The alarm is connected directly to the hooter, but the steering has a neutral (earth) which is switched when you depress the pad. You must remove the pad and check the system,either it has a like ring/disk with a carbon brush or micro switches. but all that does is earth the neg side of the hooter.Maybe the wire is off somewhere between the hooter and the harness where it goes into the firewall.

How do you troubleshoot the horn


if your horns work with alarm using remote, then fuse and relay good if you hear no horn using remote set off alarm,and horn pad dont work, replace horn fuse and relay, if both okay, you have to replace the whole horn pad with air bag in steering wheel both horn control pads and airbag is one assembly.

I have a 2001 dodge durango. the horn works when i set the alarm but does not work from the steering wheel at all.


The horn has power all of the time but does not go off untill it is grounded. The switch in the steering wheel is the ground when you press it completing the circuit and sounding the horn. The alarm does not use the steering column or steering wheel ground path to "beep" the horn, it uses its own ground. The problem then will more than likely be in the steering column, steering wheel switches, or clock-spring. The clock spring is not for the clock. It is a spiral-wound wire set that allows the steering wheel to turn and not bind up the wires going into the steering wheel. It is called a clock-spring due to the "spiral" wound design of the connector. The horn ground wire in the steering wheel gets its connection through this clock-spring, so it may the source of your problem. It would require some electrical diagnostics to verify the actual point of failure.

Where is the horn relay located on a lincoln 2002 ls v8. horn blows where alarm is press...but it will not work when i press the horn button insided the car?


If the alarm makes the horn work, then it is not the relay.
It is the horn contact or slip ring.
You need to take the cover off the steering wheel center.
But this could be dangerous due to air bags.
Disconnect battery first.
Steering wheel might have to come off.
Recommend a shop because most people don't have the tools for pulling steering wheel.

1999 Durango 5.9 horn doesn't work from steering wheel but does when setting the factory car alarm. (I assume it's the same horn.)


If it is the same horn, there is probably something in the area where you push to activate the horn. The horn itself is obviously working so there is no fuse problems, most likely your problem is in the steering wheel.

Horn works when you hit the alarm button but dont work when you hit the horn from the steering wheel


Check the fuses first, the alarm is likely wired in after the fuse for the horn switch on its own fuse. If it is not the fuse it is either the horn switch itself (inside the steering wheel) or the wiring. If the alarm was installed at the factory when the truck was made it is most likely a fuse, then the switch. If the alarm was installed aftermarket it is most likely a fuse, then the wiring where the alarm was spliced into the horn wire, then the switch. Get back to me if this doesn't help.

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.

when I had that problem it was the contacts under the steering wheel pull the steering wheel and you will see a copper ring the horn is connected to ground out that copper ring against the steering column if the horn sounds you have a worn contact I fixed mine by putting a spacer under that copper ring good luck with it
