    Had it happen to me one time, I wiggled the wires at the horn and it solved my issue. Haven't had a problem since.

    Or sometimes the diaphragm on the horn will not vibrate. There maybe a screw on back of horn to adjust. If you have a test light remove connector and probe wire and I bet you will have power to horn but it will not sound.:s

    If you have a screw for adjusting horn go easy they are plastic on newer horns. You can run a hot wire to horn and ground the horn, if it works it will sound off right away, eliminating the button as the problem

    Hello again

    Well here's what i did. I disonnected the leads to the horn and put a multimeter on the wire leads and pushed the horn button and i got 13.0 volts. so that is good. Now hooked a 9 volt battery to the horn. and no sound. so now i guess i need a horn. I will take the horn apart and see if that adjusting screw will work. Thanks all.
