The horn pad supplies a ground for the horn relay ...this in turn sends power to the horn...pull the relay...terminals 30 and 86 should have power....terminal 85 should show ground when horn button is pressed. if you dont have power check fuse #6 in the fuse box under the hood...if the ground isnt there...chck for it at the clockspring...clockspring or horn bad could be bad

Sounds like your clockspring or a fuse test for power going into the clockspring please rate -jeff

Horn does not blow. hard to push on steering wheel. Fuse under dash seems to be o.k. Is horn in wheel well??


The horn/s are located on front cross-member.
Note the horn wiring diagram. The horn relay should be located in under hood fuse box, remove the relay, use jumper wire between terminal 30 and 87, the horn should sound. If it does, problem on control side of relay/coil in the picture. Usually the problem is the horn button--wiring in steering column, maybe the clock spring? Terminal 30 is hot/voltage all the time. Use a test lite to check voltage. At the proper fuse, not only check the fuse, check voltage at the fuse circuit.

My horn is not working on my Lexus 300 Es 1996


Did you check for voltage and ground at the horn connector?
The picture is underhood fuse block, see the horn fuse and horn relay? Make sure the fuse is good, also, use a testlight and check for voltage at the fuse circuit, one leg should have voltage.
If voltage at fuse circuit, unplug the relay, terminal 2 should be hot, use proper jumper wire between 2 and 3 in the picture, the horn should sound. If it does, something wrong with control side of relay. Your horn button and wiring control ground for coil side of relay. Sometimes there is a problem with wiring in steering column, for the horn.

My horn does not work on my Kia Sedona 2005. Fuses are all good. Any help out here in cyber world???


lol, yeah, I'm here in cyber world.

Did you check for voltage at the horn fuse? Even if the fuse is good, if no voltage the circuit is still dead. From the fuse, the voltage goes to horn relay. the horn relay has two sides, a load side, line with arrow head, it shows open in the diagram, when relay is energized, that line with the arrow head moves to the other terminal and carries voltage to horn.

The control side of relay looks like a coiled up line, that needs voltage and ground to energize the relay. One of the grounds for the control side of relay is the horn switch on the steering wheel.

It may be possible to use jumper wire across load side of relay, between the proper two terminals and the horn may sound. If so, I think the problem is the wiring in the steering column.

How do I wire a horn on a 1995 chev truck


Is there a problem with horn wiring in the steering column? The safest fix is to fix so the horn button on the steering will work. I'm not sure I understand your problem?

You could mount a separate horn button on the dash, but, that isn't the safest thing to do because your used to the horn button on the steering wheel.

If you mount a separate horn button, all you need is the horn ground that goes up the steering column, it is black. Find the harness under dash that goes into your steering column, black wire, just to test, use jumper wire from that wire to good ground, if the horn starts sounding, that's it. Run that wire to horn button. Also, you may need to run second ground from that horn button, if it doesn't ground through mounting bracket.

Horn not working. fuse is fine. Maybe horn relay ?


You can test the horn itself by running a jumper wire to the positive post of the
battery for a second to test it, there is a single terminal with a spade connector to touch
the jumper to on the horn.

The contacts in the steering wheel may be bad also due to the age of the vehicle.
You can unplug the horn wire and test it to see if
you are getting voltage to the horn wire when someone presses on the horn.
you can test this with a 12 volt test light or a volt meter.

If the relays are identical in the relay box, you could swap two of them around to check
relay out.
Hope this is useful

I have a 63 Ford T-Bird that I can't get the horn to work. I have checked the wires and the grounds and they look good. The horns work when I tested them also but when I put the steering column together...


You missed something putting the column back together. IDK the design of the wheel, but if all the wires to the column are good, I'd look at the switch itself in the column. Probably not making contact.

1991 ford 250 horn doesn't work can't figure out


First, hook a test light to the power wire on the horn, push the horn button, and see if you have power there. If you have power, the problem is the horn itself. Maybe even run a jumper wire to the horn, and see if it will blow. Sometimes with these older trucks, it just as easy to change the whole steering column as it is to find the problem. (if you can get a column from an auto wrecker cheap) It will likely be a broken wire in the column somewhere, ususally near where it tilts.

The horn has a short in it and was told there was a part in the steering column that is for the horn and airbag. mechanic cannot find the part.


Some vehicles do have the ring and it is below the steering wheel and provides a contact for the electrical components mounted in the wheel itself.

The steering wheel is removed to access it.

However, you could test your circuit from the horn relay. The horn switch serves to ground the relay, making it send the voltage to the horn. If you or your mechanic test from there & get a good ground only when pressing the horn buttons, and if it doesn't have that same ground when not being pressed, you've saved a lot of work. good luck

Horn not working ! it worked once then stopped any


start at the horn to see if it the wire is connected, then i would remove that wire and use a jumper wire from a positive(battery) to the horn itself and see if you get any sound. If the horn beeps then the horn itself is not the issue. check your horn fuse and relay. if you are getting power at the fuse and relay it is somewhere in the steering column. possible the horn pad itself or the horn cam. If you have have this in for repairs in the past dealing with the steering column it might not have been hooked back up properly. but then again how often do you use your horn it might have been not working for quite awhile. hope this helps.

My horn doesnt work


Once you checked the Fuse as OK ( engine compartment fuse panel, fuse #7 ) , might want to try shorting the Normally Open contacts in the Horn relay, to see if it is the horn, or the switch from the steering wheel.

Pull the Horn relay ( Ford 1/2 ISO relay ) Relay 205 in the same fuse panel in the engine compartment ). Looking into the relay socket, you will see 2 sets of pin terminals that are the width of the narrow direction, and 2 that are point the length.
The 2 pin terminals that are the direction of the narrow width of the socket, jumper with a 16/18 AWG, and the horns should sound.

If the horns do not sound, check the pin terminal #3 for +12 V DC ( hot all the time ) with a known good ground ( lug in the fender or the neg side of the battery.
If this checks OK, with the jumper in place, pull the horn connector,and check for +12 V DC on one of the pins, to a known good ground ( fender lug where the headlamps are grounded ).
Horns are behind the bumper on the passenger side, directly below the headlamp.
Next test the same, using both pins in the horn connector.
If you have +12 and ground at the horn connector, the horns are the problem for some reason.

If the horns honk doing the jumper test, work back towards the horn button / clock spring area.
Pin terminal #1 in the socket should be hot all the time, and the pin # 2 is what ground is switched to from the horn button, to activate the coil in the relay.

If you do not have ground at Pin #2 when pressing on the horn, try tilting the steering wheel all the way to the up position and try again ( some times the connector at the base of the steering wheel column pulls apart ).
If the tilt does not change getting ground to the horn relay, the next step would be to test the clock spring, but this requires removing the airbag, and really should be a professional job.
