Most mechanics would agree that if your car horn does not work, there are no large problems with the car you should be worrying about.

A car horn is however, important to communicate with other drivers, so it is very important to stop by a mechanics, oil change, or even tire retailer to get the horn fixed.

If you deactivate the horn your car will not pass the state inspection next time. In order to get rid of the problem you have to reprogram the alarm system. For that you have to find out which alarm system you have. If you have an aftermarket alarm system then you can check the alarm system manufacture website for instructions. If the alarm system was installed by the manufacture you have to contact a local car dealer (the same manufacture of course).

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 do you hear sound of an approaching car before the car reaches us?

This is a rather general question, but the reason for this is because the car is travelling slower then the speed of sound, and so the sound of the engine and the wheels against the surface travels faster then the car itself, hence why you will hear it before the actual entity reaches you.
