It sounds like the wiring between the horn button on the steering wheel and the dashboard is chafing. The insulation has been slowly rubbed off due to movement of the steering wheel. This is the only point between the moving parts (steering wheel) and non-moving parts (steering column). When the steering wheel is turned, the wiring contacts other metal and simulates the horn button being pressed.

It shouldn't be an expensive repair - but contacting your trusted local mechanic will remove any questions. If you do not have a regular mechanic, check with several to to make sure you're getting a fair cost estimate.

I hope this helps & good luck!

SOURCE: My alarm in my ford expedition keeps going and going

There is a hood open switch on many after market alarms that can cause the condition you speak of.

Also there is a chance that the engine starter solenoid internal contact has failed for the start circuit. You can check this with a healthy screwdriver by shorting from the positive lead to the terminal. (YES It SPARKS!) If the starter engages then the solenoid is fine. If it does not then the the solenoid has failed.

Another thing that can cause what you speak of is the alarm motion sensor.

If you really want it fixed... like NOW go to any auto alarm installation shop, grab an install tech and take him to your driveway.... (with a borrowed car if need be) My bet is he will have you going in less than 15 mins and for a reasonable charge.

SOURCE: 95 ford windstar does not shift from 2nd to 3rd

I would have the transmission range sensor checked at a dealer or other repair facility that has the proper scanner for checking this sensor

Why horn on 2001 Windstar comes on solid and will not turn off till disconnect battery?


There is a thing called a clock spring in the steering wheel. It will fail over time. Replace this part.

Why does the horn and hazard lights on my 1999 Ford Windstar keep flashing and horn keep blowing?


Just a guess but your remote may be shorting out on the panic button. Try taking the battery out of the remote and just using the key to open the doors for a day or two and see if it still does it. If not, replace the remote. Another more likely possibility with this particular vehicle could be the door switches. The door switches on my Windstar would cause the dome light to stay on all the time when the contacts get corroded. If you van is locked with the alarm armed it could be the door switch causing the alarm to think someone has opened a door even when they haven't. (You can remove and clean or just replace all of the door switches or track down the particular suspected door switch. Mine was always the sliding door..clean the contacts with scotch brite or steel wool and coat with very thin battery terminal grease.)

You need to have the factory security system scanned, it is most likely locking you out due to a fault.

Adjust the sensitivity of the alarm system.

It may be too sensitive and is being set off by the glass breaking sensors.
loud noises usually set this off if it is too sensative.

It's going to have to be looked at. But you can try unlocking a different door with the key. Hold it to the left (unlock position) for 2 or three seconds. Should shut off the alarm and allow you to start it.
