This is probably a temp thing...night brings colder temps. The wiring may be failing or the steering wheel portion over the horn might harden and cause it to touch the center of the horn to make it go off.
Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

Sounds like you have short to ground somewhere, I would check the wires near the horn itself and if they are ok check the clock spring.

SOURCE: 1996 Saturn SL. Horn doesnt work. Fuse is ok.

it is behind bumper drivers side. I believe there is a relay in the horn, making the horn unique and origional replacement required. if it has three wires in it then it has built in relay.

SOURCE: location of horn on 1996 Saturn S series

On SL2, the horn is just in front of the radiator in the middle of the car. It is nautilus shaped, although it is difficult to see the shell-like shape while it is installed.

'96 would have a built-in relay in the horn; no relay in the junction box.

Hope help with this.

2001 VW Bug Horn was randomly honking, Now it wont work at all. Relays and Fuses are good. Should I just replace the horn itself? Not quite sure whats the issue.Want to figure out before making drive


it the horn activates randomly when driving and when the steering wheel is moved , the problem will be the ground contact under the steering wheel
there is a small spring loaded button that runs on a slip ring in the back of the steering wheel and intermittent/ random operation can be traced back to a fault in this area
the horn works so it is good , the fuses and relays are working to make the horn work so they are good ( unless there is a grounding problem with the relay causing the relay to operate and blow the horn)

I have 79 El Camino. Horn blows randomly while driving down the street. How do disconnect ot


You can unplug the horn/s. You could pull the horn fuse, pull the horn relay. Of course that isn't the proper fix, you may need the horn. The problem is usually the wiring in the steering column. I can't be positive, at the moment.

Horn dosen't work


Check fuse. Usually located under the Steering wheel or under the hood. You will have to use the other side of the cover to determine which fuse controls the horn and see if the metal link is broken. If both are not blown its probably a short in the wire. If it randomly just happened then its a good first guess without knowing any further details.

Usually I check all my fuses any time I am looking for a specific one. Sometimes a random fuse can be the cause, and not the actual Horn fuse that is blown.

Horn randomly honks(very annoying while your trying to sleep) HELP!


its possible that the relay is the problem as most relays have a second power feed wire,if it shorts to the horn side of the relay it can blow the horn.doesn`t happen very often but it does happen.this could explain the horn blowing without the fuse in.you can get a door key made at a lock smith to solve that problem.

99 dodge durango. My horn keeps blowing the 20 amp fuse under hood. There is also a horn relay. Could that be the problem? The horn will work after I replace the 20 amp, but blows within a few times of...


could be you might check it out. many items take the same relay so you might try exchanging it with another one with the same numbers. If that isn't it you may have a short in the horn itself.

Horn , power windows and sunroof all stoped working on 2007 changed horn fuse and as soon as i used the horn the fuse blew again


This wold indicate that you have a shorted horn circuit. Generally, the horn circuit has a negative contact at the steering wheel, meaning when you push the button, it grounds (-) the sysem causing the relay out in the engine compartment area to provide 12V (+) directly to the horn. If nothing else causes the fuse to blow, the pwr window/sunroof., then either the relay itself is shorting out or a wire to the horn is grounding, or you have a bad horn. (spend a few fuses & save time, unplug the relay, replace the fuse & press the horn button & see if the fuse blows. Next, plug in the relay & do the same for the horn)

Generally it won't be the wire from the horn button or the horn would be working continually. Your owners manual should tell you where the relay is & you could see if you notice any unusual appearance to the case, as well as following the wiring from there to the horn, to see if any damage is apparent. IE: if the horn is located in the front grill area or near a opening in the fenderwell, does it appear a rock or something has hit it or any wiring causing damage. With a vehicle as new as yours, if it isn't obvious damage, I would suspect the relay. good luck

My daughters 1998 honda accord ex keeps blowing fuses she is having to replace the brake light fuse after we replaced the brake light switch when she changed the fuse last the horn blew and she was shocked...


The horn and rear brake lights are on the same fuse. Eventually the horns rust out like on my 1998 CRV. Once I replaced the horns, I could put in a new fuse without it blowing every time I sounded the horn. Problems still remain, namely: the cruise control does not engage and the remote start only starts the engine that runs for two seconds then dies. Still looking for an answer. It's a "Code Alarm" with Codestart dated 11/24/99.

Horn blows randomly when closing doors


Horns have constant power all the time so when you press the horn button, all you are doing is grounding the circuit and that makes the horn blow. Usually what happens is that a spring breaks underneath where the horn button is or something allows the horn button to ground out somewhere, possibly even through the inside of the steering column.

04 CooperS: Horn does not work


Check the fuse first. should be in the drivers footwell. Make sure that it is not blown. 90% of the time fuse will just blow due to high resistance from one of the horns. There is a high and low horn often it requires to replace one and try the horn and see if it blows. Then replace the horn that blows the fuse.

Hi djdecks,

I would think that the problem is more likely to be on the hot side of the horn operation, than on the earthing.....Power is fed to the horn and is grounded, completing the circuit, when you press the button....Check first on the horn relay and follow it from there.....I don't believe the problem will be behind the steering wheel, unless the horn sounds all the time....
