      I need help too

      Anyone got a link to the horn install or diagram?

      I was told the horn and alarm are different.

      There are two horns located under the driver side headlight.

      Are these both the drive horns?

      The alarm horn is under the cowl below the window on the driver's side.

      Can you hear the relay "click" when you push on the alarm button?

      Yes faintly.

      Actually the alarm works fine.

      I can hear the click when I push the horn.

      I assume that you've checked the fuse? Next I'd check to see if you're getting power to the horns.

      Luckily, the horn is never required to drive the car.

      Yes, but it is required to get and inspection sticker.

      But if can hear the relay click doesn't that mean it's getting power?

      The horn actually works 1/100th of the time but not loudly.

      I was going to measure the voltage @ the horns and see if there is any juice getting there.

      I hope it isn't behind the airbag. There's a great video for removing a 3 spoke steering wheel but not a 4.

      If you can hear the relay "clicking" then I don't know how the problem could be in the steering wheel. I suspect that the horns are just bad.

      One of my horns came loose so I took it out completely and the one horn works fine for everything it's just more high pitched

      There's voltage going to both horns. Guess they both went @ once.

      Thanks for the help...
