Horn problem

Ok so I've used the search function to no avail on this one. When I got my 96 zj, the PO had taken the horns off to stop the alarm from going off and waking his neighbors. So now I went and got a single aftermarket blaster horn. Hooked it up to one set of wires... I hear the relay clicking but no sound. So I hook both sets of wires to it, still nothing. Any help would be great.

Make sure you have the green/yellow wire connected to the power wire and the black wire connected to the ground from the stock connector. I messed that up when I installed my horns.

I've tried everything. I'm assuming my zj came with dual horns as I have 2 sets of yellow/green and blue wires. I tried wiring them together, color to color then to the horn. Still nothing. The relay is clicking. Mayb I did get a bad horn

I would still check for voltage! Is no volt meter if you got a riding mower pull its headlights well really just one with the socket and set it where you can see it then use a set of jumper wires to hook it up and push you horn and see if it comes on.

UPDATE: the "new" blaster horn was bad. Took it back and swapped it out for another and it works just fine. I guess it is possible to get a bad "new" horn.
