My horn doesn't work when I hit the steering column switch,

Customer Question
My horn doesn't work...

My horn doesn't work when I hit the steering column switch, but it works to let me know that the car is locked. I have checked the fuse. It is good.

Mechanic's Assistant: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?

Yes, but the owners manual says it is #22 in the passenger side panel

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2014

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've looked at the connections on the horns, they seem to be good. I pulled the horn fuse, it seems to be good.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

more than likely you have a spiral cable bad, but we need to do some checks to figure that out, first things first we need a volt meter for these checks do you have one of those?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
