Help please - Horn doesn't work

My horn doesn't work, everytime I push the wheel all I hear is just a click, almost sounds like a blinker. Judging by that sound I am guessing that my problem might be with the horns themselves. Someone had installed an aftermarket alarm and then cut the siren/speaker on that so I am wondering if they cut the factory horns too. My problem is that I don't know where the factory horn(s) are located. If someone can help me with location of these horn(s) I would sincerely appreciate it. Pics would be even better.

Thanks in advance

Same thing happened to mine, the wires came loose on the horn so i just pushed them back on and now it works. The horn is on the drivers side below the headlight. I can get a pic for you later if you would like?

I have a horn that doesn't work and the fuse is blowing out.
My horn has a single circut. It is not a double, according to the eletrical book I should have a relay with it but I have not been able to find the relay to see if the short is in the relay.

Do you know where the relay is at if there is a relay or if I am barking up the wrong tree?
