New Horn?
Wednesday, January 23, 2019 5:32 PM
My horn stopped working. There is one wire, and it is powered when the horn button on the steering wheel is pushed. OK. It looks like I need a new horn (I didn't check for ground issue).

1) There is only one horn on these cars?
2) Any aftermarket suggestions? I saw the AC Delco OE part, but might go with a Standard Motor Products or other.


Thanks

I used a "Blazer" horn I picked up at AutoZone a few years ago, sounds like all the other for import crap down here that everyone drives.

So far it's held up well, I guess the factory location gets alot of water in the rain while driving, which led to the original horns demise.

Belated thanks for your reply. I bought a Standard Motor Products horn and installed it. It did not solve the problem. When I press the horn button on the steering wheel, the horn many times sounds balky, like there is a bad connection. I had disassembled the horn pad on the steering wheel and it looks OK. I had checked/cleaned the connection and ground at the horn. I assumed the horn was going bad because of its location and age.

I see that there is a horn relay. Is it possible that it is sticking? Can someone tell me where it is? Thanks.

As far as I found , its next to the 4 way flasher under the dash , which is on the right of the steering column if I remember. Turn on your 4 way and listen to be sure...

It's a 3 prong square horn relay .

Thanks, I will drop the cluster "under panel" and look. I wasn't sure if it was buried out on the engine compartment or perhaps over by the computer. I saw that the replacements were 3-prongs boxes.
