There's a number of possible reasons.
You don't mention if the engine turns over in the attempt, and you don't say which light is on.
A SsangYong service person can plug in a diagnostic tool to see what error codes are present.

The horn micro relay is in underhood fuse box, number 21 in the circle. Your owners manual should have this info. If you don't have an owners manual, you can look at one for free, my.gm.com
It'll ask for year--make model. The relay might not be the problem?

Hello Vason,

Is your engine light on?

If so, you need to plug in a diagnostic OBD II reader. Acquire the codes and follow their designation to determine the probable fault source.

And yes if any monitored system, for any reason, does not complete its start up cycle your vehicles ECC will not provide the green light all is well return to the diagnostic tester.

The a.i.r. Pump that injects air into your exhaust , that is driven by the accessorie belt does not push enough so there is a secondary electric a.i.r pump that pushes the extra air needed to burn off the emissions in the catalytic converter if the secondary pump is not working properly it will not pass because the convertors are not getting the extra air needed to do there job.

first place to look is at the wheel sensors and wires at those points
then run the fault codes to see if there is an issue with the abs control module

The Internet, though, has a large number of web sites where
you can buy service manuals and schematics from bookstores,
publishers, and other collectors. Here is just a sampling of
what sites are out there:

Hi there I am technology tech mechanic I work on electric and man. I come from long line of mechanics I am 5gen!!!!! No it is emc system I am betting that the heated o2 is not doing it job test them to see! It would also have to do with the obd codes for the future the obd codes just tell you bout were to start or what is the bigger problem with the system! Bench test the o2!!!!! Have you check the mass flow sin. Check out the injects they may be taking air you can just test with a spay bottle and leave car at idle and spay them make sure you are not putting to much but if you see it take in water and you can hear from the motor too!!!! Also do the manifold and all vac lines and pump and if the is you will see and hear it here is my email address let me know what you find out and if you need anything else or need steps to test ill give you my phone number if need be so that you can get the car fix! God bless you and good luck hope that I hoped you out but for real let me know what happen

Sounds like a problem with the key switch.

HVAC Compressor Controls Circuit Description
The operation of the A/C compressor clutch is controlled by the body control module (BCM) and powertrain control module (PCM). The BCM receives an a/c request signal from the heater a/c control assembly through circuit 66. The BCM then sends a class 2 serial data message to the PCM through circuit 1807. Power for the a/c compressor clutch relay is supplied by the A/C BFC fuse and circuit 439. When the PCM receives an a/c request message from the BCM, the PCM grounds circuit 459 allowing the a/c compressor clutch relay to engage. Ground for the a/c compressor clutch is supplied through circuit 450.
Do you know what a class 2 serial data message is ?
Class 2 data is a high speed data transmission. In order to control serial data line traffic, class 2 uses the peer to peer method along with message arbitration in order to manage the data line traffic. The class 2 data line includes the following control modules:
The body control module (BCM)

The electronic brake control module (EBCM)

The powertrain control module (PCM)

The sensing and diagnostic module (SDM)

You need a factory scan tool to diagnosis , it's the only way to see if transmission is sent an received !
The intake air temperature (IAT) sensor is a thermistor which measures the temperature of the air entering the engine. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) applies 5.0 volts through a pull up resistor. When the intake air is cold, the sensor resistance is high and the PCM will monitor a high signal voltage on the IAT sensor signal circuit. As the intake air warm, the sensor resistance becomes lower causing the PCM to monitor a lower voltage. If the PCM detects an excessively high IAT sensor signal voltage (low temperature indicated), DTC P0113 will set.
Test the signal circuit of the IAT sensor for a short to voltage. Refer to Wiring Repairs in Wiring Systems.

any make that you want . most are just as good as the next brand .they say the synthetic lasts longer is about all

It goes to 2 or 3 places to grease transmissions sets: to gear, to differentials.

fuse for horn on a 2001 malibu is located under the hood.
there is a fuse (15 amp) in slot #43
and there is a relay in slot #21
if you remove the relay and put it back in wrong the horn will not work.

If the AC system is properly charged you may have a controller/button problem,BCM problem or possibly a wiring issue. Very hard to pinpoint this problem without doing diagnostics

2000 Chevrolet... | Answered on May 10, 2015

This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.
