Most likely the problem is in the horn button on the steering wheel. The switch inside the wheel can break or the wire can ground out in the steering column. To verify this, you can interrogae the horn relay socket--see instructions here: http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check . If verified, the steering wheel will have to be pulled off with a puller to access the horn button and wiring for repair. In the meantime, you can remove the horn relay from the engine compartment relay box or unhook the horn connector to stop the noise.

2007 Ford Explorer horn quit working?


suggest checking if 12 volts goes to horn wire at horn end when horn pressed from inside vehicle. A 12 Volt probe {google it} can be a cheap checking tool for this.
If 12v volts is switched when button is pressed {could be earth being switched if it is then place probe on constant 12 volts and negative lead on switched earth wire} then the horn itself is faulty.
If no voltage switched then horn relay needs to be checked. check if voltage at horn relay coil contact when button pressed.
if yes then relay may be faulty. if no then horn switch could be faulty.
you can check switched voltage also at horn relay switched contact when relay plugged in. To see if relay is doing what it is meant to do

I am looking for where my horn is located on my 1992 Ford Festiva.


Your horn will be located below the passenger side headlamp mounting bracket. It has a green/red wire running to it. If the wiring is good than check the horn relay (behind left side of the instrument panel) and also fuse labeled STOP (15 amp). If all of this is good than either the horn switch on steering wheel is bad or the horn itself is bad.

I have a ford festiva, 1992. The horn does not work. I need to check the connections but cannot find the horn under the hood. Can you tell me where to look?


if you lie on your back with the back of your head resting on the ground and the top of your head touching the front of the front passenger wheel, you will be looking straight up at the horn

1999 F350 horn blows all on its own...


I think your horn relay is making contact from behind your horn buttons on your steering wheel. Usually as time creeps up the insulation that is placed on the positive lead for the horn gets worn out from constant horn action. If it is worn down the horn is touching a ground and completing the circuit and thus making the horn sound. I would start with that first before getting more technical. Let me know. Gabe
