Did you check the horn relay? Or if you had power AT the horns?

So somebody put a button on the steering coluum before you bought the car? This is legal most places, I think. You will prolly have to take the steering wheel apart and look at the horn button with a VOM. The button you currently have works through the stock wiring, no?

I misread, I apologize! Listen to what Disston is asking because he's on the right path with it being in the steering wheel if the stock wiring works from a makeshift button.

I found a disconnected wire down below the column on my CV. I reconnected it but the horns still did not work. I found that my horns were corroded from not being used since it was probably new.

I'm going out on the limb and say the clockspring is broken and they didn't want to pay to have it repaired. If you have cruise control and it works, disregard. Maybe they figured they didn't want to be laying on the horn during immenent collision and have the airbag launch their hand into their face. =-)

horn wire should be a blue wire under the dash, connector should be about 6" to the left of the OBDII connector. make sure they didn't chop it, or disconnect it or anything. if you hit that wire to ground with a jumper wire, horn should work, or at the very least, the relay should click (have a helper, gonna be hard to hear from the inside. if it clicks, the horns are dead, if not, there is something electrically at fault, fuses/relay, etc.

1. I had the horn button put in temp to pass inspection.Yes, the horns work.

2. No cruise control. There was a mention of a clockspring being broken but expensive to repair. I'm sure it's something I could do.

3. Will need to check connector near OBDII. Help... Where is OBDII located? Is it near the parking brake?

Thanks for the help.

OBDII \/


It is actually a green/orange wire, NOT blue, I goofed that up, but in my pic you can see where they clearly spliced mine from removing the police equip.

Its the grey connector in the middle of the 3, on mine its that thick spliced in wire, if its all connected then clockspring probably is broken

I've found lots of discoed wires all over my car. Sometimes I never figure what they go to. It's just the way it is. Good Luck.
