I am guessing that maybe the connecting wires under the steering wheel may be loose? I have replaced the horn relay and also the mini fuse. I have been unable to find where that stupid horn is located to see if there is even one there. My concern though is if I remove the steering wheel cover to get at the wire connection that the airbag will blow up in my face! Also, is there any sort of recalls for this area (Steering wheel)?

What is year? I'll try to post wiring diagram for you. Usually it runs from the horn to the horn relay. The ground for the control side of horn relay is controlled by the horn button on the steering wheel. I guess it is a dodge neon, not sure what year or if it matters? Can you give us the model year?
You have all the informations to find your problem. jump a wire on connector X4 G1 tan wire to ground and check X1 E5 with a test light or multimeter to see if there is a output, you should have 12 volts. If you dont have any voltage the horn relay is defective. I check in the shop manual and the relay come with the underhood fuse block.
check that there is power at the horn wires . If so replace the horn unit. if not check out the relay and the horn fuse. If that is all good check out the connections on the horn ring under the steering wheel
check horn relay.when you say replace did you replace horn control with airbag in steering wheel or did you replace horn.if you replace horn and fuse and relay okay problem is in the horn pad with airbag in steering wheel you have you replace it before horn will work again.
FIRST I WOULD CHECK THE HORN FUSE OR RELAY ...CHECK YOUR OWNERS MANUEL TO SEE FOR LOCATION PROBABLY UNDER HOOD IN A RELAY STATION BOX.IF THOSE ARE GOOD..THEN POSSIBLE BAD HORN ITSELF OR BAD CONTACT BEHIND THE DRIVER AIRBAG,STEERING WHEEL.
a very common cause of this problem is the steering wheel mounted horn button looses it's connection to the horn circuit due to a defective ribbon rotating contact under the steering wheel, the special clock spring shaped ribbon wiring harness is what allows you to turn the wheel and still have a connection to all steering wheel buttons and the airbag, to check this listen for a click when u press the horn button with the engine off, it will be faint but if u listen closely u will hear it, if u don't hear it u will ned to replace the Clock-Spring rotating contact under the steering wheel.

If your Air Bag light light is aluminated and The Cruise Control does not Work then the Problem is in the "CLOCK SPRING" this Component is Located Under the Steering Wheel and it requires the Steering Wheel to Be Removed.You Must have Complete Instructions on this Procedure or Injury Can Be the result.
You most likely need a new clock spring rotating contact under the steering wheel, it is a plastic ribbon with wire in it to connect the horn button and other accessories to the steering wheel while allowing the wheel to turn.
