2001 VW Bug Horn was randomly honking, Now it wont work at all. Relays and Fuses are good. Should I just replace the horn itself? Not quite sure whats the issue.Want to figure out before making drive


it the horn activates randomly when driving and when the steering wheel is moved , the problem will be the ground contact under the steering wheel
there is a small spring loaded button that runs on a slip ring in the back of the steering wheel and intermittent/ random operation can be traced back to a fault in this area
the horn works so it is good , the fuses and relays are working to make the horn work so they are good ( unless there is a grounding problem with the relay causing the relay to operate and blow the horn)

My horn & volume buttons under steering wheel stopped working on my 2007 Dodge Nitro. I checked the horn fuse & others & they all looked good. Any suggestions?


Do you have access to a horn wiring diagram for your vehicle? If so, check the applicable fuses for voltage when the horn button is actuated. Even if the fuse is good, if no voltage on the fuse circuit, the circuit is still dead. Use a test light to check voltage.
Check for applicable trouble codes. There is more than one module involved with horn operation. The instrument cluster knows when you hit the horn button then sends serial data message to integrated power module, then the power module sends voltage to horn fuse.
To troubleshoot any modules, you probably need a manufacturer specific scanner to communicate with modules.
The problem could be a hard wired circuit somewhere?

The horn does not work , the fuse is ok .


Does the horn blow when you press the horn button on the steering wheel? If not I would first check the horn fuse ... then check the relay Swap it with a like relay (keeping in mind whatever you swapped it with won't work now if it is bad, or intermittant) ... owners manual will help with the locations of these.

Horn, windshield wiper not working, new fuse


Before you go to the relay--see if you can scrub the fuse holders clean (for the horn and wipers). Remove the ceramic fuses, and take a stiff bristled brush and some rubbing alcohol to the contact surfaces. Vehicles I used to restore (from the South) that had been sitting a while had green oxidation on the fuse contacts that would cause intermittent opens on the circuit.

Where do I find the horn switch on 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


 You should check to see if you have power at the horn first. If you do, you need a new horn. I believe there is also a relay involved. Sometimes these are interchangable. You can take a relay like the one for the A/C and swap it with the horn one and see if the horn works. That will at least eliminate the relay.

Hi,

As in most electrical problems, it would be required to do a bit of tracing/diagnosis to determine which is at fault. Most automotive horn system works on the same basic design. A switch in the steering wheel that energizes the horn relay that in turn powers the horn(s). A self activating horn could be caused by:
1: intermittent short in the steering wheel horn button;
2. intermittent shorting out horn relay;
3. intermittent short in the wiring.

Basing on the above possibilities, diagnostic/corrective action would involve:
a. tapping on the steering wheel (not the horn button) to see if jarring it would activate the horn, if yes then the problem is with the horn switch and often cleaning the inside/contact points of the switch should be corrective;
b. tapping the horn relay with the handle of a screwdriver to determine if jarring it would activate the horn, if yes then the problem is with the horn relay which of course would need replacement;
c. the wiring would be a bit more complicated if not time consuming. It would be necessary to wiggle the wires coming from the steering wheel/column to the main harness, to the fuse/relay bank finally to the horn to check at which point the trouble would resurface. Taping any exposed/bare/scraped wire would be corrective. It should be noted that the steering horn switch often would be "to ground" meaning the horn switch is switching the horn relay by providing the negative path, the relay is constantly supplied with B+12.

There are some instances that the horn could also activated by an alarm system.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
