If your fuse is not blown, then you'll want to test the horn voltage with a test light at the horn while the horn switch is being pressed.

I would suggest unplugging the horn & just testing the wire for 12V + and if you have voltage there but the horn won't work when reconnected you'll have to replace the horn.

If the voltage is missing at the horn connection when you do the test, then it has to be either the fuse or the relay, and finally, the switch on the steering wheel. Wiring is a last consideration based upon the circumstance.

The owners manual will have the fuse & relay location.

It of course would be a coincidence for it to be anything but the horn & I do expect that the horn is bad or has a bad connection which you'll correct when you reconnect it after testing! good luck

    OK, this is a completely different sceario: First, I still say, check fuses/connections anytime electrical isn't working, that's just the rule.

    Beyond that, you're describing 2 things that generally operate on the same ciruit. The brake lights and the horn are usually made to work through the same fuse and/or fuseable link & you need to actually check your voltage before replacing the Brake light switch.

    You are correct that the shift lock is probably not working due to not receiving power from the switch, check the other side of the switch also though as if it doesn't have power, then this issue is related.

    Brake pedal pushed, 12V on both sides of the brake terminals on the switch, Pedal not applied, 12V on just one side.

    Good Luck

    Otherwise, Go back to the testing of the horn as previously outlined & you should find the problem.

    Then you must have had voltage to the switch, & not to the other side of the switch. I'm hoping you've done everything on the list.

    After this you are just going to have to troubleshoot the problem by going from the switch at the shifter, all the back through the wiring until you find the break in voltage. I don't have a wiring chart but that's about it. IF the fuse blows again, it's a short. You may need a new switch at the shifter. good luck

Why would my floor board on the drivers side have a puddle of water? I did just replace a heater core. i thought that would solve the problem.

So you're saying you replaced the heater core because water was puddling on the driver's side, but water is still puddling on the driver's side? I'm assuming you're in the US and the driver's side is on the left and the heater core is on the right side.
Do you get much rain where you live? Is the vehicle parked outside? Do you notice the puddling more often after a rain? If this is the case, your water intrusion may be because of a leaking seal around the windshield or door. Check by getting the floor reasonably dry, and then have someone sit inside while another floods your car with a garden hose - specifically the windshield and driver's door. Have the inside observer try to catch a stream of water along the edge of the windshield, along the door jam, or along the door sill.

My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee is having a problem where the horn will not stop blaring. The fuse is good, as well as the horn relay.

The problem is caused by the Airbag Module that contains the Horn button contacts is warped from heat, this causes the horn to sound, you must replace the Airbag on the steering wheel to correct this, Refer to disarming instructions for the Airbag, it can be very dangerous as it is an explosive device.

My horn goes off when it rains hard the dealer has replaced the horns,horn airbag pad,and fuseblock and it still happens i have to pull the fuse out to make it stop my car is a chrysler 300 touring 2005

try this- put fuse in- pick area of car- say right near the horns- spray with garden hose- wait for horns to come on- you are looking for a "short" or bare wire- hose will simulate rain- do small areas and when get horn to sound - stop and look at wires in that area for damaged wiring- crushed wires or plugs or a spot where wire has rubbed casing off- then tape area up with electrical tape and continue on till you can not get horn to sound anymore with the water

Horn and brake lights

First if brake lights arent working then the shiftlock wont work. Works off of same circuit. I would check fuses for brake lights and also horn. Not exactly sure on the 92's but good chance theres fuse's inside car and also under hood.

Horn and cruise control stopped working

The horn probably got water in it and this caused it to rust around the electro-magnet inside causing it to seize up. Replace the horn.
