You may have a short circuit in your horn button causing the
fuse to blow when you press the button or in the horn itself.

1. Locate the horn under the hood normally in the front of
the engine compartment.
2. Once you locate the horn, disconnect the wire from the
horn.
3. connect a VOM (Volt Ohm meter) to the horn's wire.
plus(+) side to the wire and negative (-) side to ground
or some metal part on the car.
4, set the VOM to dc voltage and have someone press the
horn button. You should read 12 volts on the VOM, if
not you have a short in the horn button, if you do mread 12 volts
you have a short in the horn. Replace the horn....

Why does car horn keep blowing when fuse inserted,then blows the fuse?


There is a spring in the steering column. Held with plastic. The plastic breaks. causing to sound off. When the fuse blows it is high resistance . Fixing it is costly and time consuming. Live without it if you can.

Horn keeps blowing on 1995 riveria won't stop till fuse blows


This exact same thing happened to my 1994 Buick Skylark Coupe. It started to go off just now and then, and it wouldn't stop until the fuse blew (like you said), or I literally punched the steering wheel repeatedly and sometimes it would stop. I assumed the horn was shorting out. One day it just stopped working all together. I took it into the dealership and they said that it had in fact shorted out. I bought a new horn kit on eBay, and had it put in by one of my buddies that is a mechanic for a Nissan dealership, and it resolved the issue. I'm guessing your horn is shorting out as well. I'd bet that the same exact horn that is in the 1994 Skylark is also in your 1995 Riveria. Not SURE, but I'm guessing. Check around for a replacement, or ask the dealer if they can order you one. Hope this helps!

What color are the horn wires on a 1997 buick skylark?


From the horn switch (button) it is brown to the horn relay.

From the two horns themselves, the wires are dark green to the horn relay.

From the horn relay to the fuse, the two wires coming from the horn relay are orange.
