Horn just stopped working...

Not sure what it could be. Just the other day, I hit my alarm and the horn usually beeps, but it didn't. So, I went back to the truck and the horn has just stopped working. I can hear the relay click when I push the horn on the steering wheel. I just thought it was weird. If I am not mistaken, there are two horns, so it would be unlikely for them both to stop working. Any ideas?

if you can hear the relay, it may just be a bad horn, but yeah check the fuses as mentioned.

I can hear the relay. I checked all the fuses and they are all good. Do the horns really go bad?

there are two horns...mounted as one assembly. Its possible that one or the other (there is a high pitched and low pitched one) was already bad...and then the other went...

are you sure your relay is clicking? does your cruise controll work??

9 times out of ten a bad clockspring is the culperate for horns not working...but usually you get an airbag light and or the cruise controll doesnt work...

could just be bad horns man....

Yea, I am sure the relay is clicking. When I press on the horn it is clicking. I thought it might be a bad clock spring, but the CC works and there is no airbag. I am thinking one horn was already bad, and the other one went. I guess I could just pull them out and test with a battery. I have just been lazy.
