The horn grounds to the frame so make sure it & the frame are well sanded & clean on both surfaces. This should solve the problem. Good luck!

Horn no blow


check for blowed fuse or bad relay, you can hook test light to see if horn getting power when you press horn pad if fuse and relay okay,remove horn and hot wire it if it blows, more likely horn pad with airbag in steering wheel bad,if horn pad bad you have to replace whole airbag with with horn pad as a unit.if horn dont blow when hot wired then horn it self is bad.

My 2006 Honda civic has a underhood fuse box problem due to which horn of my car is continously blowing. Mechanic is suggesting to bypass the fusebox for horn and use horn directly with a relay as the...


The mechanic is right. The relay is needed to prevent voltage problems, but remind him that you want a fuse inline since one way or another, the original was fused.
Also ask him about what happens with the antitheft alarm. It is suppose to blow the horn with lights flashing. You probably will lose the horn for that task.
Since this is a Hybrid, it will be very difficult to obtain a used or Salvaged fusebox for your car from a Salvage yard. Otherwise using a used part would save you alot if you want the fusebox replaced.

In the cluster of relays under the hood(passenger side ) of a 1988 300zx, which one is the horn relay?


this is a tough one, there are a few relays there you will need to have someone push on the horn and you feel relays until you feel a clicking on the relay and that will be the one, alsom check the fuse first to make sure thats good, most of the time its a fuse or bad horns a horn relay doesnt go bad to often so start first with the fuses, heres a diagram of the insidee fusebox, the horn fuse is # 9 and holds a 10amp fuse, hope this is helpful.johnjohn2_45.gif

I just bought a 2000 Saturn SL 4-dr sedan. It's in great shape, but the horn doesn't work and the dashboard light don't work. Is this a simple fix with replacing the fuses or dash light or is it a little...


Check fuse for horn and for dash lights. If the interior lights work then suspect dimmer switch for the dash lights. If you press the horn button do you hear a click under the hood or inside the car? If you do not then the fuse is blown and if the fuse is good then the relay may be suspected bad. If the fuse is good and the relay clicks then suspect the horn to be bad. If fuse is blown and you put a new one in and you push the horn and the fuse blows again, then disconnect the horn before replacing the fuse again. Then push the horn button and see if you hear the relay click if you hear a click the the horn is bad or wiring butmost likely the horn. If you have the horn unplugged and the fuse is good and you push thee horn button and no relay click suspect the horn button to be bad. Hope this helps.

Horn not working on 1999 z28 camaro / what could


Well, it could be a fuse. Check the associated fuse, if it is ok then proceed to checking for power at the horn (it should have 12v). If the horn has power then replace the horn. If it does not then seek proffesional certified help due to the fact that the problem is going to be in the steering column or horn pad, and that will require dealing with the airbag system (which is NOT recommended) unless qualified.

No horn on 1997 pontian grand prix,checked fuse in fusebox,not the problem,what other solutions ?


The horn uses a relay switch which is also in the fuse box.
Find the relay switch and get the number off of it.
Check other relay switches in the box for the same number and "swap" the two to check the horn. If horn works, purchase new relay for the horn or the other accessory.

Horn wont work.i check the fuse in the door and


Maybe horn became unplugged. Put 12 v power to horn make sure horn works. Put test light on terminal on horn have someone press the horn button, if light comes on and horn does not blow you may need new horn. if light does not come on you may have bad contact at horn button, blown fuse, broken wire, bad horn relay or possibly just a bad ground.

2004 Hyundia Elantra. My horn does not work either.


if i'm looking at the right diagram, the horn-a/c fuse & horn relay is in the underhood fusebox. if your
a/c clutch is working then you have power there. short of diving in with a multimeter or computer-safe testlight,
i would listen for the horn relay to click when the horn button is pressed. that circuit is hot all the time and the horn switch
grounds the horn relay. if you hear a click then most likely you have a bad horn/s. if you don't hear a click then you have a
bad horn switch or bad clockspring in the steering column. and .... there's always the possibility of just having a bad
connection somewhere in that circuit. if you see another relay with the same part number as the horn relay,
try swapping relays. good luck ........
