When you depress the horn, the relay should click, if not then the horn button or connection is bad. these have 2 buttons, right? it doubt both could be bad. if just one big horn pad, pad could be bad

Bought a 1992 acura vigor and found horn fuse missing. when I replaced the fuse alarm goes off and constantly sounds. how do I stop it? I've read that there's a relay somewhere under the hood


horn relay located on the right side kick panel,you will see a row of relays,if horn relay is okay, more likely your horn control pad has a short inside causing horn button contacts to stick causing horn to keep blowing.

How do you troubleshoot the horn


if your horns work with alarm using remote, then fuse and relay good if you hear no horn using remote set off alarm,and horn pad dont work, replace horn fuse and relay, if both okay, you have to replace the whole horn pad with air bag in steering wheel both horn control pads and airbag is one assembly.

Horn is not working on my 2001 Chevrolet Silverado. Also, when I set the alarm, the "beep" doesn't work. I'm assuming it's also the horn that makes the beep. Fuses are ok, replaced horn, tested...


There are a couple of relay locations. There is one in the engine compartment located on the left inner fender. You will have to remove a cover to see the fuses and relays. I believe there is another panel with some relays inside the cab on the firewall behind the foot pedals on the left. Again you will have to remove a cover to see them. Not sure where the horn relay is located. If you still have your owners manual it should identify all of the fuses and relays. They are easy to replace, you just pull them out like a fuse and put a new one in. Use a test light if you have one to see if you have voltage at the horn when the horn button is pushed and check any grounds your horn might have. If you have voltage at the horn maybe the new horn is bad also. That can happen.

I have a 98 Nissan altima gxe and my alarm won't honk when I lock the car but the lights go off when I lock it and Wen I take the alarm off no honk or lights go off Wat can I do


holdboth the lock and unlosk buttons on your remote simultaneously for about five seconds until the lights flash and horn chirps.that should do it.if not i believe these models used a separate horn for security system.possibly fuse for this horn is bad or the horn itself is bad.to see if this horn works lower drivers window.stand outside vehicle and lock doors with remote.wait about a minute and reach in window and MANUALLY unlock and open door(do not use power door lock button)this should cause the system to activate...horn should beep and headlamps should flash.if horn beeps try my first suggestion.if it doesnt beep and just the head lamps flash check fuses and horn for security system.

Our horn doesn't work on our '98 dodge grand caravan. can we fix ourselves? what are cost estimates to fix?


If you have a 12 volt test light you can pull the wire off the horn and hook one end of the test light to ground and the other to the wire for the horn then have someone press the horn button down if the light comes on then the wireing system is ok and it's the horn froze up, if it does not come on try replaceing the horn relay with a relay that is the same I believe the head light and AC relay are the same so try switching and see if the light comes on, if not and you have checked the fuse for the horn then it may be in the steering wheel where the problem is. You can test the horn by applying a wire to the positive side of the battery and touching it to the horn spade connector, if it beeps then you know it's ok and you have a problem in the steering wheel. I will stop at this point because working on the steering wheel can be dangrous unless you unplug the battery first, the reason is you could set off the air bag by accident and this would take another page of instructions to do it safely, if the air bag blows it can kill you. Hope this helps and get back to me if these test prove that the horn is good and you need to check the steering wheel assembly. Thanks for using fixya.

My horn does not work. I press the horn, but all i hear is a click in the fuse box. Checked the fuse and it is good. I bought it from a auction and had problems with the alarm and locking because i didnt...


If the horn fuse ( Fuse #26 ) is installed and has power on both sides of the fuse, you might want to check that the horn connector is still on the horns.

The horn relay is not serviceable in the fuse panel.

You can test the horn connector for power, the Yellow w/ Light Green wire, when the horn button is pressed.

Horn button on 98 Sienna


I just took a look into my steering wheel horn set up.
It is defective design. Only one of the two contact plates are connected. The ground from the spiral cable is not used for the horn. I can fix the first part, but the latter part will need a consult with Toyota service dept or HQ. If you have the same problem, let Toyota and nhtsa.dot.gov know about the problem. I've read a lot of fixes that didn't work. The normal suspects on the horn are: relay, horn (use the alarm to check or by pass the relay), spiral cable, contact plate, but my new one is that one of the contact plate is not connected and ground from spiral cable is not used for the horn. Just indirect contact from the steering shaft. You need to know haw to remove the air bag to look at that area.

98 sl2 horn replacement with car alarm


You need to wire a relay to the horn wire first and then run the wire from the relay to the horn. You need to get a single pole relay. go the auto parts store and tell them what you are doing and they will sell you a basic horn relay. The stock horn had a relay attached to it.
