Here is your horn wire diagram. https://www.dropbox.com/s/sx37fyq8j0niaxe/tdihorn.pdf?dl=0

At the horn relay can you jump from pin 3 to 5 to see if the horns blow?

Can you verify pins 1 and 3 are powered?

Can you see if you are missing the ground to pin 2 when pushing on the horn switch in the steering wheel?

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
