How to replace a horn on a 2001 Nissan Sentra?

My car horn is not working and I need to replace it, could you provide me with instructions on how to replace it?

The problem is most likely the fuse for the horn. Check the fuse box and look for horn fuse. It is very un-likely that the actual horn is broken, especially for a 2001. If its not the fuse, check the copper circle inside the steering wheel, it tends to wear away.

Well, if the horn is not working, I suggest you get it replaced by a professional. Don't do it yourself as it takes way too much time. If you want to learn how to do it, then you can purchase a to do book along side a horn on ebay.

First locate it. Typically it will be located behind the grill. Once it's found simply replace it with a new one of the same style.

It's quite unlikely it's the horn itself that is broken - more likely a relay or fuse. The horn is behind the grille and easily visible. Relays are in a small box under the hood, and the fuse will be beside the drivers knee.

Locate the horn. On many modern cars, it is in a wheelwell or behind the grille. Unbolt the old one, replace it, reconnect the wire.
