1998 Saturn SC1 Q&A
1998 Saturn SC1 Question: Horn - Relay or Wiring?
Hello, I've had my car for about 3 years now, my brother had it before I did since '99. My horn hasn't worked ever since I got the car. I changed the fuse, and the horn honked once. Then I tried it again, and it didn't honk. I changed the fuse again, just to see and it snapped immediately. I figure it's a wiring problem, but almost everybody I know is telling me it's most likely a relay. Where is my relay located, and what do you other owners think it could be? - JayPe3
Does the fuse blow only when you honk the horn? If so, it is very likely that the horn is bad. If it blows when you put the fuse in, then you may still have a horn problem, but it could be the wiring too. And there is no relay in the horn system, so that isn't it. - Bret Bodas
I have a similar problem in 2002 SC1. How did you fix yours? - Visitor
The horn has a relay built in. As far as I can tell, Saturn has been the only company on earth to do this, and they didn't do it long (It's a bad idea). On a 97 SL2, it is under the driver's side headlight (which is held on by two screws). There are three wires going to it. One is 12V all the time, one is a ground, and the third is the "command" wire (hits about 0.1V when you hit the horn. The new part is about $85, but I am going to get a relay ($10) and wire it in. I've heard that is the way to go. - Visitor
