Well your choices are numerous. you could get a replacement factory ampo but it is pricey. your best bet is to get a 4 channel amp and tie that into the system before the amp

Horn stopped working, replaced relay fuse and still no sound. Where is the horn located on a '96 monte carlo?

You will find it on the passenger side and underneath the car near the front tire well. If you lay down and look up from under the bumper you should be able to see it. Let me know how you do.

96 monte carlo. I unhooked the stock radio and now neither my stock radio or my aftermarket radio will work in the car

Sounds like you may have touched a positive wire against the body of the car and blown a fuse
Check your fuses in the car and normally there is a fuse behind the radio in a plastic casing

The volume or maybe the speakers in my 2002 hyundai sonata stopped working. Radio still comes on but no sound. What can I do.

if you happen to have a speaker available, try to test the stereo. plug in a speaker and see if it works. otherwise, i don't really like this method but, it does work... unlug your factory speaker and plug a 9v battery to the speaker, if you hear a little popping/wizzing sound, the speaker works and it's the head unit.
also, check to see if the radio has an amp. sometimes the radio will be operational, but the amp isn't and that is the problem. and the easy solution is to replace the radio with an after market of choice. factory radio's that are purchased seperately are rather expensive.
