Question about 2002 Honda S2000

Open Question

I just replaced the battery with the correct size & type for my yr/make/model. When I connected the terminals, the horn started a constant blaring and the ABS motor started running. Otherwise I had no electrical power to any other components that I could notice. I tried the alarm/lock/unlock buttons on my car key with no effect. I bought this car new and it has no after-market mods of any sort. What can I do to get this battery installed and working properly??

sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff

SOURCE: My Car wont let me start it

Well, my mom found a little button underneath the dash board on the drivers side. And I guess its kind of like the reset button. So she pushed it and started the car and it was fine!

SOURCE: car alarm goes off for no reason

I had this same problem just today.Hhowever, I had the remote in my hand and it would not stop the honking!. Since I could get into the car, I released the hood, opened the master fuse box on the left side, and pulled the fuse labeled "Horn Relay".(On the upper left, there are three large, black, square fuses, it is the third and is labeled in the lid). I waited ten seconds and put the fuse back in, no more alarm, no more infernal honking.

Why my Honda horn keep beeping when connecting negative battery terminal


DOUBLE CHECK that you have connected the battery the right way and haven't put the positive on the negative. This is sometimes a warning that you have the terminals the wrong way round. If the battery is fitted correctly check the fuses.

My car battery got dead so I bought new battery and tried to replace the old one. As soon as I reconnected the terminals of the new battery the car started making panic horn noise. Its horn alarm goes on...


On some models you can disable the alarm after you connect the battery by locking and unlocking the driver door with the key.
I would disconnect the horn or pull the relay until you can get the alarm turned off.

How to fix horn problem in 1996 toyota corolla


HI,
Try to find out first what is the part that cause the malfunction of the horn.
The three major part of the horn is the relay, harness & horn pad, and horn itself.
Check the relay if it is functioning by replacing it with similar type ( if you have the spare or a similar relay in the relay/fuse box in engine compartment ). Let somebody push the pad horn and if you hear a clicking sound on the relay, it means there is a current that activates the relay( no probs from the horn pad and harness ).
Check the horn, just get a wire and directly connect it to the positive pole of the battery and connect it( wire ) to the positive terminal of the horn, it should activate the horn, if not the problem is the horn and you have to replace it.

Hope that helps!

Subject: How to check an inoperative horn
Customer's exact description: ...the horn on my 1995 Buick LeSabre does not work...how to fix?
Here's how it's done:
Step 1. Start with the pre-check:

Do a Thorough Visual Inspection
Do a thorough visual and "hands-on" underhood inspection before starting any diagnostic procedure! You can find the cause of many problems by just looking, thereby saving yourself a lot of time. • Has the vehicle been serviced recently? Sometimes things get reconnected in the wrong place, or not at all. • Don't take shortcuts. Inspect connectors and wiring which may be difficult to see due to location.
Step 2. Instructions:
One. Remove the horn relay and check for battery voltage at the relay connector terminals.
  • If battery voltage is present at both terminals, go to Two.
  • If battery voltage is not present, check the ORN wiring and the relay fuse for circuit.
Two. With the horn switch depressed, measure voltage from the relay terminals. Wear hearing protectors, if someone is assisting you and depressing the horn switch while you're under the hood.
  • If voltage is present, go to Three.
  • If battery voltage is not present, check the black wire for an open circuit; check the connectors for proper terminal contact; check the in-line connector for proper terminal contact; check the spring loaded contact, slip ring, and horn switch for an open circuit.
Three: Connect a fused jumper from relay connector terminal 30 to terminal 86.
  • If the horn does not sound, go to Four.
  • If the horns sound, replace the horn relay.

Four: Disconnect the the suspect horn connector. Connect a fused jumper from the suspect horn terminal B (dark green) to the positive + battery terminal.
  • If the horn sounds, check the wiring to the horn relay for an open circuit or short to the ground.
  • If horn doesn't sound, check the black wiring for an open circuit, if OK, then replace the horn.

All the best,
Ben

I check the fuse and the horn is not working


Check in your owner's manual for the location of the horn relay. It will usually look like a small metal or plastic box that plugs into either the main fuse box or the high amp fuse box under the hood. If your horn fuse is good then most likely the horn relay needs replaced.

My daughter is looking to replace the battery in her 1997 lumina. What size/model battery does she need?


Look at the battery the label should have a capacity rating in Ah eg. 65Ah. This should be the same or larger for the new battery. Physically the battery should be the same size to fit in the tray in the car and have the same type of terminals : flat lug or round post type.
A decent car battery seller should be able to look up the car model and give you the correct battery.

Car won't start. replaced battery. ok for 3-4 days. Problem reoccurred. dealership can't find what is draining power. Replaced battery second time. cycle started over again.


If you have some electrical know how you can try to trace the draw yourself. You will need a multimeter capable of measuring amps.

First dis-connect the negative terminal, and make sure your dome light and everything else is turned off.

Next connect the multimeter in between the terminal and battery connection basically completing the circuit, and make sure the meter is set to amperage.

You should get a reading somewhere around 14-25 milliamps depending on how old or new the vehicle is. If you have a reading of say 200 milliamps then you have a draw somewhere.

Now once you get a clear level reading start by removing individual fuses and seeing if the reading goes down. Once you find the fuse that drops the reading down to an acceptable level you found the circuit that has the problem.

At this point you would have to trace individual parts of the circuit to find the specific draw which requires a fair bit of know how, and should be done by someone with this knowledge.

Horn won't work. and already checked fuse.


the problem may be that the horn is faulty or the horn button on the steering wheel is not making contact, check for loose wires & connections, to check the horn remove the wire(s) from it then connect a wire to the positive terminal of the battery then to the horn if the horn is OK it should work if not it is faulty & will need replacing,if the horn has two wires to it you will need another wire from the negative terminal of the battery to the horn as well........hope this helps......cheers
