Question about 1993 Chevrolet C/K 2500

How to replace horn button switch? I have the horn button wire which doesn't look broken yet it doesn't seem to want to stay in the hole in the steering column that it is suppose to go into to make contact? Is there another part in the column that could be broken or am I just not installing the wire properly?

    it appears what the stem locks into is broken, any ideas how to get to that piece?

  • soccermom141 Jun 08, 2010

    I know to go to Chevy and order a part if needed, that is pretty obvious. What isn't is exactly what is the part, do I have to disassemble the whole steering column to get to it, how is it removed and what is it called?

The wire has a housing with a tiny stem that locks the housing in place by twisting it 15 degrees
the switch is the contact inside the horn pad

1988 ford broncho horn doesn't work ,relay clicks when horn button is pushed,I replaced the horn it still doesn't work. what should I check next.

OK, try to use a test light and connect the horn lead to ground to see if there is current, and to see if it sounds. If it does, then the wiring is fine to the horn itself. The relay may click, but are the contacts ok? Maybe swap out the relay for a new one.

1995 Volvo Horn keeps blowing with key in ingnition, and engine running

You can do this for now so its not driving you crazy, then get it fixed.
If your car horn starts blaring and seems to be "stuck" (it won't stop blowing), you could be in for a few embarrassing moments. There's nothing quite like the stares and expressive hand gestures you can draw as your horn takes on a life of its own. There are a couple of things you can do to get the horn to stop.
If it got stuck when you pressed on the horn switch on the steering wheel, it could be because the switch itself is stuck. Press the horn switch again, or tap it a few times to see if it gets unstuck.
Turn off the engine and look for your fuse box. Look through the circuit descriptions and see if you can find one for the horn. If you can, pull the fuse. This should silence the horn immediately.
If you can't find the fuse box, can't remove the fuse, or the horn doesn't turn off, then you need to resort to more drastic measures. Open the hood of the car and try to locate the horn. If the rear of the horn is visible, you might be able to see the wires that lead to it. Disconnect the wires. If you can't disconnect them, then cut one of the wires. If you cut the wire, wrap the resulting two ends of the wire with tape so that they can't short out your electrical system.
You could disconnect the main wires that run to your battery. You shouldn't cut these but should disconnect them using a wrench. This might "reset" the horn. Hook the wires back up and if the horn doesn't turn back on, you should go directly to an auto repair shop to figure out what is going on. If the horn does turn back on, you'll need to locate and disconnect (or cut) the wires to the horn as previously described. Then, go to the auto repair shop and let them replace the horn for you.

My horn no longer makes sound i checked the fuse it is fine

Your horn is hooked to a relay. The relay is activated by the ground wire that comes from the horn button. If the fuse is ok then you need to check the relay and the horn switch. You may have a dead relay or a bad contact from the switch.
Hope this helps... Dale

Horn blows constantly, doesn,t blow the fuse or anything else. can this problem be outside of the horn blowing assy. on the steering wheel? it,s a 2000 galant. problem occurs all the time if the switch is...

  • The horn relay might have welded contacts (stuck in the on position). Pulling the relay should stop the horn.
  • The wiring harness on the steering column might have a broken wire to the horn relay shorting to someplace that applies power to the relay. In this case, turning the steering wheel all the way to one side or the other may stop the horn, and it won't sound when you press the horn button.
  • The horn button in the steering wheel is stuck on or shorted.

Horn stays on since I replaced the steering column on my 1984 chevy silverado

Remove horn pad button/switch.Screws in from the back. See if wire that goes to bottom of it is rubbing on shaft. If not the plastic insulator is not in correctly,missing or broken. It allows horn to get ground when you press on horn pad. Properly installed it pushes down & locks in place on the 2 tabs on its bottom.

Horn not working on 98 dodge caravan

It could be the fuse that has blown. Please check the fuse box under the hood for any blown fuses. Replace if found blown. Second reason could be the maladjusted contact points. They have to be so adjusted that the come in contact when you press the horn button or whatever your car has. Third reason could be the wires have broken. Please check the wire from the battery onwards to the horn switch to the horn.

I have a 91 buick reatta whos horn does not work,have replaced the fuse,no sound.

First, I should say that this is probably not the normal reason a horn does not operate...but, if it helps one person remedy the "non-functional horn" it will be worth the time it takes to write about it. Even though I am not a mechanic with lots of "mechanical terms", I hope I will be able to write up this "FIX" in a way that is understandable.....So here goes:
Neither horn button on my 1990 Reatta would work...power was traced to the steering wheel, but for some unknown reason there was no power getting to the button assembly. VERY IMPORTANT: We disconnected the battery and removed the Airbag Fuse and ONLY THEN did we pull the center ABS airbag module from the steering wheel..still connected to the steering wheel though.....
(Please read directions regarding Removal of the Airbag Package/Module found on the Reatta Club website, before doing the directions also include a step that says to disconnect the "YELLOW" WIRE that connects to the airbag and is found under the dash...but we could not find the yellow wire and continued cautiously without disconnecting it...but I am not saying this is the proper or safe thing to do!!!!) .....then the button assemblies were easily changed (following Reatta website instructions) and still no sound. Again, the battery and fuse were disconnected and the ABS module was removed and THIS TIME, with a flashlight, we looked into the the steering wheel, where the horn harness spring wire goes... and saw that the white plastic encasement, in the lower section of the hole, had been broken and a small peice of the plastic lay across the metal in the bottom of the hole. This peice of plastic was keeping the end of the harness spring from making contact with the metal at the bottom of the hole. I wrapped tape, sticky side out, around a thin "eyeglass" screwdriver, inserted it into the hole and retrieved it out of the hole..(vaccumn clearner would probably work as well)....thus leaving the metal inside, free of obstruction. Steering ABS airbag module was then replaced in steering wheel, along with the horn harness section lowered into the hole. Battery and fuse were again connected and the car was cranked....VOILA! ...the horn buttons sounded LOUD and clear! It was a beautiful sound!!! :) As said above, this is an unusual situation, but might be something to check before replacing parts....hope it helps someone. Debbie

My 99 Toyota Avalon horn does not make any sound.

save yourself the hassle , buy yourself a momentary 12volt switch drill a nice clean hole on your driversside dash and re-wire your horn to it, all the screwing around you'll do to figure out why toyota makes cheesy horn contacts you could have your problem fixed..

on one side of the switch you should run a wire that is a 12volt switched +
on the other side I would run another side run a new power wire to your horn
leave your horns stock ground and just replace the HOTLINE ..

you could even go as far as installing a la cou ca racha horn to bring back that 70's Lowrider feel lol
