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.

Make my horn honk


I looked at info for a Silverado 1500. Use a test light to check for voltage at horn fuse in under hood fuse box. According to this diagram, the horn relay has to be energized. Have a helper hit the horn switch when you check voltage at horn fuse. If hot, have to check wiring circuit to horn. In the diagram, dark green wire is voltage and black wire is ground. You could actually use jumper wires from battery for voltage and ground to horn, for testing.

My horn won't work on my 2007 Uplander. Checked fuses, and wiring and everything is fine. What could it be?


This is caused by a loss of connection in the coiled ribbon contact under the steering wheel called the Clock Spring contact. Before you remove the steering wheel to replace this contact drum you MUST DISARM the Airbag system. Failure to disarm the system can result in serious injury or in rare cases *****.

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.

02 caravan horn not working.. checked fuses and relay and theyare good. Any ideas?


The horns being made and used today are not so very good. If you had access to one, you might try a used one, particularly if it were cheap. You would need to be certain that horn worked before trying it on the car.
A person with an volt-meter or a multi-meter could see if there is any electricity getting to the horn when you push the horn button. That would tell you if it were the horn, or something else.
You should also check the ground wire from the horn to the body, as the electrical components are no longer grounded to the frame, they now have a ground wire.
Many cars of today have the horn button and the air bag in the steering wheel together, so some shops will tell you it will cost up to many hundreds of dollars to fix the horn because the air bag is part of the horn system.
God bless your efforts.

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

Car horn doesn't work, airbag light on, but car alarm works


The problem is likely with the clockspring in the steering column. The wiring for the horn button and the driver's air bag go through the clockspring. If you want to fix it yourself, I can probably find the procedure for you, but this is really a job for a professional auto electrician.

Horn may be bad or switch on the steering wheel. The way to check either would be with a 12V light or meter.
