Replace horn 2007 jeep grand cherokee
1Buy a horn kit. Direct replacement kits for the Jeep Grand Cherokee models will have only one horn, but many aftermarket kits consist of two horns.
2Locate the original manufacturer's horn. The horn for the Jeep Grand Cherokee is mounted under the right turn signal behind the front bumper. The easiest way to access it is from underneath the front of your Jeep.
3Disconnect the power connector from the horn, unscrew the mounting bolts with a socket wrench and remove the original horn. If you are installing a factory replacement, you can simply attach the old wiring harness to the new horn and mount it in the original location. However, if you are installing two horns, you will need to find a sturdy location with minimal vibrations.
4Splice the original pair of wires to the two horns according to the instructions for the new horns. The kit should include the connectors that you will need. Generally, you will splice a Y connection to each original wire to produce two pairs of wires that are connected to a new wiring harness. You will then connect each harness to one of the new horns.
5Test the new horns to ensure they work.
*I've done this myself on a few of my Jeeps, these directions are the simplest though, but do not take into account any "issues" . For the simplest fix, i would by a replacement horn (same year and model) from a breakers and install, if you're brave you can buy a cheap one form amazon or ebay.
