Has anyone else had issues with their horn? I bought my car in March 2020 and then horn stopped working in July 2020, so the dealership replaced it. Now January 2021 it is going out again, it only works intermittently and when it does work it's extremely muffled. Literally sounds like it is honking from two roads over...

Have had my 2021 SX since May 2020. The horn stopped working just a couple of weeks ago (Feb. 2021). Since I rarely use it, I will wait until my next oil change and have the dealer fix it.

I’ve now lost count of the horn complaint posts between here, Reddit, and the FB group. I haven’t had any problems with mine (aside from the clown car tone they decided on), but this definitely isn’t too rare of an issue.

A handful of people bought aftermarket Hella horns. I don’t remember seeing followups on those projects so I don’t know what the actual issue was to start with.. could be a control module as mentioned above or potentially just bad disc horns. Very curious to find out

Will stay in touch with you to see what’s going on my best guess it’s a power control module or body control module
I just got my Seltos back from the dealer, they replaced my horn for the second time. I was told it is due to the placement of the horn, it sits under the driver side headlamp and gets wet and/or freezes. They pretty much said next time it goes out I have to contact Kia directly.
