    The horns on my 95 Park Avenue don't work. Jumped the horns off of the battery - they work. Changed the horn relay. Pulled the steering wheel apart and checked everything. Checked the horn buttons. Horn still doesn't work.

    We bought a Buick Lesabre CS 4 Door sedan from a Dealer in Florida

    Unfortunately we did not check if the horn was working and now the just tell us it would take $1,000 to fix the horn and we bought the "car as is and with all faults" The car runs great except we don't have a horn.

    Does any body have any idea how this problem can be solved?

    All happened when air bag light came on. I checked the fuse for air bags and they are not burnt.

    The rear air bag on the drivers side is collapsed and ruined how hard is it to replace the bag

I think he may have just bent the connection that activates the horn. Does it honk when you turn the wheel one way or the other? Try that and let me know what the out come is.

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima and my horn don't work


you may have a problem with the clock spring or spiral cable as nissan calles it. it is a part of the air bag system and also horn signal runs into and out of it.if that part is bad, your air bag light will flash and your horn will not work. has anyone been doing any repairs inside of the steering wheel?? it may just be unpluged. if you are going to tackle this your self to look inside of the steering wheel, make sure you disconnect the battery for at least 3 minutes, befor you start playing with the air bag. you dont want to blow it up.

Horn doesn't work


Sounds to me like the horn pad has lost the insulation internally,when you turn the wheel the contacts touch.
