It thinks it was stolen , security. Hook the battery up and then turn the car on. This should stop the horn and reset the security.

It sounds like your alarm maybe turning on. Insert the ignition key into the ignition and turn it to on, the alarm should shut off, if it is your alarm causing the Horn to be on.

How do i get the horn to turn off when reconnecting the battery


When you connect the new battery, are you connecting the positive cable first? if not, you'll need to.

Why the interior lights want go off in thr cadallac deville 98


Could be a bad fuse, battery or alternator. If they went off and stayed off then it's probably a fuse. If they dim off and on then it's probably the alternator and/or battery but I would replace the alternator first.

Good luck!!

94 VW Golf horn stays on with fuse pulled, I just got this car and tried to install a new battery when I connect it the horn sounds.I checked the fuse panel and pulled # 13 that was for the horn and it...


What your hearing is the factory alarm not the horn. Connect the battery when the alarm sounds go to the drivers door lock with the key and lock and unlock the door until the alarm goes off . Then reinstall the fuse for the horn.,

Trying to install new batery and the minute I put the second cable to battery the horn starts going off How do I stop this. I thought I disconected the horn but it keeps going off


Install the battery by connecting the positive cable first,then the negative.If this does not work,do it vise-versa.connect the negative first,then the positive cable.If this does not work,connect the battery,and then insert the key and start the engine,if horn stops,let it run for about a minute,then turn the ignition off and remove the key.

98 cadillac deville battery wont hold a charge


sounds like a 12V drain on the system, like a trunk or glove box light that won't shut off.> Could be many. many other reasons why. The way I would find the draining circuit would be to remove the neg cable of the battery. I then would connect a 12V test light between the neg battery TERMINAL and the neg battery CABLE. With a 12V drain the light will shine. I would install into the light a 9V battery powered recepticle to hold computer and radio station memory. Then I remove fuses 1 at a time, then reinstall, at the same time looking for the 12V light to go out. Hope this helps.
