The horn pad is most likely sun warped, ther is no other reason I know of, and yes it will be very expensive if you have an airbag.

Fuse keeps blowing when I honk the horn. 2011 Mitsubishi Galant SE


Try disconnecting the horn and see if the fuse still blows when you press the horn button. If it does not blow the horn is probably bad. Buy a new horn.

Silverado horn


Unplug the horn

If the fuses do not blow & you have
battery voltage at the wire connector
you took off, when pushing the horn
pad, then replace the horn

If the fuse blows with the horn out of the circuit,
then you got to do some testing for a short in the
wiring or horn button area.

Personally I would start by looking at a wiring diagram,
so I wasn't guessing at where I'm about to do my testing.

I have a piece missing under the horn assembly that I think is a spring. I made a spring that I thought was about the right length after insulating it from the steering wheel so it wouldn't blow. Now...

2008 Ford Escape Horn fuse keeps blowing after replacing alternator. Horn sounds once then the fuse blows. Also radio and song info that displays in the dash console with the compass does not work... The...


I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse and the car body. This would indicate a short in the wire running from the fuse box to the horn. You can also look around the alternator mounting area to see if any wires are being pinched. Hope this helps. Good luck!

The fuse for the horn keeps blowing. Any reason


Most common problem is the ground that the horn connects to wit the bolt is rusted and causes it to pull to much amperage so clean the contact first then if it still blows the fuse then the horn relay or the horn may be going bad.over time the horn gets junk in it and causes the coil to overheat and causes it to burn out. Horns cost $15.00 for a new horn and are easy to change. I doubt the relay is bad but it is always possible.

1988 Ford Crown Vic Horn Relay Location


The horn relay IS NOT located in a box toward the front of the engine. It is located just behind the radiator overflow reservoir and attached to the inner fender next to two other relays. It is the only one without a plastic cover over the top of it. FYI, our Crown Vic horn didn't blow, and the cruise didn't work. I changed the relay and still no horn. I decided to check the horns themselves. Found wires disconnected from terminals. Touched wire to horn terminal and horn blew incessantly. (previous owner had disconnected horn rather than diagnose why) Pulled the horn "button" from steering wheel and disconnected the wire leads and horn quit. Disassembled the "button" assembly. Foam had degraded over time between the contacts. (Ford has discontinued this part). Cleaned and replaced foam with Scotch foam mounting squares with holes punched out over contacts (2 layers thick). Re-assembled and viola! Horn and cruise control both work! Relay was bad as was horn button.

1988 Ford Crown Vic Lost Cruise Control


Although I don't think the cruise is an issue for safety, reach in under hood , or in grille area and find your horn(s) and just pull the connector off them temporarily, so they won't blow & put fuse back in and see if cruise starts to work again. It's not unusual for circuits to be labeled wrong or not at all in fuse panels. Then you can turn your attention to horn problem.
