Question type: Maintenance & Repair

With in the last week or 2 when I set my alarm it does not chirp the horn like it should also
when I intentionally set my alarm off it makes no sound at all just flashes the lights. What
could cause this and how do I fix it.

Possibly one of the ajar switches not made. Without all switches made the alarm will not set. Probably the hood or trunk switch. If the door switches were acting up your dome light would most likely stay lit or you would get a door ajar warning when driving.

The alarm still sets, however it just does not make any sounds. I intentionally set my alarm off and the lights still flash on and off and the car goes through the anti theft motions it just does not sound the horn I do have a couple faulty door sensors but the lights still come on and off like normal.

Check horn relay, two small relays in fuse box drivers door. Top one is for security, bottom one is horn. If the horn pad on wheel quits working the horns won't work.
