horn problem

my 01 superduty has a horn issue, i just got it so im not sure what might be wrong just looking for some pointers on what to check to solve this easier, sounds like a short to ground to me.

the horn with no fuse in it makes the relay click and the relay gets warm, put a fuse in it and it pops with in a minute and i dont have to even try to press the horn

never realized how much a horn is needed until you dont have one lol

there could be a possibility that it can short it self and cause the fuse to blow. or a short in the column/button.
