The horn fuse is in the fuse box under the hood. The relay is there also. If you hear the relay click when you try to sound the horn, then the fuse is good and the horn is the likely issue. If the air bag light is on, then the issue could be with the spiral cable for the airbag system in the steering colum.

The fuse should be labeled on the box cover as horn.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
