Horn blows a fuse when horn is pushed


More than likely the horn itself has a shorted coil.

How do I stop horn blowing


Pull off the wires!
The horn will actuate from a relay which is one of the little black boxes on the fuse box. The power to this relay is usually supplied through a fuse, which will also be on the fuse box, and will be clearly marked on the fuse box cover. Pull the fuse or the relay and the horn will cut out.
The most probable cause of the horn blowing is a short on the wire from the relay to the steering wheel, or possibly the wiper contact on the steering wheel. Don't confuse "wiper" with the windshield wipers. it is a small copper finger or carbon brush that makes contact between the horn button on the wheel with a slip ring under the wheel, which in turn is connected to the wire running to the relay.
With modern cars, however, it is a bit of a gamble getting the steering wheel off, since the air bag could be in the way, and the last thing you want is to set off the air bag while you're working on the steering wheel. An airbag is basically an explosive device which can cause serious injury, so if you are not OK with doing such work, take it to a service agent.

Horn won't blow in my 2001 toyota corolla


CHECK for bad grounding of horn itself, rust and oxidation may not allow it to ground, also try "jumping" a wire from battery to horn, if it blows horn itself is good, contacts inside steering wheel button may be bent flat, or wire bad..

Horn will not blow when I push the buttons on the sterring wheel


check the power to the horn with a test light.have someone push the horn button and look for power at horn.next listen for a click sound it will come from the horn relay if it is working.find the horn and apply power to the horn and it should honk.if not replace horn.other wise there is a contact in the steering wheel that it touches .that ring or contact might be at fault.or relay if no click heard.

Horn blows constantly, doesn,t blow the fuse or anything else. can this problem be outside of the horn blowing assy. on the steering wheel? it,s a 2000 galant. problem occurs all the time if the switch is...


  • The horn relay might have welded contacts (stuck in the on position). Pulling the relay should stop the horn.
  • The wiring harness on the steering column might have a broken wire to the horn relay shorting to someplace that applies power to the relay. In this case, turning the steering wheel all the way to one side or the other may stop the horn, and it won't sound when you press the horn button.
  • The horn button in the steering wheel is stuck on or shorted.

The horn not workingI


The metal plate in reference above has small copper contacts. If they do not meet the horn will not work. We used a dremel on ALL of the contact point and it made no difference, the horn still only works about 5% of the time. After a whole lot of testing (I have the same issue with my 2000 Toyota Sienna) we found that the ground is weak, too weak for the relay most times. At this point I am going to run an alternate ground by "borrowing" the wire for the mute button for audio controls through the clock spring. The existing ground connects to the steering column. Before we discovered this I spent $285 on a new clock spring :(

2000 SERRIA, HORN WILL NOT WORK WHEN YOU DEPRESS THE HORN BUTTON, WILL SOUND OFF WHEN YOU PUSH THE ALARM BOTTON, WHAT IS THE SOLUTION. JOE, POQUOSON VA.


If the horn works with the alarm button but not with the steering wheel horn pad the problem is most likely in the contacts beneath the steering wheel. This requires pulling the steering wheel and repairing the contacts.
If this vehicle has an air bag in the steering wheel make sure to deactivate the airbag circuit before pulling the steering wheel.

The HORN Is a GROUND CONTROLLED BUTTON you need to FIRST Check under CENTER STEERING WHEEL Cover to see if it has a Bad Commectiot, After Asuring this there Is c CLOCK Spring UNDER Steering Wheel that is Fairly Common for Failing.

The FOB / Remote Utilizes a Different Part of the Curcuit to Activate Horn, I Hope this Helps you With your Problem as Im Sure of All that I Advised. Remember to RATE ME !!
