Is there a way to fix the horn on a 1995 Town Car if it stuck when car door was locked with the remote?
I have just suffered the (horn suddenly blows continuously) on a
97. In this case, the small springs used in the horn switch (in the
center of the steering wheel) broke at 4:30 one morning. Pulled the
horn relay (in the Relay Center, right side under hood) to stop it.
Dealer said the Airbag unit would need to be replaced ($490 +
labor), horn button cannot be repaired. Why would Ford do something
as stupid as make the horn buttoon an integreal part of the Airbag
? I removed battery ground, and the Airbag assembly, disconnected
both cables, and cutoff the cable going to the horn button. Drilled
a 7/16" hole in the top of the steering wheel rubber center cavity.
Soldered the horn connector cut wires to a RS part #275-646
pushbutton switch, force fit into the hole, reconnected the cables,
reinstalled the Airbag unit, reconnected battery ground. Now I
press the nice black button on top of the wheel hub to blow the
horn. Saved well over $500. Stan
