Do you have an aftermarket alarm system in your car? sometimes the aftermarket alarm needs to be reset with the bypass switch in order to shut the horn off.

Your horn relay may be shorting out, making your horn operate all the time. Have a look at your relays. You might find the horn relay is the same as another relay, If it is, try swapping relays with a known good one, and see if the horn operates normally. If so, get a new relay. Good-Day!

I have a 2012 SYM Fiddle II and when I turn the key on to start the scooter, the horn starts blaring. It will continue blaring when you are riding it too. How can I fix this?


Your horn button is defective. It is touching ground all the time completing the circuit and blowing the horn. If the wire going to the horn is frayed and tiucjing metal anywhere that is the same as the button which connects the wire going to the button to metal on the bike also known as ground. Find what color the wire is by looking at the horn itself. One side of the horn is battery plus voltage. The other side when grounded makes the horn blow. Unplug it if you can't solve it.

I tied to start my 1998 ford Taurus and all it did was honk the horn once


Security problem. It has to be scanned to see which part is wrong. Keys are the most expensive part. Takes two of them and programming. $100 to $150.

2000 ford taurus no ignition power


In the diagram, the top wires are voltage to ignition switch, hot all the time, use a test lite to check for voltage, you can see the wire colors. The bottom wires go hot with key in the proper position, check them for voltage, also. I started to trouble shoot your power windows, figuring if you fix one component, it may fix the others. I guess it's 6 of one or 1/2 dozen of another. Several ways to troubleshoot.
Any applicable trouble codes?

when the horn starts to honk just put the key in the ignition and turn the car to on, you can also use the key to lock and unlock the drivers door, you are activating the security system by disconnecting the battery doing the above disarms it, if it still won't disarm then you need to see the dealer on this problem

It's going to have to be looked at. But you can try unlocking a different door with the key. Hold it to the left (unlock position) for 2 or three seconds. Should shut off the alarm and allow you to start it.
