I would say if you can hear the motor and in does not move it could be a obstruction in the track and if the motor is silent then it may be a fuse or a plug-in bad connection or the seat motor has had a failure and needs to be replaced.

Yes, the Instrument cluster is common to both the horn circuits and the power tilt. However, the horn is actually controlled by the Front Electronic Module (FEM) The IP only relays the horn request data to the FEM.
Beginning diagnosis by scanning the IPC and the FEM would probably be a real good idea.
Personally, I would be checking for inadvertent grounds on the horn circuit between the IPC and the steering column horn button by back-probing the pin at the IPC and watching the reference voltage as the tilt is used. Even if the harness has been replaced, the problem could be located in the clockspring assembly - unless this was also replaced.
The next thing to check would be for a bad ground circuit for the tilt system. It is possible that a bad ground could cause feedback to the IPC or to the FEM if the tilt system is not properly grounded. Ground G201 (Located under the left side of the dash) is common to both the IPC and the steering column clockspring. I would check other grounds as well if no problem is found there.
