    These sites are aren't very helpful....I need to know how to access the fuse!! Most of them have no pics of my particular model 2007 Jeep Compass---they show every other model of course. I found the fuse box which appears to have 2 tiers....if I pull on the top tier will I hurt anything ? The horn relay fuse I bought doesn't match anything in the top tier.

Dealer says it is located under the inner fender plastic of the drivers side. None of the answers here are correct. I have not located it yet as well. However certainly not the steering wheel to say it is suspect, cause you can make it honk using panic button, or when you lock the car with the keyfob, it beeps for 1 second.
There are no relays in the driver side TIPM and there is no fuse indicated in the Owners Manual for the Horn itself. A call to O'Reilly Auto Parts and they told me the horn relay costs about 17 bucks but they could not pull up a picture. Google gives you random images of useless information. I know a Dodge Caliper 2007 is the same basic design but not the same.

    Ok I put it off but now am getting closer to the Answer. The PDC or TIPM combination Fuse and Total Power Integrateed Module. Which is a combination of all Fuses, and a module that monitors and controls many things. Mainly all the lighting, and relays. However NONE of the mechanical relays are located here. 4 out of possibly 6 on other models) are located on a rectabgle shaped box, located behind the Horn itself. Now the relay closest to the engine as looking down on it, is the Fuel Pump relay. That you can tell as I removed all the relays and plugged it back in while the key was on, and it primed the fuel system. You can hear it go click click click. 2 others are something else, possibly A/C compressor clutch, and Cooling Fan. But the 4th I am assuming is the Horn. I took out all of them and tested with ohm meter, then hooked them up to 12 v and confirmed all good, All are basic BOSCH relays. Swappinjg them all around made no difference and I marken them so I put them all back to the original locations. All of them have 12V on the common lead closest to the firewall. All have resistance on the lead to ground closest to the forward side, which would be the load. I didnt have a paper clip or I would have jumped each to see if the horn honked fan ran etc etc. Got too dark and hard place to get at so for now I call it quits.

    After the horn quit recently I now had the Passenger headlight quit and then last week had problem with the pasenger turn signal.
    Located the problem and fixed. Somewhere the ground wire of BOTH the passenger headlight and turn signel is open. So I grounded it right at the fender using a jumper wire, and spliced it to both the headlight center wire, and the turn signal light black wire. So that fixed those, and no more BEEP or rapid turn signals. SO all lights now work, but somewhere there must be a broken or corroded wire, which I am wondering if they join those at the starter. Now that COULD be related to either the TIPM ground if that is where it joins up. I think it is sime to look under and observe wiring of the starter. The wire harness runs back along the passenger fender but no idea where it goes from there.Eventually back to the TIPM. Big question is where things ground in this vehicle, and where the broken or corroded wire is located. Sadly I do livw in a state where everything is subjected to salt underneath and that is where most problems start.

If your horn isn't working and it isn't the horn itself the next thing to check is the horn wire in the steering wheel under the air bag. The little clip breaks off in time and the horn wire pops out. To repair you can remove the wheel and replace the part but I usually grind in a new notch in the old plastic and re attach the wire and it will work again.
Test the horn itself first. Just remove the connection to the horn and attach 2 wires to a live battery and tough the 2 sides of the contacts on the horn. If it blows the horn is good. If not replace the horn before you go any further.

SOURCE: Horn malfunction

Under the hood of your jeep on the passenger side there is the Power Distrubution Center (PDC). Remove the lid and thered will be fuses and relays in there. I could not locate the exact location of the horn reley, but if you start removing them one by one you can find the horn relay. You will know the right one when the horn stops.

SOURCE: Where is the horn relay located on a 95 jeep grand cherokee?

On my 95 Jeep Cherokee Laredo, the horn relay is in a compartment under the glove box. Open the glove box and remove the three screws in the front on the bottom. Take the plastic cover out and you'll see a bank of relays. The horn relay is the one on the far left, closest to you.

SOURCE: Where is the horn relay location for a 1995 Jeep

Hi, the horn relay is located under the glove box base that is secured by several screws. Pull the box covering out and you will see the relay box with 6 relays together ( 3 top row and 3 bottom row). The horn relay is located on the bottom row, all the way left. Or the first one on the left bottom row.

How do you replace the horn on the 2007 jeep compass?

fuse 23 blown? is car battery discharged? (other symptoms not stated ?)
my guess is you can't see the horn, and the bolt?.
but can't reach it? that it?

That is correct. the relay is buried deep inside the TIPM where I only go...and others ,not shy...
im not so daft to replace a whole, TIPM for a bad relay or driver. for any horn... but you can....
it is your cash.
MP(49) schematic. is clear. as day.
well was before fixya blurred it.

1: is horn ground rusty? (look, examine...)
2: does 12vdc reach horn , honking (a voltmeter tells you this)
if #2 fails the PCM must be scanned to see why.
a must. scan it NOW.
B2336? B2338 (horn not grounded)
b2371 is shorted horn
like that?

if there is DTC that says the horn driver is bad, it is... end story. well, not doing the bad story.
and swapping in new TIPM.'
or reprogramming scrambled is dealer only fix.24982994-etvqydtva0wxu40xhy30x2n2-1-2.jpg

Horn just starts blowing for no reason

read the operators guide (lost? it?) on security.
or for IMMO, (immoblizer)
the guide shows you how to find which switch tripped the alarm.
if no reason, then the horn relay is bad.
on this car and all 2007 and newer CAN-BUS Jeeps,
you need a full scan, of the whole car.
the newer cars have a huge list of checks it does.
and will report , in DTC errors.

read the FSM if you want to do DIY.
or login to and read.
see the tests there.
