MY 2002 FORD ESCORT'S CRUISE CONTROL AND HORN SUDDENLY STOPPED WORKING. THE FUSES ALL CHECK OUT. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?


there is two sets of fuses on this car i think. The centre console lights are on fuses inside the car under the dash, is your interior light not working either?

The horn does not work at all on 1999 escort


I am assuming you have checked the Fuse Box under the hood for the Horn Fuse and / or the Horn Relay and made sure both are good?

You can always try the steps outlined in this video to replace the horn pad. to see if this is your issue if you have exhausted all of your other resources.

Or You can try these steps to further diagnose your issues:

The horn relay on ZX2's is located underneath the dashboard on the drivers side. There are several relays located there - identify the horn relay by the "clicking" sound it makes when the horn is pressed. The likelyhood that you have a bad relay is minimal. Start by checking the horn fuse (the fuse box is located under the dash on the driver side). Next, check the relay. If the relay is making a clicking noise, it is probably OK. The next thing to check is the horn itself. it is located on the passenger side of the vehicle, up underneath the front bumber. Most instructions say to remove the bumber cover to get to the horn, but this is not neccesary. In my experience with Escort horn problems, the problem has been with the horn "switch", a wafer thin piece of plastic that lies between the steering wheel cover and the airbag assembly. Below are instructions for replacement of this switch - don't be intimidted by the procedure - it is not difficult.

You cannot buy a horn switch at a dealer - they tell you that the horn switch is part of the airbag assembly, which cost $450 plus. Understandably, Ford doesn't want people "messing around" with airbags. Go to a junk yard - you can eazily find and remove the horn switch from an Escort who's airbags have already deployed. I bought two of them for $5. Identify and remove the junkyard horn switch by reading step 7 below. This is an eazy fix if you follow these instructions. Should take about 10 minutes. I replaced my "stuck" 97 Escort horn switch as follows...
1) Disconnect negative battery cable, wait for at least 1/2 hour for residual power discharge before proceeding to net step (IMPORTANT!). This will disable the airbag. Neglecting this step could cause serious injury or death!
2) Remove two 10mm bolts directly behind the steering wheel - one on left, one on right. These secure the airbag unit.
3) carefully lift the airbag unit out of the steering wheel.
4) remove two small star-screws at bottom of airbag unit using star end screw driver - the horn wires enter the airbag unit next to these screws
5) pry the airbag cover (this is the front part of the steering wheel cover with the horn picture on it) off of the plastic tabs of the airbag unit, on the left & right sides - should come off very eazily.
6) now you can lift the airbag cover up (there are three rivets that continue to hold the top portion of the cover in place)
7) the horn switch, which is covered by a thin layer of dark foam, is a very thin plastic pad with two wires coming out (same wires as step 4). You can see wafer thin copper strips inside the plastic. The switch is held in place by three small plastic tabs. Remove the switch and disconnect the wires at the red connector inside the steering wheel.
8) replace horn switch with junkyard switch
9) re-assembly is the reverse of the removal.
This procedure should apply to 97 through 2002 Escorts, including the ZX2. Hope this helps someone save some money.

Was in an a car acident in my 96 ford escort. The air bags did go off. Still able to drive, except the horn will not stop going off. I can't find a fuse for the horn.


the horn fuse also runs the shift lock. Recommend you see if you can find the horn relay in the box by the battery and pull that out. If not that, you can always pull the connectors off the horns. The horns are usually in the grille area or in the fender near the headlights.

Horn relay location 1999 Ford Escort


Hi!!
Check on the engine compartment fuse box by the battery, remove the plastic cap and look on the inside for the fuse location and description diagram. It should be labeled HORN. Check the Fuse first and then the Relay. To check the Relay, just swap it with another one with the same numbers on top of the relay. After testing, don't forget to replace the Relays to their original location. No need to turn key on since it is an Hot At All Time Circuit.
On some vehicles the Horn Fuse and Relay are located in the fuse box under Instrument Panel, driver's side.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Where is the fuse for horn on ford escort as it isnt working what else could cause horn not to work


Hi! You may want to start looking at the fuse box located underneath the dash on the driver's side. The fusebox cover usually has a legend that tells you the designated fuses and amperes. Replace the horn fuse if busted. Have a nice day

Check the horn relay
  • Horn relay located above the interior fuse junction panel. Hope this helps. Also check the ground wire to horn, if in doubt run a wire from horn base to some other ground.
