There is a 15 amp fuse in the engine compartment fuse panel along with the horn relay. The horn switch or clock spring in the steering wheel are also possible failure points along with the horn itself.

Same, mine stopped working on Dec 22. Only noticable difference was a drastic change in weather... dropped to 17F. I wonder if that has anything to do with it?
2022 SEL - Same here! If the outside temp is below freezing my horn won't work. I think it's definitely related to how cold it is outside. If it's say 20ºF - 30ºF outside and I've been driving for a good 30 minutes, the horn will start to work. Since we've been dealing with way below 0ºF this week, my horn hasn't worked at all. I have an appt to get it checked out at the dealership on 1/9 - will give ya an update!

With all the crazy drivers in Chicago, I have to use mine all the time. It's either that, or my middle finger. Never had a problem with it not working. But I haven't used the car since we got this sub-zero (F) snap a few days ago, so who knows?

My motto is the smaller the car, the bigger the horn should be. Wolo Bad Boy should easily fit under the hood. Just don't try to run it off the existing wiring.

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with temperature because mine did not work right after i bought my car during that "arctic blizzard" we just had.
A couple days later (wasnt much warmer mind you) i pressed down the fuse and the relay but neither clicked or anything, suddenly horn works and no issues since.

It doesn't normally get super cold down here in Texas -- mainly ice / snow / slush. I'm wondering if the horns are failing when they get packed with ice, or if it is just the super cold.

It was -29 c ( -20 f) this morning and my horn isn't working. My front camera is not obscured but warning lights indicate that it is and that forward collision ... is disabled. Also, with all these warning systems how on earth did they leave out a low windshield washer warning? Still waiting for my new bumper but I`ll be making a serv appnt for the horn and sensor issue. I`ve had this car for just over 2 months and I really do like this car but these cold weather shortcomings worry me

Brrr...that's cold. Froze your horn. I read a post in another forum from someone who appears to be a Hyundai mechanic. He said the horns on Kona and Elantra are having same cold weather issues. Look at this pic of the Venue horn. It's like it's mounted upside down, water can sit in the groove where the 2 halves of the horn snap together and can seep inside the horn casing, then freeze the inner workings. The mechanic says he seals the groove on new horns with RTV sealant and bends the bracket so water runs off. Most dealer shops will only go by the book or Hyundai service bulletins so this "fix" may not get applied.

Forward collision avoidance is done via the camera and the radar sensor behind the front bumper. Make sure the radar is not blocked.

-19 c on the drive home - horn works and no sensor or camera alerts. On one hand, I didn't have all these safety and comfort features in my Echo - on the other hand, I'd like the stuff I paid for to work properly. No ice on the front windsheild, no snow on the hood or front grill. If these winter cold blasts in my part of the world disable a sensor and more importanly the horn I have to wonder if my build was for my geographical location. (I live in the southern prairies) . I'll watch and record this pattern of cold weather and horn/sensor issues before I make a serv appnt. On Sat it warms up to a high of -2 c with an overnight low of -16c woofreakinhoo!

I know the weather well, lived in Alberta, Fort Saskatchewan and Calgary. They do build Hyundai's based on geography but for cooling/heating. For instance, cold climate builds have an electric heater to speed up warming the cabin because the coolant takes a long time to warm up. However, the electronic sensors would be the same everywhere. Since your car reported that there was a problem there may be trouble codes stored that the dealer could read but some codes are erased if the problem clears on its own, making it all the harder to troubleshoot. I hope they sort out your issues quickly.
My Venue hasn't shown any temperature related or any other issues for that matter...at least not yet.
