How do I fix the horn on my 1964 Ford Thunderbird


check for 12 vots of power at the horn itself when pressing the horn button. If there is a reading then replace the horn unit. If there is no reading at the unit I would suspect no contact in the horn button/control itself.

Horn in 2009 focus sound weak


Check that the two wire connectors are firmly pressed into the metal tabs on the horn. If not, your battery could be low (but your engine would barely turn over if your horn is so weak). Most likely, your horn is nearly dead (the permanent magnets in your horn have gone bad from rust - water damage- or too much heat).

Horns not working,original relay 43yrs old !


You hear clicking at horns, and not the relay? Maybe the horns went bad, or maybe you need to check and clean the connections there.
Don\'t know why the cab light went dim, unless the horn wire was trying to make contact?
Yes, TJ, the horn wire should be hot. You are grounding that hot wire when you press for the horn. That hot wire comes from the coil side of the horn relay. Press for horn, it grounds the coil side of relay, and the relay can pass power to the horns.
Now back to the clicking no-honker horns: power gets to the horns when relay is energized, and there has to be a good ground for horns to work. I don\'t know if your horns are case grounded or a wire from horns goes to ground, but check the ground there. If case grounded, pull horns off and clean the ground. Also might try a known good horn. Keep at it, sounds like you are almost there.

HOrn makes a noise but very weak noise. should i replace the horn or horn relay?


Run a thick wire straight from the battery to the positive terminal of the horn. If the horn sounds normal, replace the relay. If the horn is still weak, locate the adjustment screw and play with that to try improve the tone, if that does not work or if there is no screw, replace the horn,

Jerome, look for the blast horn see if can can determine which wire is power and disconnect it, should be silent then, you will have to disable the alarm once power is restored, then reconnect and reset if desired.
