Exclamation Horn Problem

Hey guys I got an 01 Ford F250 7.3 stroker and I have been having a problem with my horn. When I press my horn it just makes a clicking sound that comes from the relay. Im not sure if my horn might just be out or what? Any ideas or suggestions? Also can anyone tell me where my horn is located I tried looking for it, but cant find it?

I believe it's behind the grill, near radiator mounts. I'm not 100% on that though.

do you also have a airbag light on, if so it could be the clockspring.

Is it lit up in the instrument cluster? The one above the cup holders doesnt matter. If its lit up on the instrument cluster and the horn doesnt work, you need a clockspring.

no I was talking aobut the one over the cup holder. Any other ideas of what it could be. The other day I was driving and I went to press the horn and it honked n then kinda sounded like it was dyin out. You think it might just be the horn thats bad?

unplug the horn and see if you have voltage at the connection when yhou honk. You said you could hear the relay click so that means the low power contol side is ok. you need to check from the relay to the horn. so it either has a wiring problem between the relay an horn or the horn is bad
