Sounds like the horn itself is shorted out. You didn't mention if the blown fuses were a result of using the horn. A horn in construction is an electromagnet acting on a diaphram; if the electromagnet develops a short, it causes an overcurrent condition and will blow the fuse.

    I forgot to add that if you have a shorted condition in the horn that you repeatedly addressed by changing fuses, the short could have burned through the coil and caused an open condition. If that is the case, the horn still wont work, but you wont blow fuses. In either case, it sounds like your horn needs to be replaced.

Where do i find the horn fuse box on a gmc sierra a 2002


There isn't a fuse. Just a relay. Either the relay is dead ( not likely) the horn is dead ( most likely cause) Or the steering electrics is bad. ( most likely on this is the plastic piece inside the steering wheel has broke)

I have a 1994 GMC Sierra 1500 and the horn doesn't work, i tried the cab fuse bow but no fuse there, where would the fuse be for the horn if there is one?


engine compartment relay box. There is also a horn relay there.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check to check the relay and socket. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Check fuses first. If thats OK, could be a problem with the brake switch (down by the pedal) or the wiring.

Either the horn itself is bad or the horn switch is bad in the steering column. Try running a hot wire straight to the horn to c if it works

Hi, can you tell me how to reset the change engine oil light on my 2002 GMC Sierra 4X4 1500 PU. I changed the oil two weeks ago. Thanks, Gene


with key on engine off depress accel pedal 3 times within 5 secs. You may have to repeat the procedure several times for the reset procedure to complete. dont stomp on the pedal. Slowly depressing seems to work best.
