guessing does not work, sure inspection for damage wires
but Airbags are dangerous. news flash 22 killed in last few years. from bags, TAKATA?
are yours recalled>?>?>>>>>>??????
all things can be fixed, why ask that?
time and money are the limits only.
bad fuse "horn"
bad horn relay (if fitted, i didnt look)
bad ground on horn (base rusty to frame) big time common.
bad wiring to horn.
bad horn button.
we use a magical tool called voltmeter to find it.,
ask if willing to test and not guess.
Find horn under hood,than unplug the wire on it ,take a long enough wire to reach battery and horn touch wire on horn where the plug gos in and the other end of wire on battery,if the horn dont sound than its the horn, go to harborfreight or parts store and buy a new one, ifr the horn does sound than take off panel on steering wheel,3 screws behid wheel and look for wire to be pluged in and check the grounding wire.

Subject: How to check an inoperative horn
Customer's exact description:...the horn on my 1995 Buick LeSabre does not work...how to fix? Here's how it's done: Step 1. Start with the pre-check: Do a Thorough Visual Inspection Do a thorough visual and "hands-on" underhood inspection before starting any diagnostic procedure! You can find the cause of many problems by just looking, thereby saving yourself a lot of time.• Has the vehicle been servicedrecently? Sometimes things getreconnected in the wrong place, ornot at all.• Don't take shortcuts. Inspect connectorsand wiring which may be difficult tosee due to location. Step 2. Instructions: One. Remove the horn relay and check for battery voltage at the relay connector terminals.
If battery voltage is present at both terminals, go to Two.
If battery voltage is not present, check the ORN wiring and the relay fuse for circuit.
Two. With the horn switch depressed, measure voltage from the relay terminals. Wear hearing protectors, if someone is assisting you and depressing the horn switch while you're under the hood.
If voltage is present, go to Three.
If battery voltage is not present, check the black wire for an open circuit; check the connectors for proper terminal contact; check the in-line connector for proper terminal contact; check the spring loaded contact, slip ring, and horn switch for an open circuit.
Three: Connect a fused jumper from relay connector terminal 30 to terminal 86.
If the horn does not sound, go to Four.
If the horns sound, replace the horn relay.
Four: Disconnect the the suspect horn connector. Connect a fused jumper from the suspect horn terminal B (dark green) to the positive + battery terminal.
If the horn sounds, check the wiring to the horn relay for an open circuit or short to the ground.
If horn doesn't sound, check the black wiring for an open circuit, if OK, then replace the horn.
Tell Kwik-Kar that they are full of ****. The Sienna A/C is virtually bulletproof, and I have NEVER had to "replace" a system. That being said, I would guess that the freon charge is low. Open the hood, turn on the A/C and look at the sight-glass next to the radiator. Do you see any bubbles? If so, the freon charge is low. Get a qualified A/C tech to hook up same A/C gauges & read the high & low sides of the system, that result will give you the avenue to persue.
