    replace the horn? You mean if it doesnt work. I'll try to locate it and see if there is a loose connection. Where is the horn?

    Helpful so far.

    Thanks for the quick response. I was so surprised and pleased.

Switch? Steering column module? Buss connections?
Test all of these.

Horn not working chevy tracker 2001


I'm not sure what your question or need is. The best that I can do is surmise that you want to know what to check or where to start. The first place to check is the fuse box. Inside the fuse box GM makes it easy to identify fuses and relays. Check for a blown horn fuse or a damaged horn relay. If the fuse and relay are fine then move to the engine compartment. have another person there to help you and a good test-light ready, in hand. Open the hood and connect your test-light to the negative battery terminal. locate the horn between the radiator and the front grill. Unplug the horn and test each terminal. this is where your friend will come in. While you touch the test-light to the terminals (one at a time) your helper will be sitting inside the car, holding the horn button in. If the light comes on then tell your helper to relax and you will disconnect your test-light from the negative terminal and reconnect it to the positive terminal. Now touch your test-light to the other terminal. If the light illuminates then you have confirmed that your horn is defective and needs to be replaced. If any of the above tests failed then further diagnostics will be needed. It could be suspected that wiring is damaged somewhere or something behind the horn button has failed. I hope this helps, good luck.

Keep blowing horn fuse


that is easy, a shorted horn or its wires.
there are only these ways to find it.
1: pocket full off fuses, and pull horn lug and test for blowing fuse.
2: and ammeter,.used to find it.
3: visual inspection of the whole horn wiring harness.
they also sell a fuse adaptive circuit breaker (test) so you dont need a pocket full of fuses.
4: willynilly guessing, new horn, new horn relay, then dang back to #1 or 2.

My horn is broken on my 1987 toyota pickup 4x. I cleaned the contacts on the stearing weal and it still doesn't work.


Have you verified that the horn is actually good? They do go bad from time to time. Also the horn itself may have a bad ground. To be clear i am reffering to the actual horn not the parts in the steering column.

My 2003 Lincoln ls horn doesn't work


it may be your clock spring. if your fuses aren't blown try the clock spring. you can get the directions online and buy the part from the dealership. it takes maybe thirty minutes but saves you lots of money. another easy way to tell if it is the clock spring.....does your cruise control work? if not the clock spring is bad.

Principles of Operation
When the horn switch is depressed, a message is sent from the instrument cluster via the network communication link to the front electronic module (FEM). The FEM acknowledges the message and energizes the horn relay by grounding the horn relay coil which allows the dual note horn to sound.
Inspection and Verification
NOTE: The FEM and instrument cluster must be reconfigured upon replacement. Refer to Section 418-01 .
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the horn.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

    • check that the program card is correctly installed.
    • check the connections to the vehicle.

    Horn and blinkers quit working


    Consult you owners manual or a repair manual to be certain of which fuse. Or you can always just pull the fuses one at a time until you find the one that is blown (upon visual inpection the metal inside the fuse will no longer be intact). You can also take a test light to check for operation. I prefer one of the first two methods. Hope this helps.
