I parked my 1996 Saturn Sc2 along a street and went into work. When I was headed out to my car a few hours later, I heard a car horn that sounded like it was about to fail. I soon realized that it was my car's horn that was sounding. I entered the vehicle and tried to quiet the horn by pressing the horn buttons. Nothing happened. I opened the hood on the car to see if there was anything I could do to stop the horn from sounding. Although the horn was very weak by now, it was still sounding. I dropped the hood closed, and the horn stopped. When I got back into the car, I found out that the horn now would not operate. I later checked the fuse for the horn and discovered that it had blown. I tried to replace the fuse, but each time I put a replacement fuse in the slot for the horn, it immediately was blown. I researched the situation on the internet and found the reference to the recall for the horn assembly on the 1996 and 1997 Saturns. To me, the circumstances stated on the recall are identical, except for the fact that I returned to my car before it caught fire. Several people who were working on a house nearby my car said the horn had been sounding for some time, even though I had not used it that morning. Currently, my vehicle will not pass inspection for pennsylvania because of the faulty horn assembly.
