Sounds like a rely or fuse, check you manual for the fuse box location and then check the fuse for the horn. If the fuse is good, check for votage with a voltage meter at the horn when you have someone else honking it and see if you are getting 12 volt to the horn itself. If you are getting voltage then the horn itself is bad. Sometime just tapping the horn can make it start working again.

Horn Not Working


MUCH more likely, Wendy, is that the horn has burned out (they do that) or the horn button inside the steering wheel has stopped working because of corrosion (they do that, too). It's HIGHLY unlikely that any wire anywhere has been broken. It's POSSIBLE that the plug at either the horn or the horn button has come loose, though - that's a thirty-second no-parts repair at the horn, or a ten-minute no-parts repair at the button.

My horn doesn't work all of the sudden in my mitstubisi eclipse 2000 srs. I'm a women can someone help me figure this out? Wondering if I need a new fuse??


Hello, depending on where the Horn is situated you may have corrosion on the terminals. It is quite common on Imports to have the horn exposed either under the front grill or fender. Be careful when removing connections as they may snap off? if this happens then your problem is sorted you'll need replacement possibly from a wreckers? Hope this helped?

I have a 99 chrysler 300, that I crossed a couple of the wires on the box under the ignition , and it blew quite a few fuses. I checked and changed all of the blown fuses, when u turn it over it does not...


SHEENAAA! WHAT on God's green earth were you thinking?
WHY were you crossing wires??
Have you been watching that tinny remake of "Gone in Thirty Seconds"???
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE????
In thirty seconds you have managed to do 30 days worth of re-wire work at the hands of an electrical mechanic that gets about 85 bucks an HOUR! PLUS!!
I'm not a bad guy, and all of us wish we could help you in thirty seconds or less, but OH, LORD!!! Where is the Doctor when you need him?????
Intact a '99 will junk out at about 400 bucks right now.
TRY looking at ALL the fuses again and concentrate on main fuses and relays. take out EACH fuse or main fuse in the engine compartment next to the driver side coolant bottle and see, even if you have to use a magnifying glass, if there is a break in a main fuse. Spare none. Look at ALL of them, since you crossed paths along the way. ALSO: disconnect the battery for about a half- day in hopes of resetting- SOMETHING- ANYTHING. Maybe we'll get lucky. If you're a bit more technical, check the codes and PRAY for a good one, AND use a multimeter on all the repays using their own schematics. WOW. good luck and write back when you have exhausted your options. We'll try again.

1988 Ford Crown Vic Horn Relay Location


The horn relay IS NOT located in a box toward the front of the engine. It is located just behind the radiator overflow reservoir and attached to the inner fender next to two other relays. It is the only one without a plastic cover over the top of it. FYI, our Crown Vic horn didn't blow, and the cruise didn't work. I changed the relay and still no horn. I decided to check the horns themselves. Found wires disconnected from terminals. Touched wire to horn terminal and horn blew incessantly. (previous owner had disconnected horn rather than diagnose why) Pulled the horn "button" from steering wheel and disconnected the wire leads and horn quit. Disassembled the "button" assembly. Foam had degraded over time between the contacts. (Ford has discontinued this part). Cleaned and replaced foam with Scotch foam mounting squares with holes punched out over contacts (2 layers thick). Re-assembled and viola! Horn and cruise control both work! Relay was bad as was horn button.
