Hi Anonymous, first check the wire connections to the horn making sure they are clean and tight, there is power going to it and the ground wire is securely fastened. Then look behind the horn body for a small set screw sometimes with a jam nut. This screw puts tension on the horn diaphram to vibrate alot or vibrate a little. Have someone hold in the horn button while you adjust the screw in or out as necessary. Good luck and have nice day.

    After replacing the radiator, the A/C stopped working and the horn sounds really weak.

    I find it hard to relate a radiator replacement to an A/C electrical issue. The horn could be another matter. Many vehicles have dual horns and they are located on the left and right side of the radiator area. It is possible one of the connectors for one of the horns may have been knocked loose, resulting in a quieter and off-tone sound.

    Scorpio alarm install

    With any custom application, you have to get creative sometimes.

    On my rigid custom, I'm running a Bad Boy air horn.
    Works great, but is big and ugly as sin.

    I ended up goin' old school, and mounted it under my transmission.

    You might check out that area and see it it works for ya.

    My Horn Isn't Working

    It could possibly be the relay itself or the horn. To test connect power straight to the horn, if it goes off then its the relay if not then its the horn.

    Hi. When I turn my car on the horn is sticking and won't stop. But I can still push the horn and it sounds. I have a 2006 VW Passat 2.0t

    I'm not sure I understand this. If the horn is already honking, how can you honk it? Most cars have two horns. A hi and a low sound. While the horn is stuck, open the hood and disconnect the one that is sounding. That won't fix the cause, but at least it will be quieter until you can have it diagnosed by a mechanic.

    Check the horn relay is ok,
    Check the horn ground is ok.

    Place a trouble light across the horn supply- when horn is pressed it should light up steady.
    If it lights up, the voltage to the horn is ok -then a replacement horn should fix it.

    Our EGR Cooler was replaced in late Dec 08. Would

    It has an issure you can find the date of service first recall at and read the Service bullitins for you unit. It affects the 2005 2006 and 2007 they are just learning of the problem you have described. Running with pitted heads can destroy your engine if the head gasket blows. And Not all fords are bad, just some things they find when trying to keep it right under the goverment thumb.

    The horn on my truck stopped working

    Check your fuses first for a blown fuse. Also try to recall last time you used the horn, and if it sounded muffled, quieter than normal or just not right, and if it was acting up it's more than likely the horn, wich is located under the bumper by the fender usualy. Also remove your horn button on the wheel, and make sure the wire is conected, and intact.
    Hope this helps, Good luck!
