You could use a test meter or light to see if current is coming thru even when the system is off. That would indicate a ground somewhere like a broken wire rubbing on something. Otherwise it wouldn't hurt to put a higher amp fuse in there; I wouldn't however exceed 10 amps on what's recommended.

Keep blowing horn fuse


There is likely a shorted wire in the circuit, allowing the current to spike and blow the fuse.

When i try to honk the horn on a 2006 honda civic 1.8 L the fuse blows. why would this happen?


The horn may have a short. Try pulling the connector off the horn, put in a fresh fuse, then try to blow the horn. If the fuse blows, the short is in the wiring. If it doesn't blow, you need a new horn. Any more questions, please let us know.

My daughters 1998 honda accord ex keeps blowing fuses she is having to replace the brake light fuse after we replaced the brake light switch when she changed the fuse last the horn blew and she was shocked...


The horn and rear brake lights are on the same fuse. Eventually the horns rust out like on my 1998 CRV. Once I replaced the horns, I could put in a new fuse without it blowing every time I sounded the horn. Problems still remain, namely: the cruise control does not engage and the remote start only starts the engine that runs for two seconds then dies. Still looking for an answer. It's a "Code Alarm" with Codestart dated 11/24/99.

Electrical problem- horn and stop light fuse keeps blowing


With the fuse blowing like that very likely you have short to ground that is one of the wires to the horn or stop lights is making contact with the body of the car.
As for the gear problem, there is a solenoid that is responsible for unlocking the gear shifter when you step on the brake with the key on the run position even if not running.

HELPPPP!


There is a TSB on this issue the horn pad needs to be replaced. See Bulletin below.


Bulletin Number: 93-3-9
Reference Number: 333202
Publish Date: 5/93

Subject:
INTERMITTENT HORN BLOWING WHEN CAR IS COLD (REPLACE CONTACT ASSEMBLY/VINYL PAD)

Models Affected:
1989-93 SUNBIRD AND 1992-93 GRAND AM MODELS

CONDITION
Some owners of 1989-93 Sunbird vehicles and 1992-93 Grand Am vehicles may experience intermittent horn blowing when car is cold.
CAUSE:
This condition may be caused by excessive shrinkage of the contact assembly components when cold. This forces the horn pad contact plates together which activates the horn.

Honda civic 93 brake light fuse breaking


A fuse will only blow if there is too much current draw. It is likely that there is an intermittent short in the wiring for the brake circuit. Do you tow any trailers with lights connected up? They are common for having bad wiring, causing fuses to blow. If not, a auto electrician will need to check the current draw for the brake light system, a quick and easy job, to find out if there is a fault present all the time or just intermittently. Intermittent wiring faults can be very time consuming (read expensive) to find.

Brake Light Fuse


You have a short in the lighting system. Try removing both brake bulbs and with a new fuse installed.. does it still blow the fuse? If not, then install one bulb at a time and repeat the test.. You probably have a short in or around the bulb socket.. Hope this helps
