98 bonneville horn issue- changed both horns, relay works, I can now get my panic horn button to blow horn which didnt before. Still cant get my steering wheel to blow horn. Fuses are good based on my checking them. What am I missing? Two switches in steering based on pictures on steering wheel

    even though the steering wheel has two pics of the horn, I guess you still have to press the top center instread of the corners of the steering wheel to get it to blow. Working fine now.

The HORN Is a GROUND CONTROLLED BUTTON you need to FIRST Check under CENTER STEERING WHEEL Cover to see if it has a Bad Commectiot, After Asuring this there Is c CLOCK Spring UNDER Steering Wheel that is Fairly Common for Failing.

The FOB / Remote Utilizes a Different Part of the Curcuit to Activate Horn, I Hope this Helps you With your Problem as Im Sure of All that I Advised. Remember to RATE ME !!

Probe the wires at the relay with a test light, and press on horn while probing, if you can get the horn button to control the test light (On/Off)then you can rule out the connection under the wheel, if nothing then steering wheel will have to be removed.

My alarm does not make any sound,the hazards flash though on my 2005 jeep Cherokee Liberty


If it did ever work for you, then the problem should be the horn itself, the wiring to the horn, or the sensor/computer that tells the horn to blow.
Otherwise, the whole system may be defective.
God bless your efforts.

Where is the horn on my 2012 ford focus?


First.. check the horn fuse under the hood (see owner's manual for fuse location).. Second, check the horn connection--- the ground is unlikely, but possible, rather, on the front passenger side of the car, from the top, look down below the headlight, and beside the radiator, and you will see the horn assembly... The connection is at the bottom of the horn--- mine looked fine, but still did not work, even though I could hear the relay click when I hit the horn button in the car--- I placed a crowbar under the connector and pulled up slightly to reseat it. This was indeed the issue and the horn works again. If you don't hear the relay click when you hit the horn (or panic) button, try getting it from the dealer and replacing it (under five bucks), and the relay is also in the fuse box under the hood (beside the battery)... You will need the code on the relay as it is not in the system yet, as of November 2014... Good luck!

Horn doesn't blow. i have changed the fuse. it only blows with remote key lock


Should be clear that the problem is in the steering column horn mechanism, but to fix it you will need to remove the air bag.. Are you competent to do that safely?

Horn won't honk from horn button on wheel. Horn works from panic button. How can I check button on steering wheel? The car is a 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis. Thanks for help.


I replaced the horn relay which is located inside of fuse panel under the hood of car on the firewall, have someone push button to be able to hear a clicking sound coming out of the correct relay, then trade out relay of the same and see if horn works

2002 Saturn L100 No Cruise control, audio after panic horn


The body control module (BCM) controls the operation of the horn for the security system and remote keyless entry (RKE) functions. Circuit 28 is grounded by the BCM when the horn operation is desired. Normal operation of the horn is performed by the horn switch grounding the horn relay and is not controlled by the BCM.
You don't need to take this to a dealer ,besides there are no more saturn dealers . Try a independent repair shop .
Does the cruise control light light up when you turn the cruise on ? Have you checked the fuse's ?

The horn does not work , the fuse is ok .


Does the horn blow when you press the horn button on the steering wheel? If not I would first check the horn fuse ... then check the relay Swap it with a like relay (keeping in mind whatever you swapped it with won't work now if it is bad, or intermittant) ... owners manual will help with the locations of these.

If your Air Bag light light is aluminated and The Cruise Control does not Work then the Problem is in the "CLOCK SPRING" this Component is Located Under the Steering Wheel and it requires the Steering Wheel to Be Removed.You Must have Complete Instructions on this Procedure or Injury Can Be the result.
