Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Make sure your horn fuse is not blown. If not, you will need to scan the wiring harness. You will need a voltage meter to test the wires. More then likely, you will find the one that has no current. Check for any loose connections and visually check the wires for damage.

Have you verified that the horn is actually good? They do go bad from time to time. Also the horn itself may have a bad ground. To be clear i am reffering to the actual horn not the parts in the steering column.

The horn does not work on the 1986 Toyota pickup - what can I do?

Start with the fuse. If good, then check the wire. It is a single brown wire, horn is grounded at it's attachment point to the body, between the front grille and radiator on the driver's side. Starting there is easiest. Use a test light at the connector clip while pushing the horn button. If the circuit is good, but no sound, you need a new horn. Often times, wear and tear will cause the clip to fall off the blade contact. If the circuit is no good, pull the center plug from the steering wheel and check the circular contact ring and tab. The ring can build up gunk and also wear through, then not make proper contact with the horn button contact tab.

1987 toyota pickup lost all electrical except headlights

What works? Just headlights? Does anything electrical work that does not need the ignition switch to be in the on position? Possibly four way flashers, brake lights, horn, interior light, dash lights in instrument panel as well as headlights should all work without the key in the ignition and in the acc or on position. If this is what you have, then I would say you need to replace the ignition switch.
Hope this helps.

1987 toyota pickup horn problems

My 1987 pickup has a broken horn too. I looked into it and think I know the reason. The steering wheel has a little pin that rubs up on a metal disk, and this pin and disk are what supply the battery voltage to the horn button on the steering wheel. I can see a small gap between the two. The pin appears to have been worn away just enough that it doesn't make contact anymore. If I shove a piece of metal into the gap my horn will work. I need to replace the pin.

I only have power to one of my headlights. would it be the relay?

1987 Toyota Pickup does not use any relays in the headlamp system. If you have power to one headlamp and not the other, you have an open circuit (broken wire or bad connector) to the one that has no power.

1991 Toyota Tercel horn doesn't work?

Use your middle finger.
Or, do you hear a relay click when you press the horn button? May be the relay went bad (dirty contacts inside). Or possible lost connection behind the horn button.

1988 22re toyota pick up

You may need to pull the starter,alot of times when they remanufacture a starter they just do a basic test on the solenoid and if it checks they don't replace it.Toyota starters use a bell shaped copper contact that is prone to wear and corrosion,I drive a Toyota myself and had this exact problem.
