Horn Problems of Ford Focus
Ford Focus owners have reported 6 problems related to horn (under the communications category).
Horn problem #1
The vehicle is a 2009 Ford Focus. I purchased the above vehicle in 2009 new. I have driven it 43000 miles so far and 2 to 3 months ago I started having problems with the horn. The horn is mounted to the frame right front towards the bottom. Rain or water had managed to get into the horn due to it's location. Instead of a loud sound you can barely hear it since when I pulled it off, it was full of water. This is a safety item since it is used to warn others. The failure date was Jul. 2, 2012.
Horn problem #2
I own a 2004 Ford Focus zts, purchased new in June, 2004. Since purchase, I have had the horn replaced twice,meaning the car has it's 3rd horn. The problem appears to be water entry into the horn itself, possibly shorting out the device. The water could be from a car wash, or from water entry while driving in rain. This is a safety defect, in that I have no idea whether the horn works or not until I attempt to use it. This could be a major issue if I need to warn someone of my presence. This problem occurred on Fri., Feb. 4, 2005.
