Well my horn wont beep, took it the mechanic for inspection, he wont pass it. If it is a fuse the mechanic couldnt find it, he didnt know which was which cause the fuses weren't marked. Can you tell me the particular fuse he would need to change IF that is the problem. ALSO, IF its not the fuse, what else could be the problem? JESSICA : ?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi jessica ,
im sorry to hear you mechanic could not find a fuse , lol

thats too funny but anyway the fuse for the horn also runs you interior lights , so if they arent out chances are its something else , like a horn relay or the horn itself , or the turn hazard headlight switch assembly
here is the fuse location the box cover should be marked with this but its for cig,,,, look at the pic and the fuse box it should match up , you may have to count over and down but here it is

thanks, jim

Well thanks for the diagram of the fuse box that should help. BUT what you were saying about the dome light. My dome light never goes out, (i had to pull the bulb out of it so it doesnt drain the battery) and my HORN doesn't beep. NOW the horn not beeping was going on for a few months. But the dome lite, being on where I had to disconnect just started happening a few days ago after I got the car back from the body, shop. Are these two things related? And how do I fix them?

Could be related but check the fuse first, and what was your car in the body shop for, that may be related

MY CAR WAS IN THE SHOP FOR BODY WORK IT WAS HIT ON THE RIGHT SIDE, THEY HAD TO REPLACE THE RIGHT DOOR. RECENTLY AFTER THAT MY DOME LITE STAYS ON AND WONT GO OUT I HAD TO DISCONNECT IT. THE ISSUE AT THE INSPECTION WAS THAT THE HORN DIDNT BEEP. THAT WAS NOT BEEPING FOR ABOUT 5 MONTHS THOUGH. JESSICA

Ok check the fuses, and if thats not it we will try and get you further, the dome light is most likely related to the door repair as there is a switch on the door or the door trim that turns the light on and off, I would take that right back to the body shop and have them deal with it free of charge,

get back to me on the fuse thing

Ok well yall went about it the right way, but in a cavalier the domelight and horn have nothing to do with each other, its the horn and cigarette light, check your lighter if it does not work then get a blue (15) fuse, and replace where it says cig. Light.

Sorry bubba never said they did

SO you are telling me to put a 15 Watt blue fuse where the cig. Lighter should be? And it will make my horn beep again? Let me know if that is correct? The thing is I dont know if the cig lighter works or not, cause the original cig lighter that goes there was missing when I bought this car. JESSICA

No we are not saying it will work for sure this is the starting point, pull the cig fuse and see if it is bad if you have doubts replace it and see what happens, the fuse is less than a dollar

Where do I go to for this 15 watt fuse? Autozone?

I was replying for you, by quoting what you said.

ANY parts store will have them, my advice is to stay away from auto zone however.
