Check battery voltage with a volt meter. What appears to be good, many times is not. Alternator does not start your car...battery and starter does that by turning the engine so the ignition and fuel system can do what they need to do. After it starts, the alternator puts back power lost while starting, and keeps the battery charged. (only to a point)...a half charged battery will only get a partial charge and needs to be fully charged with a real battery charger (not another car)

How do you know its not the battery? Take the vehicle to a battery store and have them check it, otherwise it may be the starter

2003 Dodge Caravan Battery?

Sounds like time for new battery, give it a full charge & have it tested, but have alternator checked as well, even though it appears alternator is o.k. because it runs, but just in case it's an intermittent problem with alternator

Sounds like a dirty connection in the fuse box or on a plug in relay pin.

Disconnect the battery

Yes, it sounds like the connector on the horn could have been accidentally unplugged while the work was being done.

The horn is under the hood very near the front grill on left or right side.
