Question about Cars & Trucks
My wife this morning had car troubles when she stopped at Starbucks for coffee. Her cousin ended up jumping the vehicle and suggested the battery was a bit low on juice. So this evening I pulled out the old battery, and put in a lower power replacement (650 cranking amps vs. 850 that I pulled out of the van) battery as a temporary fix. Now the van constantly honks in about 2-3 second intervals. When the van is started, and when the van is locked, the honking eventually stops. I have no idea what is causing this.
When you disconnected the battery you triggered the secuirty system.

First and foremost: THANK YOU! Leave it this way! That horn honk is annoying. There is an option on cars with factory alarms to disable the (annoying) horn feature by removing and re-inserting an electronic key usually found somewhere below the steering wheel. There is no problem with your alarm.
Hope this helped,

check all the wiring in the stearing wheel. Cover should screw off from the back side. Make sure the horn is hooked up. Should be in the front bumper. If it still dont work then buy a new one. Should run about fiftenn bucks.

SOURCE: Horn just died
Look for a horn fuse, if fuse ok, look for a relay, or have someone blow it wile You tap horn with hammer, perhaps wet also electrical contact on steering wheel

If the horn only honked once it may be a symptom of your car alarm being set off after power has been re-applied. If the horn stays on after you reconnect the battery you have either a stuck horn button on your steering wheel or a stuck horn relay. Or it could be the alarm sounding the horn but that usually that occurs in a series of horn blasts (rather than continuous) and the car indicators usually flash in sync with the alarm sounding.
If the horn is stuck on in a continuous blast ie not sounding on and then off and then on etc etc, disconnect one the battery cables then pull the fuse that feeds the horn or pull off one of the removable spade electrical connectors from one of the 2 terminals on the horn itself. Usually the fuse box is either under the dashboard on the drivers side or could be under the hood. Consult your user manual for your car for fuse and horn locations.
If the horn is stuck you need to visit a qualified auto electrician, or perhaps you have a friend who knows his way around auto electrics?
