    Does this car have an alarm system in it? Try disconnecting the wires off of the horns under the hood usually located near the inside grille.

Pulling the fuse will fix it temporarily, but you will need to get it fixed, you will fail your state inspection. It is either a "stuck" relay, or your horn switch is stuck on. I may be just as easy to pull the (+) wire from the horn itself until you find the problem. (I tried to find a fuse diagram for that model online, but could not find one.) If you find this helpful, please rate me, thank you.

Have electrical issues on a 2004 mazda 3.


I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.

How do I disable horn?


Check your fuses. It varies from car to car but you may have a fuse dedicated only to the horn unit. In that case you can just pull the fuse without affecting anything else..

Other than that you will need to pull the wiring connectors off the horn unit and tape them up to keep any moisture and dirt out. Hopefully that will not trigger any issue with the security system.

Witch fuse should be pulled on 1999 jeep to stop horn from blowing


Your owners manual will show you exactly where it is...However it is easy to disconnect the horn...You desperately need a horn for safety reasons to avoid a crash...Especially if your state has a safety inspection requirement...Your fuse panel should also have the fuses numbered and a sticker inside the fuse box cover stating which fuse goes to horn....Also you can wear safety glasses and disconnect the battery to avoid air bag explosion..Remove steering wheel center cover where the horn is pressed...,You will see a small wire attached to the cover and to the prong inside steering wheel...It could be loose or disconnected.....If not just disconnect the wire and black tape the terminal end ..Then the horn is disconnected...

My horn sounds off and won't stop 'til I disconnect battery cable. Why?


sounds like there's a short in your wiring in the steering column, A lot of times with a tilt wheel a wire get loose or gets a short in it. the steering wheel may have to come off to fix the problem but make sure to disconnect the airbag first, I'm not sure what vehicle you have so I don't know where to tell you to look for the connection, may be best to take to a dealership if possible. Hope this helps.

The horn honks when I reconnect the battery


Hi,
If the horn only honked once it may be a symptom of your car alarm being set off after power has been re-applied. If the horn stays on after you reconnect the battery you have either a stuck horn button on your steering wheel or a stuck horn relay. Or it could be the alarm sounding the horn but that usually that occurs in a series of horn blasts (rather than continuous) and the car indicators usually flash in sync with the alarm sounding.
If the horn is stuck on in a continuous blast ie not sounding on and then off and then on etc etc, disconnect one the battery cables then pull the fuse that feeds the horn or pull off one of the removable spade electrical connectors from one of the 2 terminals on the horn itself. Usually the fuse box is either under the dashboard on the drivers side or could be under the hood. Consult your user manual for your car for fuse and horn locations.
If the horn is stuck you need to visit a qualified auto electrician, or perhaps you have a friend who knows his way around auto electrics?
Cheers,

Changed out dead battery and horn wont stop


Hello.
Changing out the old battery, you may somehow shorted something out in the car. You can check this by seeing if you have any power going to the lights on the car and what ever else that uses the power when you turn on the key. Newer cars like yours usually cant short out, but if the lights and other stuff dont work when your check them, disconnect the battery and look for the fuse panel. Check ALL your fuses and make sure none of them have been blown. You can check that by seeing if the filament in them looks to be burnt or broken as if it popped.
You can also check and make sure that the negative battery terminal is on tight enough. Sometimes a bad ground can mess everything up. As your doing this, before your reconnect your battery, go under the hood of your car and disconnect the horn. This will allow you to work without the horn blaring. To disconnect the horn, its just a wire with an end that simply slides over a metal tab, just give it a pull and it should come right off. You may have two horns so check both sides of the radiator. Hope this helps!

my horn did the same thing - we disconnected the horn (which in an 02' is behind the passenger side headlight) I'm sure it's wearing out and we need to replace it.
