Hi
the horn is not working on my 1994 Escort Wagon and I can not find the fuse for the horn. The main fuse box does not have it and i look at the fuse box under the hood. Did they put it someplace else.
does anyone know where it is???
any help would be apprciated.

Are you sure that it is not in the box under the dash on the driver's side? I would have almost bet me first born that that is where it is. I will check my book tonight.

I will check again... the users manual shows it next to the main fuse box but when i look there i don't see it... that space is empty. there is not even a label that says "Horn". so i thought that it was someplace else like under the hood.. but thanks.. i will check again and let you know

Do you hear a click eminating from the dash area when you press the horn? In other words, do you hear the relay clicking when you press the horn. If this is the case, then chances are that your horn has died. If you hear no clicking, then chances are you have blown a fuse or have a bad relay.

I do not hear any clicking sound from the relay so i am guessing that the fuse is blown.. i just don't know where the fuse is so i can check it. Do you know where the fuse is located??

thanks for the help

well I dunno if there is a fuse for the horn, per se, but it might be on the same fuse as another electrical load, or there may be no fuse at all, I dunno...


but another possibility is that the relay is bad. This is less probably than a bad fuse, but do keep it in mind.

The owners manual should have a listing of the fuses. See if horn is on there. If it is and the slot is empty, put a fuse in and see if that works. If for whatever reason there is no fuse for the horn then it is time to get out the multi-meter and find whats bad. But as I said before, I am almost certain that there is a fuse for the horn.

The manual I have says there is a horn fuse, 10 amp, and it is inside the car in the "joint box" which should be somewhere next to the main fuse box. Stupid chilton's manual, doesn't say what exactly a joint box is though.

Just in case it is the relay.....its right on the little metal bracket behind the interior fuse box....beside the 4EAT unit (big, shiney metal box).

A 12mm or 10mm depending on year is the nut holding the bracket to the underside of the dash (its a pain to get out with the 4EAT still in place.)

yes .. the owners manual that i have says there is a horn fuse.. and even shows a location .. but when look there is nothing there and so i might have to get out the meter and search... :(
thanks for your help any ways...
