Car horn wont work. Dont hear the relay clicking. Does anyone have any suggestions?


If the fuse blew, most likely the new one you installed also blew. Check it again. You have a short somewhere. Double check all the wires you did while installing the horn button.

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.

I have a 1998 Plymonth Grand Voyager and my horn doesn't work. Any suggestions?


Check your fuse box and see if there is a fuse for the horn. Check it with a continuity tester. If there is no specific fuse for the horn then use the one for the headlights or parking lights.

If all the fuses are good, locate the horn under the hood near the front of the car. Connect cables to the ground of your car and to the ground of your horn, then connect the red cable to the red battery connection and power side of your horn. If the horn makes noise it is good, If not it needs to be replace.

If the horn is good, then it may be wiring or the button on the steering wheel. Follow the wiring and check for continuity using a continuity checker or meter with the battery disconnected. If that is good then it is most likely the button on your steering wheel. It is best to have a tech replace it as the airbag is also in the steering wheel.

Horn not working ! it worked once then stopped any


start at the horn to see if it the wire is connected, then i would remove that wire and use a jumper wire from a positive(battery) to the horn itself and see if you get any sound. If the horn beeps then the horn itself is not the issue. check your horn fuse and relay. if you are getting power at the fuse and relay it is somewhere in the steering column. possible the horn pad itself or the horn cam. If you have have this in for repairs in the past dealing with the steering column it might not have been hooked back up properly. but then again how often do you use your horn it might have been not working for quite awhile. hope this helps.

Horn stopped working, fuse and relay is good


With test light check voltage at horn assembly on both wire's, could only have one, horn assembly itself could be ground, have some one press horn button while checking, if there is voltage replace horn assembly, if no voltage horn pad at streeing wheel bad. that's being fuse and replay are good.

My horn stopped working and the fuse is ok i need to know were to look now


It might be the switch in the steering wheel, to find out for sure, take a piece of wire long enough to reach the horn from the battery,
hook one end to the positive terminal of battery, touch the wire connection at the horn with the other end, if it blows, the switch in the steering wheel is bad. ( be careful not to touch any metal parts with the wire, you will get sparks).

2005 sebring convertible- horn goes off by itself for 30 seconds


FIrst off the horn's ground works through the steering wheel,so the wire is bare or the end is broken and grounding in a place where it should not. You will have to check the wires for the horn from the fuse box up to the wheel.
your power feed to the headlights and the door locks has an open ( the power is not connected somewhere ) Perform a wiggle test turn on the headlights and lift the hood,find the power distribution box and begin to wiggle the wire harness.Sometimes the chrysler fuse box under the hood get loose inside the power distribution box,it will have to be broken down all the way to the heavy wires comming out of hte box,you can tighten these connections your self.
