If I need to start taking the steering column apart or dash, I am going to defer to my mechanic. Was just hoping there was something else I could easily check other than the fuse.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok, so when I unplug it, how do I apply power, from what?
Mechanic for Honda: MASTER TECH, Honda Technician replied 2 years ago

well their is two ways to do this.

1 is to use a volt meter or test light to see if their is power at the horn.

or the other option is to remove the plug and make a jumper wire that will reach the battery so you can power the horn up by touching the wire to the positive battery post .

Mechanic for Honda: MASTER TECH, Honda Technician replied 2 years ago

this is why a volt meter /test light is important so a simple voltage check and rule this out and then the repair is pretty straight forward .

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok, I will be back. Thanks for the test instructions. If I can get a meter, are there instructions for that?
Mechanic for Honda: MASTER TECH, Honda Technician replied 2 years ago

if you got the volt meter it's a simple test you will check power on the wht/grn wire.

so as someone hold's the horn button you will check to see if their is power on the wire,if you have power then replace the horn as your getting power and the horn simply failed.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
