If its like my 99 Chevy Lumina, its behind the front bumper, passenger side. You'll have to take the whole front bumper off. Stupid I know. But thats how Chevy made them.

My horn doesn't work but it sounds of for the alarm

Note the diagram.
If you use a jumper wire on load side of horn relay, with relay unplugged, the horn should sound. If it does, problem is on the control side of relay.
The load side of relay is that line with the arrow head. When the relay is energized, that line with arrow head, moves to other terminal and sends voltage to horn assembly.

Can not get horn to blow on a 2001 malibu

2001 malibu horn fuse and relay are located in the under the hood fuse box.
location 21 should be the relay
location 43 should be the fuse.
if the relay is put in wrong the horn will not work. if you replaced the relay and the horn stopped working try pulling the relay out and turning it around. and try the horn again.

How do you fix horn button in 2004 Chevy malibu

You would need to check the circuits at the relay.
The horn pad grounds the relay to make the horn blow.
You should have power at the relay, and a ground from the horn pad when it is pressed. The third wire goes to the horns.

2004 Malibu Maxx keeps blowing horn fuse. Works when I replace fuse for about 6 times. Horn itself feels touchy as in only works when pressed certain way. Shift paddle on side of shifter also does not...

Try disconnecting the horn itself from the circiut,hold the horn button on for a while,if the fuse no longer blows,it's a safe bet the horn itself was the culprit,if it still burns the fuse,the wiring or clockspring are shorting out

My horn will not stop blowing what do i need to do

find your owners manual in the glove box. read it. there will be two fuse & relay panels along with legends as to what is what in each panel. and/or the legend will be inside the panel cover. find the relay for horn, and go pull it. the horn will no longer work. as a lark go get a new relay at any parts store and stick it in. if the horn works properly you have serendipitously fixed it, if it just starts blowing constantly again leave the relay out and go buy a horn switch. the switch is inside the steering wheel cosmetic cover and you need some tools and aptitude to replace it so a paid mechanic will be in order.

Horn doesn't work at all, what could be the problem?

Either the switch in the steering wheel doesn't close, or the horn relay is burnt out, or the horn itself is broken, or the wiring in between is faulty.

One can use a test light at the actual horn device, grounding out one or the other lead, to see if it sounds. If it does, then the problem lies at the relay, the switch, or the wiring in between. The horn should always be energized, and the horn switch controls the grounding of it.

Good luck on this repair.

Horn does not work

Check fuse, if ok have somone use a volt meter while you depress the horn, and see if you are getting 12 volts, if you are not and the fuse is good, then it is the relay, if you have 12 volts to the horn wire, then the horn is bad.

No the Chevy Malibu is not made by Kia!
I think you mean horn relay
I would try a new relay it is possible that the relay is defective and that's why it was removed
here is how the horn circuit works
The body control module (BCM) controls the horn relay by grounding the control circuit of the horn relay coil. When the horn relay coil is grounded, the horn relay contacts close, applying voltage to the horn via the horn supply voltage circuit.
if the horn relay does not fix your concern you may need to take it to a shop and check for any BCM fault codes
and you are correct having no horn is a SAFETY ISSUE
hope this helps good luck and I hope the relay fixs it because a BCM is costly
