    When you say the air bag was not replaced, are you saying the bag was cut out, or left hanging and taped up? Is the "face" of the steering will still torn open?

You have a damaged Spiral Cable, or, as more commonly referred as a "Clockspring". This is the wiring that connects the steering column to the steering wheel. Inside the housing for the Clockspring is a flat wire harness that connects the vehicle harness to the variuous controls on the steering wheel...the horn, the air bag, the cruise switch, etc etc. What you need to do is go to a Toyota dealership parts department, and purchase a Spiral Cable assembly. Pull the steering wheel, and you will see it. Remove the 4 screws, and pull the Cable unit, and unplug it. Fit the new Cable assembly, and refit the screws; plug it all back together. Just remember to keep the steering wheel CENTERED...the replacement Cable assembly comes in teh "Centered" position. Do not rotate it left or right, or you will lose the centering of the cable..This will break the wire..

Where is the horn brush and slip ring on a 1996 suburban. After a new multifunction switch was replaced the horn won't work.

Under the steering wheel. If the clock spring is broken the horn wont blow, the cruse wont work and the air bag light stays on.

1996 chrysler town & country horn & cruise control not working. Airbag light is on

this problem is typically fixed by replacing the air bag clock spring, located below the air bag itself. Chrysler offered a lifetime warranty extension for certain 1996-1998 minivans with this problem. contact a Chrysler dealer and give them your vehicle identification number to see if yours falls under this warranty.

Horn ha stopped working completely; was told by mechanic that it needs a sensor which costs $300+; what happened to the old replace the fuse?

Why would a horn require a sensor?
I don't buy it.
Tell us more on the make, model, and year.
If someone told me the horn was $300, I would wire a new horn and button on the dash for $15.

Would appreciate help for a Toyota Corolla 2007 non-working horn.

If the horn works with direct connection, and fuse, relay, and circuit breaker are all good, it's the switch in the steering wheel. If it is anything like the chrysler auto's, the switch and the air bag module is all one unit, can't replace just the switch, the whole thing, and it's about $700 to $800 for those units, at least it is here, and can only get them at a dealer.
