SOURCE: 1998 Ford windstar horn wiring

There is something called a clock spring in the column that is used for the airbag, horn and cruise control buttons. This clock spring if messed with will cause a/bag light to come on and possibly cause a/bag failure if there is a collision. DON"T mess with the wiring in the column. Run new wires in to the horn or install an a/market horn.

SOURCE: CD stuck in player of 2005 ford freestar

Take another cd and push the stuck one all the way back then try and eject it. If it doesn't come out right away do the process again this time when you hit eject take another cd and push down or up on it. Wiggle it around so it catches the rollers in there. Using CDs with homemade labels causes jams when the stickers peel up.

clock spring in the steering column is my guess. They are delicate and have to do with anything in the steering wheel like airbag, horn, or anything that is operated by buttons on the wheel. These wires have to turn constantly with the steering wheel and the "clock spring" goes bad often enough

2005 ford freestar horn broken


Ho, ho, ho!
At a local junk yard where I live they sell the horn button/airbag for $25.
You take them off yourself.
On either side of your horn button you should see two plastic plugs the same color as the horn button.
If you will pop these out, they will uncover 2 screws.
Removing those will give you access to 4 bolts which will remove the whole center-of -the-steering-wheel assembly.
Be blessed.

Where is the fuse box located


One is under the hood, next to the battery and another fuse box is in the dash board under the steering wheel on the left side. Inside the plastic cover you will usually have a diagram for the fuses.

How do you troubleshoot a defective horn 2001 ford crown victoria?


Find the horn and use a test light to try to ground out one of the two terminals to see if it sounds. If it does, then the horn is ok, but it may be the switch in the steering wheel.

To test the steering wheel switch, take the horn cover off of the steering wheel and search for the lead for the button and try to ground it out. It may sound if you do this. If it does, then there is something wrong with the button connection at the clock spring.
---
Here are instructions on how to remove and replace the steering wheel which can help to understand how to troubleshoot the horn switch which is related to the clock spring electrical connector:

Steering Wheel Removal & Installation To Remove:
NOTE: Make sure the wheels are in the straight-ahead position. Disconnect the battery ground cable and wait at least one minute.
WARNING
To avoid the risk of serious personal injury, read and follow all warnings, notes and instructions in the deactivation procedure. Deactivate the supplemental restraint system (SRS).
  1. Remove the driver side air bag.
  2. Disconnect the clockspring electrical connector.
  3. Remove and discard the steering wheel bolt.
  4. Use steering wheel puller and remove steering wheel.
CAUTION
Removing the steering wheel without using a puller can damage the column bearings. Using a suitable puller, remove the steering wheel.
Remove the steering wheel while routing the wires from the clockspring through the steering wheel.
WARNING
To avoid the risk of serious personal injury, read and follow all warnings, notes and instructions in the reactivation procedure. Reactivate the supplemental restraint system (SRS).
To Install:
  1. Install steering wheel, while guiding wires from clockspring through.
  2. Install new steering wheel bolt. Tighten to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).
  3. Connect the clockspring electrical connector.
  4. Install the driver's side air bag.

When i touch the steering wheel the horn will not stop honking


check the horn connection. You will need to remove the center cover from the steering wheel. You should see a lone wire with a connector end that mates to a tab. When this makes connection the the center of the steering column (ground in this case) the horn sounds. I would think that if you removed the steering wheel center cover you will readily see and be able to fix the problem.

This is not a hard job, just look the the underside of the steering wheel for the screws that need to be removed to release the cover.

Good Luck

2004 freestar


the most common cause of this in your Ford based on my dealer related repairs would be a part called the rotating ribbon contact (Ford refers to this part as the Clock-Spring contact.) that connects the steering wheel airbag to the steering column wiring, this contact coils and uncoils as the wheel is turned left and right and makes a solid connection to all steering wheel mounted components and controls. To change this part you must dis-arm the airbag and remove the steering wheel, if u do this repair yourself it is very important that u dis-arm the SRS system before starting work, this can be done by disconnecting the battery for 1 hour.
