2000 Focus Horn location?

Just bought this car and the previous owner told me the horn did not work. I figured I could handle this but cannot find where it is located. Have checked the ususal locations in the front of car but no luck. I did find the car was hit in the left front fender and may have been replaced. Is it located in the fender? I cannot even find a wire hanging anywhere that would indicate it might have been removed. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks for the info. I have ordered a replacement horns for this car from Ford. They cannot confirm if this car is suppose to have two horns, a high pitch and low pitch, or not. I will start with the match to what is already there and if it does get 2 horns I will figure it out from there. Did not think this could get complicated.

    Thanks again.

If it's the same as my 2002 Focus, the horn is located on the driver's side of the car, attached to the radiator mount, behind the front fender.
It's smaller than you think (about the size and shape of a hamburger), but easy to replace as it is only held on by one bolt and connected via a wiring harness, or two wires (plus a ground).
Very simple to fix, and you will need to fix it often becuase these vehicles are poorly designed and feed water or slush up into the horn assembly; that's why they fail.
So when you install the new one, try to angle the mouth of the horn backwards and towards the center of the engine.
Good luck.

I am trying to find were the horn relay located

the horn relay should be in the engine compartment relay box. I think a lot of cars have them there now. if you have your owners manual it should tell you in there where its located also.

1 Answer horn stop working.i check fuse and relay and its seems ok.mechanic told me to check sterring wheel.can someone tell me what to do?

Yes, on the steering handle there is the wire which is maybe not connected to the terminal. when you press the horn wire is not sending a signal via relay or directly to the horn.

Horn quit working. Fuse looked fine, still changed it and nothing.

there are 3 parts, the horn, the horn relay, and the horn switch. horn relay is simple to check by replacing it with another from a parts store. it is plugged into a fuse panel inside the car or under the hood, look at your owner's manual for exact location. the horn can be disconnected and then jumpered directly to the battery. an old extension cord with the ends of the wires bared makes a find jumper cable. horn is usually located next to and in front of the radiator. if the horn honks it is good, if not you can buy a generic one at a parts store. if it is not the horn nor the relay then you are looking at replacing the switch inside the steering wheel and this is generally beyond the scope of a non-mechanical person.

How to fix the horn. or rewire a horn. the previous owner stated that he took out the fuse for the horn because it would not stop beeping . I need the horn to work to pass safety

Apparently the previous circuit of horn is shorted making work all time.
Just check entire wires, relay and horn button in your car for shorted and have them fixed.
Otherwise you need to install new set of horn system ( horn button, wires and relay)

Owner's manual should have a diagram of the fuse panel. Need to find which fuses control these items and check the fuses.
