Question about 2004 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Oldsmobile Alero and the horn has stopped working. I have checked the fuse and it looks good. I pulled the horn off and wired a button from the horn to the battery and found that the horn works fine.....I believe the problem is in the switch in the stearing wheel. I just need to know how to get to that and what am I looking for when I get into the steering wheel?

Usually it is in the center hub of steering wheel and it has to be removed to gain access. Once there you will see the spread out switch and it is possible to just clean the contacts and restore the unit back to operation. I did it with Mazda.

A common thing to fial on these- assumning the grid is ok, and wires are still attched to grid, is the rear def / antenna module. It is behind rt. rear quarter trim panel. The modules burn up, and also melt the connector. the module and connector would need to be replaced.

Power steering pump has gone out. You will need to replace your power steering.

How can you use wire going to the horn from the relay and put on a push button switch


Find the wire at the bottom of the steering column that comes down from the horn button, or locate the wire at the horn relay.. Cut this wire and splice it to a wire that goes to one side of a push button switch. Connect the other side of the switch to the metal chassis of the car, which is ground. A metal part of the dashboard frame will usually work.Then when you press the button, it will activate the relay and sound the horn.

What would be the cause of a horn not working on a 2002 oldsmobile alero?


loose connection, remove front of steering wheel and check underneath. theres a copper ring, that when you press the horn it should make contact with another copper bit . or you need a new horn (where the sound actually comes out), or the 2 wires that go into the actual horn have come loose. you can find the actual horn usually by looking under the front of the car.

Horn not working


Go to your horn and check the voltage there with a multimeter. You should get battery volts when the horn button is pressed. If you get voltage some cars have horn relays that can be changed easily.

I have a 2004 Alero. Every time I put another horn on, it gets stuck and won't stop blowing until I beat the pad on the steering wheel, by then the horn and fuse is blown out. How do I fix this problem?


Either by replacing the actual horn switch assembly or the wire that runs down the steering column. Sounds like the switch is bad but somtimes the wires short to groung causing the horn to work. Depending on how hard you beating the steering wheel could tempory fix either problem.

The cigarette lighter doesnt work in my 2004 alero


  • Better check the fuse maybe the fuse is busted. But if the fuse is good visit a good electrician to check the wires.
