Its fairly simple. First, you'll have to remove the old horn. There will be a cable you need to remove, with a locking snap, like every other electrical connection in the car. Remove that, then proceed to remove the retainer bolt from the horn's mounting arm. After you get the old horn out, save the screw that held the arm in, and re-use the arm if it fits on the new horn, but it probably won't.

If you bought a generic horn, you'll need to cut off the wire connector, and solder on whatever connectors the horn uses. This is a pain, as the wire isn't long enough to bring down and solder.

Once you've soldered the connectors on, mount and connect the new horn in the same place the old one was located. Check the fuse, and test.

The horn sits under the front of the car, and it's bolted to the "frame". Undo the wires that are on the old horn, and remember where the came from so you can put them in the same order on the new horn. If you have the correct horn, the same wiring configuration should work, and you just bolt it on.

Answer 1Yes, but... you will need wire heavy enough to carry the current [measured in Amperes or Amps] that the horn uses, and also need to install a control switch in the circuit or the horn will sound continuously. The hookup is simple: one horn wire to the Positive [+] terminal and the other horn wire to the Negative [--] terminal.It would also be a very good safety practice to install a properly sized fuse in circuit to protect the conductor wires.

If it's just the horn itself...$20 buck for the new horn. install it yourself with the Haynes repair manual, Dodge Neon 2000 thru 2003. Book #30036. The horn is under the passenger headlamp.

if the horn is already there and is bad, just disconnect the two wires on it, unscrew horn, remove it and reinstall the new one and reconnect the wires. If you don't have a horn, then find a suitable place under the hood and drill X number of holes. The switch is wired in series with the battery and horn. The button is placed at a convenient place you can get to it when you want to blow the horn.

If you're just adding a second horn that sounds at the same time as the original equipment horn - you will need to cut into the wire that leads to the original equipment horn in order to get power to the added one. Install the additional horn making sure it is securely grounded. Then, splice the power line to the new horn into the power wire to the existing horn. This will ensure that when the horn button is depressed, both horns will receive power simultaneously.

The same way you would any other horn the bass blocker go's on the positive terminal. and put the positive wire on the other end of the bass blocker. and then put the negitive wire on the negitive terminal of the horn

the horn is not in the steering wheel only the switch to make it workis in the steering column note if you didnt know horn is not in steering column, u would be better off getting a mechanic to fix it

User Avatar

all you have to do is remove the 2 bolts where the motor mounts are which should be right above the horn. after removed take the bracket off and replace bolts and you will have successfully removed the horn assembly.

Buy a new one, uninstall the old one, install the new one.

Connect the positive lead to the battery or a spare positive terminal at the fuse panel, run it to the switch with an in-line fuse, run from there to the positive terminal on the horn. Mount the horn and connect the ground wire to ground on the chassis.
