With my Ford: The horn issue turned out to be the spring return substance used to open the switch in the column, under the horn button pad. It deteriorates and loses its return spring function. Replacing this rubber/foam will fix the problem. Depending on what type of replacement you use - you may have to press harder to activate the horn. There is nothing worse than pressing the horn and having it stay on!

Ignition was not working the key wont go in,after it was fixed the horn wont work what could be the problem?


horn fuse is blown, locate fuse box, sometimes there are 2 , one in car and 1 under hood, engine compartment.
use your cars manual to see horn fuse and replace with same fuse.
If the fuse is burned out, replace it. Try the horn again. Check your car owner's manual for the location and type of fuse. Check whether there is any debris obstructing the horn button on your steering wheel that may be preventing the horn from sounding

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.

you need to buy a new horn switch, this will be a dealer item. most likely you can disable the air bag by pulling a fuse and snap out the center of your steering wheel trim, sometimes there are a couple of screws holding it in so look on the back of the steering wheel before you go gorilla. replace the horn switch and put it back together. as you do the work, carry this hassle forward and recall it next time you need to go gorilla on the horn. if your car is more than 10 years old a dealer might not have it and you will have to scour junkyards for a matching steering wheel and hope the switch is not bad as you R&R it. you may want to search for an airbag video for your car on www.youtube.com; that will show you more than you need to know about replacing the horn switch.

Horn came on one day and now wont shut off unless fuse is pulled?


Check the horn relay - it might be stuck. If the horn is OK then the only thing left is the horn button - pull out its wires, if the horn stops then the button is broken if not then its the relay.

your theft sensor is probably bad. and pulling the fuse will just shut off all power as a security feature. you oculd have the sensor checked out or if you know where it is replace it

methinks a stray wire in aftermarket alarm system. Most horns are negative switched (ie they are operated by earthing a wire on the steering column) and would not interfere with positive-switched items such as the hazard lights. Does your car have an aftermarket alarm?

The horn in my 2003 crown victoria won't shut off, I've gone through the fuses. Where is the cord to the horn located so that I can disconnect it?


The horn is located on drivers side in between the finder and head light. jack the car up and look from under the car. Also the horn might be stuck at the streeing wheel try pushing it a few times this might free it up. Don't pull the fuse unless you know what else it runs.
