In many cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament for the horn circuit, 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 to disarm the airbag system.

    Hello Dennis, I just broke whatever the horn is connected to meaning (the spring on the wire is is still connected, but what you stick it in is broke) and my air bag light is on. Are you saying that all I need to do is purchase the clock spring? If so, where should I purchase?

Hi,

Hi, since the horn works from the key fob, that tells us the horn,relay and the circuit are okay. The problem is most likely in the steering column. The horn switch is part of the airbag in the steering wheel. There may also be a broken wire beneath the air bag. You may want to take it to someone who has experience around air bag systems, since you can be injured if you try to remove it yourself.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: My horn quit working but the relay and fuse are

It sounds like the switch itself, on the steering wheel, are not making contact. I'm guessing that if you can remove the front part of the steering wheel you could check and clean the contacts and also give you a chance to test the horn, while you are in there.

If the horn was very faint then it probably went bad. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I take it your fuse panel doesn't have a diagram on it or you don't have the owner's manual?

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.

Have a 2001 chevy cavalier, the horn does not work, i need to a fuse diagram to change the fuse as the manual is missing these pages..


Check ALL the fuses with a 12 volt test light.
Change all that are burnt.
Also.....check the wire going to the horn (at the horn) with your 12volt test light if the fuses are good.Have someone push the horn button.
It might be the horn or horn relay that is defective.....not just the fuse.
I replace more horns than fuses.

Can't find the fuse for the horn


There is no accessory fuse in the engine compartment, although the fuse that opperates the horn is also attached to the cigarette lighter and that is located just inside the drivers door on the side of the dash.
