Have you tried the fuse behind the glove box? Replace that one first, if it doesnt work under the hood there is another fuse block open it up and replace that one...most likely its the one behind the g-box.

Come go for a ride and I'll be glad to demonstrate the difference between what you perceive incorrectly as "control" and what control actually is.

Pick a different reason because that one is both lame and stupid to perpetuate.

You could always get one of those, "horn broke, watch for finger" bumper stickers. Come on, I couldn't resist. . .

Fuses are the best place to start......

Its possible the PO dis mantled it....TJ's have a problem with the button over the airbag. the factory uses a cheap opencell foam to keep the contacts seperated. when the TJ is left with te top off alot the sun's heat deteriates the foam. causing the horn to blow all by itself at 03:00 hrs!!!

I pulled the horns relay out to kill mine. Its in a blk box on the pass side inner fender well.

Just ask me how I know.....

I know have a button on my center console as I waasnt going to pay $60 for a new cover!!!

Check the fuses, like everyone else said. Also, if you push the horn button, you should be able to hear the relay "click" if it's getting power. If you have a meter or test light, the easiest thing to do would be to check for power at the horn. Mine went dead a while back and I've never gotten around to replaceing them. I like the idea of an air horn.

yeah my jeep got wet the other day and the check engine light came on. It turned out to be the clock spring. Now cruise control works fine but the horn wont work. I bet its the clockspring, like 19992001 said.

Glove Box Relay Center

I have been searching for a diagram indicating what is what in the relay center located inside the glove box on my recently aquired 93 GC Ltd. When the horn button is pressed the fuse blows (#13 in the passenger side of dash I believe) I replaced what I'm assuming was the horn relay in the "power distribution center" as it is called in the manual (also referenced in the Haynes book I bought) but the there was no change - hit the horn button, relay clicks, and "pop" goes the fuse. Anyone have a diagram to this relay block? Anyone have any other ideas to look for?
