Hi,

I have a 1999 Focus 1.8, CL TD DI

I only bought It last night, and I was informed that the horn didn't work?
When I hit the horn, I hear a 'clicking' sound coming from the passengers side? within the Car....

Any Ideas? A fuse maybe? I'm con-fused.


Cheers!

The horn probably got water in it and died, I've gone through 3 of them. Try replacing the horn....they're pretty cheap.

if it clicks the fuse is good. mine did the same thing...here's a solution. I went to the local auto store and purchased for $25 long trumpet air horns and mounted them in the same places the old ones were. Works great :D

Put a test meter across the horn connection..if there's power when you press the horn on the wheel, it's the horn itself, if not...further up.

The clicking is the relay, which means you're getting power. So the horn is no good. When I changed mine , I mounted it in a higher location. You can remove the front headlight for better access. Might have to extend the wires a bit. They way Ford has them, water splashes up inside. It may take a while, but eventually they get damaged.

Ah-Ha...

Thank you very much Terry!

This is very useful information.. I haven't managed to locate the horn, so based on your information, I think the horn is located someplace near the lights?

I'll buy a new horn, before I remove the old one. The fuses are all good, so I get it's the tooter!

Cheers in advance!

Generally behind the lower grille. Exact location may vary by year and model.
