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 10 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 10 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?
