Factory Alarm

I recently had some body work done to the front of my 89 W201 190E. Since then, the factory alarm will not sound the horn. The lights still flash, but the horn does not sound. It still works when you press the horn button on the steering wheel, but the alarm won't sound it. Does anyone know of a wire or something that perhaps didn't get plugged back in?

Thanks in advance.

The horn for the alarm is by the inner fender ...near the fuse box I seem to remember......well, the regular horns are under the front of the car.

There are two wires to the alarm horn......if they are connected, check for voltage by activating the alarm....I know a lot of tech's disconnect the horn when working on the car......stops other tech's throwing large wrenches at you !

Well I found a horn on the left inner fender near the ABS control box. The wires are connected to it though. I guess I'll have to dig deeper. I also checked for blown fuses, but then realized that if the fuse was blown, the lights would not flash either.
