Where is the horn?

Anyone have any idea where the horn is? And how to get to it? I have a single train horn that I took off my FJ Cruiser and want to put it on the Telluride but have to find the OEM horn first...and then have to figure out how to get behind the grill and in front of the radiator (i'm guessing the horn is in that area) to mount it.

There are two of them and they're mounted on the sides of the radiator next to the headlights. You have to remove the bumper to get to the horns.

Umm...I hope I don't have to remove the bumper in that manner??? :( Dare I ask what happened to the other vehicles? Still trying to figure out how to remove it. But thanks for posting where they are...sure don't sound like 2 horns.

I'm not sure what happened to those vehicles, I found the photos on copart.com which I'm always on there browsing for deals.

Well, it certainly looks like a rather drastic way to remove the front end. It looks like the radiator cover and complete front end are all one piece. What a pain to get in to!. And I think if I remove the skid plate, the horns will be too high to reach from underneath.

The grill does detach from the bumper but you have to remove the bumper to be able to detach it lol.

Sounds like the Sorento, The whole bumper,grill,and radiator cover was all one piece that got removed together.

Curious if you thought about tapping through the fuse box in the engine compartment instead of the horn itself. I circled the Horn fuse.

I actually did think about it but I have to install the air horn and there's no room under the hood. Hopefully there's room behind the grill.

Did anyone ever crack the code on this? I want to install a train horn, but don’t want a secondary switch.

I already knew where it was but getting to it was the issue. The horns are mounted on either side of the radiator and the only way to get to the wires (unless you have super tiny hands and can reach in) is to remove the front bumper/grill. Not super difficult but a pain in the a**. I attached my single train horn (there's not really room for more than that) to the tray in front/under the radiator and if you were to look carefully, you can see it through one of the front air vents. 20200807_114133.jpg 20200807_070610.jpg

I didn't take any videos. Was to busy installing the horn and brush guard. You pop the pins at the radiator cover, 3 in the wheel wells plus 1 screw and about 8 bolts under the front end of the car. Then grab the bumper at the wheel well and start pulling...there is one clip around the bottom of the headlight that you have to pull hard to release. All the diagrams are in the service manual.
