If the horn makes any sound at all, the relay and fuse isn't the problem. Replace the horn.
If you don't want to do it right away, at least locate it before it goes silent (makes it harder to find).
You can get a good one cheap at any scrap yard. Horns are not vehicle specific so you can use one from any car. Horns come in different tones so it's best to hot wire your choice to a battery and check to see what it sounds like before installing it. When putting it in, try not to pont it towards anywhere that rain will be forced into it while in motion and don't point it up or water will collect inside of it and cause it to fail again.

    by the way if you did manage to blow the fuse, it's the seventh one up from the bottom of the right row. (socket 21...15amp)

Why won't my horn work on my 1991 jeep cherokee laredo?


the horn is simple , a horn a relay and switch, and fuse 15?.

but is complex by other factors.

1: the clock spring . no air bags in 1991, so very easy.



there are 2 ways to diagnose any horn..

1: hot wire it, does it now honk? if yes, hot wire the relay does it honk now?

2: or use any voltmeter ever made and find out why.



#2 is the save way.



id hot wire the horn and make sure that 1991 ground bolt

mount is really still at ground potential. id bet that bolt has

long sense rusted, and is useless, like most are by now.



the fuse and relay are both in the PDC

the PDC means, engine bay fuse box in gringo. (non jargon)

http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

here is 93 for free.

see horn page one and the 2 tests.

or see the schematic.

at there, see the fuse box see fuse 15 (PDC 15?)

same chapter, see PDF page 90 (sheet33)



as you can see if the fuse is good.

12vdc arrives at the Horn relay on 2 pins.

if the horn switch works the relay ENERGIZES (closes)

and 12vdc arrives at the horn, and it honks

if while honking, the horn casing is 12vdc,

then means the horn is no longer grounded, a common happenstance.



if the relay dont energize check the horn ring contacts or connectors to it for continuity.

the relay can be tested, in the car.

like this.

honking

pin 2 and 5 are 12v

pin 1 = 0 volts

pin 4 is 12v, if 0v the relay is bad.



easy huh., ?

Horn does not work


If the relay clicks then it sounds like its working you will need to locate the horns and make sure they are connected if they are then horns are bad.

Horn not working. When depressing the horn button on the steering wheel, only "clicking" sound is heard near the front passenger side. Checked the fuse and turned out to be unbroken. What's next?...


The clicking you hear is the horn relay working.
I would locate the horn and insure the wiring is intact and the horn has a good solid ground.
Then while someone is pressing the horn button measure the voltage at the wire that attaches to the horn to ground. If you get 12v or more the horn is bad. If you don't get any voltage replace the relay

Where is the horn relay located on a 1998 jeep sport?


The horn relay is located in the power distribution box under the hood. Also, fuse cavity 21 and 4 are fused to the horn circuit as well as the clockspring mechanism in the steering wheel. Best case scenario would be a defective horn or blown fuse in the horn circuit, worst case scenario would be the clockspring in the steering well is defective and will need to be replaced. Before replacing any parts, check the connections first.

I need help with a 2000 Jeep Cherokee locating and fixing a horn that stopped working...fuse is okay


get a long wire and test the horn directly from the battery positive, if it works many times the vibration clears the problem, If you press the horn and do not hear a clicking sound from under dash, find fuse box in engine compartment, study all relays, find two that are exactly alike and swith with horn relay, test, if it works, there it is!

Horn malfunction


Under the hood of your jeep on the passenger side there is the Power Distrubution Center (PDC). Remove the lid and thered will be fuses and relays in there. I could not locate the exact location of the horn reley, but if you start removing them one by one you can find the horn relay. You will know the right one when the horn stops.
