Replace fuse in fusebox labelled horn. you might have to go to owners manual because I dont think ford labels their fuse by name but instead by number. sometime there are fuses under the hood too. just have to check book.

Horn not working. Checked fuse its okay. Do I replace relay?

Before you change relay do this, take out the horn wires and attach a 12v bulb to it and press horn button.

Condition 1: Blub glows:
1. Re-attach the horn wires and look for a adjustment screw behind the horn. Ask someone to press horn button and using a screw driver, rotate this screw clock or anti-clock wise until you hear some sound. Fine adjust the screw for best sound. Most probably you will need to put cork in your ear to save your ear drums :P

2. Put some glue on this screw.

3. If still no sound, then horn is dead and you have to buy new horn.

Condition 2: Bulb does not glow:

1. Check using a bulb / multimeter at the contacts of relay if you are actually getting current in relay. Hear the click sound of relay on pressing horn button. If it has no life, then change it.

I have a 2001 stratus and the horn doesn't work. When I press the horn I hear a clicking sound. The fuse is OK, what's the problem

The clicking sound you are hearing is the horn relay engaging trying to supply power to your horn. Most likely horn itself needs to be replaced. Locate horn underneath in front near grill. With test light check for ground & with someone pushing on horn switch, check for positive. If you have good ground & power when pushing on horn switch need to replace horn.

The horn just makes a clicking sound which sounds like its coming from the glovebox?

The clicking sound is probably the horn relay. Check for power at the horn wire when button depressed and that the horn is grounded. If everything checks out ok replace horn with known good part.

Horn will not work, I buy a new horn, check it, works I replace the horn relay works, check horn fuse working and yet horn won't make any sound.?

If you ground out one or the other of the 2 terminals with a test light, the horn should sound.
If not, then the horn is bad, or there is no current going to it.

It sounds like the horn relay is operating but the horn is not getting any power to it. Check where the wiring is attached to the horn contacts for tightness and security. You could test the horn itself by running a jumper wire direct from the battery to the horn contact. If no noise replace horn unit. If jumper wire works, then the relay should be replaced. .

I have a 2003 jeep liberty and the horn works, but sounds awful. Like it only has half its output. Remote as well as manual horn sounds like that

you either have 2 horns (a hi note and a low note) and one is defective or you have one horn that is going bad. check possible bad ground also

Horn does not work properly sounds like a toyota horn already checked both relays.

Your vechicle only has one horn on it if it is working but has poor sound You need to ck for a poor ground or poor voltage at the horn The horn is located behind the left headlamp disconnect the horn and ck the power wire for 12 volts (green wire) then ck the black wire for a good ground 0 ohms fron the connector to battery Neg post. If these readings are correct then the horn needs to be replaced

Horn stopped blowing

Sounds like you may have corroded terminals on the horn itself.

Find the horn in the engine compartment - remove the wire connected to it - clean the spade terminal with some sand paper and push the terminal back on. If that doesn't work you may need to remove the horn from the car and clean up the earth connection, i.e. where the horn is attached to the body work of the car to get a good electrical contact.
