How does the horn work?

Most passenger vehicle horns are electrically powered, and mounted near the inside of the front bumper. When the horn button is pressed, electricity is allowed to flow through the horn circuit, through the fuse and relay, and into the horn. Once there the electricity is converted to sound waves, and the horn sounds.

What are the symptoms related to a bad horn?

Failure of the horn will simply result in loss of horn functionality, or a weak horn sound being emitted.

Can I drive with a horn problem?

A failed or ailing horn should not affect any other components. However, horns are legally required safety features, and may cause the vehicle to fail a safety inspection if inoperable.

How often do horns need to be replaced?

Horns rarely fail on newer vehicles, as they have no moving parts. A frontal collision, or salt and water intrusion from inclement weather are more likely to cause the horn to fail than age.
