2010 Kia Rio Strike with 1.4l petrol g4ee eng.

Hi all, just found out my horn packed up today. Beeps for half a second sometimes then cuts out. Sometimes doesn't beep at all. I haven't done any fault finding yet but I popped the bonnet today to check the connectors aren't loose but I've found what looks to be 2 horns. One under the power steering fluid reservoir and one behind the front grill. I don't know why there would be two or if it's normal for cars to have two horns..

Are they both horns? Is one a horn and if so, what is the other?

Alarm signal sounder horn, just in front of bulkhead.
The one at front grill is the regular horn.
I had trouble on a 2011 Kia Ceed with the regular horn, was related to the actual push button/switch on steering wheel.
If you have a 9v (PP3) battery, you can test the horn by momentarily connecting across the battery. You'll know then if the horn is a dud or not.
Then it's a case of eliminating any wiring, the horn button, or the fuse/relay that supplies the power to the horn.
