Horn not working

Well the horn in my 2001 isn't working. The horn itself works and the button in the steering wheel works because when I press it I hear the relay click also when I press the panic button on my remote the lights flash and no horn. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Try swapping with a known good relay. Just because you hear the "click" doesn't mean the contacts aren't burnt out.

Just tried with two different brand new relays still no horn. I checked all of the fuses too and everything looks good. Is there anything other than the fuse box in the dash and the one under the hood that would effect the horn?

How do you know the horn works? It can be a sob to get too. If memory serves me correct it's a green wire with a yellow tracer that goes through the fire wall. Pull the fuse panel down and make sure your getting the signal from the column.

well I put a new 7.3 in the truck and when I did that I went ahead and took the horn out of my old truck tested it then installed it. The horn worked when I connected it to a car battery. Right now i'm not getting any power to the horn when its activated. Do you think if could be the fuse panel?

Check with a test light and see if your getting power to the horn. It only goes from the fuese panel, throught the bulkhead connecter to the horn. Start from the horn connector and work your way back.
