Ford horn won't shut off

Most likeley the horn switch itself in the steering wheel. These are nothing more than two metal strips seperated by a thin piece of plastic. As the plastic ages and or wears, they make contact and the horn will blow at any time, sometimes just by expansion from heat or shrinkage from cold. They can be expensive if it involves the air bag depending on the different models.

97 Ford Exployer is first started, dash lights blinks on and off

sounds like an alarm system that has the horn disconnected,so when you start the vehicle it trips the alarm then resets itself after awhile .see if there is an aftermarket Alarm system under the dash and remove it!

Horn on 1998 Explorer

Looking at the front of the vehicle, the horn is on the right side, top, behind the grill. (So if you open the hood, stand near the driver's fender, look to your left, in front of the radiator support, your should see the horns). Can't tell you why they don't work, could be fuses, horn switch, or the horn itself.

Find horn, remove wire connector from it, try new fuse, push horn again, if fuse blows, you have short somewhere between, if it doesn't, it's the horn.
