    Thank you - I did receive your PDF however, it does not mean anything to me. I am a beginner at best. I look down and cannot see the horn (S)? I need to either trouble shoot the problem or replace it all together... The PDF is a diagram and I cannot relate it to what I see under the hood. Please help me further if possible.. Thanks again..

    Thank you very much, I certainly appreciate your time & patients.. By the way, my wife says she hears a humming noise when she is driving as well. What could this be? I see a leak on the right side of the radiator so I believe a new one is in order . This car has about 100,000 miles.



    Thank you,

Horn not working


First check fuse. If fuse good you need to locate horns. You have 2. Either one is fine to check for power when you hit horn button. Between bumper & grill,underneath in engine compartment locate 1 or both. They are black& plastic. Run your test light clamp to ground. Unclip wire harness on horn. Insert pointed end in connector. If you get power when horn is applyed you need 1 or both horns.If you get no power to either horn, you need to check horn relay for power in & power out when you apply. If power in & no power out when you apply, you need relay.

Were is the horn on a mercury tracer 1998


the horn is not the problem here, this is

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.
