SOURCE: Need to tow 04 mazda rx 8

Top left and right corners of the front grill pull away to reveal the fixing holes. Make sure you WD40 the threads as Mazda coat the threads with paint. insert towing eyes and turn slowly unscrew and screw a bit at a time as you have a good chance of cross threading if you don't. Keep lubricating as you go. Make sure you take the plastic inserts off completely before towing as you will loose them when towing. replace when completed towing. Good luck and hope what ever the reason for towing it is not serious.

SOURCE: horn fuse keeps blowing out

Check the wiring around the horn and make sure nothing is touching metal...look under the hood at the horn and make sure everything is pluged in and there is no water on any plugs or wiring...Make sure the fuse is the correct number (ex: 10, 20, 25) If it is still blowing out the fuse then you after you do some checking then it is a short in some wires

SOURCE: 2008 Ford Escape Horn Fuse keeps blowing after

I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse and the car body. This would indicate a short in the wire running from the fuse box to the horn. You can also look around the alternator mounting area to see if any wires are being pinched. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Horn bad


First check the horn fuse in the fuse box to make sure your problem is not a bad fuse. to replace the horns, unplug the electrical connector and remove the bolt. for location of the high-pitch horn, check the left hand forward part of the subframe. for the low-pitch horn location, check right side of the subframe.

the easiest way to solve this is to replace the whole fuse block or if you cant afford that you could try higher amp fuses but i dont reccomend it long term

Horn doesnt work


Lift the hood of the truck. Locate the fuse box and lift the cover. Check the horn fuse listed on the cover of the fuse box. If the fuse is blown replace it. Have someone press the horn and listen for a faint click from the relay or swap the relay with another one with the same part number (IGN or AC) to test the relay. If you hear a faint click the horn switch on the steering wheel is good. If the horn works after swapping it with another, the relay is bad and you should order a new one. Remove the horn connector and check the voltage with a 12 volt lamp connected to the two wires or a volt meter when someone presses the horn switch. You can also directly wire the horn to the battery to see if it sounds. If it does not sound the horn is defective. If you do not have voltage check the black ground wire on the horn connector to see if it has zero ohms, or if you connect the 12 volt lamp from the black horn wire to the +12 of the battery the lamp should light. If not your ground wire is bad. I hope this helps you find your problem, but if you have any questions post a comment and I will answer your question.

Need to find the horn relay in a 1993 ford mustang gt I tested the horn and all fuses. I don't have a wiring diagram and chiltons doesn't show the horn circuit


94 was a new model freshening and I have 94. may be similar.

Horn Relay and fuse is in fuse box in engine compartment, driver side in front of strut tower.

Horn System The horn system includes:
  • Dual horns (13832) (one high pitched, one low pitched).
  • Horn blow switch (13A875) which grounds the horn relay, which energizes the horns .

04 CooperS: Horn does not work


Check the fuse first. should be in the drivers footwell. Make sure that it is not blown. 90% of the time fuse will just blow due to high resistance from one of the horns. There is a high and low horn often it requires to replace one and try the horn and see if it blows. Then replace the horn that blows the fuse.
