Re: only one tone of the horn is working
Hi , the two horns are located on the left hand side at the front of the car behind the front bumper trim , you should be able to get to them by removing the engine undertray and possably the wheel arch liner , regards mark.

Many vehicles have 2 horns so that the sound is more pleasant. If there is no wire connected to a horn, it can not (in my experience) make any sound. May I suggest that you have someone assist you by tapping the horn button while you locate the horn that is sounding.
Why do you have to find an OEM horn? There are tons of horns that work just as well if not better. I bought my wife a used Kia Sorento a few years back and in two weeks the horn went out I went to the parts store got two new horns a high and a low tone horn cut off the original horn plugs and put crimp on connectors and these horns are way better sounding and a lot louder than the original one. Simple job.. You'll love the results and price about 20 dollars. Dealership order I couldn't even begin to think what they would charge and I could tell you I wouldn't pay it. You can find them but they will be on order.
Run a thick wire straight from the battery to the positive terminal of the horn. If the horn sounds normal, replace the relay. If the horn is still weak, locate the adjustment screw and play with that to try improve the tone, if that does not work or if there is no screw, replace the horn,
On a 2000 Jetta the dual tone horns are on the drivers behind the front bumper. On a 96 Jetta they are behind the front fog light panels. Don't know if you have a 2000 or a 96 because of the title of the question so I included both.
1.check the fuse 2.using a test light check for voltage at horn while horn button is depressed if power is present horn is bad.horn is located behind the bumper. 3. if no power at horn and fuse is good suspect clock spring this part requires removal of steering wheel to replace and test.
Hi there. I’m
pretty sure your Honda has two horns fitted which work together, but each one
has a different tone.Of course, when
one of the horns is not working the sound (tone) of the horn system sounds
different.Any reasonable Auto
Electrician will be able to locate the horn/s and quickly identify whether it’s
an electrical problem or just a faulty horn – in this case it’s probably one
non-working horn which should be replaced.Hope this helps, Scottech.
hi Colin I had the problem on my 95 M3 Convertible. The 2 horns are located at the front behind the kidney shaped grills. First off check the fuse if its ok then,
Unplug the electrical conector and press the horn on the steering wheel. If you hear a click from the relay thats great, if it still don't work they are useless and need to be replaced. You will need 2 aftermarket ones high and low tone. It will be worth it checking the supply to the existing horns at some point, just connect the car horn to the battery via cable if the horn is ok it will sound. By doing these simple steps you should eliminate the fault. Cheers Hope this helps English John
hi not aware of whether or not you solved horn problem? ie location but for info you will find horn just in front of the crossmember in front of radiator (where the bonnet closes onto ) horn is on the nearside looks like a disc secured by a nut+washer it has a plug on wire connector ps these horns are prone to fault but you might try tapping the horn gently with horn operated/pressed you can purchase a more reliable wind tone/horn and fitto same bracket and replace the terminalplug to connectors for new type easy diy check E BAY for hornes on car accessories ? hope this helps?
you will need some help , but unplug the horn and then depress the horn inside the car and you will be hable to hear a clicking noise, either inside the car or in the engine comparment, have some one locate the noise while you keep depresing the horn on and of to get it ti click on/off
and other thing there is many cars with only one horn make sure to try contacting the dealer and ask for service department and ask for it, you should be hable to do it by phone using yellow pages, or getting the phone number at by calling 411
also when you locate the clicking noise thats the horn relay
i will apreciate the feedback thank you
