Question about 2003 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

No power I was removing some old cut wires on the accessory post under the hood, and did NOT disconnect the battery. A spark resulted and the horn chirped and ALL power was lost. The car will not start, no horn, windows, nothing works. Does anyone have any suggestions where to begin? I looked at the fuse box under the hood, but found no obvious blown fuses.

SOURCE: I need to know what fuses control the horn in my car

From page 130 of my UK spec Focus manual (Right-hand drive): -

Central fuse box is located on the left hand side underneath the instrument panel .
Open the glove compartment. Push in both sides of the glove compartment and swivel it down completely.
The fuses are behind.

The horn and power seats are on fuse number 33, coloured yellow and rated at 20 Amps.

Try changing the fuel filter first we always change them when servicing the fuel pump anyway,its easy and cheap,if that doesnt solve the problem you will have to perform an amperage draw test on the fuel pump to insure your not replacing a good pump. Check the fuel pump relay and inertia switch and wiring also.Although possible its unlikley the fuel pump would blow a fuse consistantly without displaying any driveability problems.There may also be another component running off the fuel pump fuse have your mechanic pull a wiring diagram to find out. Good hunting keep me informed

on my 1997 explorer the power window and door lock fuse is under the hood. fuse box driver side, passenger side of fuse box, 5th or 6th from front of vehicle. I now use fuses with LED in them so when they go out they light up bright red. easy to see even in full sunlight. cost about 3 dollars more but worth it. 30 Amp fuse.

Most probably...a loose electrical connection. Since you mentioned that the electrical power and the engine got cut off and after sitting for a brief of time, the van cranked back up. You need to check the wiring to see if there's any loose connection.

Here, I provided you the link where you can download the wiring diagram for your 2000 Ford Windstar:

This diagram (manual) will help you trace the problem.

Have a great day!

SOURCE: 2003 ford explorer power windows stopped working

you need a test light, that's a thing like an icepick with a wire clip on it and a light in the handle, any parts store will have several, about 5 bucks

check by clipping the clip to any ground, (Engine block etc) switch on he ignition and touch the sharp point to both sides of ALL fuses and breakers, when you find one with power at ONE end, but NOT BOTH ENDS.

you've got it

Not being smart but get a manual or youtube it. You need to remember that the air bag is located near the horn device. You can be hurt by the bag if it inflates.

Get out of vehicle, reinstall horn relay, replace fuse panel cover, close hood.

2003 cherokee laredo horn blew out of no where wont stop


Its the horn button and/or a broken wire completing the circuit, and bypassing the switch. You will find both under the center cover in the steering wheel. If an air bag is also there, disconnect the battery and wait 10 minutes BEFORE removing the cover. Also, do not disconnect the battery with out first installing a "memory keeper" low voltage power source in the cigarette lighter socket.
If you don't the radio and the whole car will lock you out and do nothing. Thank the theft system for that!!

It could also be the relay for the horns. Usually in one of the under hood power distribution boxes. Swap the relay for another identical relay and see if the horn stops blowing by itself.

1995 Volvo Horn keeps blowing with key in ingnition, and engine running


You can do this for now so its not driving you crazy, then get it fixed.
If your car horn starts blaring and seems to be "stuck" (it won't stop blowing), you could be in for a few embarrassing moments. There's nothing quite like the stares and expressive hand gestures you can draw as your horn takes on a life of its own. There are a couple of things you can do to get the horn to stop.
If it got stuck when you pressed on the horn switch on the steering wheel, it could be because the switch itself is stuck. Press the horn switch again, or tap it a few times to see if it gets unstuck.
Turn off the engine and look for your fuse box. Look through the circuit descriptions and see if you can find one for the horn. If you can, pull the fuse. This should silence the horn immediately.
If you can't find the fuse box, can't remove the fuse, or the horn doesn't turn off, then you need to resort to more drastic measures. Open the hood of the car and try to locate the horn. If the rear of the horn is visible, you might be able to see the wires that lead to it. Disconnect the wires. If you can't disconnect them, then cut one of the wires. If you cut the wire, wrap the resulting two ends of the wire with tape so that they can't short out your electrical system.
You could disconnect the main wires that run to your battery. You shouldn't cut these but should disconnect them using a wrench. This might "reset" the horn. Hook the wires back up and if the horn doesn't turn back on, you should go directly to an auto repair shop to figure out what is going on. If the horn does turn back on, you'll need to locate and disconnect (or cut) the wires to the horn as previously described. Then, go to the auto repair shop and let them replace the horn for you.

My 1999 sonnata has an electrical short casuing to horn to keep blaring unless the battery is disconnected. how can i disable the horn, and where is it located under the hood?????


Please open the hood and connect the battery momentarily and the horn will tell you its approximate loca tion with its sound. Just remove one of the wire from the horn and insulate it properly to avoid any short circuiting.

My daughter dropped coins in my steering wheel and it is causing the horn to go off randomly. Can i disconnect the horn temporarily? it is a peugeot 407 se (05)


Yes. open your hood, look at front of vehicle, you will see the horn. Unplug the wire.
You may be able to pull the fuse, but check that no other accessories are ran on that circuit too
