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.

Removed the only wire connected to horn it now is only held and connected to frame by a single bolt. Afraid to wire in air horn because horn still sounds even though it has no wire connected to it.


Hi Christian:
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.

Trying to replace horn on 2002 elantra,can't find horn


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.
Good luck.

HOrn makes a noise but very weak noise. should i replace the horn or horn relay?


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,

Where is the location of the horn in a 2000 Jetta?


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.

2006 honda accord horn


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.

My horn is not working on my 1994 bmw m3, i have looked under the bonet but i cant find the horn, any ideas where is is ?


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

M3 convertible horn


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
