Horn Wiring 2000 Mercury Mountaineer

My son tried to replace his horn (kept blowing fuses) with an aftermarket horn, and I am going to put back in an OEM replacement. The one he got is a piece of junk
He didn't keep the original horns or wires
The replacement he got is a single note horn, the OEM should be (2) horns, a high note and a low note
Are the 2 horns wired in series....12vdc to one connector on horn #1, jumper cable from horn #1 to horn #2, and connector on horn #2 to ground?

No/ you have 2 horns your right about that but its one wire connector for each horn usually one horn on the right and the other on the left/ the horns should be slide in connector and if he cut them for one doesnt seem right/ I bet that was the problem he tried using the same wire from the original horns when he kind of grounded the horn so it would not work / but there is only one wire per horn/ Please rate my response/ Thank you very much

The horn is not working in my son's car


There is a wire somewhere between the fuse box and the horn that is touching metal and grounding out the circut.Follow the wires from the horn to the fuse box carefully you should find your problem.

My 1999 CRV horns are both not working. what can I replace them with? Should I replace them with the Honda horns or go aftermarket? They look easy enough to replace.


The first thing to do is check the wirings of the horn,see if there's a corrosion with it. you can use WD-40 or any rush solution that remove the dirt on it.

If you have a spare horn,try to replace it first and see its working.also check the lines all going thru the fuse box as well as the its fuse might be busted and need to replaced.Otherwise, a co-incidence that you need to replace both horns.



Good luck...

2006 grand prix horn fuse keeps blowing. what should i look for


horn may be shorted internally. Try pulling the connector off the horn, put in a fresh fuse, see if it blows.

If it still blows, you have a short in the wiring or the relay. If there is no obvious short in the wiring, change the relay.

If the fuse doesn't blow with the horn disconnected, replace the horn.

99 dodge durango. My horn keeps blowing the 20 amp fuse under hood. There is also a horn relay. Could that be the problem? The horn will work after I replace the 20 amp, but blows within a few times of...


could be you might check it out. many items take the same relay so you might try exchanging it with another one with the same numbers. If that isn't it you may have a short in the horn itself.

I need to get a fuse box layout for 1999 Saturn SL2. The horn is not working in my sons car and we would like to determine whether or not it is the fuse. We can't tell which fuse is for the horn because...


The saturn horns ARE notorious for failing, you may have to replace the horn because it has a built in horn relay that is the cause of the failure. YOU WILL KEEP BLOWING FUSES if the horn is not working because it's grounding out through the bad relay that is built into the horn. DON'T go with a loud or aftermarket horn if you don't know how to wire it safely or you will fry the clock spring in the steering wheel, just stick with the stock horn and you will be fine.

On my 1972 duster,when i blow the horn,the fuse blows and the tail lights go out also. the same fuse runs both.what could be the problem?


This sounds like the horn may have a short in it somewhere. Does the horn blow at all? Try this: Make sure you have a good fuse installed to this circuit again. Disconnect the horn and place a volt/ohm meter set to DC volts on the horn connections. If there is just 1 wire going to the horn, put that wire on the red wire of the meter. Put the black wire of the meter to a good ground, preferably the negative battery terminal. Now press the horn and see if there is a reading of around 12 Volts. If so, replace the horn. If not, and the fuse blows again, check the wiring for a fray/short to ground. When you're looking at the horn of course, make sure the positive lead isn't shorting to ground as well.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need any more assistance! :)

Horn blows fuses


you may need to put a relay in it as the current from the horn may be back feeding up the immobiliser horn circuit and causing a short. Sounds like the immobiiliser has its own source of power seperate from the factory circuit When you press the horn the power goes to the horn and up the immobiliser horn circuit and it blows the fuse.

You may have some short circuits in your wiring, a bad horn relay or horn unit, and/or a bad wiper motor. Hard to tell without actually looking at it.
Try this:
Disconnect the horn, and try another fuse. Does it blow? If not, the horn is shorted, and needs replaced. If it blows, remove the horn relay & try another fuse. Same with the wiper motor, unplug it and try another fuse. If it does not blow, you need a wiper motor.
