04 Impala 3.8 horn blows low volume and sounds weird


sounds like the diaphragm in the horn is worn/dried out. check to see if you have battery voltage to the horn with either a test light or voltmeter and the horn has a good ground as if not then the horn won`t operate correctly. if these are good replace horn.

Horns not working,original relay 43yrs old !


You hear clicking at horns, and not the relay? Maybe the horns went bad, or maybe you need to check and clean the connections there.
Don\'t know why the cab light went dim, unless the horn wire was trying to make contact?
Yes, TJ, the horn wire should be hot. You are grounding that hot wire when you press for the horn. That hot wire comes from the coil side of the horn relay. Press for horn, it grounds the coil side of relay, and the relay can pass power to the horns.
Now back to the clicking no-honker horns: power gets to the horns when relay is energized, and there has to be a good ground for horns to work. I don\'t know if your horns are case grounded or a wire from horns goes to ground, but check the ground there. If case grounded, pull horns off and clean the ground. Also might try a known good horn. Keep at it, sounds like you are almost there.

Horn not working


it could be the contacts inside the steering wheel. if they get dirty or corroded they won't make contact and that contact is what completes the circuit to sound the horn

Horn does not work, checked switch,tried another horn?


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Have you tried another horn? If it still fails then the problem can be on the fuse or wiring itself. There must be faulty wiring that's why it won't work. I strongly suggest that you take it to a reputable auto electrician for this will require an on hand trouble shooting.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Horn wont work.i check the fuse in the door and


Maybe horn became unplugged. Put 12 v power to horn make sure horn works. Put test light on terminal on horn have someone press the horn button, if light comes on and horn does not blow you may need new horn. if light does not come on you may have bad contact at horn button, blown fuse, broken wire, bad horn relay or possibly just a bad ground.
