Customer Question
The horn is randomly...

The horn is randomly going off while sitting or driving. I disconnected relay for horn as well as the horn fuse, but then the truck would not shift out of park.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

325.000. It has been starting normally.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 325?

325,000 miles on the truck

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 325 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I just started having this problem. Right now I have pulled the fuse and relay related to the horn and the truck is parked at home. I pulled the fuse out on the side of the road, and the truck would not shifted out of park. Then when I put the fuse back in, the horn actually went off for a second and then stopped.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That should be it.

What Customers are Saying:

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.

MollyUSA

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.
