Try to make the horn work with your remote keyless entry, if you get it to sound you know that the horn and its ckt are ok, and that the problem is probably in the clock spring,.. is the air bag light on also??

hello im looking for a diagram of the fuse box and names of the fuse of my 1991 ford ranger xlt My bake lughts dont work my back up lights dont work my flashers dont work my heater doesnt get hot and i cant find the fuse for these items
The horn works by earthing, normally done by you pressing switch, if the horns wire or the internally creates a contact to earth(chassis) your horn will sound. Take your switch apart on you steering wheel & give it a clean.
Hope this helps, if not, remove wire at horn end, leaves you with no horn but peaceful nights.
Have a nice day.
Just had a similar problem. Brake (stop) lights and horn didn't work. Couldn't find mention of stop lights in fuse chart. Found horn fuse to be slot 21 in the engine fuse block (not the fuse block in car interior). Replaced 15A fuse and all now ok.
hi , if like a similar problem i had years ago , the problem is either a bad connection on the steering wheel or an earth fault on the horn its self ? the car i had the fault on was a mk1 golf and under the steering wheel was a copper strip round the neck of the wheel where its connected to steering rod.....the connection (similar to a motor armature brush) was not making a good connection, i cleaned them with wire wool and hey presto. hope this helps??
Check all of your fuses if you have electrical troubles and also check the wiring going to the horn and inside the steering wheel but DO NOT open the steering wheel if you have SRS/Airbags as you never know what may trigger it and send that screwdriver you were using to pry it open thru your head or torso like a bullet!Other than trying not to die it shouldn't be too hard to figure out the problem.Probably a fuse or loose connection =] Good luck!
Horn fuse should be labeled on the fuse block. If it's not, easiest way to check is to just check them all. Use a test light and probe the back side of each fuse on both ends, till you find one that only has power on one side. Horn works with key off but I generally check with key on. Also, you have a horn relay (should be in the power distribution center (basically another larger fuse box, usually on the right fender under the hood. If all else fails, run a "hot" wire right to the horn & make sure it works. Horn "switch" is actualliy part of the signal mechanism and internal parts within the steering column...though these sometimes develop dead spots, it's least likely that it is the source of your problem.
