At the proper fuse, did you check for voltage at the fuse circuit, hot all the time. For the horn relay in the picture, pin 8 is hot all the time. If you use proper jumper wire between pin 8 and pin 10, the horn should sound. If it does, have to check coil/control side of relay, voltage and ground.
The horn button and wiring in steering column is part of horn relay ground circuit.
check horn fuse and relay.if both good hot wire horn if it works the horn button pad need replacing meaning you have to replace the whole horn pad and airbag in the steering wheel.if horn dont work when hot wired more likely horn is bad.
Check fuse. Usually located under the Steering wheel or under the hood. You will have to use the other side of the cover to determine which fuse controls the horn and see if the metal link is broken. If both are not blown its probably a short in the wire. If it randomly just happened then its a good first guess without knowing any further details.
Usually I check all my fuses any time I am looking for a specific one. Sometimes a random fuse can be the cause, and not the actual Horn fuse that is blown.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Life up the hood and take out the horn fuse. I have seen multiple Chrysler's, all 1996, have the alarm going off. The horn blows, lights go off, and ticking. I believe there should be a fuse labeled "alarm". That is the one you want to take out. If it is not there, you can always take the horn fuse out. I am not for sure if yours is the black square fuses, but that is where it is on the 96 sebring and avenger. Hope this helps.
- Check the fuse, there is a list and a component location table in your owner´s manual
- Is the fuse OK this is getting tricky ;) Look for the horn, it should be mounted somewhere under the front bumper. Use a Voltmeter or an LED probe to find out if there is voltage delivered to the horn itself.
If there is system voltage (12 volts) on the horn´s plug, the horn is defective. If there is no voltage at the plug while somebody is depressing the horn on the steering wheel, it´s time to see the shop.
A defective horn contact switch or even the body control module may cause the malfunction, unfortunately there´s no way to service these units without diagnosis equipment and special tools.
The horn relay is located toward the front of the engine. It is located just behind the radiator overflow reservoir and attached to the inner fender next to two other relays. It is the only one without a plastic cover over the top of it. FYI, our Crown Vic horn didn't blow, and the cruise didn't work. I changed the relay and still no horn. I decided to check the horns themselves. Found wires disconnected from terminals. Touched wire to horn terminal and horn blew incessantly. (previous owner had disconnected horn rather than diagnose why) Pulled the horn "button" from steering wheel and disconnected the wire leads and horn quit. Disassembled the "button" assembly. Foam had degraded over time between the contacts. (Ford has discontinued this part). Cleaned and replaced foam with Scotch foam mounting squares with holes punched out over contacts (2 layers thick). Re-assembled and viola! Horn and cruise control both work! Relay was bad as was horn button.
