Hi

When you have a fuse blow and you replace it you still have to get to the root cause.  The fault can be anywhere from the steering wheel through relays and harness etc down to the actual horn assembly itself.

The best way for you is to trace this path until you find the failure.  The main cause is an electrical short somewhere because they generate heat and cause components to fail.

Be methodical  and thorough and you will find the gremlin. If you are unsure where components are on your car by all means just ask.
