The horn is generally located underneath the most front lower vehicle undercarriage either on the right or left side towards the wheel well splash guard area, bolted to the forward engine frame chassis. This is not seen from under the hood look usually. You must lay down on your back with a flashlight and look up. Should you find it, examine it to see if it is rusty. If so, replace it. If not, pull each connector out to examine for corroided connectors. If that is present, you should push and pull the connector on and off several times and then put some di-electric grease in the plug and plug them in. Tom H.

Hiya
There's two horns, a low-note pitch on the driver's side and a high-note pitch on the passenger's side.
Both are bolted vertically onto the 'front-under' frame, below-behind the headlight area...just above the steel interior bumper frame.
You'ld probably need to pull the 2 black plastic fastener plugs at each side of the bottom bumper corner to gain better access, otherwise the fender splash liner can be pulled aside by removing a small bolt and few plastic fastener plugs then spread it wide to gain access to the horns there.
Additionally, the first step-you could check the horn relay part in the engine bay's fusebox to check if it functions well.
If you want to, use a voltmeter to check voltage at the end of the horn's wire harness plug to see if 12v flows thru okay, in case the horns don't function anymore.

2004 tahoe horn location. Iam having problems with my horn. I have checked the horn switch on the steering colume. that may or may not be working the horn has worked recently buy useing a jumper


If you used a jumper wire on load side of horn relay and the horn sounded, the horn itself isn't the problem. Have you checked applicable fuses? Not only check the fuse, check for voltage on fuse circuit, use a testlight.
The horn button on the steering wheel and associated wiring is ground for control side of horn relay.

Horn has stopped working on my 2006 Ford Explorer. The fuse seems to be fine. What could be the problem?


I would suspect an underhood fuse, the steering wheel clock spring, or a wiring problem. It's cheap to triple check all the fuses. The other two will require some troubleshooting to figure out. Since the horn works with the keyless entry, the relay, the horn, and its control wiring seem to be ok.

Discovery horn & lights stopped working but the fuses are not blown


Sounds like a switch failure or a loose wire near the switch. A short wold have caused the fuse to blow. Remove the cover over the steering column and check the wiring

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.

I have a 2003 nissan almera and the horn has stopped working. How do I fix it?


There are three reasons for the horn going out. It could be a blown fuse "check the owners manual for fuse location", check the wiring at the connection on the horn "corrosion often occurs", or the the horn itself is bad. Hope that helps!

Horn not working


First check fuse. If fuse good you need to locate horns. You have 2. Either one is fine to check for power when you hit horn button. Between bumper & grill,underneath in engine compartment locate 1 or both. They are black& plastic. Run your test light clamp to ground. Unclip wire harness on horn. Insert pointed end in connector. If you get power when horn is applyed you need 1 or both horns.If you get no power to either horn, you need to check horn relay for power in & power out when you apply. If power in & no power out when you apply, you need relay.

My horn on my 2000 Volkswagen jetta vr6 stopped working and i checked all the fuses and they all good. so i need to find out whats the problem.


Try to locate the horn assembly. When you do, disconnect the wires from the horn and connect them to a volt meter. Make sure that the contacts are free of corrosion. Have a person activate the horn while you check to see if there is a 12 volt supply at the meter. If there is power, clean the contacts on the horn and reconnect the wires to their respective locations. Try the horn again. If the horn does not work, replace the horn assembly. Hope this helps.

The owner should locate the horn circuit . prepare the tools or equipment to be used.So that when the horn circuit is check it function properly.locate horn unit,horn relay,horn switch,horn power supply.check the fuse, check the relay,check the switch,check the wires,check the horn unit.Observe safety precautions.Use terms to describe checking horn circuit. If there are worn out or malfunctioning parts replace them.If there are loose connections of wires then reconnect it . But if the owner cant do it go to a car mechanic and the mechanic will do the job.

Horn won't stop blowing


If you can locate and pull relay, do that, if not, pull wires off at horn if you can, otherwise pull fuse. If you have other relays same in area of horn relay (same number on relay) try one of them in that horn spot to see if maybe it's just a stuck relay.If you pull fuse for horn, you may find out something else on same fuse, so make sure you check everything else is working.
