Sounds like you may need to just replace your horns. Check for power at the horns while someone is actually pressing on the horn switch ( steering wheel). If you have power, replace horns. If no power, might want to check fuse and horn relay.

Alarm at my house randomly goes off , it says bell tamp ,it is a pr5208 system , is there any trouble shooting points you could give me please


Do not know that system, but normally the bell is the outside horn or bell that sounds when the alarm is activated. Some systems have a tamper switch in the mounting box so if someone attempts to remove the horn while the system is set, the alarm sounds.

Iveco 35.10 1998 2.8 turbo diesel timing marks


The timing mark will be either on the harmonic balancer or in a hole in the bell housing. If in the bell housing there will be a pointer that will point to marks on the flywheel face and the timing mark will be ING or a number like 15 or 17 or 21 . This is the number of degrees before TDC that your engine has to be set on for correct timing. You will get this number from a work shop manual or a dealer service centre or a diesel pump repair shop. The same on the harmonic balancer . Unlike petrol engine s where you can alter the ignition timing, with a diesel, that required timing mark is exact and any attempt to vary it ( advance - retard ) will result in engine damage . If the spec\'s say 17 degrees then that is it.

Horn not working


The problem is likely the rotating coiled ribbon contact under the steering wheel called the "Clock Spring" Always disarm the Airbag system before starting any work on the system.

I am trying to replace horns but i canot find thim


This might sound silly, but if the horns make any sound at all, even a faint clicking, you could locate them by sound (unless you are deaf, in which case I am not sure how you would know they don't work). The horns are in the front, behind the bumper. Good luck! :-) Oh, one other option: find someone with a similar vehicle, and have them blow the horn while you look to see where the sound comes from. If you are deaf, then you blow the horn and have them look for the horn. :-)

Horn doesnt work


Lift the hood of the truck. Locate the fuse box and lift the cover. Check the horn fuse listed on the cover of the fuse box. If the fuse is blown replace it. Have someone press the horn and listen for a faint click from the relay or swap the relay with another one with the same part number (IGN or AC) to test the relay. If you hear a faint click the horn switch on the steering wheel is good. If the horn works after swapping it with another, the relay is bad and you should order a new one. Remove the horn connector and check the voltage with a 12 volt lamp connected to the two wires or a volt meter when someone presses the horn switch. You can also directly wire the horn to the battery to see if it sounds. If it does not sound the horn is defective. If you do not have voltage check the black ground wire on the horn connector to see if it has zero ohms, or if you connect the 12 volt lamp from the black horn wire to the +12 of the battery the lamp should light. If not your ground wire is bad. I hope this helps you find your problem, but if you have any questions post a comment and I will answer your question.

95 olds cutluss cieara horn dont work. horn sounded weak when it was dien 4 mths ago. then when i pressed it last it amped out the horn and radio. hasnt work since. cheeked fuses


Check that the horn itself is not worn out. If it's not sounding when grounding out, or it has a history of being faint in volume, then replace the horn.

Horns do go bad over time due to atmospheric moisture causing the contacts to corrode.
