I have a 2004 chevy silverado 2500 6.0l. I am having a horn

Customer Question

Hi i have a 2004 chevy silverado 2500 6.0l. I am having a horn and light issue. The customer just had a brake assist module installed for his trailer. Now i have no high beam lights or horn. I have power at the horn relay and high beam light relay but i have no power at the fuses. i can activate the lights and horn at the fuse block and they operate properly. There was a bunch of corrosion under the fuse block so i cleaned that all up but no change. Any advice?

Hi there.

Not quite sure of what the problem is... did the high beams and horn become inoperative as a result of the trailer brakes module, or is this just a coincidence?

that's why i asked you! If i answered that i would be the one getting payed. Right..or wrong? not trying to sound rude
Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 7 months ago.

I think you misunderstand... what I meant to ask was were the horn and lights working right before the trailer brake module was installed?

Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 7 months ago.

The reason I'm asking is because the horn has an independent circuit with the relay coil being grounded by the switch on the steering wheel.

I guess it'll be best if I opt out and let another expert try to help you. Please do not reply until another expert responds or the site will cycle the request back to me.

there is a ground on the left side lower beside the radiator. Check the ground first.

If you flash the high beams do you get an indicator on the dash?
