The circuit you hear powering up for two - five seconds should be the fuel pump priming the fuel system . What type transmission ? manual or automatic ? Do you know what a wiring diagram is an how to read it ? Free wiring diagram's here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model and engine size. Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting .Click the search button then the blue link . If you look at this diagram you will see the fuse at the top of the page that powers the ignition switch . You will see the ignition switch , the starter relay and the PCM - engine computer ! The PCM supply's a ground to energize the starter relay . But only if it see's that the transmission is in park or neutral ( automatic trans ) Or the clutch switch is closed ( manual trans ) .To see this you would need to go to transmission controls under transmission/transaxel . Plus the PCM will not energize the relay if there is a anti-theft system problem . You could do testing right at the relay base (where the relay plug's into ) With a test light ,voltmeter etc... Watch this video on relays

SOURCE: turn key, dashboard lights like normal, nothing happens

get a boost... sounds like the battery is run down.... if you want to test that theory... have someone try and start the car while you check hte voltage on the battery.... it may well even need replacement

Before I even got done reading your post I was thinking clock spring. They aren't the easiest things to change but are definitely changeable. You will, however, need a steering wheel puller, more than likely. Most clock springs aren't cheap either.

Hope this helps out,

Yes they do but I would rather think you have a bad battery cabe connection to the system, sometimes the battery cable corrudes and you can't see it try replacing the cable ends and the connector ends espically if they are by the battery.

No horn and no right hand turn signal bulb good,icannot find fuse to the horn ifound signal fuse it is good


Horn also uses a relay . What year , make , model vehicle. The odds of the fuse being the falt are high , Fuse's do blow , but not for no reason . Short's to ground cause fuse's to blow . Which means electrical wiring problems or short's in electrical componets . Do you know what a relay is an how it works ?

My 2005 dodge neon's battery won't hold a charge, lights flicker and dim and on the dashboard the word fuse flashes, what is going on?


Could be a bad battery but I suspect your battery cable is either loose or corroded or dirty. Before you pull the battery disconnect your battery cables and clean them both ends and when you put them back on make sure you have good connections and tighten good.If that does not work pull your battery and get it tested at a battery out let . they should do that for free.

My horn doesnt work in my 2004 chevy impala


I will try first checking if they are not unplugged. They are under the hood right in front of the radiator below the passenger head light next to the bumper. and the fuses are located inside on the left side next to the head lights switch

It is hard to tell, but maybe you cut some wire, or unplug it by accident.
Check you fuses again.

2000 VW golf horn won't work, fuse is good , relay 53 is good but changed it anyway. No voltage reading at horns. Tested horn off car and it is fine


Did you check the power to the relay? and then the signal wire (ground) at the relay to see if it's being signaled? Otherwise you may have a clockspring or module problem not allowing the signal to pass through to the relay.

Horn just quit working.


Do you get a click when you press the button? The relay should be audibly clicking if it's working.
If it is clicking then I'd check the horn itself, might be bad or have loose connection. If no clicking sound at all then I'd suspect bad relay or fuse (if it has a dedicated one), also possibly bad switch.
