    A 1986 Toyota? I assume this is just your everyday driver and you want a horn that works? The easiest way for that is to run one wire from the horn and another wire with a fuse in the line,both into the cab of the truck.There you connect them to a three dollar horn button mounted on the dash ( which you should be able to buy at your local auto shop).

    Other than that you have to pull the steering wheel and/ or trace down the electrical wiring to see where the short is that.

    Is the horn getting power when you push the horn button? If so remove the horn and clean the surface that it grounds to and the horn mount. If the power, relay/fuse, and ground are good change the horn. Could also be a bad contact in the steering column but check the easy stuff first.

    hey felix, well, horn circuit on your truck consists of horn contact on steering wheel, horn relay, a fuse in fuse box, and the horn itself. FIRST, look for ,and check FUSE (for the horn) to see if its blown,,,your owners manual can tell you which one. If fuse is ok, then i’d go to the horn itself, to see if you get voltage at the plug (you will need a test light, and a friend to do this) simply push and hold.the horn contact on steering wheel, and see if you get ‘juice’ at the horn socket…if you do…replace the horn (easy to find at wrecking yard or buy generic), if no juice…(voltage), then find and locate the HORN RELAY (either under dash, or under hood,im not sure on your model), its either defective (usually) or the horn contacts on the steering wheel are bad (rare, but it happens).Good Luck, CODY
