    Horn does not work (But whenever i press it, it Blows fuse for stereo

    On my 2000 Catera, just trying to iron everything out so i can start driving it, whenever i press the buttons for my horn it blows the main fuse for my stereo, why is this, and the horn does not work at all.

    Also my tc light is not on but my speedo and odo do not work do you guys think my abs module needs to be rebuilt or what.

    Fuse number 8 is shared between: Headlamp Switch, Turn Signal
    Switch, Horn Relay, CD Changer, Multifunction Relay ... Page 6-59

    Fuse number 17: Horn #1 and #2 ... Page 6-59
    If you want to troubleshoot remove fuse number 17, this will disable your horn being energized. If you press the horn button and still number 8 fuse blows you will need to look for shorts or associated relay issues.

    For the Horn the relay is as follows below the instrument panel relay panel,

    Relay Number VI: Horn ... Page 6-61

    This information I got from my 2001 Catera Owners Manual.

    Hope it helps.

    PS: I just checked the 2000 Catera Owners Manual and the above info is the same for 2000 and 2001 Catera
