Help, KK went over huge bump, HORN wont work

Strange issue, 2011 Liberty Jet KK. Went over a huge bump in the road and the truck took a good jolt. Everything is completely fine, except my horn will not work. The fuses are in tact. I hear the click sound when pressing the horn.

I am having trouble locating a horn relay. and subsequently the horns themselves. I doubt I disconnected both horns with the jolt, but I would like to check. Can someone advise where to find the horn relay, its not listed in the fuse box and where the horns are exactly? And any intermittent connections that could have come loose.

Thanks all, i'm completely stumped and I don't want to pay the dealer to overcharge me for a $20 relay.

Horns are located just behind the driver's headlamp and in front of the battery. They're two miniature turbo spool looking things. Mine actually just started working again after a few months BECAUSE of a huge jolt...

As NA said they're right behind the headlight. one mounted on the front and one just to the right of it if you're looking into the engine. They're black so they can be a bit tricky to actually see. But when you do, you'll know. I replaced mine recently as I filled them up with muddy water. I didn't need to find and deal with the relay at all.

First thing I'd check to see if your horns are working themselves. The factory connectors are actually just spade connections, so almost any aftermarket horn is suitable. I got a set of Hella twin horns and they literally just swapped right out.
