something to let out air in the tires, you need to start with the left front then go to the right front, then the right rear, then the left rear.

start at the left front, drop the pressure in the tire until the horn beeps, -usually takes 8 seconds or so. then repeat on the other tires in the order above.

After you finish with the final tire, the horn will honk again, then you know your done. usually honks 2 times.

and then you can turn the key off, and set your tire pressures.

I have just installed a new battery in a 2004 focus and now the alarm system keeps going off what do you do? Tried diconneting and then reconnting still the system continues to go off


If you have a remote, lock then unlock the doors using the remote. That should stop the horn. If that doesn't work, use the ignition key in the driver's door lock and turn the key all the way to the left, then all the way to the right. Of course, this all has to be done with the battery connected, and the horn honking the whole time. If none of this works, look for a reset button under the driver side dash, or it may be a toggle switch. With the key in the on position. push and hold the button until you hear a beep from the alarm. On some cars, the reset button is behind the driver side kick panel.

I can not get into my 2005 mini cooper the key does not work o believe the battery is dead


Hi. Try to test the battery using a voltmeter. It might not be the battery that is having the problem. You can also test it by honking your horn if nothing comes up then its the best way to start the troubleshooting by replacing the battery or have it recharged.

My horn used to honk when I locked my 1999 Jeep with the remote


If you have your owner's manual, there is a section that will tell you the exact sequence to press to enable/disable the horn bonk. It has three settings, chirp, honk, and off. The chirp is a really quick chirp of the horn. Honk is a longer honk. Off seems to be what you've set.

I hope this helps.

My battery is dead and my horn keeps honking and wont let it take a jump start how do I get the horn to stop


Try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes. then when you reconnect the battery lock and unlock the drivers door with the key, door closed. this will on some models deactivate the anti theft system. but it must be done with the hood closed and all the doors closed and from outside with the key. mike
