Where are my horns located?

My horns quit working on my ZJ, I popped the hood real quick to take a peak and didn't see them. Where are they located, so I can work back from there?

They are behind the front crossmember under the passenger side headlight (but not accessible from the headlight). You may be able to get to them by reaching up in the bumper on that side.

Thanks, I can hear the relays clicking under the dash, so the problem must be between the relays to the horns.

They are actually under the battery - accessible from below. Often the wire leads go bad and you need to make new ones like this:

Yup. Lie on your back under the front bumper and look up under the headlight/battery. I think it's a 13mm nut to take them down.

I got this thing to replace my low note, pretty dang loud. And cheap.

The alarm is on a separate relay from the normal horn relay IIRC.

Speaking of relays, if you're hearing a relay under the dash clicking when pushing the horn you may also want to check for a horn relay in the engine compartment PDC. Not sure about the 95 but on my 96 there is a horn relay in the PDC and try flipping it with another one like AC if it works.

Believe the bracket which holds the 2 horns may also be part of the horn ground system. Check where the bracket makes contact with the other metal which believe only has one screw in it.
