Question about 1988 Ford F 150
Hi. Could you please tell me how to disconnect my 1988 ford escort horn. It's driving me nuts! I will get it repaired as soon as I have the money, but for now I'd like help in disconnecting(I hope it is simple).
P.S. I don't know if my escort is a F150 F250 or F350. It is the 4 door hatchback. Does the hatchback count as a door? If so it's a 5 door.
You will normally find the horn in the engine compartment near the radiator or behind the front bumper. If you have someone press teh horn button while looking under the hood, you should be able to find it very quickly. To disconnect the horn, just disconnect the wires that are attached to it. They should be spade-type connections and should be fairly easy to remove. Make sure the wires can't touch any metal and cause a short while they are disconnected.
Just be aware, in most locations it is against the law to drive a car with an inoperative horn. You can be issued a citation if you are stopped for a safety check.
The shorting problem in the steering column could be caused by a bent contact, a shorted wire, or something that has somehow fallen into the space between the steering wheel and the steering column.
BTW, your escort is not an F150, F250 or F350. The F series are trucks.
