Our horn keeps staying...

Our horn keeps staying on. When the truck is turned off or on all of the sudden the horn starts honking steady. What can we do?

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yes, we had to actually in hook the battery cable to get it to shut off.

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

2016 F 150

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

We tried to hit the panic button and finally had to unhook the battery cables. When we re hooked them up, it started honking again.

  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Is this a pulsing horn or staying constant on?

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.
