Sure just connect the existing horn wire to new horn. Make sure there is a good ground connection. Then try the horn, if it works you're in business. If not, then the horn strip in the steering wheel is bad.

I have a 1998 chrysler concorde. The airbag light on the dash stays on and my horn doesnt work. How do i fix this without costing me tons of money?

Could be a wiring problem or the clockspring in the steering column.
You would need to pull the steering wheel and test the circuits.

How do I wire a horn on a 1995 chev truck

Is there a problem with horn wiring in the steering column? The safest fix is to fix so the horn button on the steering will work. I'm not sure I understand your problem?

You could mount a separate horn button on the dash, but, that isn't the safest thing to do because your used to the horn button on the steering wheel.

If you mount a separate horn button, all you need is the horn ground that goes up the steering column, it is black. Find the harness under dash that goes into your steering column, black wire, just to test, use jumper wire from that wire to good ground, if the horn starts sounding, that's it. Run that wire to horn button. Also, you may need to run second ground from that horn button, if it doesn't ground through mounting bracket.

Changed rack and pinion. when turning wheel to right horns started blowing. unplugged airbags and horn stopped. drove truck for 1 day now wont start and dome light is blinking and warning lights on dash...

It sounds like you disturbed the wiring or the connector inside the lower portion (inside the cabin, under the dashboard) of the steering column. You may have also pinched wiring higher inside the steering column, up near the horn button. You'll need to track it all down & correct the wiring problems in (and around) the steering column.

Horn stopped

Check wiring connecters to the horn Check fuse. Or even better purchase another horn if above is fine. A good way of checking is remove the connection to the horn and place a tester onto the wires and press the horn inside. If there is signal to the horn then replace the horn.

Help my 95 ford windstar alarm or horn starts when I am driving and take a curve. What could it be and is it expensive?

It sounds like the wiring between the horn button on the steering wheel and the dashboard is chafing. The insulation has been slowly rubbed off due to movement of the steering wheel. This is the only point between the moving parts (steering wheel) and non-moving parts (steering column). When the steering wheel is turned, the wiring contacts other metal and simulates the horn button being pressed.

It shouldn't be an expensive repair - but contacting your trusted local mechanic will remove any questions. If you do not have a regular mechanic, check with several to to make sure you're getting a fair cost estimate.

I hope this helps & good luck!

My 2003 Toyota Echo horn doesn' work. where is it located?

Try checking the fuse. It should be labeled fuse. It will be in one of the fuse boxes. If the fuse don't work, you probably have a loose wire or perhaps a bad ground. All ground wires are black. You will have to check the wiring circuit to the horn. You will need a voltage meter to test the wires, maybe a wiring schematic would be better. Check each wire and find the one that has low or no current. Change the wire and solve the problem. The circuit is inside the steering column. If you have a question, let me know. I am here to help. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

The horn quit working i ran a jumpper wire to it and it works what do i need to do next

It sounds like it could be a fuse isuue. I would first try to see if you can locate a fuse for the horn in your fuse box, ( fuse box should be inside, on the driver's side, under the dash, near the driver's door. When you remove the box cover, look on the inside of the cover, it may have fuse diagram to help you locate the fuse for the horn.

If it isn't a fuse related problem, you may need to run a new lead wire to the horn. The old wire could have be faulty from breakage, or corrosion.
That was good thinking using a jumper wire.
Best of luck!

Horn continue to sound

see for weather any wire is sort or cut any where in the wiring loom it might happen if a wire which is making direct body contact can lead to direct earth without applying or pressing the horn it is better you take the car to nearest authorized service station for proper working of horn & to solve this problem in other case get the vehicle to a better technician or electrician for solving such problem
