Check power to the horn when button is pushed if it is getting power then need new horn otherwise could be break in wiring or faulty horn switch.

Get yourself a test light put it to the positive wire that goes to the horn and have someone else push the horn on the steering wheel. If it lights up you have power. Keep us posted.

Ok well you know now to check fuses and lastly if those check out you'll have to replace the horn switch.

Any auto parts store should be able to order you one, they're pretty easy to do.

That one is different than my setup because I have the airbag but should be that hole round piece that the wires connect to.

Did the horn work prior to ownership? Have you checked to make sure it is still plugged in on the steering column? I've seen people disconnect them there because the padding wears down and causes the contacts to touch making the horn blare until you disconnect it. Also could just be te horn is old and worn out in which ase it is located in between the driversside fender and inner fender.

When my dad owned the car it worked and it went out on him like 3 yrs ago and never fixed now that I have it
I'm fixing what needs fixing
I tried connecting a wire from the positive post if the battery to the positive hook up to the horn and only one horn honked(closest to the floor) and the other didn't
