SOURCE: Horn

Hey there Mudman,

The fuse may provide power to other systems. I'd be reluctant to pull it. And you probably don't want to pull the steering wheel apart.

The easiest, fastest solution is pull a wire from the horn itself.

Open the hood and find the horn. Normal location is up front near the grill. Once located, the wire coming from it should have a connector that you can pull off.

Some vehicles have more than one horn, so try it out and make sure this 'silencer worked.

That should do it.
Remember: Good things come to those who rate!

SOURCE: 1995 Buick LeSabre - horn blows

My horn would honk without any assistance from me. The reason was because the plastic cover for the air bag and horn switches had shrunk so tight that it pressed on the horn switches. If your problem is intermittent then cold temperature would also cause the cover to shrink. This is how I solved the problem on my 1995 Buick LeSabre:
Disconnect the negative battery cable.

  1. Under the hood I found a long black plastic cover with the words, “Maxi-Fuse/Relay Center”
2. 2. There are two plastic twist locks (turn ¼ left) and one small wing nut holding the cover on. When the cover is off I see two black fuse covers side by side and below them are several relays. Some are gray and some are black.
3. My horn relay was the second from the left as I faced the rear of my car. It was gray. Some may be black.
4. A small green retainer tab had to be pushed out before I could pull the relay out. On the back of the relay were two orange wires that supply 12V. One green wire that goes to the horns and one black wire for ground that goes to the horn switch under the air bag.
5. I cut the black wire and wired in a spst push button switch that I connected to ground.
6. I mounted the push button switch near the driver’s door on a flat part of the dash. I used very strong double sided tape to secure the button switch to the dash.

My horns now are activated when I push my new horn switch button. My problem solved.

Someone recommended removing the air bag/horn switch unit from the steering wheel and relieving the tightness of the plastic cover. There are probably more than one way to this.

SOURCE: Remove right rear door panel 2003 Buick LaSabre

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

Reset key fob


Unlock all doors, foot on brake, all doors closed. Cycle key quickly but carefully on-off appr 10 times until the car honks one time.

Do not turn the key far enough to start the car, just to the 'on' position so the dashboard lights up.

When the horn honks, open and close the driver's door, press any remote button and that's it.

Program another remote? Quickly open and close the driver's door again and push a button on the 2nd remote. That's it.

When you're done, remove the key and the horn should honk 3 times. You're all set.
Sometime it takes more than 10 on-offs to set program mode. Open/close the door, lock/unlock etc, wait 10 minutes, then try again

2005 Ford Escape - Door Open Indication Light & Horn Alarm Sounds


This is probably caused by:

a loose door switch, or

a loose connection to a door switch, or

a defective (dirty / corroded) door switch.

There is a false signal being sent that a door is open / ajar.

Alarm activated everytime I use the key to open the door.


very common issue with the vigor, it`s the power door actuator or something...there are 2 ways to fix it:

- the harder way (unless you`re half-decent at DIY car stuff, which I`m not), all you really are doing is cleaning the contacts..a detailed guide is here
http://www.acuravigorclub.com/Timely-Topics/Timely1202.htm

- OR the easy way is to just trick your car into thinking the hood is open so the alarm will never arm itself. Taken from another post:

You can effectively permanently disable the alarm (who actually bothers to respond when they hear a car alarm anyways?) by opening up the hood and finding the little switch that detects whether the hood is closed. Just bend this so that the alarm system always thinks the hood is open and the alarm system will never arm even if you lock the doors.
