Hi there. There are multiple reasons for an inoperative horn. Diagnosis will need to be performed to identify the cause of failure. It may just be a blown fuse, a faulty horn relay, a faulty horn contact switch, or a faulty horn itself. I recommend having your vehicle’s inoperative horn diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, so that this can be corrected.
