In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.

Try Checking the ground. My girlfriend's '97 Avenger horn didn't work until i wired a new ground. It has worked perfectly ever since. Remove the horn bolt (10mm) from the frame and clean the mating surfaces with a wire brush. It is also a good idea to clean up the 10mm bolt in case this is the only clean contact to ground. Reattatch the horn. With a piece of wire and a female spade terminal, attatch the spade terminal to the length of wire (preferably about 3 inches long). Then tuck the non terminaled end behind the horn mounting bracket and plug the spade terminal into the negative horn lead. Test. If the horn blows, crimp a ring terminal on the end of your length of wire, remove the 10mm bolt, and reattach with the ring terminal secured behind the 10mm bolt. I hope that helps. Good Luck!

Where is horn located on 2003chevy caviler wont work changed fuse not help


The horn is usually located in front of the radiator/condenser. I would test it by applying 12volts, if it works you know it is the horn relay or the horn button itself.

2000 VW golf horn won't work, fuse is good , relay 53 is good but changed it anyway. No voltage reading at horns. Tested horn off car and it is fine


Did you check the power to the relay? and then the signal wire (ground) at the relay to see if it's being signaled? Otherwise you may have a clockspring or module problem not allowing the signal to pass through to the relay.

My 2001chrysler town and country van horn does not work


Check the horn relay to see if it works. Most cars use the same relays for multiple other functions. Check the part number on the horn relay and find another relay that is working that has the same part number. Swap out the horn relay with the known good relay. If that doesn't work, check all the wiring in association with the horn. If all the wiring is sound, then it is probably the horn itself, but that is very rarely the case.

2003 - RX300 I'm tring to change the battery,when I connect the negative terminal, the horn blows and won't stop... I've turn the key to start and nothing happens, the horn keeps blowing.......


I would check to see if this is a relay problem for the horn. Remove the relay for the horn and see if you can swap it with another to confirm it is bad. If with another relay it doesn't stay on you no it was just a relay so go get a new one. The only other thing could be a security issue and when you discharged the power by unhooking battery the vehicle is acting like it has been broken into. But i would say it's a relay problem. Good Luck.

I have a dodge caravan 2000, and the horn doesn't work. I changed the relay fuse and fuses. It still doesn't work. Please help.


REMOVE HOTWIRE HORN OR PRESS REMOTE BUTTON LOCK CAR DOORS IF YOU HEAR CAR HORN BLOWS WHEN ACTIVATE CAR ALARM. HORN WORKING.MORE LIKELY THE AIRBAG AND HORN PAD NEED REPLACING.IF YOU GOING TO FIX. DISABLE AIRBAG IN THE STEERING WHEEL BEFORE REPLACING THE AIRBAG AND HORN PAD. TURN OFF RADIO.THEN DISCONNECT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE FOR 20 MINUTES BEFORE REMOVING AIRBAG IN STEERING WHEEL.THAT HORN PAD WITH AIRBAG IS NOT GOING TO BE CHEAP.

Horn doesnt work


check horn fuse or relay in fuse and relay box (under hood). The fuse you can visually check by looking for a blown metal strip in the fuse (use chart on fuse box lid for labels). relays are more difficult to explain how to test. but they are cheap. you can try buying a new horn relay and installing it. after that, if it still doesn't work there could be a probably with the switch in the steering wheel. if it is i recommend you take it to a shop to diag and fix. worst case it could be a bad horn and/or elctrical wire and connection. A local shop could fix this. But check the horn fuse and relay that more than likely what it is.

Where is my horn relay located in my 92 olds cutlas cruiser ?


have you checked the fuse for the horn you don`t say what you have done to this point,if the fuse is good and you hear a click when you push on the horn button, then the horn relay is good as that is what is clicking,if not you will have to check the horn itself as some relays won`t work if the horn not itself is not working,by running a jumper wire from the battery positive to the terminal on the horn, it should work if not then the horn is the problem.the relay is on the fuse panel under the dash.I think it is a square sided relay
