If you did apply power directly to the horn and they don't repsond or just "buzz" then you need new horns.

2008 Sebring convertible horn won't work is there a fuse for this?


disconnect the battery and check the wires that connect the horns. If corroded, clean them up with crocos cloth. Connect the battery back up and try again. If they don;t work, disconnect one horn at the terminals and set the multimeter to VDC on the lowest setting and have someone press the horn. If the needle deflects, they your horn driver is (speaker) blown and you'll need to find replacements. There are usually two horns; one high octave and one low. Some cars have a fuse for the horns. Even if it looks good, replace it as it sometimes hard to tell.

Horns not working,original relay 43yrs old !


You hear clicking at horns, and not the relay? Maybe the horns went bad, or maybe you need to check and clean the connections there.
Don\'t know why the cab light went dim, unless the horn wire was trying to make contact?
Yes, TJ, the horn wire should be hot. You are grounding that hot wire when you press for the horn. That hot wire comes from the coil side of the horn relay. Press for horn, it grounds the coil side of relay, and the relay can pass power to the horns.
Now back to the clicking no-honker horns: power gets to the horns when relay is energized, and there has to be a good ground for horns to work. I don\'t know if your horns are case grounded or a wire from horns goes to ground, but check the ground there. If case grounded, pull horns off and clean the ground. Also might try a known good horn. Keep at it, sounds like you are almost there.

Touran horn not working changed both but still no joy


A horn circuit first must have power so check your fuse. Then it goes through the horn switch (on the steering column) then through the horn relay and then to the horn itself.

If you changed the horns did you check to find out IF the horns were getting DC voltage to them first? If you don't, then it is either the switch or the relay.

I a upgrading my horns on my toyota hilux invincible 2008 the kit comes with a relay. Does the existing horn circuit have a relay already because it is powering 2 horn already? or do i have to add this...


The relay is to allow the new horns to draw full power from the battery. They won't be nearly as loud if you don't wire it the way they suggest, and you may still blow the fuse.

Horn doesn't work


Check the fuses. Check the relay for the horn.Check the connections to the horns. There will be 2 horns disconnect both. Use a test light ground it to the battery and stick the probe in the wire connector for any of the horns. Have someone press the horn button. If your getting power the test light should light when the horn button is pressed. If it does? You have wither bad grounded horns or bad horns period.
If the test light doesn't light? You have a problem in the steering column remove the steering wheel and you will see in there a plastic ring with a copper or brass button that drags on another ring to power the horn button. these pieces ware out and the spring loses its tension. This is a common problem with Ford Trucks.
Good luck
Please give me good feed back of somekind for me on here.

I have a 96 explorer xlt v6 has alarm that works thru the horns. the horns quit working checked fuses in dash no burnt ones looked for horns or horn under hood could not locate where they were. doug


The horns are located on the left side of the radiator
support. To check them, use a jumper wire from the
+post on the battery unplug the horn and touch the
wire to the horn contact. If it toots check the horn relay in the power dist. box on the left fender. Also
check fuse #4 a 20amp fuse in the same dist box.
But if the horn won't toot replace the horn. If none of
the things I've mentioned pan out. You can get back
to us and we'll dig a little deeper. Good luck.

Volvo S60 2005 horns not working


Remove the wire connector from each horn and attach a voltmeter or test light. Have a helper push the horn button while you check for voltage. If there's no power getting to the horns you have to work your way back to the relay checking for shorts. If there is power try holding the horns metal mount against a good ground like an engine bolt or the sub frame. And with wire reconnected have your helper try the horn again. If it sounds then clean rust away from mounting bolt and car (rad support or grill bracket), and look for a loose or broken ground strap to the rad support (from either the battery or engine). If both horns still don't work either they're clogged with snow or dirt (bring them inside to defrost or clean out), or they need to be replaced.
