Horn not working after car alarm went off

My car alarm went off and as I don't have a remote for it, I was unsure of how to dis-arm my car. I ended up driving while the alarm was still going off before finally realizing that I needed to lock/unlock the car with the key. Now, however, my horn doesn't sound at all. Help is appreciated!

Test for power and ground going to the horn. If it's getting power and ground, the horn is bad from running for so long

sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff

SOURCE: Malfunctioning car alarm 98 honda accord

For the system to arm, the ignition switch must be off and the key removed. Then, the multiplex control unit must receive signals that the doors, hood, and trunk lid are closed and locked. When everything is closed and locked, none of the control unit inputs are grounded.

The door switches, hood switch, trunk lid switch, door lock knob switches, and door lock cylinder switches are all open. Ten seconds after the doors are locked with the key or the lock knob, or immediately after locking the doors with the remote transmitter, the system arms.

If anything is opened or improperly unlocked after the system is armed, the control unit gets a ground signal from that switch, and the system is set off.

If one of the switches is misadjusted or there is a short in the system, the system will not arm. As long as the control unit continues to get a ground signal, it thinks the vehicle is not closed and locked and will not arm.

An alarm that sounds for no apparent reason may have been set off by a switch that is on the threshold of misadjustment. In this case, it may only take a significant change in outside temperature, the vibration of a passing truck, or someone bumping into the vehicle to make the alarm sound.

SOURCE: car alarm goes off for no reason

I had this same problem just today.Hhowever, I had the remote in my hand and it would not stop the honking!. Since I could get into the car, I released the hood, opened the master fuse box on the left side, and pulled the fuse labeled "Horn Relay".(On the upper left, there are three large, black, square fuses, it is the third and is labeled in the lid). I waited ten seconds and put the fuse back in, no more alarm, no more infernal honking.

I have a 2016 Chevy trax. When I arm the car it would beep. It doesn’t beep now. Can you tell me why. I prefer the beep


Does the alarm work other times, If not check the alarm speaker connector, horn & all of the fuses, how does the remote work? If all is well sounds like an electrical short or bad alarm horn.

Car horn doesn't work, airbag light on, but car alarm works


The problem is likely with the clockspring in the steering column. The wiring for the horn button and the driver's air bag go through the clockspring. If you want to fix it yourself, I can probably find the procedure for you, but this is really a job for a professional auto electrician.

On my 1999 Subaru Outback, the horn beeps after I lock using the keyless remote. The problem is intermittent - hard to tell when it is going to happen. It gives two short beeps (Beep......Beep) then


This is a tough one, it sounds like the alarm is arming itself when you lock the door, the alarm system is arming , there is a way i think to cancel out the horn chrip, the only other thing is the door lock is bad or the alarm module is going bad. Did the horn always chrip or beep before and do you know if the alarm works?

1998 Pontiac Bonneville, Horn & Lights go off for no reason


leave the car unlocked to see if it does it. it sounds as if the bcm is defective or perhaps a door sensor. is the car kept in a garage? check to make sure you don't have animal prints on the car. sounds wierd, but an animal can shake the car just enough to trigger the alarm. then by the time you get to the car it is gone.

My remote does everything its suppose to do but i cannot figure out how to arm my alarm system!


Check the owner's manual; many factory alarm system self-arm after a limited time-out. And, a combination of buttons on the remote will often select either silent arming or a horn-beep/light-flash to let you know.
If you want to check if it is armed, you could always use the flat hand on your hood after you think it is armed with the remote.
