I can't say for certainty this is correct on 2017 Fortes because I don't have that year specifically but on my other Hyundai and Kia cars, the horn for the alarm (what beeps when you lock the car and what goes off when the alarm is activated) is different from the horn that honks when you press the steering wheel.
I'd first check the fuses and then check the horn itself.
If you open the hood, if you look at the passenger side right next to the engine, you will see a horn it looks like a shell / snail.
That is the alarm horn.
The horn for your steering wheel is on the passenger side front bumper in the corner below your headlights.
It is a separate horn.
1. Check the fuse - fuse for the steering horn should be in the engine bay near the battery.
2. If it doesn't look blown, you have to check the connection by looking at the horn with requires removing the bumper or jacking up the car and looking it from under
3. If it all looks good and doesn't work, its horn malfunction and it needs to be replaced.
You can do this diagnose yourself or if you don't know how to any of this just take it to the dealership.
I have a 2010 Kia Forte that has hit a little over 200,000 miles and I’m wondering if it will last or should I get a new vehicle? It has a few problems the check engine light will come on and ooff and the ac will stop working sometimes and it likes to shake from time to time
My under-car shield is broken and lost all the bolts that hold it in place wondering if somebody knows where can I get the replacement bolts different from the dealer and what sides are and how many do I need to install the new under-car shiel.
noobie here, I looked around a bit but didn't seem to see this information already in a thread anywhere, so sorry if it's already there.
But can anyone confirm how many grease nipples there are on a 2012 Forte EX? I only see 2 - 1 on each front tire by calipers. Am I missing any...
Just bought a 2013 Forte EX with some minor damage to the passenger side wheel well. This wiring plug is hanging there with a mystery function. The wire disappears into the lower engine compartment. It does not have fog lights and everything seems to work, so far. Does anyone have a clue what...
