There is no power to the horn contact on the steering column. There is power to the fuse, and the actual horns do work with direct power. Horn does not work from the steering wheel.

I need a fuse diagram for a 2003 saturn vue. the horn started blowing and wont stop


The problem is under the Horn push ,in the steering wheel/column. Somewhere the contact plate connection has detached, and is making a direct supply contact to the Horn feed wire, when the ignition is On...As a temporary emergency bypass, remove the power supply wire at the Horn.

I have changed all fuses and relays pertaining my horn. How do I check the actual horn to see if the horn itself isn't working?


Disconnect the plug from the horn and using a negative and Positive wire that you run directly from the battery make contact with each on the horn contacts. The horn should sound, if it doesn't the horn is bad. If it does and it still doesn't work from the button on the steering wheel, since you have replaced the fuses and relays already, the horn button on the steering wheel is bad.

I have a 63 Ford T-Bird that I can't get the horn to work. I have checked the wires and the grounds and they look good. The horns work when I tested them also but when I put the steering column together...


You missed something putting the column back together. IDK the design of the wheel, but if all the wires to the column are good, I'd look at the switch itself in the column. Probably not making contact.

HORN DID NOT WORK SO WENT AND GOT A FUZE PUT IT IN NOW THE HORN STAYS ON WHY IS THAT?


A fuse always blows for a reason. The reason your fuse must have blown was because of a short to ground in the horn switch. That means the power side of the horn switch is currently touching ground or metal or that the switch is bad on the inside. The more remote possiblity is that you have a short somewhere in the wiring harness. It is always typical for a component to go bad before a harness.

Here are some notes directly from chrysler, let me know if you need any clarification:

Testing and Inspection Notes WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIR-BAGS, REFER TO AIRBAGS AND SEAT BELTS/AIRBAGS BEFORE ATTEMPTING STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Remove the lower steering column cover/knee blocker. Check for continuity between the metal steering column jacket and a good ground. There should be continuity If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, refer to Steering and Suspension/Steering Column and check for proper installation of the steering column mounting nuts.
  2. Remove the driver's airbag module. Unplug the horn switch wire connector. Remove the horn relay from the Power Distribution Center (PDC) . Check for continuity between the steering column half of the horn switch feed wire connector and a good ground. There should be no continuity If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, repair the short circuit as required.
  3. Check for continuity between the steering column half of the horn switch feed wire connector and the horn relay control circuit cavity for the horn relay in the PDC. There should be continuity If OK, go to Step 4. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.
  4. Check for continuity between the horn switch feed wire and the horn switch ground wire on the airbag module. There should be no continuity If OK, go to Step 5. If not OK, replace the faulty horn switch.
  5. Depress the center of the airbag module cover and check for continuity between the horn switch feed wire and the horn switch ground wire on the airbag module. There should be continuity If not OK, replace the faulty horn switch.

Why would the horn not work?


This is usually caused by a defective contact under the steering wheel for the horn button to the harness in the steering column, the contact is called a clock-srping rotoating ribbon contact, this is the most common problem.

Usually the wire from the steering wheel is Green w/Red and the wire to the horn from the fuse box is White. There is only one fuse, sometimes shared with the emergency lights. Check to see if there is power to the horn itself with a volt meter.
