2018 Ford Explorer XLT
Hello everyone, i got into my explorer this morning for the first time in a few days and noticed the horn sounded different. It sounds weaker and more high pitched. Anyone know what it is and how to fix it? It rained a lot yesterday. I drove it for a while to see if it would go away in case it was wet. I was looking to see where it is located but its hard to see if anything is unplugged. Doesnt look like anyone broke into the front of my car or anything.

The horn is in the area of the hood latch by the grille. Have someone else blow it while you are standing there. Mine hasn't had any issues with water and I did lots of water and snow on stock single tone 19 horn and dual 18 and under years horns.

Here is a picture of the 2017 location right by the hood latch. Not much to see in a wiring sense. It could be one of your horns stopped working or became disconnected.

I really have no idea. I guess the only way to find out is to have someone sound the horn while you stand in front. Perhaps you can tell by feeling for vibrations of each one
:dunno:
