Which relay controls the horn?!

Hello, recently some water got into my steering column and the horn got ridiculous and kept honking, so I disconnected it but it still kept honking (could hear the relay clicking) but I just went to sleep.

Anyway, before I assume that it's the clockspring, I want to replace that relay but I can't figure out which one it is!

I know the horn still works because I plugged it directly to the battery and it worked, also once I accidentally touched a ratchet to the battery and to the frame and my horn honked! That was weird!

So, is the relay in the fuse box? I looked at the description of each one and none looked like the horn one.

Please help!

I have nothing useful to tell you but I think you need some holy water and a priest. Your JK is possessed. Pretty soon the steering wheel will spin 360 degrees and green coolant will spew from the radiator...



Seriously - good luck.

I have to take a look but im inclined to say, no. I dont think that relay would be in the fuse box. Im having problems with my horn too. Went trough a deep pudle last weekend and it took a dump on me. I replaced w an aftermarket one and now my fuse keeps blowing off.

It's definitely in that area because I heard it clicking.

If you replaced it with an aftermarket horn you need to put in higher rated fuses. That happened to me too.

Put in 25 one instead of 10 for m23 or m22 (or something like that, it's labelled on the fuse box).

Ill guess i can try that. I just haven't got to it. And i tend not to put higher rated fuses where they don't belong but i guess that for the horn there should be no problems.

Yea, I didn't see it being an issue because there's already a relay there.

Just don't press down on the horn for an hour!

Though I am not a chrysler engineer, maybe it can totally overload the TIPM and whatever and start a crazy fire.

Could always wire up a relay + run the aftermarket horn to the battery, but that's such a hassle!
