It depends on if the relay makes a clicking sound. This will help you figure out your problem. Everything between the horn button and relay is good if it makes a solid click sound when you press the horn button. So then the problem is in the power side of the circuit. Usually the relay contacts or horn.
And then if there is no click that means the problem is on the control side. Which is the steering-column wiring or horn buttons!

Mine was having the same problem. The fuse was fine. We tested the horn and it was fine. turns out the wires had broken where it connects to the horn. Stripped them and reattached, they just push in. Then I wasn't getting a good ground, so I changed the location of the horn and bolted it next to the battery. Works fine now.

Make sure the horn is hooked up. there should be 2 wires connected to the horn either under the car or under the hood.
if that doesn't work you need to take it in to a shop and have them look to see if the point on the steering wheel and the horn mechanism behind the wheel are making contact.

How do I get the horn to work and rear defrost? Is it a fuse related problem?


The horn and rear defrost are on two different circuits. There will be a fuse for each. Most common problem on SUV,s for the rear defrost is a broken wire on the glass grid of the rear window. As for the horn,it could be caused by a bad horn/fuse/horn relay/horn pad/broken wiring. You need to disconnect the wire to the horn and use a test light to see if there is power at the horn when the horn button is pressed. If there is power, the horn is bad. If no power, any of the afore mentioned could be the problem

Horn wont blow


Check for blown fuse first. If fuse ok, you will have to check for a power and ground supply directly at the horn itself. Possible causes are... defective horn...blown fuse.... defective horn relay....defective horn pad.... defective clock spring..... broken wiring. There is a lot of electrical diagnostics that need to be performed to make this simple horn operate

Where fuse location for horn ?


In fuse block. Ok, that's a smart a** answer. Not sure where the fuse block is located on your vehicle, but usually under dash left of steering column, or under hood on inner fender, or in glove box, or? Using a flashlite you can often see which fuse is blown by eyeball. If not, remove one at a time and examine. Other reason for horn to fail is horn relay bad. If only one horn fails, bad horn. Both fail = relay or fuse or broken wire.

V50 horn doesn't work


Press panic button on the remote to check if horn is broken or if the switch in the steering wheel does not work.
Also check fuse for steering wheel module.

Horn dosen't work


Check fuse. Usually located under the Steering wheel or under the hood. You will have to use the other side of the cover to determine which fuse controls the horn and see if the metal link is broken. If both are not blown its probably a short in the wire. If it randomly just happened then its a good first guess without knowing any further details.

Usually I check all my fuses any time I am looking for a specific one. Sometimes a random fuse can be the cause, and not the actual Horn fuse that is blown.

Horn not working


With something like this it's most likely a fuse burnt out. There is a fuse box located under the hood as well as inside the Jeep. Usually the lid has a map describing which fuses do what. If not, there should also be a map in your owner's manual.
1.Find the fuse associated with the horn and check if the metal piece in the middle is broken.(like a light bulb)
2.If its broken, replace with a fuse with the same amp rating. (number on the side/color)
3. If it still doesnt work than the connectors to the horn or the horn itself need replaced. The horn is usually located behind the grille or front bumper. It kind of looks like a black plastic snail usually.

I have a 89 golf, horn doesn't work but it makes a clicking noise when the horn button is pushed any ideas to get it to work?


Your horn buzzer is either broken, or it is not getting power. The click you hear is the horn relay. It is good that you can hear it.

To diagnose the problem, locate the horn module. It should be behind the grill in the front of the car. Remove the power wire. Get an assistant to press the horn button while you measure voltage in the connector. If you have voltage, replace the horn. If not, find out why there is no voltage. It could be a blown horn fuse or a broken wire. Good luck.

Horn wont work.i check the fuse in the door and


Maybe horn became unplugged. Put 12 v power to horn make sure horn works. Put test light on terminal on horn have someone press the horn button, if light comes on and horn does not blow you may need new horn. if light does not come on you may have bad contact at horn button, blown fuse, broken wire, bad horn relay or possibly just a bad ground.

Fix this please


If your horn doesnt work either you have to remove the steering wheel and there is the connector for the horn/cruise control. If nothing broken there, check the clock spring too!
