i dont have horn and when i press it my headlights flare???

The horn was removed from my car but the button on the steering wheel is still there. When I was driving at night i was standing at a trafficlight with my headlights reflecting off the paint of a white suv right in front of me. when i honked out of curiosity my headlights flared.does this mean that the fuse and relay and wires are in place for the horn and are ready to be connected to the horn to function. because that would mean all i need to do is buy a horn a connect it. to have a functioning horn???????

Are you saying that when you press the horn on your steering wheel you flash your headlights? What happens when you pull the turn signal lever towads you or all the way away from you?

Haha... :lol: imagine if the horn was tied into the high beam switch... you could pull the lever to honk your horn!

we hooked up my friend's horn to his brake light switch........that was goodtimes

yeah grab a horn and give it a shot. i am curious about this, esp. since i don't have a wiring diagram right in front of me at the moment.

Behind the bumper fairly low... Mine has two separate horns, one on each side of the car. The are flat round things that look a little bit like a snails shell. Sort of a winding spiral... Which is exactly what they are. As for sparks when you honk, my advice... DON'T HONK! And I would look very seriously at what is sparking and REMOVE IT! If it is an original fuse (open top) with a break in it, it could be shorting if the break in the fuse isn't bad. That MIGHT cause a spark, but I would do as much diagnosis on that as soon as possible, because we don't want your user name to go from Traumer, to TRAUMA! HAH! I KILL ME!

Okay, sorry about that one! But seriously, get it CHECKED OUT!
Oh, but if it is just a light that comes on the the fuse box... it could be one of those fuses that have an LED in them. I think they light up if the fuse is blown, or something like that.

i found the horn and found the relay!

i found the relay and tested it and it is working fine. Thanks for giving me the position of the horn. I found it after taking off the lower bumper only 2 screws. I took it off and found a contact was like rusty or covered with like something. i guess if i can take that rust off and test the horn maybe it will work. it that doesn't work i will go ahead and get a new horn and install it. you said it has 2 horns 1 on each side! i found the right one I will now look for the left one to see if it has one on that side. I will let you know what happens.
