First check fuse then relay. If trouble finding obtain repair manual.
Basic diagnostic method is to start at the horn(s). There should be two wires. One is negative the other positive. If connections good. You will need a voltage tester and a jumper lead. A simple 12 volt bulb can be used as a tester. Pull one of the horn wires and attach tester then attach other tester lead to negative. Test horn. If no indication repeat with other horn wire (don't confuse horn connections). If voltage present Horn defective. Next check for voltage at relay. If voltage in to relay but not out replace relay. If no voltage in to relay replace fuse. If still not found then problem is with horn switch or wires between.

Were to find horn fuse


different cars different places. look on back of fuse cover it is either on inside fuse box, or under hood fuse box. if the fuse is ok! check the relay for the horn in under hood fuse box. if that is good.disconnect wire from horn, run a wire from battery positive to the horn it self, if it works now, it is the horn relay or button in car. Good-Day!

I'm trying to find the fuse for my horn and car lighter looked in the fuse box but dont have it in there maybe another name or something


Looks like the horn is on a 15amp circuit - the fuse is marked HORN and its probably in the fuse box in the engine compartment.
The lighter may be on an accessory fuse.
If you have your owners manual look in the back of it.

Horn dosen't work


Check fuse. Usually located under the Steering wheel or under the hood. You will have to use the other side of the cover to determine which fuse controls the horn and see if the metal link is broken. If both are not blown its probably a short in the wire. If it randomly just happened then its a good first guess without knowing any further details.

Usually I check all my fuses any time I am looking for a specific one. Sometimes a random fuse can be the cause, and not the actual Horn fuse that is blown.

I have a 1995 Chevy S 10 and the horn does not work. I think my problem is under the dash. Are there any switches,relays, or breakers I need to be looking\r\nfor? I have traced from horn to fuse panel and...


The horn relay is in the fuse/relay box under the hood. so the fuse is HOT on both sides? you should hear the horn relay click when pressing on the horn switch. there may be other relays in that fuse box to swap with and see if the horns work, if the relay clicks, its "usually" good, but the contacts may be bad. if the relay clicks, check for power at the horn. DARK GREEN wire, if it has power , then check the black wire, thats the ground. If it has power and ground, but does not work, the horn is bad.

The horn doesn't work. where is it located?


The horn is located at the front of the vehicle near the radiator. Before you even look at the horn, check the fuse - the horn has its own fuse. Then check the horn relay and then the horn. Lastly, if the horn still does not work check the horn switch/button

The horn won't honk. What do I need to do to fix the problem. What does it mean to have service ride control show up/


If you hear clicking near the engine compartment fuse and relay box when the horn pad is pressed, then you need to check the horn fuse,(probably have to look the location up in the owners manual) if the fuse is blown, you may have shorted out horns or a short in the wiring to the horns. Usually there are two horns for the vehicle and if you install a good fuse in the horn circuit then unplug one horn and test the operation the horn may work or the fuse will blow again. If the horn works, disconnect it and reconnect the other and retest,if the horn does not work and the fuse blows, you have found your bad horn. Good luck.

There are two main causes for Service Ride Control message - active strut failure and accelerometer failure.

HORN WONT WORK- IS THIS A FUSE PROBLEM OR DO I NEED A NEW HORN


Probably a fuse.. Look under the hood near the front & see if there are two horns or one.. If it has two - its more than likely its not the horn.. Look for a fuse..

Horn does not work


Look for your hood latch its located near the floor on the drivers side at the bottom of the dash. Look up under the dash and there is the fuse panel. Look for any burnt fuses because it could work off of another fuse. Horn should be visible though for you to replace it.
