Any of the check you mentioned DIY? Else I'll have it checked with a local mechanic.



Unlikely. I'm facing this problem since a month now and at time in the middle of the way. Also, there has been no rain and the car washer uses as little water as possible.
Check the horn when engine is not running. Do you feel loud. If yes then it needs horn adjustment. There is also other possibility the contact breaker points inside the horn got corroded.

Any pointers?
I have a feeling that just a turn of the adjuster screw in the horn, in the right direction might solve it.

but, as a precautionary measure, check the voltage across the terminals, while idle, engine off, and while revving.
