Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
Start with checking to see if you have power at the horn relay on pins 85 and 30 and if so see if the horn will sound when you ground pin 86, if the horn then sound that means the horn bad is not grounding and that usually means the clock spring and or the horn switch has failed.
