    Could be your relay, horn button, or clock spring.

    When your horn doesn't work does your cruise control work? If not, it's your clock spring.

    I can give you steps on how to do it.

    Disconnect battery
    Use the star bit required to take off the steering wheel (screws on both sides of the steering wheel)
    Take the steering wheel off and disconnect the clock spring.
    Basically thats how it goes.

    update!!!! i had tested the cruise control, the light came on at first on the dash (cruise) and when i drove the car it didnt work so i parked the car and tryed to turn off the cruise control light, it wouldnt turn off until i had turned off the car, then i turned on the car, the cruise control light wont turn on anymore and the SRS light stays on, would it still be the Clock spring or something else now.......

    if your srs is on, the cruise wont work and the horn wont work, its most definetly the clockspring as all 3 of those signals go thru it.

    An update to how to remove the steering wheel. Disconnect battery, wait about 10 minutes, remove the Torx screws in the side of the steering wheel, there is one on each side, with those out, the airbag will slide out from the center, disconnect the wire on the airbag, set the airbag aside in a safe place. I always wear gloves when doing this, you dont want any static electricity around an airbag. Once the airbag is out, disconnect the wiring from the clockspring that goes to the connector under the steering column cover.

    Yep horn button is fine. Just replace the clock spring and go from there if the issue isn't resolved.

    just to clarify things, make sure you get specifically for your car's year,cause the 99-01 clock spring connector is different from 02-03
