You most likely need a new clock spring rotating contact under the steering wheel, it is a plastic ribbon with wire in it to connect the horn button and other accessories to the steering wheel while allowing the wheel to turn.

SOURCE: location of horn on 1998 Hyundai Accent

hi not aware of whether or not you solved horn problem? ie location but for info you will find horn just in front of the crossmember in front of radiator (where the bonnet closes onto ) horn is on the nearside looks like a disc secured by a nut+washer it has a plug on wire connector ps these horns are prone to fault but you might try tapping the horn gently with horn operated/pressed you can purchase a more reliable wind tone/horn and fitto same bracket and replace the terminalplug to connectors for new type easy diy check E BAY for hornes on car accessories ? hope this helps?

no/ you have 2 horns your right about that but its one wire connector for each horn usually one horn on the right and the other on the left/ the horns should be slide in connector and if he cut them for one doesnt seem right/ I bet that was the problem he tried using the same wire from the original horns when he kind of grounded the horn so it would not work / but there is only one wire per horn/ Please rate my response/ Thank you very much

SOURCE: Need connector block connections for horn wire,relay to button.

The horn switch provides a ground. If you have no voltage at the horn wire, inside the steering whel, I would suspect a bad spiral cable, or clockspring under the steering wheel.

Diagram should be on the inside of the fuse box or relay cluster lid/cover. If Test light has 1 wire and a sharp tip? Yes, but only if you push the horn button too ;-)

My guess is that the horn lost its ground, but you can check this with the light. The horn only beeps when both GROUND and Pos 12v are present. The horn button gives the relay 12v to close, and the relay gives the horn 12v to operate. The ground is always connected.

Connect tester clipwire to 12v source (battery, headlight (has to be on) and touch its tip to metal of car. Does it light? Good. the tester is working and the 12v is a good source.

Touch one of the 2 horn connection or wires (poke it thru the plastic - why tip is sharp). Does it light? Touch the other, does it?

If both light, (1 will be brighter) we can assume the horn coil is good and it is getting a good ground and I was wrong (it happens... but not often). The side that is BRIGHTER is the ground wire side.

Now have someone mash the horn button. Do you hear a tiny click? That is the horn relay. If not, look for the horn relay fuse and replace it. If you DID hear the click, the relay coil is good and is trying to switch 12v to drive the horn.

Now is time to locate and replace the horn fuse or the relay may have bad contacts. Look at the other relay part numbers in the cluster and see if there is a match for the horn one. Swap it out and try the horn.

Hope this all helps. To 'test' the horn, touch the dim side again anf listen for a scratching sound. That is the 12v going thru the tiny bulb in the tester (a resistance) and trying to drive the horn.

Good Luck!

This was not a horn problem neither was it the relay but the contacts within the steering wheel that got stuck, u need to have this opened and poped back into position such that when not depressed there wont be any contact.

Looking for horn fuse on toyota sienna 1998


Hello Edelways.
The horn fuse and the horn relay are in the left front under hood fuse/relay box.
This is a location diagram and the inside of the box. Sorry about the size of the diagrams. They don't allow us much space here. The fuse and relay should be marked in the fuse box lid.

Horn wont stop cant locate fuse


The fuse block is located below the dash and mounted to the fire wall. This area is where the brake pedel is located. If you still can't locate the fuse, open the hood and the horn is located behind the grill. Remove the wire from the horn. To fix the problem correctly it's possible that the horn relay is stuck closed which is why the horn blows. A wiring diagram will show the location of the relay. Most relays snap into the holder.

Horn doesnt work


Lift the hood of the truck. Locate the fuse box and lift the cover. Check the horn fuse listed on the cover of the fuse box. If the fuse is blown replace it. Have someone press the horn and listen for a faint click from the relay or swap the relay with another one with the same part number (IGN or AC) to test the relay. If you hear a faint click the horn switch on the steering wheel is good. If the horn works after swapping it with another, the relay is bad and you should order a new one. Remove the horn connector and check the voltage with a 12 volt lamp connected to the two wires or a volt meter when someone presses the horn switch. You can also directly wire the horn to the battery to see if it sounds. If it does not sound the horn is defective. If you do not have voltage check the black ground wire on the horn connector to see if it has zero ohms, or if you connect the 12 volt lamp from the black horn wire to the +12 of the battery the lamp should light. If not your ground wire is bad. I hope this helps you find your problem, but if you have any questions post a comment and I will answer your question.
