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!

do you have a remote for it? if so hit the unlock button. if not, cycle the key in the door cylinder. the disarm switch is connected to the cylinder/latch so that should shut it off.

1998 Ford Escort steering wheel lock will not unlock. Seems jammed.

The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

I put a new battery in my 1998 toyota camry and when i opened the door the alarm went off and i tryed locking and unlocking the door and trunk but it still wont go off and the car wont crank

That happen to all the time when I work with cars that have an aftermarket alarm.
First; disconnect the battery again and locate the override switch by the steering column lower panel, got to be there somewhere.

Now reconnect the battery, press that switch and turn the key on. that little procedure would reset the aftermarket alarm.

My door chime wont stop ringing when the driver side door is open and the keys are out of the ignition. how can i fix this?

I just found out that the problem on our 1998 windstar was the chime switch attached to the ignition switch. This chime switch when dislodged will short and act as if the keys are still on when the door is open ( thus sounding off the alarm). I had a hunch that the problem was close to the steering wheel because the alarm would stop if I change the angle of the steering wheel a couple of notches up or down. I guess when i did that the chime switch that i'm pertaining to get reset to the right position and stops the alarm. when i opened up the steering wheel housing around the ignition , the chime switch fell, it had a blk wire I think, and I saw that the clips on it were kind of melted thus not sticking to its right position. I just had to remove the ignition switch for a while and replaced the chime switch with the help of a zip tie wrapped around it. then I placed every part back together and no chimes... also I did this all while the battery was disconnected because i needed the ignition switch to be in the on position to get it off the steering wheel. Good luck guys!

Ignition key will not turn

turn the wheel left or right and see if it turns check the key if it's bent or wiggle the key at the same time it might get frustrating but it might turn had a chevy do it all the time on me.If not you will need a new ignition switch and keys.

Door chime wont stop

thgis problem is caused by one or more defective door ajar/courtesy light switches or sliding door contacts, since these switches are very hard to replace as they are located inside the doors on the door latch the best thing to do is have the dealer hook up a body module scanner, it can ID the faulty switch, then i f wish u can change it to save money, the switches are about $15 each, there are 5 of them
