How do I reset the electrical system on my 2011 Toyota Tacoma after installing a new battery.


There is nothing to reset. It is likely a bad window motor (or jammed regulator) blew the fuse. The horn would be unrelated and needs troubleshooting. Try putting 12 v directly to the horn or otherwise bypass the relay. Check my tip on relays to see if you can check the horn issue through the relay socket. I can probably write a procedure for doing this, if you have a voltmeter or at least a test light. I'm game if you are.

2000 Toyota Tacoma Horn Relay location needs replacing


1- The HORN fuse is located in the fuse panel on the driver's side under the engine hood. Of course, if it is "blown" replace with the SAME size or smaller and retest the horn.
2- Verify the horn itself (isolated) using one wire attached to the Main Battery + (POSITIVE) to the spade terminal on the horn. The horn can be accessed after carefully unclipping the fasteners connecting the front grill to the radiator area- just be careful- work slowly. The horn is naturally grounded to the vehicle frame.
3- If the horn sounds with the direct bypass voltage test move to the cab. when you depress the combo horn pad/airbag listen carefully for the relay behind the left under-dash area. If you hear it, then the relay is "closing" but it still may be bad or the voltage from the horn relay is not getting to the horn. I would replace the relay. However, there may still be a wiring problem to the horn.
4- The Horn Relay for the '00 Toyota Tacoma V6 4WD I worked on was BEHIND the cabin fuse panel on the far left driver's side (oh thanks guys). I went to the trouble of pulling down this relay/fuse block- it was not exactly "easy" but I am not a beginner and had the tools and my curiosity and sleuthness prevailed. If the new relay does not fix this issue my next step is to replace the wire from that relay to the horn. Again, not easy but not impossible either. Take you time, use the right tools and materials & check your work. The only other option was mentioned earlier- drop in a new momentary switch (lighted?) into the dash and run a new wire. I would NOT use switched power so it can be used without the vehicle running... I think it is safer. This is a view of the interior panel dropped down. One of the relays can be seen- the grey cube with a empty relay socket just to the right. Why they put these here- is anyone's guess.

The starter on my 1998 4cyl toyota tacoma is stuck in the on position. The only way to shut it off is to disconnect the neg battery cable.


remove the starter relay from it's socket in the engine compartment relay box and reconnect the battery cable. If the engine cranks, your solenoid has failed closed and must be replaced. If the engine doesn't crank, borrow a 4 pole relay from somewhere else in the relay box and push it into the starter relay socket. If the engine cranks, the ignition switch is shorted to start and must be rapaired or replaced. If the engine doesn't crank, replace the starter relay. If this last case is true, you can borrow the horn relay until you get a new one. Does this make sense. Let me know if you have any questions.

Toyota Tacoma '03 horn sticks


If you are getting water in the fuse box, it could be shorting the system out and in turn the horn would blow. Some manufactures put 2 fuses for the horn too. One for the horn and one for the horn relay. That is another one, maybe the relay is bad or wet. Hope i put some light on your answer. Good luck!!
