It's only a few weeks old, never been in the rain. Mounted on the extra motor bolt hole with rubber dampers. Everything is connected, and the relay clicks when I hit the button. I've only hit it maybe 5 times, and it has about 50 miles on it. Any ideas?

Have you put a volt meter on the power supply wires at the horn - to be sure power it is getting power to the horn?

The relay that comes with the Stebel horn is very poor. I've seen photos of some totally corroded inside even when new.

I would suggest getting a good quality SEALED relay.

Turns out it was the relay. I got another one at Advance Auto, can you point me to one of these sealed ones?

my stebel quit working also, due to a blown fuse. I wired it right with the relay and made a water proof jacket for the relay. i checked all connections and wiring and can only guess i used the wrong fuse. i was using a 10amp and replaced with a 25.

The wiring kit I got with mine had a 30 fuse in it.
Where did you put your relay? Mine's under the seat in the little tool compartment, so I know it's not subject to the weather.

my relay is tucked up under the fairing high up in the left corner and is water tight. maybe i was right the first time when i installed with a 30 amp fuse. i went with a 10 because i thought 30 might be too high.

A 20 amp fuse with 14ga wire overkill or 16ga wire being okay is the way to go. I've read reports of the current draw being in the teens. If a 30amp fuse is used, 10ga wire is needed. The fuse needs to be sized to protect the wire from overheating.

Hey Jim, do you sell just the relay, not the whole kit? If you could send me a link via e-mail or PM I would appreciate it.
