My 2004 Honda Element's horn is suddenly very weak. Will replacing the horn relay fix that?

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There, I believe you are correct in that the horn relay may be faulty or potentially you may have a bad horn switch itself, however this would be a rare situation. The horn relay is generally what will cause the horn sound to be weak as you describe. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your vehicle horn.
