    could this also cause the check engine soon light to come on and stay on?

I had the same problem. There was a recall on the part (clock) within the steering wheel. Go online to Dodge, see what they say and then take it to an authorized dealer, send your bill to them and you will get reimbursed.

Tengo una isuzu hombre 97 no m funciona el claxon cambie la bocina y no funcion? q hago?


english please.
is car the Brazil HOmbre? ours is different. here. in USA.

we are USA english forum
horn is dead, 1997 Hombre.
check the fuse yet,that is always first, marked HORN it is.
a 20amp fuse.

the horn is very simple. but the path it follows is complex
(due to steering wheel turns, complications in all cars made)
first off is air bags if car has air bags , working on horn parts in dash will be dangerous, so defeat air bags first. !
the FSM book tells how to do that. read that. and do that.
be safe.
so you can test the horn on a battery, hot wired. just like a light bulb. same test. but why would both horns fail>?"relay"
clean the horn base grounds so its not rusty.
sure one horn rust, ignored then 2nd rusts and owner acts.
you can check the horn relay, or replace it.
the check the horn relay coil for 12vdc across the coil of relay while honking, 12vdc honking, if 0v, that means the horn switch in the steering hub is bad or the airbag, clock spring contacts bad (danger area)
the horn button grounds a wire. to energize the horn relay.
it only takes a volt meter to test all this.
got one?
other wise it's a gue$$ing game.

our car (USA) is:
"In 1996, Isuzu replaced its Pick Up with a version of the Louisiana-built Chevrolet S-10, the Isuzu Hombre, based on the Brazilian market S-10"

so will answer for S10.
this car has 2 horns if both are dead, check the relay

using a volt meter,
i honk the horn and the bottom of the coil in relay below goes to 0v
from 12v.
if its not 12vdc to begin i check the top of coil there.
if that pin is 0v, the fuse is blown, good looking fuse can in fact be bad. we test fuses. not guess.
if you honk the relay closes, (can be seen or heard to close)
click?
if the relay does click, then he bottom contact below goes to 12vdc
if not the relay IS BAD.
the below horns grounds are missing , error in the manual.
the horn bases are grounded. to the car body. if not they will be dead.

Toyota 1998 4cyl truck horn how to fix


horn dead, how to fix it?
replace the horn fuse yet for 25cents?:
You can guess, and replace horn then relay then switch.
you can learn to use a voltmeter and not guess.

2 choices there. or get it serviced.,
any volt meter:
1: meter leads across horn contacts (body and pin)
12v honking, horn bad
2. METER on horn relay (if it has one)
it has 4 pins, 2 are coil and 2 are contacts.
coil has 12v honking but no output is a bad relay
if no 12vdc across this relay coil ,means big trouble in the steering
wheel or air bag, clock spring failure or horn switch before that.
now , do not play with air bags in the zone (dash)
or you will be hurt if it deploys.
you must defect the bags first per the fsm the factory service manual tells you how to do this and not get hurt. read it. and win.

login to alldata.com and read
or buy a real FSM and read how to fix the horn, it even has a chapter
called Horn.

FSM = factory service manual

Horn not working, air bag light stays on.


the horn is more than likely a relay or fuse. But the air bag should be checked by a pro, these can be deadly!, it could be a sensor. the air bag will not work when the light is on

Horn doesn't work


i would check the ground out inside the steering wheel before anything else. these can get bent or broken off during a good panic honk or during a fit of roadrage. once ok'ed i would have a helper with a test light or volt meter check the system as you honk the horn to find out where the voltage stops. where the voltages stops will be the problem

Air bag light is staying on after starting vehicle and the horn will not work either on my 2003 chevy tracker there were working fine until the other day. I have checked all the fuses and replaced the horn...


Likely the "clockspring" in the column has broken. Get a manual and follow it very carefully if you intend to do the repair yourself.
If you don't follow to the letter, the air bag can/will deploy in your face while working. Both chilton and haynes manuals have instructions.
Good luck and be careful!!!

Horn dont work but it still honks for the alarm.


First, make sure the fuse is ok. If it is, you'll have to inspect the horn contacts under the air bag. If you have to remove the air bag, be SURE to read up on the procedure before working with or removing the air bag!

The horn is not working on my 2001 gmc 2500hd pickup the fuse is good and I changed the relay with onw from an aftermarket auto parts store is it possible I need an original realy from a GMC dealer, if not...


The horn itself may be bad as hooking a jumper wire from the battery should get it to honk if *** does the horn button in the SRS may not be making. Is the check engine light on when driving or the SRS yellow light on? ( air bag )? If the horn doesnt work and the airbag light is on you can have a clockspring problem These are under the sreering wheel and allow the turning parts to trun and still be connected to the car but turn too far they'll break and the air bag and the horn both won't work. This is a pro area of the car to be working on as the air bag system mishandled can hurt the repairman very baddly as your not in normal driving position while working on it. Just cause the warning light is on doesnt mean the bag won't go off ! ! The relays seldom fail and new parts store ones are fine too

THE HORN NO LONGER WORKS WHEN YOU HIT THE AIR BAG.THE HORN USED TO WORK TO EASLY WHEN YOU JUST LIGTHLY TOUCHED THE AIR BAG THEN THE HORN WOULD SOUND WHEN YOU TURNED THE WHEEL MY FATHER PUNCHED THE AIR 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.
