If you stop the horn then your car is no longer road worthy. You have a short circuit, most probably by the steering wheel itself where the wire to the horn connects the horn button. Remove steering wheel and inspect contact strip first.

    I agree with the advice given above. You need your horn functional. If problem is not in steering wheel contacts, have alarm system relays checked. For a temporary solution, I recommend disconnection of wiring harness at the horn itself as this will not affect any other components that may be on the same fused circuit.

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.

I had to take out my fuse because my horn keeps getting jammed. how do I fix it?


If your horn keeps going off .it may be due to the horn pad being stuck or damaged or a horn relay being stuck . You can find the relay and unplug it and see if the horn stops then if there is a relay in the same box switch with the horn relay and see if the horn works right it so its a relay problem if not . You will need to remove the air bag/steering wheel pad and inspect the horn pad to see if the contacts are stuck .

Was in an a car acident in my 96 ford escort. The air bags did go off. Still able to drive, except the horn will not stop going off. I can't find a fuse for the horn.


the horn fuse also runs the shift lock. Recommend you see if you can find the horn relay in the box by the battery and pull that out. If not that, you can always pull the connectors off the horns. The horns are usually in the grille area or in the fender near the headlights.

The fuse for the horn keeps blowing. Any reason


Most common problem is the ground that the horn connects to wit the bolt is rusted and causes it to pull to much amperage so clean the contact first then if it still blows the fuse then the horn relay or the horn may be going bad.over time the horn gets junk in it and causes the coil to overheat and causes it to burn out. Horns cost $15.00 for a new horn and are easy to change. I doubt the relay is bad but it is always possible.

I have a vw 93 jetta how can I keep the horn from going off


I wouldn't recommend removing the fuse, Im not sure on that particular year but usually a fuse has multiple functions not just 1 function. I would find the horn location and just un plug it. But Im curious as to why the horn is going off. Is it the alarm? If it is, I would take the car to autozone and have them test the amp output on the alternator and maybe a load test on the battery....

was it hot outside-heat could deform the steering wheel horn pad and make the horn go off,remove the horn pad and airbag unit(take fuse out for airbag system wait a few mins)then put the fuse that you removed back in place and see if the horn goes off again.
