Fuze could be burnt. pull it and see if the contact in the middle of the fuze is still touching or not popped or black.

SOURCE: 2007 dodge caliber... horn will not sound! Can it

If I remember right it's a 5 amp fuse on the interior fuse panel. The location of the panel and the fuse identification are in the owner's manual that came with the vehicle. It is normally located to the left of the driver either under the dash or under a cover to the left of the steering wheel. It is possibly under a removable cover that you can access on the side of the dash when you open the drivers door. There is normally a fuse identification listing on the cover as well.

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.

Where fuse location for horn ?

In fuse block. Ok, that's a smart a** answer. Not sure where the fuse block is located on your vehicle, but usually under dash left of steering column, or under hood on inner fender, or in glove box, or? Using a flashlite you can often see which fuse is blown by eyeball. If not, remove one at a time and examine. Other reason for horn to fail is horn relay bad. If only one horn fails, bad horn. Both fail = relay or fuse or broken wire.

Horn is ok but not working

Just curious - how can the horn be OK if it doesn't work?
Of course, horns do fail, their wiring and/or fuse can fail and the switching mechanism can fail.
Put your DC meter on the horn terminals and attempt to blow the horn - if you measure 12vdc, replace the horn. If no 12vdc, you have either a failed horn switch or a wiring fault.

Horn does not work when deperess

The caravan horn is a weak one. Locate the horn and disconnect the plug. One wire is hor all the time and it runs off the horn fuse in the undrhood fuse relay panel next to the battery. With a test light verify that the one wire is hot all the time. ( A test light is a tool looks like an ice pick with a clear handle that has a light bulb inside the handle has a wire coming out of it with a clip on the end, connect the clip to a metal ground and anything that electricly powered will light the light bulb in the handle) If it's hot then put the pointer in the other wire ( In the horns plug) and connect the clip of the light to the battery positive, Push the horn button and the light should light, if it does the horn is bad. If not the horn button or the clockspring is bad. The clockspring is the connection beteen the steering whell and the steering collum, It's a coil of ribbon cable that has the wires for the airbag the horn and any buttons for cruise control or radio volume or channels that may be the steering wheel. this cable can break or be overloaded and burn out. Most of the time when they fail the airbag light will be on the the cruise control won't work. The horn button is made into the airbag and seldom fails the fuse is second the horns fail often.

My 2005 Pontiac Sunfire horn stopped working. I've tried replacing the fuse, but that's not the problem. Any ideas?

Hello: It could be a failed horn. the best way to check is to get a test light and connect one end to the green wire at the horn connection and the other end to a good ground, have helper press horn. if test light lights up the horn has failed. also you might check the fuse box under the hood and see if there is a horn relay. if there is a horn relay then look to see if there another relay like it. if there is one swap the relays and see if the horn works.

My horn sis not working. There was trouble with my car alarm months ago and the repairman removed the after market alarm. However, my car failed inspection today because the horn will click but does not...

Yes, if a car doesn't have a working horn, it would, in most if not all states fail a safety inspection.
If you hear a click, then it could be the relay clicking or the horn trying to operate. Likely, it's just a bad horn or a bad ground connection at the horn relay.

I would take the vehicle back to the repairman and ask about the horn and repairing it, or have the inspector who failed it repair it for you.

Horns go bad on cars due to corrosion or non use over time. I've had a few go bad on motorcycles which were even stored in a garage. Opened one up one time and found rust on the contacts that made it not work or oscillate to make a sound that is audible.

I think that you could locate the horn, and see if all of the wires are physically there, and try a test light to ground it out, as horns should always have power (as long as the battery is charged up) whether or not the ignition is on.

If you ground out one or the other terminals with a test light, at the horn, then it should beep.
If not, then the horn itself is bad.

Replace with new.
It is really that simple.

I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville that wasn't used for a while and the horn went bad on it and it was replaced as one of the items required for Pennsylvania State Inspection.

What would make your horn on a vehicle stop

Hi: Most vehicles have 2 horns, a high tone and a low tone.
Usually you lose one or the other , but not both. Has your vehicle been in deep water? That can cause horns to fail, and Horns do fail, as they have a electrical vibration coil that can sieze up or quit. If you have checked your fuse, and verified that you have 12 volts at the horn electrical plug, the horn has failed. The horn switch in the steering wheel can be bad too.

This is suspect too, if you don't have the voltage at the horns.

Hope you find the problem!

Horn doesnt work

The fuse can't click it is probably the relay that is clicking. Check fuse #2.37 it is the 12th from the bottom row of the central junction box from right to left if it is ok ground the dark blue wire coming down from the steering column to check the horn pad and ground. If the horn works you have a problem in the clock spring or ground. If it doesn't check for 2 pins at the horn relay in the central juntion box for 12 volts if you have 12 volts at 2 pins with the key on then jump pin 30 of the relay with pin 87 of the relay and see if the horn goes off if it does have someone press the horn pad and see if you get a ground to pin 85 or 86 of the relay if you don't you have a ground problem to the relay if you do the the relay has failed. If you jump the relay at the central jumction box between pins 30 and 87 and the horn doesn't go off then the horn has failed or isn't properly grounded. Then check the horn for power with the horn pad depressed if there is power at the horn connector. Hold a test light on the ground wire for the horn from the ground of the battery and see if your test light shows power if it does then you have a bad ground to your horn if it doesn't then your horn has failes.
