How do you use the horn?

You might not use your horn very often, but it’s an important safety and warning tool. Sounding your horn can alert other drivers to your presence, warn of potential dangers and more. It’s also used in your vehicle security system. To use your horn, just press the center of the steering wheel (you’ll see the horn icon here as well).
