Silverado horn


Unplug the horn

If the fuses do not blow & you have
battery voltage at the wire connector
you took off, when pushing the horn
pad, then replace the horn

If the fuse blows with the horn out of the circuit,
then you got to do some testing for a short in the
wiring or horn button area.

Personally I would start by looking at a wiring diagram,
so I wasn't guessing at where I'm about to do my testing.

Keep blowing horn fuse


that is easy, a shorted horn or its wires.
there are only these ways to find it.
1: pocket full off fuses, and pull horn lug and test for blowing fuse.
2: and ammeter,.used to find it.
3: visual inspection of the whole horn wiring harness.
they also sell a fuse adaptive circuit breaker (test) so you dont need a pocket full of fuses.
4: willynilly guessing, new horn, new horn relay, then dang back to #1 or 2.

For 2004 ford truck f150 extended cab, I found the horn fuse, where is the horn relay?


disconnect the horn or horns, operate the horn and see if the fuse still blows. if the fuse still blows then there is most likely a short in the wiring. relays rarely cause shorts. if the fuse doesnt blow with the horn disconnected, reconnect the horn and operate the horn again, if the fuse blows you have a shorted horn.

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.

2008 Ford Escape Horn fuse keeps blowing after replacing alternator. Horn sounds once then the fuse blows. Also radio and song info that displays in the dash console with the compass does not work... The...


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!

The fuse for the horn keeps blowing. Any reason


Most common problem is the ground that the horn connects to wit the bolt is rusted and causes it to pull to much amperage so clean the contact first then if it still blows the fuse then the horn relay or the horn may be going bad.over time the horn gets junk in it and causes the coil to overheat and causes it to burn out. Horns cost $15.00 for a new horn and are easy to change. I doubt the relay is bad but it is always possible.

Horn fuse keeps blowing out


Check the wiring around the horn and make sure nothing is touching metal...look under the hood at the horn and make sure everything is pluged in and there is no water on any plugs or wiring...Make sure the fuse is the correct number (ex: 10, 20, 25) If it is still blowing out the fuse then you after you do some checking then it is a short in some wires

Electical


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.
