could be either. or a fuse.
It could be the relay or the fuse or the horn itself. Or, it could be all three!
You have to determine the cause first. Check the horn switch and contacts, fuse, relay and the horn itself.
To start with you have to determine the reason the horn has failed. Check the fuse, the horn relay, the horn switch/contacts in the steering wheel and the horn itself. Once you have found the cause then you can fix it.
could be horn relay in underhood fuse box. or bad horn..
It is in front of the radiator and the horn itself can be bad.
An electrical short to ground.
Check to see if you are getting power to the horn itself if so it may be bad Could be horn relay Could be horn switch Replace with an auxilliary switch on dash
It could be the horn relay which is typically located in the fuse box. It could also possibly be a defective horn switch which can be checked at the proper relay pin location. You will need a service manual for the proper pin location. The wiring could be bad. Or it could just be the horn itself.
A loose wire would cause the horn to stop working on your Dodge Avenger 2.4L engine.
See if you are getting power to the horn itself-they have a tendency to fail If not it could be relay or switch at steering wheel
That depends entirely on what's wrong with the horn. It could be a problem with the horn relay, in which case you simply replace the relay. (Under the hood, in the fuse/relay box next to the battery) It could be a problem with the horn itself, in which case you simply replace the horn. It could be a problem with the horn switch, which is a part of the steering wheel. If that's the case you'll need to replace the steering wheel or horn switch. It could be a problem with the horn wiring, in which case you'll need to track down the specific problem and repair it. Good luck.
check the horn relay or the horn itself!
It can be a bad ground, bad relay, bad connection, wire, steering wheel horn switch, fuse or even the horn itself could have failed. You'll have to track it down.
Then you have a short in the wiring, the horn button is defective, or the horn itself is defective.
Many times the horn itself could be bad; if you have power to the horn and no sound, replace the horn. I would get one from a salvage yard for $10-15. Roll down window. Hollar real loud "LOOK OUT!"
possibly in the steering wheel itself, " in the button " or wires connecting to it, fuze would'nt affect , horn maybe bad but doubt it,
Horn ProblemBlown fuse, defective horn, defective horn switch, or loose wire. Check your fuse first. If that doesn't appear to be the problem, then you have to troubleshoot. I think that I would start my troubleshooting right at the horn itself. I would run a hot 12v lead from the battery terminal to the horn and tap the terminal to see if the horn responds. If you do not hear the horn trying to honk. I would replace the horn. You might also want to have someone press the horn button while you hold a 12v test light on the end of the horn wire at the horn itself. If you have power reaching the end of the wire, then the problem is surely the horn. You may want to check to make sure the horn is properly grounded as well. It is a pretty simple circuit and its most likely to be a blown fuse or a bad horn. Some other things that could cause this is a short in the horn circuit, most likely inside the steering wheel cover. If you do not have a blown fuse and you have no power reaching the end of the wire when the horn button is pressed, then you should disassemble the steering wheel cover and observe the horn wiring inside for any breakage or corrosion.
Most likely a blown fuse. But, the horn itself can be defective.
A loose wire or a blown fuse would.
If you have power and ground at the horn when activated, the horn itself is bad it needs to be replaced. If you don't get power or ground it could be faulty wiring that would need repairing or a relay if it has one (1998 model did and its in the passenger compartment fuse panel). If it has a relay, swapping it with a similar accesories relay, I.E. a/c, to check. If get power to the horn the realy is bad and needs replacing. If you still don't, yo can apply power and ground to the horn to check it. If it works the wiring is faulty.
usually a stuck horn is caused by a bad horn relay.sometimes it is the horn switch itself sticking.even rarer is a faulty horn that becomes stuck. try the relay.
You have a bad clock spring ( the wiring assemble behind the steering wheel ).
the horn relay switch is in the fuse panel or it should be on the horn wires itself
