Need a fuse box diagram for a 2004 mercury sable. Horn stopped working

1) Check for power to horn unit with steering wheel horn switch depressed. If power present, replace horn unit.

2) Check horn switch operation. Repair or replace.

3) Check continuity from driver's horn switch mechanism and horn wiring. If faulty, then trace wiring back to fuse box and relay assembly.

Make sure you haven't skipped any steps before attacking the fuse box issue.

2001 mercury sable will run but won't charge and no batttery indicator light in dash will not light

If it runs you have one of 2 issues. 1. The battery is bad and the alternator isn't able to keep it charged (you will have to jump start it every time the motor is shut off). 2. Your alternator is bad and the battery is running the car (when battery is drained car will stop running) which is my belief as the battery light only comes on when the alternator isnt charging. Have the charging system tested at your local AutoZone/Advanced Auto parts store they normally do it for free.

How long does it take to take the transmission apart. Not fixed just take it apart. I had a nissan maxima 2004 5 speed taken the transmission apart and they shop wanted to charge me $800. Is this right...

It shouldn't take more than a couple of hours, 3 or 4 at the most, to disassemble the transmission. Sounds a bit expensive for just taking it apart. I would check some other places.

I own a mercury sable v6 i want to replace the freon

The port closest to the firewall would be the low side where you charge the line with R134 refrigerant. Use gloves and clear goggles to protect your eyes and skin when connecting. The quick connect fitting will ONLY fit on the low side so you can't connect it to the wrong connector (size won't match if you select the high side near the front of the car).
Place the AC on MAX while you charge the system. I recommend purchasing a quick fill kit that has the gauge built into the charging line so you can see the pressure when you let off the trigger. Don't let it approach the red or system will stop working (overcharging the line is not good) These can be purchased at auto parts stores and department stores.
