SOURCE: 2008 Ford Escape Horn Fuse keeps blowing after

I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse and the car body. This would indicate a short in the wire running from the fuse box to the horn. You can also look around the alternator mounting area to see if any wires are being pinched. Hope this helps. Good luck!

SOURCE: where is the fuse for horn on ford escort

Hi! You may want to start looking at the fuse box located underneath the dash on the driver's side. The fusebox cover usually has a legend that tells you the designated fuses and amperes. Replace the horn fuse if busted. Have a nice day

SOURCE: 2008 ford focus horn

Well it depends on what you tested in the circuit most horns are vary simple they have a 12 volt wire hot and it goes through the horn to ground . If you put your muilty meter on OHMS and touch the red lead to the +side on the horn and the black lead to the ground side the meter should read 000 or vary low resistance if not go to the frame with the black lead if it reads 000 or differane from the last test then the horn is bad. Next test the power supply to the horn so put the meter on the 20 volt DC. scale unplug the wires from the horn and see if you have 12 volts or any voltage comeing to the horn you may have to turn the key to run depending on how its wires but if the blinkers work the horn should to . You likely have more then 1 horn so look around in there make sure of what your doing or the tests will be no good . If you have no power at this point check the fuse box for a burnt out fuse it won't be a big amp fuse mabey 10 amps and may not say horn. Im sorry i don't know exactly ware the relay is on a 2008 focus but it would be in whats called a relay center witch you likely would be able to find in the oweners manual in the glove box . But the horn is rarely used and most likely a connection problem they tend to be low on the vehicle and get wet along with road salts in the winter depending ware you live can get corroided . But if your going to test make sure the test is going to give you the information you need to correctly daigonis the problem Good luck

I have 2008 crown victoria formally police car , horn not working, how I get back to work


Usually, the horn is powered all the way to the horn switch, where the ground wire is connected to the ground. The thing to check is this, or to ground one side (preferably not the live side) of the horn to test this.

2008 Ford Escape XLT horn stop working


Find the horn and see if the wire is attached. If so, hook up a 12 v lamp to the wire & attach to a good GND. Pushing the horn button should light the lamp. If it lights, your horn is defective.If it doesn't ,check the fuse, wiring to the button and the switch(button). This should be the basic crkt.

check your ground and clean it , also check your power source you may have 12v but not enough amps to make it work if you are using the standard horn power trying to run an airhorn motor may not be enough but most likely would be a ground problem

Horn isnt working and all relays are ok


Sometimes the horns get stuck. You migh be able to tap on the horn with a metalic tool (screwdriver or pliers) to get it working. I would check voltage to the horn wire. It should have voltage while the horn button is pressed.

My horn isnt working on my 2002 zx2 ford , the fuse is good. in


Check the horn relay, it is located under the dash near the fuse box. I believe it is on a white box. You may need to purchase a new relay or there could be a problem with the horn button in the steering wheel/column. Check relay first.
