Hi, Anonymous first check for continuity at the power and ground wire at the horn, then check for continuity at the horn button, back in the day there was a small adjustment ***** on the back of the horn, by turning it one way or the other you could set the limit on how much the diaphragm vibrated.

Horn is out on a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero limited. What parts needed to fix it?

check horn relay works
get a 12v probe and test the horn switch works when pressed
12v should be supplied to the horn relay coil contact when the horn switch is pushed on.
Also check the fuse.
Check voltage going to horn when pressed
horn might be negatively switched so 12v positive is on one side of horn and relay switches ground negative .
You will find the horn relay under the bonnet in a relay compartment most likely

Where is my steering column grounded. My horn does not work when ignition switch is on

Your horn should always work, key on or off. 1999 Accord uses a horn relay. Horns themselves going bad is not uncommon.

My horn WILL NOT work

Where are you connecting the tester to? If you are connecting one lead to the negative terminal on the battery and the other to the horn wire and it lights up try connecting a wire from the horn housing (bare metal) to the negative battery terminal and attach the horn wire to the horn and try it. if that works the ground path from the battery to the horn mounting place is broken somewhere. you may have to run a negative wire to the horn mounting place to make it work properly. Hope this helps.

My car horn only have 1pin but the new horn 2 pins how to make it work

the extra pin goes to ground. Cut the connector off the new horn, and connect it to the battery to determine which polarity sounds good. Then solder a terminal on the negative wire and make it long enough to reach a chassis ground point. Cut the connector off the old horn to use for your new horn's positive wire. OK?

No Horn

first look for your fuse panel, probably under dash, or under hood, then check horn fuse...this MIGHT work. If not locate your horn under the hood, probably in front of the radiator. if you have a volt ohm meter, just 10 dollars or so at home depot or radio shack, set it on ohms, put one lead on the negative of your battery, the other on one of the horn connections, if it shows zero (a continuity reading) that is the negative ground side of your horn then run one voltmeter lead directly from the negative battery terminal, to the negative horn connection, and have someone try the horn. If it works, great. if it doesnt take the other lead from the positive battery terminal, leaving the negaitve one in place, putting the other end of the positive on the other positive terminal of your horn. if it works, your horn is ok.

that probably means a blown fuse, or more trouble, a bad worn connection under your steering wheel, which means pulling the steering wheel and checking to see if the brass or bronze horn ring is making good contact with the steering wheel connection brass bump, or if it worn out. i had to go to dealer to get a replacement, was about $12 for a toyota, and they do wear out.

good luck

Boat horn not working; fuse is good

TOOL NEEDED (1) DC test light or probe. TROUBLESHOOTING (1) generally a horn just has two wires positive and negative. Test negative by connecting dc test light negative to the negative on the back of the horn. use positive side of dc test light and touch a known positive connection. dc test light should light if not. find clean know ground for horn. Test positive by connecting neg side of dc test light to a know negative connection. use positive side of the dc test light and touch positive side of horn. test light should light up when you touch the horn switch. if dc test light does not light take a jumper wire and connect one side of jump wire to a known positive connection. take other side of jumper wire and lightly touch positive side of horn connection. horn should beep. if horn does not beep replace horn. if horn does beep test and or replace horn switch.
