Where is the horn and what fuses protect it on a Ford Windstar?

Fuses1995-1998 - Fuse #16 on the fusebox inside the vehicle (not the engine compartment)

1999-2003 - Fuse #4 on the fusebox in the engine compartment

1999-2003 - Relay #205 on the fusebox in the engine compartment


Just fixed ours. It is hiding inside the fender behind the left headlight. Accessible by releasing (5 Philips screws) the bottom part of the plastic fender liner, and reaching in. A 1/2 inch socket takes off the bracket, and the wire is connected by the cheapest spade lugs, which had come loose on ours.


It should be behind the splash shield in front of the drivers side tire. Remove the screws from the edge of the shield. Behind this will be pit type fasteners remove these. The horn should be visible. It might be easier to do if you remove the front tire. Then just remove the connector and unscrew or unclip horn. Since the horn is exposed to the weather, the wire connections tend to corrode. Many times just pulling the connector off and scraping the metal will fix the problem.

Another cause

In all probability the air bag clock spring is defective. I strongly recommend that you have a professional repair shop do the repair.

Why they don't work...

Lets start with the basics, did you check fuses? If they are all good, check connections between the horn and harness. You might also have a short in the wires, causing it to not work. As a last resort, you may have a defective horn.

How do you find the car horn and horn relay?

The horn in located below the right side (passenger side) headlight. What you need to do is get a 9/32 socket or something this size, and remove the covering from under the engine compartment. So, lay down on the ground remover the (black ground cover which keeps debris from heading to the engine area) located between the tire and headlight.Once that is off suprise there is the horn.............beep beep

the horn is behind the front bumper or grille somewhere. the relay is probably behind the dash inside the vehicle. when you push the horn do you hear a ticking noise? if you do, follow the ticking noise to find the relay.(it makes the noise)if it makes the noise, it probably works and you should check the wire connection to the horn unit. it looks like a nautilus, sort of a coil resulting in one open end, pointing is about the size of your hand. if it does not make a noise it would probably be your horn fuse or your switch.

How do you fix the horn on a Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable?

the horn relay is in the center, behind the instrument panel, mounted on a brace

For 1996-1999 Taurus / Sable, the horn relay is on fuse #19 in the Power Distribution Box in the engine compartment

This is well detailed and illustrated in the Owners Manual - See "Related Questions" below for more

Not working?If your horn is not working, it could be the wire connectors need cleaning. Find the horn in the very front corner underneath the passenger side headlight area. The connectors just push on - pull them off and clean the metal blade the connector attaches to.

Did that on my 1998 Sable 3 years ago and haven't had a problem since.

On my 98 Sable, it's up under the passenger side of the engine compartment - way towards the front.

Maybe the 2003 is still in the same neighborhood.

pop the hood on the car, and with the engine off have someone try to honk the horn. have them listen on the inside of the car and you listen on the outside of the car. if either one of you hears a clicking noise (anywhere other than the steering wheel) then you know that it is most likely your actual horn assembly under the hood, probably mounted by the radiator somewhere. if there is no clicking noise you either have a blown fuse, a bad relay, or a faulty wire connection.

1996-1999The horns are on the way front - passenger side, just behind the bumper cover.

After confirming the fuse is good, check the wire connections to the horns. Mine were corroded and only one of the pair would work whenever it felt like it.

I pulled the connectors off and scraped at them with a screwdriver - enough to improve the contact and they have worked reliably since.

It is located in slot #30 it is a 15A. Look in the fuse box under the drivers side above the brake pedal.

How do you remove the horn relay switch?

There will be a small lock tab on the switch plug. Some need to be pushedin, some need to be pried out, and I have on some Japanese connectors you squeeze on the sides to release. A small flat screwdriver is the best tool for releasing lock tabs.

How do you find the horn relay on a '96 Honda Civic EX?

The relay center should be in hte engine compartment. Once you open the hood and are facing the front of the car look to the back left by the hood hinge. You should see a black box that has a diagram on it. Take the cover off and use the diagram on the cover to pinpoint which relay is the horn. Hope that helps.

Yes, there's a fuse + relay box in the engine bay, but that's not where the horn relay is.

Horn relay is on the under-dash fuse panel. Left (driver's side, in the USA) side of car. Horn relay is way up at upper edge of the panel, mounted on a tab so it's sort of off the edge of the panel. Relay has a gray housing with a 4-wire connector going to it. Squeeze tab on the connector lets you pull it off the relay. Squeeze tab at base of relay lets you pull it off the panel base.

How do you fix a horn that does not work on a 1995 Pontiac Sunfire?

It could be a number of things. Check the fuse,then use a test light and touch it to the contacts on the horn under the hood while someone blows the horn. If it lights up its the horn itself. If no light it could be the horn relay in the fuse box or the part you push on the steering wheel. usually it's the relay or a loose wire.

or not listen to someone who knows nothing about your problem. the horn has power at all times and operates by the circuit creating a ground. if you don't know i suggest you don't touch.

New HeadlineFor 2003 Sunfire the problem was isolated to the horn pad. Best to disable airbag when working in this area. My horn pad came off by using a screw driver to move aside a shiny metal wire in each of four holes on the back of the steering wheel. Look with a mirror and you'll see the holes and the spring retainer (wire). The pad pushes back in place when and re-engages the retainers when the job is done. There is a wire on a male plastic connector that quarter-twist fits into a female socket on the steering wheel. This wire close the circuit when the pad is pressed. In my case the socket had cracked. My fix was to use a little glue. It works (last 6 mos) but may not be the best solution. The other option, if the dealer understood my need, and I'm pretty sure he did, was to replace the broken part. I was informed by the Ponitac deaer (as I understood him) that the part is integral to the column. Because of liability with respect to airbag, the whole steering column needed to be replaced; part cost $1000.00. Glue seemed like an ok idea.

Where is the horn on a 1987 Camaro 2.8 ltr V6?

The horn is mounted to the frame behind the left (driver) side front fender just in front of the tire. If you have wheel well shroud, you won't see it. You'll have to lay on the ground and look up into the opening to see it. There will be either be 1 or 2 horns. I forgot to mention that you can also see the horn(s) in an opening just behind the driver side headlights. The mounting bolts are on the engine bay side and is easily accessible.

by: Bobby

from: relayi am not sure they have a relay for the horn on that one.. i thought that the circuit has a horn, a fuse, then the steering wheel sliding contact, then the airbag.. usually when they stop working, its the horn wire right behind the drivers airbag, it pops out of its connector.Add a message posted: 2004-02-25 01:16:23

On the '96 Sunfire the horn relay is located under the dash behind the glove box. I was able to get to it by removing a small plastic plate held by three screws and reaching up and to the [passenger door] side under/behind the glove box.

How do you replace horn in 1997 chevey cavalier?

Jack up the rider front side of the car. Remember to follow all safety guidelines for jacking the car into the air, and as always put on your rear brakes to further secure the car from rolling while your under it. From the front riders side get under the car and look up right behind the bumper, and you will see the horn attached sideways to a bracket. Unscrew the one holding nut, and then disconnect the wire from the horn assembly. Pull the horn out, and that's it. To check to see if the horn itself is faulty, use a jumper wire to jump the connection to the battery. Assembly is the reverse of disassembly.
