The relay box is under the left wheel well plastic cover,towards the front end,fitted to the chassis.
you get to it by removing the cover as you would do to change the left turn signal bulb,
there are six or eight relays inside one of them is the one you are looking. These relays seldom fail and they are not listed in the owner's manual, the exact relay in the box that is the fuel pump one is in the factory service manual. Below is a photo of the relay box open the red arrow happens to be pointing to the AC clutch relay

Check your fuel pressure. A bad FP regulator or bad fuel pump/fuel pump wiring or fuel pump relay can give you random misfire problems.

What fuse is for the horn on 2008 jeep partiot

under hood, (old post)
in the TIPM box. all fuses in 1 spot now. (and relays)
some have no fuse. and use electronics driver, (fuel pump is one)
i look in the box. the word horn does not exist. like my JK 08 has.
that means its fully electronic, as they keep doing (a good thing)
no fuse , no relay
the TIPM has a horn drivers.
the events (did you scan it first ) back in 2014?
operator hits horn
BCM brain sees you do that.
BCM sends, digital command (networked) to TIPM the brain in the TIPM
turns on its horn driver transistor sending 12vdc to the horn
got 12v to horn honking key on? if yes, the horn is bad, or its base ground is rusty, as all do in the salt belt (wiki that)

my online sources skips horn on just this jeep only,.,,,,
but i do have the MK car, FSM on CD.
and have the full schematics, of this car in SVG format.
here is that page converted. for you and BINGO, look ma, no fuse.
100% electronics, now, up to the horn, no fuses.
just like the fuel pump and others.... (no relay no fuse)
so got 12vdc to horn? honking key on? both horns dead.
some have 2 horns, shown below.
scan tool ,not show DTC errors. ?????

We have a 1993 jeep grand cherokee laredo it has and been running great until this weekend. Here's how it started, we where going down the road and then out of know where after driving around all day...

There is a relay box under the hood. See if the fuel pump relay is marked there and swap it with the A/C or horn relay. If this works to run the pump, buy a new relay. If not, please get back to me for troubleshooting procedures.

2008 jeep patriot wiring has gone haywire. took

Open the power distribution center box near the battery and remove the asd relay that should shut it down. as for the problem itself, it could be a bad relay, a bad ignition switch or some odd ball thing that needs testing to find.
Good luck!
