You would have to unplug the horn to stop it from blowing or take out the fuse. The problem could be in the steering column or the switch. These are the start points to check and find the problem. Take off your pad where the switches are and unplug the wire to the switch and see if the horn still blows. If it does it the problem may be in the column or the wiring. If you are not familiar with the steering column take your car to a shop. The steering column is not something you want to mess with if you are not sure of the workings of the column.

Where is the horn fuse for a Kia 1999 Sportage?


The Horn relay is in the relay block behind the driver's knee airbag. You have to unscrew / move the driver's knee airbag to expose the relay block.

My horn just stopped working.i happen not to have the fuse diagram for my bmw e90 320d 2005..where can i get one.


The horns wiring goes through the many springs and brushes touching the rings inside your steering column. When my horn stops working i pull my steering wheel off to see what is going on. Next the wires pass through the ignition box where dozens of wires turn on when you start the car. This box often fails in an aging vehicle. Where did you get the idea that there is a fuse for the horn?

My horn sounds off and won't stop 'til I disconnect battery cable. Why?


sounds like there's a short in your wiring in the steering column, A lot of times with a tilt wheel a wire get loose or gets a short in it. the steering wheel may have to come off to fix the problem but make sure to disconnect the airbag first, I'm not sure what vehicle you have so I don't know where to tell you to look for the connection, may be best to take to a dealership if possible. Hope this helps.

1995 Volvo Horn keeps blowing with key in ingnition, and engine running


You can do this for now so its not driving you crazy, then get it fixed.
If your car horn starts blaring and seems to be "stuck" (it won't stop blowing), you could be in for a few embarrassing moments. There's nothing quite like the stares and expressive hand gestures you can draw as your horn takes on a life of its own. There are a couple of things you can do to get the horn to stop.
If it got stuck when you pressed on the horn switch on the steering wheel, it could be because the switch itself is stuck. Press the horn switch again, or tap it a few times to see if it gets unstuck.
Turn off the engine and look for your fuse box. Look through the circuit descriptions and see if you can find one for the horn. If you can, pull the fuse. This should silence the horn immediately.
If you can't find the fuse box, can't remove the fuse, or the horn doesn't turn off, then you need to resort to more drastic measures. Open the hood of the car and try to locate the horn. If the rear of the horn is visible, you might be able to see the wires that lead to it. Disconnect the wires. If you can't disconnect them, then cut one of the wires. If you cut the wire, wrap the resulting two ends of the wire with tape so that they can't short out your electrical system.
You could disconnect the main wires that run to your battery. You shouldn't cut these but should disconnect them using a wrench. This might "reset" the horn. Hook the wires back up and if the horn doesn't turn back on, you should go directly to an auto repair shop to figure out what is going on. If the horn does turn back on, you'll need to locate and disconnect (or cut) the wires to the horn as previously described. Then, go to the auto repair shop and let them replace the horn for you.

Chevy Avalanche horn stopped working


you may have bad horn, take a test light and see if power is going to horn when horn is pushed, if theres power going to it then you have a bad horn,if theres no power to it then check the horn relay. but il bet if the fuse is good then the horns are bad.

Install the battery by connecting the positive cable first,then the negative.If this does not work,do it vise-versa.connect the negative first,then the positive cable.If this does not work,connect the battery,and then insert the key and start the engine,if horn stops,let it run for about a minute,then turn the ignition off and remove the key.

Horn not working


Did it just stop working one day? A horn is mostly solid state and rarely just stops working. First place to check is the fuse panel. Make sure the fuses are good. If the fuse is good, you may have a bad relay. To test that, get a volt meter or test light and connect it to the two leads going to the horn. (the horn will usually be in the front of the car, behind the bumper or inside the wheel well. Get under the car and look up inside the front. It should be in there somewhere). When you have the test light on the leads, turn the key on (not th engine) and have someone depress the horn button. If you get power to the two leads, it's time for a new horn. Good luck.
