I drive a 2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder and for some reason, my horn went out. I tried checking the fuse, but it's a different kind of fuse that is a rectangular box so I can't see whether it's blown out of not. Whenever I press on the horn, it just makes a weird clicking noise that is only heard under the hood. I know that the horn works because my factory car alarm still works. Any suggestions?

the black box in the fuse box is a RELAY...try replacing it.

If the relay is out that will solve your problem. If not the horn itself may have gone bad (doubt it) or you may have a lose wire from the horn itself (located under hood)

You say your alarm works which activates the horn though...replace the relay (black fuse you talk about) and you should be good to go.

If the relay is the thing thats clicking then likely you are getting the signal from the horn button...
Next check for Voltage at the horn when you press the button , Your horn may be bad ...

If I remember right Mitsu has 2 horns one for honking , and one for the alarm

Low amperage circuit is working (horn switch/ control coil on relay). That's the click.

Time to check the constant 12v into the relay, wiring from relay to horn, horn itself, and horn ground. The problem is there somewhere.
