Horn occassionally sticks

Hi Pros, my 1999 Ford Falcon Forte horn occassionally stays on when pressed, however to release it, I usually get away with just pressing it once more.
The other problem is that sometimes it will just go off whilst noboby is even in the car. I have swapped the relay and checked the fuses but this does not seem to rectify the problem.....can anybody please help with hopefully a simple solution?

Your contacts are sticking within your steering wheel. When you push on your horn, it creates contact. One of the wires could be loose and causes it to stick. Take off your cover to steering wheel and make sure they are where they are supposed to be. If you have an airbag though, take it to ford to fix.

The horn on my 1999 ford f250 keeps going off by itself.

Likely the relay is stuck. The horn gets 12v when you press the horn button and it energizes the relay to send power to the horn. The horn gets 12v and sends that through the horn and then to ground. There's nothing in the horn to cause it to stay on. The only other possible cause would be a horn button that is stuck in a depressed position or the wire is damaged and is grounded. Any relay you have that has the same dimensions can be used to test if the relay went bad by swapping it out and seeing if the horn blows.

Horn not working in 1999 ford explorer can't find fuse

Horn is up under drivers fender at the front of the car.
Mine was rusted bad and lost good ground contact. I bought an after market horn combo (high/Low) and relocated up in front of the radiator. If you listen to the relay under the hood it should click when you press the horn on the steering wheel, thats how I figured out it must be the horn and not the switching.

Car Horn

Hi djdecks,

I would think that the problem is more likely to be on the hot side of the horn operation, than on the earthing.....Power is fed to the horn and is grounded, completing the circuit, when you press the button....Check first on the horn relay and follow it from there.....I don't believe the problem will be behind the steering wheel, unless the horn sounds all the time....

Best regards Johngee10
