Horn & Hazards won't stop after changing the battery

After changing my battery and connecting the terminals the horn and hazards start and go on for minutes before stopping and starting again. I don't have a fob to try and when I turn the key in the ignition the car starts like normal. What else can I try?

    I have tried 'leaving the ignition on, disconnecting the negative battery terminal, then turning off the ignition and re-connecting the battery back up' but the issue remains.

Horn blows after I installed battery


Attach the battery cables to the correct positive and negative connections,close the hood,use your remote to lock and unlock the doors and the horn should stop.The vehicle may be in anti theft mode and locking and unlocking the doors with them closed should put the vehicle back into normal mode.
Your radio may show antitheft mode now and the code to return it to normal should be in your vehicle handbook in the glove compartment or attached on a sticker to the side of the glove compartment.It can also be had from a Honda dealer.DO NOT EVER REVERSE YOUR BATTERY CABLE CONNECTIONS.

I have a 91 mazda miata. my horn stopped working, buzzer isnt working and my hazards arent working either. i check to see if it was connecting it was. then i checked the fuses and relays, all were good. i...


Horn and brake lights are on the same fuse. Even if it looks OK replace it with a new fuse to be sure. Your 91 uses a 15-amp large-sized blade fuse for the horn/brakes.


The door buzzer is a separate plug-in module on the fuse box inside under the driver's side dash. If you're not getting any buzzing the whole module can be unplugged and replaced.

Last item to check would be the grounds located under the dash. I'd suggest tracing back from the hazard switch as that's easiest to access (but still not easy) and make sure all the grounds are clean and tight. Then the same for the horn switches in the wheel.

2003 - RX300 I'm tring to change the battery,when I connect the negative terminal, the horn blows and won't stop... I've turn the key to start and nothing happens, the horn keeps blowing.......


I would check to see if this is a relay problem for the horn. Remove the relay for the horn and see if you can swap it with another to confirm it is bad. If with another relay it doesn't stay on you no it was just a relay so go get a new one. The only other thing could be a security issue and when you discharged the power by unhooking battery the vehicle is acting like it has been broken into. But i would say it's a relay problem. Good Luck.

Horn won't work. and already checked fuse.


the problem may be that the horn is faulty or the horn button on the steering wheel is not making contact, check for loose wires & connections, to check the horn remove the wire(s) from it then connect a wire to the positive terminal of the battery then to the horn if the horn is OK it should work if not it is faulty & will need replacing,if the horn has two wires to it you will need another wire from the negative terminal of the battery to the horn as well........hope this helps......cheers

methinks a stray wire in aftermarket alarm system. Most horns are negative switched (ie they are operated by earthing a wire on the steering column) and would not interfere with positive-switched items such as the hazard lights. Does your car have an aftermarket alarm?
