Horn fuse on 2010 Jeep Patriot

did you even look first in the fuse box, or just want us to?
ok did, there is none.

if it has one it marked horn.
not all jeeps have a fuse here, (traditional)
some have an magic electronic current limit on it.
that just works and takes no user actions. ever....
we've used these in industry since the 70s, and is just catching on in the car world. (same on military guns and fuses hate each other, boom , pop no joy, )
did YOU scan the pcm first. (NO)
did you clean off the rust on the bottom of the horn bracket next.
usa horn has 1 horn
outside is 2. (top cause of horn fail , rust near fender at horn)

so my wild guess is you are in USA right. yeah, matters .
the owners manual shows no horn fuse, just read it for you.
The fsm shows, NO FUSE. strike2.
so the FSM schematic shows, the horn driver on page 8w-13-10
found it. its not a FUSE !!!
TIPM page 16 shows the TIPM has no FUSE.
if the TIPM main power fuse blows, massive failures all over car
that mean like i said, the TIPM uses and electronic fuse
it called current regulator, if you short it out, it roll back current
all free, no parts to change and cures its self automatically, with the fault is cleared. Its not a fuse, its current limiter.

so lets play your game the correct way
you say "why is my horn dead. all else works"
I say,
1:scan it first. the scan tool tells you what failed.
2: then tests the horn by hand, (bench testing, )
3:or clean its ground then hot wire it. beeps now.
4: if this all fails the dealer can honk the horn via there fancy factory scan tools, (we cant) and if fails honk the check voltage to the horn if 12vdc the horn is bad ,if 0v the TIPM is bad.
end story.

this a new digital horn, (not actual horn) but the control
are digital, that means the switch for the horn is digital
and the alarms sends , a communication on the network
to sound the horn.
if the TIPM hears the button or the alarm active (network sent)
the TIMP then activates the horn driver electrons
if it cant it records warnings on the scan tool called DTCs.

so short answer
1: get car serviced
2: get car scanned,
there is NO FUSE.
Yes, everyone says check fuses first. but not this car and not that circuit. its and exception to the rule.

Ran out of gas. filled, now it won't start.

Sounds like you activated the anti-theft alarm somehow.
I would check the owners manual on how to disarm it.

damaged wire maybe.
Locate the horn that blows and follow the wire back until you see the damaged area.

Should only be one power wire running to the horn.
Very strange that the fuse/relay didn't stop it from happening.

let me know what you find.

Bought a 1992 acura vigor and found horn fuse missing. when I replaced the fuse alarm goes off and constantly sounds. how do I stop it? I've read that there's a relay somewhere under the hood

horn relay located on the right side kick panel,you will see a row of relays,if horn relay is okay, more likely your horn control pad has a short inside causing horn button contacts to stick causing horn to keep blowing.

On my 1995 crown vic. one day horn blew on its own for about an hour. i looked and fuse was blown now when i put new fuse in and hit horn, horn sounds for second and fuse blows. everytime i put fuse i

Sounds l;ike the horn itself has a short. Try another from a salvage yard. If fuse blows again, it's likely a wire to horn that lost insulation and touching metal.
Good luck.

The horn won't honk. What do I need to do to fix the problem. What does it mean to have service ride control show up/

If you hear clicking near the engine compartment fuse and relay box when the horn pad is pressed, then you need to check the horn fuse,(probably have to look the location up in the owners manual) if the fuse is blown, you may have shorted out horns or a short in the wiring to the horns. Usually there are two horns for the vehicle and if you install a good fuse in the horn circuit then unplug one horn and test the operation the horn may work or the fuse will blow again. If the horn works, disconnect it and reconnect the other and retest,if the horn does not work and the fuse blows, you have found your bad horn. Good luck.

There are two main causes for Service Ride Control message - active strut failure and accelerometer failure.

94 VW Golf horn stays on with fuse pulled, I just got this car and tried to install a new battery when I connect it the horn sounds.I checked the fuse panel and pulled # 13 that was for the horn and it...

What your hearing is the factory alarm not the horn. Connect the battery when the alarm sounds go to the drivers door lock with the key and lock and unlock the door until the alarm goes off . Then reinstall the fuse for the horn.,

My alarm does not sound but it flashes is that a fuse? my horn was working it would honk a few times then stop. a day would go by and then it would work again. is that a fuse?

Sound to me like the horn is old and dying if it works one day, dies the next and works again later. Have it checked and possibly replaced.
