Alright here's my question. I have a 2001 ford taurus Se and it's my wife's car and her horn does not work it's not the fuse not the relay the owner of the car that had it before us replaced some items on it I've already replaced the alternator and the serpintine belt cuz the one they had on it was 2 inches too big we have no idea how they got it on because when we put it back on it was loose the horn is located under the driver side fender and the moron mechanic cut the wires and let them just hang there I was wondering if y'all have a diagram of some sort for it

I would look in and around the area where the wires were cut for the other end of them. Before any diagnostic can be performed you need to make sure the circuit it intact

on the belt being too long. Triple check it is routed properly

Will do. Was just wondering if y'all had any diagrams for it. Was wondering if I'd have to take off the whole front end just to get to it because when I looked at it yesterday I saw it from underneath by the front driver side fender could remove the plastic by the wheel well and the plastic bottom to get to it or just take the cowl off and the bumper

Lol it happens. Y'all get millions of questions to answer. My question was if I had to take the whole front end off to get to it or do what I think I'd be able to do and just take off the bottom plastic piece and the plastic wheel well

Just disconnect electrical and remove a single bolt. Maybe hook a test light up to the cut wire on harness side of horn circuit and press horn button and see if it lights up or go aftermarket no sense in removing if we havent tested it first. Horns rarely go bad(rarely but they do) id make sure the wiring is ok
