2001 malibu horn fuse and relay are located in the under the hood fuse box.
location 21 should be the relay
location 43 should be the fuse.
if the relay is put in wrong the horn will not work. if you replaced the relay and the horn stopped working try pulling the relay out and turning it around. and try the horn again.

SOURCE: My 2006 Malibu steering wheel is going bad.

The power steering is electric on that car. It has a electric motor on the column, and a control module. There are several causes that could be the problem. You need to have it scanned to get a better idea of what to do. If you can give me the codes you get then I will be glad to advise you on what's best. Good Luck

SOURCE: I have a 69 camaro the problem is the horn does

On most early U.S. cars the horn button only provides a ground for the horn relay , which is located on the firewall under the master cylinder , if you can gain access to the back side of the horn button I would ground the wire to see if your horn honks . If not check for power at the horn relay . I would invest in an assembly manual/ service manual from any of the many camaro restoration companies as it could provide insight on future problems

SOURCE: How do you fix the

a few possibilities.
Low power steering fluid. check for correct amount on pump filler measureing guage.

Loose power steering belt. check to see if the belt slips over the power steering pulley while trying to turn the steering wheel. may need an assistant.

last, but most expensive. Rack and pinion steering bar is defective and needs replacing.

Horn will not work 1992 geo metro


Easy problem.
1. Find the horn.
2. Disconnect the wire to the horn.
3. Apply voltage from the battery to the horn via a jumper cable.
4. No sound? Horn is bad, replace it.
5. Horn sounds? Horn relay is bad, find it and replace it. Could also be the horn switch in the steering wheel. With horn disconnected, push on steering wheel and listen for the relay to click. No click? then you have a bad steering wheel switch or no relay.

Or take the car into a reputable service shop. Taking your steering wheel apart is difficult, probably not something you want to do on your own.

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.

Horn won't work


Did you pull the steering wheel off the shaft? If not, you won't be able to tell anything. Sounds like the cable going through has been worn through/broken. Likely wore through until it touched something, which set it "off" but still intact, then your tugging pulled it enough to completely break what little was still intact. Should be a very simple wire splice once the steering wheel is off (that's the hard part).

Bought an 2004 honda accord and the horn does not work. What is the procedure for repairing this issue?


simple circuit, but can be hard if problem is switch in steering wheel. First check fuse and relay at fuse box. relay should click when horn button on wheel is pushed. If relay doesn't click, either button or relay is bad. If relay clicks, test for voltage at horn. You can use a simple test light available at the auto parts store if you don't have a voltmeter. If there is voltage at the horn, replace horn.
If relay does not click, replace relay to see if that fixes your problem. If new relay doesn't fix, you have a bad switch in the steering wheel or possibly bad wiring. cannot help you with switch as it's different on every car. any questions--let me know.

2000 SERRIA, HORN WILL NOT WORK WHEN YOU DEPRESS THE HORN BUTTON, WILL SOUND OFF WHEN YOU PUSH THE ALARM BOTTON, WHAT IS THE SOLUTION. JOE, POQUOSON VA.


If the horn works with the alarm button but not with the steering wheel horn pad the problem is most likely in the contacts beneath the steering wheel. This requires pulling the steering wheel and repairing the contacts.
If this vehicle has an air bag in the steering wheel make sure to deactivate the airbag circuit before pulling the steering wheel.

Horn not working


Horns have power to them all the time. When you push the horn button, you are completing a circuit by providing a Ground.


Before the horn gets it's power for the 2003 Pontaic GrandAm, the power goes through a Horn Relay. (Number 21 relay)

It may be a bad relay, horn slip ring contact button, (Located under steering wheel), or bad horn/s.

The horns are located up under the front air dam, tucked up close to the air conditioner condenser. VERY hard to get to.

1985 Toyota Pickup Horn


Probably the switch in the steering wheel, or fuse, but usually horn fuse works other things too such as cig lighter or radio. If everything else is working fine, then to troubleshoot you'll need a testlight. I would start with the wiring harness where the steering collumn plugs in and decipher which wire is the horn wire. Put the test light clip on +power, then check the wires on the collumn side one by one, pushing the horn button on each one. The horn switch is the wire that makes the light blink when you push the button. If you try all the wires and none make the light blink, then its probably a problem with the horn switch in the s. wheel. Does it have an after market steering wheel? Because aftermarket wheels often have crappy horn switches in them. Also could be a horn relay if it has one. If you listen carfully while pushing the horn, you should hear the relay faint clicking. If you hear this, then the switch is working, but the relay might not be. Follow the sound to find it if you hear it. Test all sides of the relay with your light. Should get power constant on one term, and the other two should light when the horn button is pushed. Hope this helps. Cheers.

1995 Prizm Horn Problem


keep the steering wheel in one spot, do not rotate,  check horn by pressing pad in different areas.  If it is intermittent then horn pad is concern.  If it works well trying slowly turning steering wheel while pressing horn pad if there is a point in turning the wheel where horn becomes inop, then the common fault is the horn contact ring inside of the steering column
