  • The horn relay might have welded contacts (stuck in the on position). Pulling the relay should stop the horn.
  • The wiring harness on the steering column might have a broken wire to the horn relay shorting to someplace that applies power to the relay. In this case, turning the steering wheel all the way to one side or the other may stop the horn, and it won't sound when you press the horn button.
  • The horn button in the steering wheel is stuck on or shorted.

When i start my 96 mustang gt the horn is blowing


PATS does not blow the horn. Pull the horn fuse to see if that stops the draw. Then troubleshoot the horn circuit to see where the power is coming from. You can start at the horn relay. The relay gets a ground signal from the horn switch in the steering wheel. If that signal is constant, the problem is upstream of the relay--perhaps within the steering wheel. Do not remove the steering wheel to troubleshoot without disarming the airbag.

Could be the horn pad on the steering wheel, or a wiring problem in the column.

Horn fuse keeps popping


Turn key off, locate and unplug horn, install known good fuse and or ckt. brkr, push horn button, if fuse does not blow replace horn assy. If fuse blows you have a short on circuit wires. A well trained electrical tecnician should have no problems finding it, plus you'll need schematics. Good luck!!!

Yes that sounds typical of slip ring and contact in steering wheel. If you have an air bag CONSULT MANUAL for removing steering wheel. AIR BAGS CAN KILL

Horn do not blow , I changed the fuse, could it be a wiring problem, all other lights works.


Apply power directly to the horn
If it does not blow the horn(s) are bad
If horn does blow then:
1. horn switch on steering wheel is bad
2. relay not engaging
3. possible interrupt in power or ground

Horn blows when turning steering wheel


You most likely have a broken wire under your steering wheel horn push housing and it's grounding itself during rotation of steering wheel , it may also be a spring broken on the horn push assy and the columb assy may be worth a peep . Good luck

Horn just stop blowing,won't blow


When you press on the horn button do you hear the horn relay click? The start at the horn, bench test it, if it works then check for power, is the fuse good and is the relay ok. If the stuff checks out then it may be the horn contacts behind the steering wheel.
