I was digging around under the hood and noticed that someone had cut and spliced a wire on the ignition coil packs. This wire goes over to the fuse box; where the something for the ac as well as the 20 amp fuse for the horn which just so happens to be blown; resides. I being the ever anal retentive person that I'am disconnect it. shout The car refused to start until I reconnected it. any Ideas on what this is and How do I go about fixing it? The fuse I went to replace and as soon as the fuse hits the metal the horn starts going off. Is this part of the alarm system maybe?

This might be one of those "non-start security systems" you find with swap meet stereo systems....

probably a kill for the alarm. Does it have a remote start?

do you have access to factory manual/wiring diagrams? Point is - my guess is that if you did it would nto be too tough to figure out where to look to find the short in the factory wiring.
