Default Acura God - Have you heard of this?

1990 Legend blows 20 A fuse every time horn is blown. Tried replacing horn,
same result. Would be bad enough if just the horn was disabled, but brake
lights and transmission shift lock solenoid are on same fuse!
Thanks in advice for any insight!

I am no way an expert like Acura God, but if you replaced the horn, the
only place left I can see to have a short circuit is in the horn switch
in the steering wheel or further in the wire that goes from switch to
the horn. (Unless horn switch uses an alternative circuit that triggers
a relay to let power to the horn, then you have to look at the relay too..)

Basically since horn switch blows fuse when circuit is closed (have you
tried without any horn to confirm?), you have to start there and make
your way to the horn verifying everything.

Of course, Acura God might have hints on where to look at ;-)

just my 2 cents.

Regarding:

John, making sure I understand, are you suggesting to disconnect the horn,
then engage the horn swith to see if the fuse blows?
Thank you for the reply!

A) Disconnect the horn
B) Measure the resistance of the horn
C)Switch the meter to voltage
D)If the voltage is zero measure the resistance to ground. It should
be infinite
E)Disconnect the meter and press the horn switch.

Do you have the right fuse?
Come back and tell us the results.

It is an LS. I was only aware of the pair of horns mounted on the left
fender well. Where is the third horn?
Thanks for your help!

Why do I help people ?
My principal reason is to learn.
This is why I consider important to know the result of the help we
give.
Involving a group of people on a discussion trying to solve your
problem and at the end just walk way just because one realizes that
he/she was doing something stupid like using the wrong fuse, is the
wrong attitude. Even people with super IQ , do something stupid, some
times
