First thing I need to ask is are you having problems with your cruise control also? If so the problem is more than likely the clock spring. It is located behind the steering wheel and allows for the connection between the steering wheel and the wiring harness to stay in place when the wheel is turning. I have replaced 1 on a 2000 Durango and at least 4 others on different Mopar vehicles.

First thing to check is the fuse. Next I would check the horn itself by disconnecting to wires and bench test it with a 12 volt source. If both of those check out then you have a shorted wire or a cut/nicked wire and will have to trace that until you find where.
Battery removal will not work. What will work is this: Use key to lock and then unlock driver's side door. I unclipped both horns at passenger side of engine compartment at front because they will go off while you are doing this procedure. I used this procedure last night after a rear passenger accidentally set of my alarm. I know this works! My vehicle is a 99' Durango.
If it is the same horn, there is probably something in the area where you push to activate the horn. The horn itself is obviously working so there is no fuse problems, most likely your problem is in the steering wheel.
disconnect the plug to the horn then install a new fuse if the fuse does not blow out replace the horn. Do the reverse if the fuse does not blow out to the cruise. if the cruise is blowing fuses the unit may be seized up somewhere maybe the cable or actuator is corroded.
Look in your manuel, there are steps to change the Key less remote setting to customize it the way you'ld like the car Key less system to work.
Good luck and hope this helps, if your still having problem. Just drive the Dodge dealer and ask the Service adviser to help you out, he or she would be more then happy to reprogram the key less system for you.
Your horn inop problem is in the rotating contact for the horn connection underneath the steering wheel, it is called the clock-spring contact by us techs because that is what it looks like, if you do replace it yourself then you must disarm the airbag or serious injury can result.
