Witch fuse should be pulled on 1999 jeep to stop horn from blowing


Your owners manual will show you exactly where it is...However it is easy to disconnect the horn...You desperately need a horn for safety reasons to avoid a crash...Especially if your state has a safety inspection requirement...Your fuse panel should also have the fuses numbered and a sticker inside the fuse box cover stating which fuse goes to horn....Also you can wear safety glasses and disconnect the battery to avoid air bag explosion..Remove steering wheel center cover where the horn is pressed...,You will see a small wire attached to the cover and to the prong inside steering wheel...It could be loose or disconnected.....If not just disconnect the wire and black tape the terminal end ..Then the horn is disconnected...

92 Toyota 4runner truck was running perfectly fine Later in the day went to start and the alarm just started going off and wouldn't turn off. Truck won't start even with keys turned in igniti


The alarm system somehow got activated , this is usually because the battery becomes discharged or disconnected try doing this:
Remove the key from the ignition
disconnect the negative battery terminal
put the key back in and turn to ON
exit the truck and leave door open
reconnect the battery terminal
get in and leave door open, if the alarm horn stays off it should start.

1997 Lincoln Continentalhorn won't stop honking


First, Have your Battery tested. The Alarm systems in Ford made Products are very sensitive to Voltage. There are 3 systems in the car which interrupt power, the Alarm system (horn honking) and the Battery saver and finally the starter interlock system.

The Alarm system will do several things to disable the car from starting. It will reduce the voltage to the starter to prevent the engine from turning over. Some will even kill the ignition system so that if the starter is jumped, the car still won't start.

The Battery saver will disconnect any system to prevent discharge below a minimum threshold. Unfortunately, when the Alternator is working extra hard to charge a really bad battery: it will disconnect the charging circuit because it reads the Draw going to the Alternator to produce the power as a parasitic drain. Even at 70mph I have seen the charging disconnected and the vehicle coast to a stop when the electric runs out.

The last system worth mentioning is the Starter interlock. Under the dash and at the top of the Brake pedal lever is a switch. When you press the brake pedal, the switch allows the starter to crank provided the shifter is not in D or R. Drivers feet routinely hit this switch and either move it or break it. When it breaks it can short and drain the battery.

As you mentioned a Random problem, the Brake switch can shake to create a random problem if it is loose or broken. Your rear brake lights can be affected.

With the horn honking, at least part of your problem is the Alarm system. You can have a bad ignition switch too, which reads the keychip to disable the alarm. Your keychip may be bad and setting off the Alarm.

I had a new Lincoln myself which set off the Alarm randomly. I actually slept inside the car one night so I could turn off the alarm in the Apartment complex parking lot. Did'nt know if it would start again if the battery was disconnected and then reconnected. The Battery was shorted with less than 1000 miles on the car. It was a factory defective battery less than 3 months old.

But your car has many years and miles on it so it was worth mentioning the wear items. I hope my solution is helpful.

Remove horn airbag toyota avensis


Avensis 2004 (2003-2007 model)
Removed as there was something rolling around inside the steering wheel, causing the horn to randomly activate

Unit has airbag, I didn't fancy the idea of the unit going off so I disconnected the battery as a precaution

Loosen the two "torx" screws on either side of the steering wheel (on sides next to the stereo controls on one side and blank/cellphone controls on the other side) , they will loosen, but not completely come out as they are held in by a plastic "cage".

Use a magnet to 'hold' one of the torx screws out as far as possible, whilst slowly wiggling the centre of the steering wheel out on that side (it won't completely remove), repeat the same on the other side, the centre should now come out (it's a firm fit), but note that the removed piece is still connected via cables (for the airbag), I did not need to remove these to perform my repair, so I am unsure as to what would be required to 'reset' airbag (if anything) once these are disconnected.

The torx screws need to be located in the plastic cages (on the recess on the Torx screw head) to hold them in place whilst refitting the centre of the steering wheel.

Subject: How to check an inoperative horn
Customer's exact description: ...the horn on my 1995 Buick LeSabre does not work...how to fix?
Here's how it's done:
Step 1. Start with the pre-check:

Do a Thorough Visual Inspection
Do a thorough visual and "hands-on" underhood inspection before starting any diagnostic procedure! You can find the cause of many problems by just looking, thereby saving yourself a lot of time. • Has the vehicle been serviced recently? Sometimes things get reconnected in the wrong place, or not at all. • Don't take shortcuts. Inspect connectors and wiring which may be difficult to see due to location.
Step 2. Instructions:
One. Remove the horn relay and check for battery voltage at the relay connector terminals.
  • If battery voltage is present at both terminals, go to Two.
  • If battery voltage is not present, check the ORN wiring and the relay fuse for circuit.
Two. With the horn switch depressed, measure voltage from the relay terminals. Wear hearing protectors, if someone is assisting you and depressing the horn switch while you're under the hood.
  • If voltage is present, go to Three.
  • If battery voltage is not present, check the black wire for an open circuit; check the connectors for proper terminal contact; check the in-line connector for proper terminal contact; check the spring loaded contact, slip ring, and horn switch for an open circuit.
Three: Connect a fused jumper from relay connector terminal 30 to terminal 86.
  • If the horn does not sound, go to Four.
  • If the horns sound, replace the horn relay.

Four: Disconnect the the suspect horn connector. Connect a fused jumper from the suspect horn terminal B (dark green) to the positive + battery terminal.
  • If the horn sounds, check the wiring to the horn relay for an open circuit or short to the ground.
  • If horn doesn't sound, check the black wiring for an open circuit, if OK, then replace the horn.

All the best,
Ben

The horn doesnt work at the steering wheel, but works when the alarm goes off. We have checked the fuses; Is there another relay or fuse box somewhere else besides the relay box under the hood or the fuse...


Check the STEERiNG PAD HORN, the single wire in there might have disconnected and needs to reconnect or the terminal is corroded and oxidize. Checking the terminal wire in the steering wheel, just ground the wire and the horn must goes off! Taah!

Purchased 1996 Ford Crown Victoria. On driving it home the cruise control went out. Tried to reset and won't work, as well as the horn. What is the problem?


The horn relay is located toward the front of the engine. It is located just behind the radiator overflow reservoir and attached to the inner fender next to two other relays. It is the only one without a plastic cover over the top of it. FYI, our Crown Vic horn didn't blow, and the cruise didn't work. I changed the relay and still no horn. I decided to check the horns themselves. Found wires disconnected from terminals. Touched wire to horn terminal and horn blew incessantly. (previous owner had disconnected horn rather than diagnose why) Pulled the horn "button" from steering wheel and disconnected the wire leads and horn quit. Disassembled the "button" assembly. Foam had degraded over time between the contacts. (Ford has discontinued this part). Cleaned and replaced foam with Scotch foam mounting squares with holes punched out over contacts (2 layers thick). Re-assembled and viola! Horn and cruise control both work! Relay was bad as was horn button.
