    What's up fellas! So both of my horns on my 2011 Tundra have gone extremely faint. If I was 30 feet away you would probably barely be able to hear them. And it's BOTH. If I unplug one and press the horn both make the same faint wounded horn noise with the other unpugged. Any suggestions? The fuses is fine and I was unable to find the horn relay!

    Could it be water? I had it happen to my 4runner once after pressure washing the bugs off the front grille. Dried out in a day or so never had an issue again.

    Some folks remove the baffles on the horns to make them louder. Not sure how much louder though...

    Possible poor connection between relay and horns, bad ground, bad contacts in horn relay

    This OP^^^. I would take the bolts off that attach the horns to the front, make sure they are not rusted and reinstall.

    Let us know.

    I believe you will find it in the under hood fuse box.

    I've never looked for it but on the 2nd Gen I believe it's in the underhood fuse panel.

    I looked under the hood in the fuse box and was unable to find it. Just the 10amp fuse

    The underside of the fuse panel cover has a diagram that shows where the relay is.
