Horn problems 1999 Powerstroke

The horn on my 1999 PSD is not working. I have check the fuse.....good. I replaced the horn, but it still does not work. Is there a horn relay? If so, which one is it? I don't have a manual, but pulled one up on line. It does not show there to be a horn relay. Can anyone help me out? Any other ideas? Thanks!

I think there is. If you can hear a click pushing the horn button, it's working.
The clock spring or something in the column can go bad.

Thanks for the reply. I can not hear the relay clicking when I press the horn.
What is the clock spring and how do you check it?

I know in the old chevys there was a part under the horn in the column where the contacts would break. either way ther is something there to transfer a spining wheel to a contact?
But hey what do i know?

You should not mess with the clock spring unless you know what you are doing!!!!

If you mess around with the clockspring you can cause the airbag to go off and cause injuries to yourself.

A bad clock spring would cause issues with the airbag and would most likely set a code or set off the airbag.

Before messing with that I would suggest checking the wire at the column. Its a blue wire. Positive at rest and negative when u hit the horn. That will help u figure out where to look.
