While some modern car horns are actually specialized computer audio systems, the old-fashioned electromagnetic car horns are still common. An electromagnetic horn uses an electromagnet to attract a steel diaphragm and turns that electromagnet on and off rhythmically so that the diaphragm vibrates. In fact, it uses the diaphragm's position to control the power to the electromagnet. Whenever the diaphragm is in its resting position or even farther from the electromagnet, a switch closes to deliver electric current to the electromagnet. The electromagnet then attracts the diaphragm's center. But when the diaphragm moves closer to the electromagnet, as the result of this attraction, the switch opens and current stops flowing to the electromagnet. Because of this arrangement, the diaphragm moves in and out and turns the electromagnet off and on as it does. The diaphragm's tone is determined by the natural resonances of its surface.
Electrical problem, Bad button/horn.
I think the fuse is not good
Most mechanics would agree that if your car horn does not work, there are no large problems with the car you should be worrying about. Consider the car horn to be an extra item, not connected to a cars engine or main mechanic system. A car horn is however, important to communicate with other drivers, so it is very important to stop by a mechanics, oil change, or even tire retailer to get the horn fixed.
I invented the car horn
My 1995 town car horn does not work, sometimes it work one times when I start the car. I have a 1994 Town car and my horn and cruise only work when the adjustable steering column is in the lowest setting. Haven't figured it out yet.
A horn might not work on a 1996 Honda Accord because of a blown fuse. There is also the possibility that the wire was cut or damaged. The horn is part of the security system. A used car might have the horn wire cut because the previous owner was annoyed by the horn blaring when someone came near the car.

Check the fuse which is located in the box where the relay is. If that's ok, there's a good chance the horn is no good. If you push the horn on the steering wheel and you hear the relay clicking, it's definitely the horn OR a bad connection at the horn itself. The horn is located on the driver side of the car in front of the windshield washer resevoir, behind the bumper and can easily be accessed from underneath the car. Good Luck.

My horn on my Plymouth Breeze was under the front manifold of the car. Have a friend or family member get inside your car and honk the horn as you listen for it. I would advise wearing ear plugs though, unless your car horn doesn't work. If it is not working then look under the manifold in the grill slots, and also maybe underneath the manifold. I have seen them there before too.
your car horn is located inside your transmission
Fixing the horn on this car will depend on what cause it to no longer work. The fuse may need to be replaced, the wiring, or it may be the clock spring.Ê
