If you are getting a clicking noise when you push the button, that means that the switch in your steering wheel is getting 12 volts to the relay. that is a good thing as the switch in the steering wheel is the bear to work on in the system. Either the horn itself has failed, or the relay is popping but the contacts have failed and the 12 volts is not getting to the horn. Horns are cheap used at junkyards and not really very expensive at a parts store. The horn is most likely near the radiator, behind the front grille. Looks like a horn, circular horn shape with an opening. You may have to get the grille off to get at the horn or maybe you can get at it from underneath. Make a jumper cable out of an old extension cord, just strip and bare the ends of the wire. Have someone hold on set of bared ends to the battery terminals while you hold the other ends to the connectors on the horn which you can see after you pull the plug off. If the horn honks, then it is good and you need to get a new relay. If the horn does not honk then you need a new horn. Usually just one bolt takes it off. You might have a 3 or 2 wire unit so make sure you get the proper replacement. I always get one out of a junkyard You know it is an exact fit if it came out of a similar car so no drilling or fabrication required.

Where is horn located on 2003 chevy caviler


Horn(s) are typically located under the hood, behind and near the headlight assembly. It is not uncommon for a horn to stop working over time. It is also not unlikely that horn button in the steering column fails. To verify that the button is working, get the car to a very quiet location. Turn off all radios, blowers, etc. to make the car interior as quiet as possible. When you press the horn button, listen for a "click" noise from under the dashboard. This is the horn relay. If that happens, you know that the button(s) in the steering wheel are ok. If you don't hear the click, then the horn button or the horn relay may be the cause of the horn not working.

2005 sierra horns stopped working. I hear a click at the fuse box under the hood when i press horn. I know horns are good as i wired them direct. is there another fuse somewhere other than in the fuse box...


The click you hear is the horn relay -- this likely has either dirty / corroded connections or burned contacts inside the relay. If cleaning all relevant connections doesn't solve the problem, replace the relay. You can find the realy by having someone push the horn button while you track down the click.

I have shorted out the electrical system in a 1998 mercury mystique. I still have somethings like the horn, headlights and dashlights but not the power locks, windows, brake lights, signal lights etc. \it...


Check all of the fuses located in the black box under the hood close to the battery on top of the inner fender. All power to the car begins there. Check for large fuses 30 amp to 60 amp. Make sure the heater fan is left unplugged. When working on components under the dash always disconnect the ground cable from the battery

I have a 89 golf, horn doesn't work but it makes a clicking noise when the horn button is pushed any ideas to get it to work?


Your horn buzzer is either broken, or it is not getting power. The click you hear is the horn relay. It is good that you can hear it.

To diagnose the problem, locate the horn module. It should be behind the grill in the front of the car. Remove the power wire. Get an assistant to press the horn button while you measure voltage in the connector. If you have voltage, replace the horn. If not, find out why there is no voltage. It could be a blown horn fuse or a broken wire. Good luck.

1996 Saturn SL. Horn doesnt work. Fuse is ok. Can't find horn under hood.


it is behind bumper drivers side. I believe there is a relay in the horn, making the horn unique and origional replacement required. if it has three wires in it then it has built in relay.

My horn on a 1998 ford zx2 has stopped working. The fuse is fine.


The horn(s) burn out very easily, also there is a relay, press the horn button repeatedly and listen for a click noise (it may be under hood), if you don't hear it the relay may be at fault, if you do the horn is burned out, not uncommon.

Horn broken. Not the fuse.


It depends on if the relay makes a clicking sound. This will help you figure out your problem. Everything between the horn button and relay is good if it makes a solid click sound when you press the horn button. So then the problem is in the power side of the circuit. Usually the relay contacts or horn.
And then if there is no click that means the problem is on the control side. Which is the steering-column wiring or horn buttons!
