Thanks Please or to join the conversation. Do I have a wiring issue from the relay or do I have both a wiring issue from the relay and a bad horn? I will try the hot lead route I did swap relays with no success and checked all fuses both inside and under hood. I actually had this very thing happen to a car I owned and it almost burned to the ground. If there's a short, it can catch the vehicle on fire. Is there just a relay to horn wire kit available someplace? The horn may require more current amps to make a sound than the power probe is able to deliver. As for running separate wires.
Check the horn using the hot wire first. I would use the power probe to check for power going to the horn connector when you activate the horn. Some components may have multiple fuses, so make sure you check all of the fuses that are linked to the component in question. If you don't see power there, then I would suspect a bad horn. It may have just rusted out. Electrical components such as your map light, radio, heated seats, high beams, power windows all have fuses and if they suddenly stop working, chances are you have a fuse that has blown out. Try running a hot lead from the battery to the horn to see if it will blow.

If you need to replace a blown fuse in your Crown Victoria, make sure you replace it with one that has the same amperage as the blown fuse. Some Fords have multiple interior fuse boxes including in the trunk - the video above will show you where the interior fuse box of your 2009 Crown Victoria is located.

So I would think twice about leaving a bad wire in a harness for the horn circuit. When I press the horn I have the clicking relay but no horn, I've tried using a power probe to check the horn but all I get is a little clucking noise and when I check the wiring from the relay to the horn I have a good ground but don't seem to have any power. If your Crown Victoria has many options like a sunroof, navigation, heated seats, etc, the more fuses it has. Sometimes the contacts in the relay go bad, so even if the relay clicks it may not be closing the circuit to the horn. If checking and replacing the fuse for the component in question doesn't work, we recommend seeking assistance from a trusted professional mechanic.
Cap269, thanks for the info. Good luck and keep us posted. They should be able to figure out if the component needs to be replaced or if there is a short or some other problem with your Crown Victoria. Please or to join the conversation. Any help on fixing the issue would be great. If your Crown Victoria is experiencing electrical problems, you should always check the fuses first, because they are relatively easy to check and cheap to change.
Also, the horn is hot all the time, meaning it gets power all the time, even with the car off. Momentarily swap relays and see if the horn works. Did the horn work previously? And, of course, make sure the fuse is good, but if the relay clicks, it is. You just have to trace the wires through the harness and repair any defects found using traditional cut and splice methods. If there's a problem in the harness and say 2 wires are touching causing the problem, then you may have another issue that's not showing up yet. If this is an ex-police car, sometimes the horn wire is cut to install police gear. .
