Default horn stopped working

my horn recently stopped working.
it was good, but then it made a wierd noise and now it wont work.
do you think ist the horn itself, or the wires/fuses that run the horn?

Check for voltage at the horn plug. If you have voltage, then the horn is dead. No voltage then check the relay and fuse.

Just get you a goose... if you need a horn just give the goose a good hug... hehehe j/k

if you cant check voltage at the horn, have a buddy sit in the car and push the horn button a couple times, listen to the relays under the hood see if you can hear a "click" when he pushes the horn... if no click then its most likely the relay or the switch/contact for the horn button on the steering wheel

let us know what you find out

Wow, my horn stopped working too. I went to honk my horn yesterday at some idiot who cut me off (talking on a cell phone) and my horn didn't work. I will check the relay and fuse like you said. Thanks!

If you're getting voltage at the horn, and it'* still not working, try shooting just a little WD40 in the horn itself. I've seen horns on other vehicles quit working because of dirt/dust in them.....

just a thought...
