SOURCE: 2000 acura TL horn blows when replacing the battery

dont you have the alarm key fob? if so that will reset it. just press unlock. If you dont an dits not a OEM Acura alarm you will need to find who makes it and get a new key fob, or have a shop that does alarms to disconnect it.

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?
Cheers,

It sounds like your alarm system. You will need to reset it, check in the owner manual. There probably is a fuse that says ALARM. If so, take it out in the mean time.

SOURCE: bought a 1992 acura vigor and found horn fuse missing. when I replaced the fuse alarm goes off and constantly sounds. how do I stop it? I've read that there's a relay somewhere under the hood

horn relay located on the right side kick panel,you will see a row of relays,if horn relay is okay, more likely your horn control pad has a short inside causing horn button contacts to stick causing horn to keep blowing.

I'm trying to put in a new battery in my 94 acura legend but the horn goes off non stop what should i do to fix it so i can start the car


Sounds like a anti theft. Put your key in the ignition but not in the start. just put it in. See if you can remove the battery now without the horn going off. If you can also find the horn and un hook it. there should be a connection clip if you trace the wire down.

Hope that helps

My horn sounds off and won't stop 'til I disconnect battery cable. Why?


sounds like there's a short in your wiring in the steering column, A lot of times with a tilt wheel a wire get loose or gets a short in it. the steering wheel may have to come off to fix the problem but make sure to disconnect the airbag first, I'm not sure what vehicle you have so I don't know where to tell you to look for the connection, may be best to take to a dealership if possible. Hope this helps.

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.
