For sure your cv joint is bad, and that can get expensive, my Subaru has that problem right now, was quoted at least $500 to fix because it messes with the alignment and tire wear and other wear. expensive. I now have a 90 Ford Escort, with a dead battery at the moment. The grinding noise could be a wheel bearing. also replaced those before.

Why would the horn only make a clicking sound on a 1997 Escort?

check your fuse. i had the same problem. that might be it. I doubt a fuse, the clicking is probably the horn relay that you hear. Fair chance the horn or connection at the horn is the problem. The clicking noise is the relay, and since it is clicking I doubt that your switch is bad, so check the fuse and also check the horn (hook it to the battery).

Why would a 1998 Ford Escort horn only make a clicking sound after the blown fuse was replaced?

Sounds like the horn is not making a ground. Did you do anything with the horn? What else didnt work before you replaced the fuse? I have the same problem. Prior to replacing the fuse and getting the clicking back, the horn stuck and ran continuously, which popped the fuse. Another question: where is the actual horn located on a '98 Escort? Thanks. Same problem here. My horn button clicks, but I have constant 12VDC at the horn terminal. The horn itself is behind passenger side headlight, above bumber bracket. Can you say "scraped knuckles?"
