Horn not working!

Anyone else have this happen? Accordin to the 07 service manual, fuse 23 is for the horn, that checks out OK. Not really sure when it stopped working since I dont use the OEM keyfob, have an alarm installed to lock/unlock the doors. When I get a chance going to check for power at the actual horn. Wondering if it could have gotten disconnected somehow when I put the black headlights in, though I never fully removed the bumper to do that.

Re: Horn not working!

Well looks like the horn is shot. Ran a test light at the wire that plugs into the horn, and its getting power. Ran a wire direct to the battery an no sound. Wish the dealer would just give me the part under warranty and let me change it!

Re: Horn not working!

yup they switched my whole horn assembly under warranty too.. kinda spotty.. seemed it did it(died) when it was cold or wet outside more often tho.

Buy the ticket, Take the ride.

Re: Horn not working!

The horn seems to be in an area that really shouldnt get overly wet, and may even be a little more contained than other cars, so much just be a cheap crap horn!
