Make sure the horn itself is grounded to the body... take off one of the screws that holds the horn to the body and sand down any paint or rust off of body and horn base so that a good ground connection can be made..

Horn on my 1991 Toyota pickup only works when steering wheel cranked hard right!


There is a small round connector inside of the steering wheel that allows the wheel to turn and the horn to still make electrical connection. It sounds like this is worn and not making good connection any longer. I would see about finding some replacement parts and having them replaced.

Where is the horn relay under the engine


The horn is in front of the grill and radiator on the drivers side it is a black disk.
The relay is int the engine compartment on the drivers side in relay/fuse-box. The name "Horn" should be on the fuse-box lid to identify what relay is needed.
Question: Is your horn only sounding at certain steering wheel positions? If so the problem the brass contact plunger in back of the steering wheel is worn out. You can buy a kit with the ring and plunger to fix that.

My horn wont work where is the fuse panel box in the cab located ?


It may not be the fuse. Your problem could be the same as I am having, there are two bushings that spin around with the steering wheel making contact on the steering column that wear down over the years and no longer make contact. I originally placed cardboard shims behind the contact surface to push it up some, worked for a little while The bushings need to be replaced when they get too short.

Most vehicles have a horn relay, which should be in a fuse box under the hood. Toyota is usually pretty good at identifying the various relays and fuses in the fuse box. If your original horn was shorted, it very well could have welded the contacts in the horn relay together. Also an aftermarket horn could be drawing more amperage than an original equipment unit, causing the fuse to burn. This last statement is purely conjecture.

Horn does not work


THE HORN MAY BE BAD. HORN FAIL FROM AGE & LONG PERIODS OF NON USE. TRY PUTTING BATTERY POWER RIGHT TO THE HORN. IF NO SOUND OR VERY POOR RESPONSE, GET A NEW HORN. IF IT SOUNDS LIKE A HORN, CHECK THE HORN FUSE WITH A TESTER, " THERE SHOULD BE POWER ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FUSE. IF THE FUSE IS GOOD, PULL THE STEERING WHEEL, THERE MAY BE A WORN BRASS CONTACT STICKING UP. PUT A WIRE FROM THAT CONTACT TO SOME METAL UNDER THE DASH, IF THE HORN WORKS YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK ON THAT CONTACT OR MAYBE THE HORN BUTTON ON THE STEERING WHEEL

No Horn


first look for your fuse panel, probably under dash, or under hood, then check horn fuse...this MIGHT work. If not locate your horn under the hood, probably in front of the radiator. if you have a volt ohm meter, just 10 dollars or so at home depot or radio shack, set it on ohms, put one lead on the negative of your battery, the other on one of the horn connections, if it shows zero (a continuity reading) that is the negative ground side of your horn then run one voltmeter lead directly from the negative battery terminal, to the negative horn connection, and have someone try the horn. If it works, great. if it doesnt take the other lead from the positive battery terminal, leaving the negaitve one in place, putting the other end of the positive on the other positive terminal of your horn. if it works, your horn is ok.

that probably means a blown fuse, or more trouble, a bad worn connection under your steering wheel, which means pulling the steering wheel and checking to see if the brass or bronze horn ring is making good contact with the steering wheel connection brass bump, or if it worn out. i had to go to dealer to get a replacement, was about $12 for a toyota, and they do wear out.

good luck

1985 Toyota Pickup Horn


Probably the switch in the steering wheel, or fuse, but usually horn fuse works other things too such as cig lighter or radio. If everything else is working fine, then to troubleshoot you'll need a testlight. I would start with the wiring harness where the steering collumn plugs in and decipher which wire is the horn wire. Put the test light clip on +power, then check the wires on the collumn side one by one, pushing the horn button on each one. The horn switch is the wire that makes the light blink when you push the button. If you try all the wires and none make the light blink, then its probably a problem with the horn switch in the s. wheel. Does it have an after market steering wheel? Because aftermarket wheels often have crappy horn switches in them. Also could be a horn relay if it has one. If you listen carfully while pushing the horn, you should hear the relay faint clicking. If you hear this, then the switch is working, but the relay might not be. Follow the sound to find it if you hear it. Test all sides of the relay with your light. Should get power constant on one term, and the other two should light when the horn button is pushed. Hope this helps. Cheers.
