The most common cause of this is that the horn coil is shorted out, replace the horn, if u have 2 disconnect them one at a time, when u disconnect the bad one the short will go away, replace that horn

My 02' mdx won't come out of park, keep blowing a 20 amp fuse. This fuse controls the Cruise, break lights, memory seat, horn and linkage. I have to manually delink. I have unhooked the comand...

Here is an idea, when do you blow the fuse key on, key on engine running, key on engine running hitting the break pedal? Try and get the key on without blowing fuse if possible, then one at a time try those circuit loads ie: horn, brake pedal and so on, if you isolate which load is pulling to many amps(blowing fuse) unplug that load itself, then restart testing, see if fuse stays ok. You can also substitue the fuse with a circuit breaker and unplug each load until click(of breaker) stops.

The horn does not blow and when I replace the fuse it may blow once or twice but the fuse blows again.

you may have a short in one of the horn them self . the easy to test is to unplug both horns then see if the fuse blows. if not plug in the horn one at a time . and see which one blows the fuse . replace the one that dose. if you have only one horn still do the test.

Hi, Trying to locate the fuse for the horn? Is anything else run off that same fuse? I would like to disconnect it do to a short. Sometimes when I turn the steering wheel to the left the horn blows for a...

If you can't find the fuse in the fuse box, try looking in the breaker/ relay box. It is usually a 30 amp, big fuse, for the horn, and there shouldn't be anything with it, but you never know. The breaker box is near the battery or in the engine comp. I don't know exactly where they stuck yours, but most cars are close. Hope this helps.

99 dodge durango. My horn keeps blowing the 20 amp fuse under hood. There is also a horn relay. Could that be the problem? The horn will work after I replace the 20 amp, but blows within a few times of...

could be you might check it out. many items take the same relay so you might try exchanging it with another one with the same numbers. If that isn't it you may have a short in the horn itself.

Horn blows fuses

Don't bypass the fuse, you'v either got a short in the horn or the wrong fuse
it takes a 20 amp and I highly ecommend using a plug in breakr instead of a fuse

Put in a breaker, if it trips unplug the horn and try again, if the breaker trips again, there's a pinched wire, if it does NOT trip replace the horn itself

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.
