I have the same problem on my ford. I used a meter and checked the harness inside the steering wheel. This was the problem. I had power up to the area where the is like a white tape with wires inside it. On the end where it conects the cruise control and horn and air bag the is no power. I have to buy a new harness. They cost around $113.

Was Cruise Control working before the New Horn was installed? The power supply to the Horn, (input to ground wire) is connected to the Cruise Control Module (CCM). This CCM is wired to the Relay Switch Box located in the Engine Bay. The Relay Box cover will have a Chart indicating what function each Relay coresponds to. Your local autoparts store (AutoZone) can test the Relay Switch, and you'll know (if any Relay) need to be replaced.
The CCM is also wired to the Steering Wheel, but first passes through the Clock Spring Coil, located just behind the Steering Wheel. The Clock Spring allowes for the Function Buttons on the Steering Wheel to have power while Steering Wheel spins.
The Clock Spring can malfunction or break, its rare, but this will cut power to the Function Buttons on Steering Wheel. If ALL the buttons on Steering Wheel dont work, then the Clock Spring is the Culprit. The Coil may need to be replaced.
The Cruise Control Module itself may have failed and also would cause a few or all Steering Wheel Functions to quit working.
But first check the Relay Switch Box and examine the Harness Cables connecting (Steering Wheel--to--CCM--to--Relay Switch Box--to--Battery Supply).
Also if Cruise Control was working before the new Horn was installed and now not working, then most likely the Problem is a bad wire connection somewhere and/or is a faulty Relay.
Fuse #19 (15 amp) controls the cruise control. It also powers the horn so check your horn. If it works then check the cruise controls ground. If the fuse is good BUT the horn still doesn't work, then check the horn relay, as it also powers the cruise control. Check all wires/connections going to these parts also.
You can start by checking the horn fuse in the engine compartment, fuse # 7. If this tests good with power on both sides using a meter, next jumper the horn relay, normally open contacts. The horn relay is relay # 205 in the engine compartment fuse panel, it is the half size ISO relays. use the picture below, to find the correct pins in the relay socket to jumper with a wire.
IF the horn works with this, I would suspect a problem with the clock spring in the steering wheel. Do the other items in the steering wheel work ( cruise control ) ?
The body control module (BCM) controls the operation of the horn for the security system and remote keyless entry (RKE) functions. Circuit 28 is grounded by the BCM when the horn operation is desired. Normal operation of the horn is performed by the horn switch grounding the horn relay and is not controlled by the BCM.
You don't need to take this to a dealer ,besides there are no more saturn dealers . Try a independent repair shop .
Does the cruise control light light up when you turn the cruise on ? Have you checked the fuse's ?
sounds like a bad clockspring. located in steering column under steering wheel, operates airbag, horn cruise etc, it make wire connection possible so the wheel can spin, its a roll of flat wires, that unroll and roll up as steering wheel is truned from left to right,wires break after a while.
Although I don't think the cruise is an issue for safety, reach in under hood , or in grille area and find your horn(s) and just pull the connector off them temporarily, so they won't blow & put fuse back in and see if cruise starts to work again. It's not unusual for circuits to be labeled wrong or not at all in fuse panels. Then you can turn your attention to horn problem.
For inspection you shouldn't need the cruise to work but for the horn have you checked the fuse? or relay? Another thing to look for is are the wires both connected to the horn? if all that checks out check and see if power is getting to the horn and also check in the steering wheel to make sure nothing happened there.
