Question about Suzuki Cars & Trucks
Check the horn fuse first? if not why not? fuses are always first.
reg 10 is UK only code for 2000 year,
and all cars have air bags, and im sad posters here dont say
do not monkey that horn , or risk getting killed when the bag explodes and you are there 12 inches or less 30CM
dig? why not buy the FSM. and read the horn repair chapter
it has all those warnings, and how to defeat the bags first
on some cars , pull battery neg lug, for 1hr, then work.
and point 2 why not diagnose the car front to horn switch first.
avoiding the kill zone, see? is this clear?
so lets do that. ( I have no schematics for UK cars) im in usa.
ok mate,(ship mate?) here in usa a mate is wife. so no kisses.....
clean the horn ground first.
the horn, put any voltmeter made, ever.
measure, the horn to wire to ground.
(does horn work in UK , key off?) if not key on.
then have wife mate, hit horn button.
then you see 12vdc across the horn.
from body metal to horn hot term.
ok 12v, horn bad or ground rusty.
no ok , i get 0vdc honking,
so find the horn relay, omg, car has 2 horns and both are dead.
must be the relay, so we check the relay, a very old
Jules Vern idea, no?
a coil and contactor, (like seen in Frankenstein movies ) only smaller. Its just a relay , some have them other cars not. (look)
it's got 4 pins.
2 are coil.
2 are contactor (a simple switches, normally open0
no schematics, but you can get one , at Suzuki parts any time.
i put the meter on the 2 coil pins (across we say)
horn button pushed, got 12vdc , relay is bad.
horn pushed, 0v at coil , horn button or worse the freak'n air back coil spring is bad. ($$$$$$) &- risky.
i will not attempt to tell you, how to fix the button, or coil spring,
as that varies by model and year, and country, (laws)
and is risky,
see all those air bag recalls. ever wonder why,
and 10x that for mechanics with zero training,
and 100x on electric cars.
all tests with meter on 20vdc range, and black lead at battery must lug or at body steel metal . (scrap to get clean metal)
the air bad coil spring.
this device allows many signals (wire) to pass from body of car to steering and not break, after all wheel turns 360 degr. easy.
some cars are insane complex (radio buttons on wheel, yah)
this device many pass (will) air bag deploy wires (boom die)
and horn and xxxxx, (Read the FSM factory service manual and stop guessing)
be safe.! 1st.

If the car is consists of airbag than it is quiet diificult ask for proffessional and if it is free of airbag system than just pull out cover of suzuki s logo cover and after that u will find the terminals they were full of rust remove that rust and press the horn again u find it k
