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.

There is usually only 1 wire to the horn from the steering column, via a relay. Disconnect this wire and run a bit of wire from the positive terminal of the battery direct to where you took the wire off. The horn should sound. If it does, then you know the horn is ok and the fault is probably the relay , broken wire, blown fuse or poor connection in the horn circuit. If the horn doesn't work, then you know that the horn itself has failed.

The horn on my 2010 Santa Fe stopped working. Any suggestions or help

when pushing on the horn pad you may hear a click noise this tells you the circuit is good from the horn pad to the horn relay and out to the horn. find the horn and check for power at the horn terminal when the horn pad is pushed. if it lights up then replace the horn. if it doesn`t then you will have to check for a wire problem from the horn back to the relay. but horns are usually the problem.

Put fuse in for horn, horn stays on

You need to check the horn buttons and/or connections in the steering wheel. I've added an exploded view of your steering wheel and related parts. If you do it yourself, be sure to dis-arm the SRS (Airbags) systemc586d4df-4fe5-47f0-ba7d-6e15c3fe0a87.jpg

Horn will not sound pride hurricane

The horn is a a small peizeo horn. You can generally get them at radio shack. The horn voltage is 24v. Before you run and get a horn, you need to see if the horn accidentally was disconnected due to a bad solder joint or the wire had been accidentally pinched and cut from a previous service. This horn generally does not go bad. The button on the dash is usually the culprit. While you have it apart you need to look at the button closely. The best way to check this this to have the scooter on and touch both wires in the bottom of the switch with a screwdriver and see if the horn sounds. If it does, replace the switch. If it doesn't, then it is either the horn or a bad circuit. Depending on how comfortable you are messing with electricity. You can apply direct voltage from the batteries with a jumper wire and see if the horn works or you can use a voltmeter to check the circuit. I usually just use the jumper wires. It's fast and easy. If horn works then it's in the circuit, if it doesn't you have to start with replacing the horn.

Volvo fl 10 lorry truck horn problem

Disconnect the horn and put a test light to it to check for power. If the wire is getting power then you have a bad horn. If not, then you have a bad horn circuit. Test the horn by using alligator clips to run power and ground to it. If it works, you need to backtrak the horn circuit to find the problem.

If the wiring is not supplying power, the problem is usually in the steering wheel.

Xjr1300 1999 horn will only make a low pitch noise when button is used

check the connector to the horn. Ensure no corrosion...if it looks can this...
Yamaha horns usually have 2 wires...a hot wire (pink) to the horn and a black wire returing to the the horn button...the button grounds the circuit to sound the horn.

You can also jumper the horn black directly to ground and turn on the key...if horn is loud have poor connection in your horn button wiring or ground.

If it makes no difference jumpering and horn is not wet inside....probably the horn is bad. Some have an adjustment nut in the center that can be adjusted to alter tone somewhat....worth trying before tossing horn.

The horn on my 2003 Mitsubishi spyder has stopped blowing. I suspect an electrical problem as, recently, one or both of the horns would work PART of the time. Is this common?

Horns are pretty simple in their operation. I would more suspect a horn relay. I am not very familiar with your vehicle, but usually due to the electrical current used in the horn circuit, most manufacturers run the circuit through a relay. An easy way to eliminate your horn is to simply run a wire directly from your battery and touch on the horn contacts. The horn should sound when you touch the wires onto the horn terminals. Hope this helps.
