SOURCE: The horn honks when I reconnect the battery

Hi,
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?

Why is it that every time I put the key in the ignition and start car the horn honks?


the negative wire or negatice current is shorting somewhere near the horn when you put key in the ignition and swtich the key fodward the battery current starts flowing in the wires and at due to short cercuit in or around the horn it starts honking so check the connections around the horn unit and secondly the problem can be in the horn button . Due to dislocation of horn assembly inside the steering wheel it happens sometimes

I can't turn off the security alarm on my 1998 nissan pathfinder


I couldn't turn off the security alarm on my 1999 Pathfinder as I replaced the battery,
Solution: I read the solution here to disconnect the positive cable, open the driver's door, insert the key, then reconnected the positive cable, while honking, I turn the key to the left, to the right and to the left again while the door is still open. The honking stopped. Then I started the truck without a problem. Thank you for the hint.

I am trying to install a new battery on my 2000 ford taurus and when connecting the negative the horn starts blowing and wont stop and the car wont start


when the horn starts to honk just put the key in the ignition and turn the car to on, you can also use the key to lock and unlock the drivers door, you are activating the security system by disconnecting the battery doing the above disarms it, if it still won't disarm then you need to see the dealer on this problem

1991 mercury grand marquis, the horn started honking by itself and won't shut off, I had to disconnect the horn wires. what could cause this?


The switch is behind the air bag. You can disconnect eh negative battery cable for a few hours, then pull the SRS fuse, then remove on the back of the steering wheel, remove the screws and the SRS bag, then check the horn switch and wires. The switch or the spring could be bad.

The horn does not work. Checked the fuse and it appears to be good. Where is the horn located?


I would look somewhere around the radiator. Near the front grill. Be sure to test horn by "jumping" power/or negative to horn. Maybe loose wire somewhere like at steering wheel? Some horns are connected to positive and need negative from steering wheel to honk.

Trying to install new batery and the minute I put the second cable to battery the horn starts going off How do I stop this. I thought I disconected the horn but it keeps going off


Install the battery by connecting the positive cable first,then the negative.If this does not work,do it vise-versa.connect the negative first,then the positive cable.If this does not work,connect the battery,and then insert the key and start the engine,if horn stops,let it run for about a minute,then turn the ignition off and remove the key.
