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?"

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).

What is the loud ticking sound when you accelerate when you have a bad head gasket?

I'm in the process of fixing a blown head gasket on my 1994 Pontiac Grand Am GT I'm pretty sure the clicking you're talking about is probably the sound of your engine missing.When coolant gets into the cylinders it causes the engine to misfire.If I were you I wouldn't worry about the clicking noise so much as the fact that you're driving with a blown head gasket and ruining your engine.I'd at least get some head gasket sealant from Autozone if nothing else.
