Default Horn Replacement Help

My factory horn has stopped working. Before I go get a replacement, I was wondering if their is something else I should check for like a blown fuse?

If so, any assistance with where to look for the problem would be appreciated.

On the other hand, if I do just need to replace the horn, help with where it is located / removal instructions would be great as well.

Thanks!

Default I would like to know also

The horn is weak but an air horn requires a compressor, is there an aftermarket that's bolts in without to many additional parts with more sound?

I upgraded to dual (high/low) electric horns and they sound great and NO relay
This link is from another forum

Wolo Bad Boy Compact Air Horn, Model# 419 | Air Horns + Sirens | Northern Tool + Equipment

And you should install a relay tied to directly the battery for this air horn setup

the stock horn is located behind the chrome upper grille assembly, fairly easy to get too... 4 bolts and some plastic tabs. It has a spider nut on the back side a 10mm wrench will take it off... however there IS a fuse... so you could check that first, its in the owners manual so just quickly thumb through that and scoot over to your closest auto parts store... when you pull the fuse look closely at the inside, there is a small metal filament that if broken/burnt means the fuse is the culprit...
