Please open the hood and connect the battery momentarily and the horn will tell you its approximate loca tion with its sound. Just remove one of the wire from the horn and insulate it properly to avoid any short circuiting.

    But I would recommend a check of the short circuiting already there to avoid further damage. By disconnecting the horn we are just treating the result and not the cause. Carry out a thorough check for a possible short in the wiring for the horn. As much as you can. If you locate one then insulate it properly.

1997 Honda CRV horn starts blaring when driving down the road.

Most likely wire inside steering column has rubbed a bare spot and is shorting. Short term fix is disconnect horns. Might check horn relay first by tapping with broom handle of such.

After replacing my battery in my 1998 ford taurus the horn continually blares. I have tried putting the key in the ignition and turning it to on, horn keeps blaring and car won't stop. Also

Your horn relay may be shorting out, making your horn operate all the time. Have a look at your relays. You might find the horn relay is the same as another relay, If it is, try swapping relays with a known good one, and see if the horn operates normally. If so, get a new relay. Good-Day!

I have a 1982 tioga arrow that I just bought and the previous owner had rerouted some belts between the time I test drove it and the time I picked it up. This caused it to overheat on my way home and I had...

Over tightening belts flogs bearing and bushes as too much lateral force is applied.
Re-routing makes me think it's not driving the water pump.
Lastly YES the horn can drain the battery as it can short the plates inside it

Horn in 2004 hyundai elantra keeps going off after car shut off for a few minutes.

I had this same problem with a car I was driving out in 'Frisco.
What a pain!
The problem was a short in the horn button on the steering wheel.
The dealer demanded replacing the horn button, which was PART OF THE AIR BAG ASSEMBLY, AND THAT COST 1.,000 DOLLARS!
After intense arguing, warranty covered it.
If I was faced with this, I get me a blow dryer for your hair and position it to blow inside the back of the steering wheel on LOW heat, so as not to melt the plastic, for about 6 hours.
Anything you can do to dry out the inside of the steering wheel should help.
Be blessed.

My jeep just started blaring its horn in my driveway. No one was near it and the horn is not beep-beep-beep like the panic indicator--it is full out psycho blaring. I unhooked the battery however that is...

It is likely the button in the steering wheel has shorted out. Unless you can get it to stop by pulling up the button, the steering wheel will have to come off for repair; and this requires special tools. In the meantime, you can pull the horn relay out of the fuse box and reconnect the battery.

The horn keeps blaring by itself on my 1997 Dodge Ram pickup, Where do I find the fuse box and which fuse disables the horn?

the horn warning is a legal requirement here in uk and should not be disconnected if it is faulty and would suspect the problem is the press button ?however for time being it would be better unplugging the wire from horn itself ? untill you rectify problem

How to disconnect horn on 1999 honda passport

If you're looking to remove the horn...I don't know off hand. If you're looking to rather just disable it, pull the fuse.

Changed out dead battery and horn wont stop

Changing out the old battery, you may somehow shorted something out in the car. You can check this by seeing if you have any power going to the lights on the car and what ever else that uses the power when you turn on the key. Newer cars like yours usually cant short out, but if the lights and other stuff dont work when your check them, disconnect the battery and look for the fuse panel. Check ALL your fuses and make sure none of them have been blown. You can check that by seeing if the filament in them looks to be burnt or broken as if it popped.
You can also check and make sure that the negative battery terminal is on tight enough. Sometimes a bad ground can mess everything up. As your doing this, before your reconnect your battery, go under the hood of your car and disconnect the horn. This will allow you to work without the horn blaring. To disconnect the horn, its just a wire with an end that simply slides over a metal tab, just give it a pull and it should come right off. You may have two horns so check both sides of the radiator. Hope this helps!

I wonder,, with colder tempratures this time of year, If somehow a connection in the horn pad was shorting out.due to expansion or contraction of a component inside the steering wheel. Try tapping on the top of the air bag on the steering wheel and horn buttons ..this may work ..note this is a guess and I hope this does it the only reason I mentioned it Is because I have seen this two other times...Good luck.
