The vehicle has a factory anti-theft system that has been activated. You need the key fob to shut it off. I have had some success with connecting the positive cable, leaving the door open and turn the key in the "on" position and then attach the negative cable to defeat this but it only works on some cars, worth a try if you don't have the factory fob.

I'm trying to put in a new battery in my 94 acura legend but the horn goes off non stop what should i do to fix it so i can start the car


Sounds like a anti theft. Put your key in the ignition but not in the start. just put it in. See if you can remove the battery now without the horn going off. If you can also find the horn and un hook it. there should be a connection clip if you trace the wire down.

Hope that helps

Bought a 1992 acura vigor and found horn fuse missing. when I replaced the fuse alarm goes off and constantly sounds. how do I stop it? I've read that there's a relay somewhere under the hood


horn relay located on the right side kick panel,you will see a row of relays,if horn relay is okay, more likely your horn control pad has a short inside causing horn button contacts to stick causing horn to keep blowing.

Battery replace horn Acura


yep heres your answer
Open hood ensure new battery is disconnected.
Open main fuse panel cover under hood and remove horn relay (so you don't have to listen to the horn).
Use the key to lock the drivers door.
Connect the positive battery terminal.
Connect the negative battery terminal (security system will now activate, hazards lights will flash and horn would be going off if the relay was not removed).
Use the key to unlock the drivers door.
Get in, close drivers door.
Use the key to start the engine.
Security system will deactivate.
Get out of vehicle, reinstall horn relay, replace fuse panel cover, close hood. have fun stay dirty!!

Have 97 acura won't stay charge changed battery


the battery wont stay charged? if youre putting in a fully charged battery and your car runs, but then the battery slowly dies, the problem will be your alternator. the alternator is what maintains a car batteries charge. try replacing the alternator. 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,
Steve (Melbourne, Australia)

2000 acura TL horn blows when replacing the battery


dont you have the alarm key fob? if so that will reset it. just press unlock. If you dont an dits not a OEM Acura alarm you will need to find who makes it and get a new key fob, or have a shop that does alarms to disconnect it.

My horn doesn't work on my 1999 Acura TL 3.2. Is


Absolutely - You'll find it in the main fuse-box - probably located in one of the kickpanels (near your feet) or dashboard cover, or maybe even in the glovebox - There will be a fuse that feeds a horn relay - the ground side is fed from the horn pad, and the output side fed to the horn itself (engine compartment). The fuse for the horn is located in a fusebox with about another 25 fuses; and should be hot at all times, both sides.
