      I'd like to know this myself ... just got my Explorer (complete with a horn that does not work ...) and more recently got a Haynes manual. Searched the whole book ... apparently in the Haynes world, Explorers don't have horns. ... cruise controls either.

      I asked for a Chilton's manual for my b-day ... rec'd the Haynes instead.

      I had issues with the Haynes manual for my previous daily driver.

      Did I mention that I really don't like Haynes? (LOL ... kinda ...)

      This should help. Looks like a dark blue wire.

      Hell I couldn't even find mine before I hit a tree with the damn thing. Wish this thread had existed a month or two ago, then maybe I coulda scared that SOB outta the way.

      The Haynes manual was indeed a complete let down on this for me to.

      Blee,

      Thanks for posting that diagram.


      I did some more searching here, because my horn and cruise control are out of commission right now, and learned a new word ... "clockspring". (groan ...)


      Byte,
      The weather on my side of FL looks pretty nice.

      I think I'll go install my stereo ...
