Listen for the relay to click when you push the horn button. Leave the drivers door open and listen towards the fender area.

Relay #23 ( in my 2001 anyway ) inside fuse panel. You can switch with another one to check. Then you'll know.

That stinks. Those are the simple steps to start with. And the only problems I've had with my horn. Next step may be the clockspring behind the steering wheel. I haven't dealt with that, although I've removed my wheel many times. That's about all I can suggest. I don't want to offer info on something I haven't replaced or fixed..

Check your power wire with a tester to see if it lights up when the horn is pushed. Then go from there. Check the horn on a battery to make sure it works. Check the ground, mounting bracket to see if it's rusted.
