Re: 2004 Ford explorer XLT horn shorting
Electrical problems are the worst to have.....
Your best bet is to pikc up a repair manual, OR find out what else connects to that particular fuse. Make sure the proper AMP rated fuse is used, and if it is, then there's most likely a short somewhere with the horn. I'm not sure if there are two horns or just the one, they're generally in front of and beside the radiator. Get a flashlight and inspect the wiring. You might be able to oHm out the fault and it might be something as simple as a bad horn. If the wiring is exposed through the front grille, it can lead to an electrical short over time should the wire casing become brittle, etc.
