I don't know about the horn but there'* a chance (slight) that there might be an inline fuse that'* going into the radio that you overlooked. This would be more of a reality with an aftermarket unit.

I got the radio issue figured out. Still no horn though. Fuse in the main fuse box is ok. I"m gonna check the other fuse panel when I get a chance.

The horn button is most likely toast.
It'* inside the airbag assembly.

I'm happy with just an added an external microswitch,
on the console shifter.
I ran the wires to the relay'* coil connection (black wire)
and the other to ground.

The horn relay is activated by grounding it'* coil energizing the electromagnet, and therefore closing the main contacts. releasing the ground connection reverses the operation.

this post is older than the other one you dug up.
I understand you are trying to get some help but please do not dig up really old post.

I moved your thread to this section. Please have patience waiting for replies.
