Yes you can check the fused . --- but that does not tell me why the fused blow on it own , it could be arelay or the problem is in the steering wheel----- if you find the horn easy , take it out and test it to see if it working. reply

1997 mercury tracer o2 sensor removal

Replacement of oxygen sensors on a 1997 Mercury Tracer LS. Sell the Tracer and buy a Ford Focus, or 2010 Chevy Cobalt, or a new Chevy Cruze, or a Ford Fiesta. This solution is best if your Tracer has over 130,000 miles on it.

Could be a few thing's , relay sticking ( contacts inside burnt ) intermittant short on the ground wire ,does the vehicle have a content theft system alarm ? could be a input problem to the GEM - generic electronic control module . Looking at a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in the control of the horn an using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter to test the electrical circuits . Do you know how to do that ? Free wiring diagrams here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on interior & driver amenity ,then under subsystem click on horn .I see the RAP module not GEM module for alarm system . Your best bet mite be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . If you do not know how to test the electrical circuits .

Check the blower resister and blower motor connection located under the passenger side of the dash.they have a tendency to get burnt up due to a poor connection .:)

97 dodge 3500 bumper changed no horn i cant locate wiring

They've always been green or green with a black tracer. I think they're both on the passenger side closer to the radiator. If they used to work and now they don't the wires maybe got pinched and then blew a fuse? I can't believe both horns stopped working at the same time.
I hope this helps
