  • Horn Doesn't Work

    The horn on my 2000 Silverado went out the other day and I'm not sure how to fix it. I checked the fuse panel and I didn't see a fuse labeled "horn" like my old truck. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix the problem???

    Dad's 2000 Suburban had some corrosion where the horn plugs into the wiring harness. We took the horns out, cleaned them up, and they work fine now.

    Hope that helped a bit.

      ah fahk. i hope its not your horn button itself. one time on mine (OBS, no airbags) the wires just came off. idk how, but they were off. so i pulled off the horn cap and put them back.

      no idea how to do that with an airbag. fahk.

        my truck has airbags and i think u can still do that? Cuz i disconnected mine cuz when ever i was backing up my arm would hit the button and it would honk (so annoying)....yah could be Corrosion on the connections, or horn wires came unpluged just by vibration (bumpy roads) the wires can pop off.

          You checked the fuse panel under the hood? There is one that is along side of the driver dash also. Mine was under the hood, it was a larger black block, and not the typical 2 prong plug.

              Ahh, I forgot there was a fuse box under the hood, I just checked the one on the side of the dash. I'll also check the wires to make sure they're still pluged in and not corroded. Thanks for the help guys!!!

                you probably got a dead horn then if the relay checks out.

                      Yeah I had a blown fuse on my '01 2500. It seemed to only happen when it rained out. Come to find out later while talking to the dealer about it, that water can enter into the horns and damage them or cause them short out. I guess GM has a shield available now to install around them to avoid the problem from repeating itself (they're not free)....needless to say at the time, I didn't have time to do it myself, and had them do it, cost me a bundle as they replaced the horns w/ OE GM ones as well as installed the shields. Seemed like it was about $200 total.
