Horn Fuse intermittent

Last one for tonight guys

My horn fuse has always acted up. i can put a new fuse in, drive around for months, it will be just fine. once i use the horn, i can beep it as many times as id like, at some point after the beeping is over the fuse will blow. Its strange cause it will be fine until i need it, then i can use it to my enjoyment, then later down the road, at some point, the fuse will be blown.... everything else electrical is normal...


I can hear the relay clicking when i push the wheel pad...

Relays do click, they are mechanical. You can hear it click all the way inside the car??? Do you hear it click when the fuse is good or bad? Sounds like a short somewhere. They can be a PITA to find but are usually in easy to find spots.

Is it the relay clicking or the switch in the horn pad clicking?

I would be a little suspicious of a relay that clicked so loud that you could hear it through the firewall and the fuse box. Sounds like to might have a short somewhere. I would start by looking at the horns. They do get a lot of weather where they are located. Then try looking behind the horn pad on the steering wheel. I have found a lot of electrical problems in the easy spots. Either bare wire or some kind of "junk" causing a short.
