'88 Accord horn doesn't work - troubleshooting / repair tips?

  1. Hi all. Thanks in advance for your time.

    The switch/fuse/electrical side seems to be intact.
    I can tap all four buttons (LX, 4-door, fwiw), and the
    horns will "chirp" a little. They just won't give a nice,
    long, BEEP.

    way back when, I had an 87 DX and the horn itself went bad. had to take
    the front bumper off and replace it. bob

    connect a test light probe in place of the horn, and press the horn
    button, if the test light lights up, then you know for sure it's the
    horn thats faulty. another way is the remove horn, and connect it
    directly to the battery, if it sounds, then it's somewhere along the
    line of your horn circuit, switch, or relay, or possibly a poor

    good luck
