Q: Car horn broken

asked by on

The car horn is not working.

The horns on the vehicle would need to be checked to see if power is getting to the horns. The system has a fuse, relay, clock spring, and horn pad that may be preventing the horns from getting power. There are no problems that stand out on these vehicles, and a standard diagnostic procedure would be needed by a mechanic to find the problem. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come out to you and inspect your broken car horn.
