Horn doesn't work fuse and relay replaces but gets hot


Short in wiring or horn. Disconnect horn from vehicle wiring. I would run a wire from the positive (+) side of battery and touch to the terminal the horn (careful not to touch the bare wire to the car or horn body). If horn sounds, you have the joy of finding a short. They make a tool for that. If the horn doesn't sound off, you need a new one.

I have a 1998 chrysler concorde. The airbag light on the dash stays on and my horn doesnt work. How do i fix this without costing me tons of money?


Could be a wiring problem or the clockspring in the steering column.
You would need to pull the steering wheel and test the circuits.

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.

198 honda accord ex if horns sounds, shorts out cruise control and brake lights. This happens when I manually sound the horn or the alarm does. Any ideas?


This is a tough one, if a horn itself was shorted, it wouldn't sound.Try unhooking both horns, and try to activate it from the steering wheel. If the brake light´s fuse still burns, at least you know that there is a short in the cabling leading to the horns. If the fuse doesn't trip, then one of the horns should be the culprit.

How to fix the horn. or rewire a horn. the previous owner stated that he took out the fuse for the horn because it would not stop beeping . I need the horn to work to pass safety


Hi,
Apparently the previous circuit of horn is shorted making work all time.
Just check entire wires, relay and horn button in your car for shorted and have them fixed.
Otherwise you need to install new set of horn system ( horn button, wires and relay)

Short in horn and park lights kills batt i traced and checked horn switch and light switch


By tracing the horn and light switch, did you find the short? If the horn is shorted, then it should only run the battery down if the horn switch is made. Or the horn is pressed. So I would suggest the light switch is going to be where the problem is.

My horn on my Buick Skylark will not work. It blows every horn fuse we replace. How can I get it to work?


You may have a short circuit in your horn button causing the
fuse to blow when you press the button or in the horn itself.

1. Locate the horn under the hood normally in the front of
the engine compartment.
2. Once you locate the horn, disconnect the wire from the
horn.
3. connect a VOM (Volt Ohm meter) to the horn's wire.
plus(+) side to the wire and negative (-) side to ground
or some metal part on the car.
4, set the VOM to dc voltage and have someone press the
horn button. You should read 12 volts on the VOM, if
not you have a short in the horn button, if you do mread 12 volts
you have a short in the horn. Replace the horn....

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.
