The horns are located on the left side of the radiator
support. To check them, use a jumper wire from the
+post on the battery unplug the horn and touch the
wire to the horn contact. If it toots check the horn relay in the power dist. box on the left fender. Also
check fuse #4 a 20amp fuse in the same dist box.
But if the horn won't toot replace the horn. If none of
the things I've mentioned pan out. You can get back
to us and we'll dig a little deeper. Good luck.

I have a 98 ford explorer eddie bauer and my horn is no longer working. is this a fuse issue and if so which fuse do i change?


Fuse controlling the horn is usually a 15A fuse located in the Distribution Panel under the dash.
Usually there is a cluster of fuses running 4 across and about 8 down on this panel.
So, look for all the 15A fuses in this cluster and check with a circuit tester.
If you check each side of fuse and get the light...then fuse is good.
If ya get light on one side and not the other...you've got a blown fuse.

Before you do this, disconnect the wire off the horn and connect circuit tester to the horn's power wire / socket and press horn switch on sterring wheel.

If you don't get the light glow...then check your fuses.
If you get the light glow...then your horn is bad...and they do go bad.

Hope this helps.

Horn problem on 2001 ford explorer xlt


Hi there,

Inspect the following components, in this order (with key off) until you get it working:

** Disconnect the plugs from the Horn terminals. Run separate jumper wires from the Batt (NEG & POS), to the horn. If horn does not work, then replace horn. If horn works fine, then continue....

** Check fuse # 10 (15A), in the Battery Junction Box - replace if defective. Check horn operation.

** Check Horn Relay (also in the Battery Junction Box) - remove the relay, give it a gentle tap, and plug back in. Check horn operation.

If all the above prove ok, then the fault lies in your steering wheel/horn switch assembly.


Cheers,

You need an ohm meter and check to see if ther is power at the horns and lights. There is no programming that turns off the horn on the steering column. But I have one of these trucks and had the same problem with the lights and horns but it didn't happen at the same time. My lightbulbs burnt out and the actual horns under the bumper did to. Hope this helps.

Horn does not work


Look for your hood latch its located near the floor on the drivers side at the bottom of the dash. Look up under the dash and there is the fuse panel. Look for any burnt fuses because it could work off of another fuse. Horn should be visible though for you to replace it.
