If your car horn is beginning to sound weak, it could be due to any of the following issues:
  • A bad horn switch
  • A faulty horn relay
  • A wiring issue
  • A broken clock spring
These issues are commonly linked to weak-sounding car horns. But you could also be dealing with a number of other issues or combinations thereof. You should take your car to a mechanic to find out what the problem is and get it repaired.
