    Just bought my daughter this car and the horn doesn't work and the gas
    pedal is broken off. Anyone have any ideas on fixing these problems

  2. If you have a multimeter set it to volts and connect it across the two wires
    going to the horn (usually mounted in front of the rad under the hood). Get
    someone to press the horn button and you should measure 12 volts. If you
    measure 12volts and you don't hear any sound from the horn then the horn is
    bad and you have to get a new horn. You buy a new horn either from a dealer
    or an automotive store and you unbolt the old one and install the new one in
    its place. If you don't get 12volts then it is either the horn button or the
    horn relay or an open fuse. It would help if you had a service manual like
    a Haynes or Chilton (approx $15) to help you find where the components are
    The gas pedal is usually a spring-loaded pedal the pulls a wire cable
    connected to the throttle. As you press the gas pedal it pulls the throttle
    cable which controls the gas flow. Take a look under the hood near where the
    air intake hose connects to the intake manifold to see if you see a broken
    cable dangling there. Have someone push the gas pedal while you look under
    the hood to see if you see a cable moving in and out and going nowhere. If
    the cable is not broken maybe the spot that it connects to is broken and
    needs to be fixed.
