Most likely the airbag/ horn rotating clock spring contact under the steering wheel has an open circuit in the ribbon, this is the most common cause.

This true, but is your airbag light on to? if not. check the fuse, wires connect to the horn. if all is well you have a bad horn

Fuse keeps blowing when I honk the horn. 2011 Mitsubishi Galant SE


Try disconnecting the horn and see if the fuse still blows when you press the horn button. If it does not blow the horn is probably bad. Buy a new horn.

Horn no blow


check for blowed fuse or bad relay, you can hook test light to see if horn getting power when you press horn pad if fuse and relay okay,remove horn and hot wire it if it blows, more likely horn pad with airbag in steering wheel bad,if horn pad bad you have to replace whole airbag with with horn pad as a unit.if horn dont blow when hot wired then horn it self is bad.

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.

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.

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 just stop blowing,won't blow


When you press on the horn button do you hear the horn relay click? The start at the horn, bench test it, if it works then check for power, is the fuse good and is the relay ok. If the stuff checks out then it may be the horn contacts behind the steering wheel.

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.
