Hello, my name is Michael. I will be assisting you today. Give me a moment to review your question and get right with you.

Give me a moment to look up the horn relay location. Do you have a multimeter and the ability to use it?

Hello? Are you there?

The phone call requests come from an automated system. Feel free to ignore the request.

The horn relay is made into the interior fuse box. It cannot be accessed or replaced separately.

If you haven't already done so, check fuse 37 in the interior fuse box.

The fuse only goes to the horn. You may have a shorted relay coil or a shorted horn. If neither are the case it may just be a failed fuse.
