Horns die like crazy on these. put power to the horn and make sure it works. The horn button is possible too the clockspring connection at the steering wheel. Find the wire in the harness under the colum that works the horn its black and it's on one end of the connector. with a test light hooked to ground, touch the wire and it should light dimly and the horn relay shough click. if it does the horn is likly or the fuse is blown two wires at the horn one shold be hot all the time and the other becomes grond pushing the horn button if thats good the horn is bad

Verify the fuse, the steering wheel switch, the relay and test the horn directly

Can not get horn to blow on a 2001 malibu


2001 malibu horn fuse and relay are located in the under the hood fuse box.
location 21 should be the relay
location 43 should be the fuse.
if the relay is put in wrong the horn will not work. if you replaced the relay and the horn stopped working try pulling the relay out and turning it around. and try the horn again.

My Horn Isn't Working


It could possibly be the relay itself or the horn. To test connect power straight to the horn, if it goes off then its the relay if not then its the horn.

You can replace the horn. Check to see if the wires connected to the horn have power. Check with a test light. If power is present then the horns are bad.

The horn in my 2003 chevy cavalier stopped working and i need to know why it stopped working and where the horn is located


It may be your horn fuse. It will be in one of your fuse boxes. Just follow your diagram on the fuse box lid.

2005 sierra horns stopped working. I hear a click at the fuse box under the hood when i press horn. I know horns are good as i wired them direct. is there another fuse somewhere other than in the fuse box...


The click you hear is the horn relay -- this likely has either dirty / corroded connections or burned contacts inside the relay. If cleaning all relevant connections doesn't solve the problem, replace the relay. You can find the realy by having someone push the horn button while you track down the click.

How do I unplug the horn, it wont stop beeping Where is it under the hood


The horn is located behind the bumper cover, behind the grill. There should be a 20 amp horn fuse under hood in fuse box, and the horn relay is up under dash on the right side of instrument panel, unplug one of these, or both and the horn should stop beeping.
