    Okay here is a real stupid question but I don't know where else to turn. My
    horn stopped working on my 1998 Neon. Checked horn relay and find it is
    fine. Now I have to find the horn itself to check for corroded connection
    and such. Problem is I for the life of me cannot find the horn itself under
    the hood. Sure could use some help. I'm really not as stupid as I sound
    here. Or maybe I am. Thanks.

    Its located under the front left corner of the front bumper facia( behind the
    orange left side turn light).You`ll probably need to get the car on ramps for
    easy access.

    I hope it's not the clock spring inside the steering wheel... horns
    don't fail so often. Voyagers have faulty clock springs installed, CC
    has recall on them. Check that if it's faulty, repair is something like
    200 + labour 50 !

    Turns out that after testing with volt meter that horn itself is defective.
    Did find horn and am receiving power to the unit. Anyone have an idea how
    much a replacement would cost? Thanks to everyone for your help.

    About $15 a pair for the cheap FIAMM jobs at your FLAPS. Won't look
    factory, but will work just fine unless you're going for the concours
    show car look.

    A salvage yard item for a few bucks. Any horn will do, probably, if you can
    bolt it on.

  7. No, not really. Horns are made to blow certain notes. The typical US is
    note A and note F
    for a dual-tone horn. If your car is dual tone and the other tone is A, and
    you buy an A in the
    junk yard, you won't hear any difference. There are some horns that have
    both notes in
    the horn itself. I have seen notes D and C in wrecking yards also. The
    note is stamped on
    the horn.
