Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.
Double check the horn wire and make sure it didnt get pinched or cut when the new spiral cable was installed.If the fuse is back in its original position (double check this as well) I dont see the horns failing or the horn relay when the spiral was installed.If the fuse is good and back in place properly and the wire is o.k. let me know as we will have to do some electrical testing to locate the fault.
Do you have a test light or multi meter to test electrical with?
Can you locate the horn relay located in the under hood drivers side fuse and relay panel.If so tap on this relay and see if the horn works then.If it does then this relay needs replaced.If it does not we will have to do some electrical testing to pinpoint the fault.
My info is not showing a great picture as well of this relay.It looks to be next to the light control circuit.
This info below shows how the horn circuit works.The horn pad triggers a ground signal through the spiral cable contact to the horn relay then out to the horns.If the fuses are good there is a good chance this relay did not fail when the spiral contact was replaced but that either the spiral contact was faulty out of the package and needs replaced again or that it may have been damaged when it was installed.
It is possible the relay was failing as it is one of the most common problems for horn issue and then when the horn went off when the wire grounded during the repair this may have permanently damaged the horn relay to where it needs replaced now.It is usually fairly cheap less then $30 for the relay but my info is not showing me the exact location of it.If you purchase one from a parts store or dealer they should be able to point out where it goes exactly on your model here.
I apologize for the delay.Unfortunately I don't have the exact location of this relay.I will open your question up for others here to see if anyone else can assist further on this.I hope this can be resolved with ease.
Please click on this link and let me know if it matches your fuse diagram, the horn relay is at the lower right hand corner.
