For the most part the car’s been fantastic. However the other day a less-than-proficient driver required a minor reminder she wasn’t the only one on the freeway as she, unaware, nearly merged her Prius into my Crown Vic. I went to give my horn a little toot… and nothing happened. Likely because the horn was probably previously wired to the siren when the car was on the Police payroll - and I don’t have the siren.
So how do I get the horn’s functionality back? I’m not sure what I’m looking for, but while poking under the driver/passenger dashboard I didn’t see any snipped wires or any disconnected wires. All relevant fuses are in place, although I’m not exactly sure how to check if they’re “good”. And that’s the extent of what I can think to check. I’ve poked around crownvic.net and could probably get help there, but my multiple attempts to register have been waiting ‘approval’ for weeks and their ‘contact us’ is non-responsive - and I’m not the only one. I even attempted to contact the department where my car was in service, but haven’t gotten anything back yet.
That’s why I’ve come back here. To see if anyone may have suggestions for what I can check, diagrams to reference, cables to look for, horn-things to inspect, whatever (???). I’m half-expecting I’ll find some “oh hey, this should be plugged in” somewhere, but I’m not sure where to look.
