Question about 2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500
bad ground to horn
bad relAY TO HORn
bad wires to all horn circuits
bad horn button.
bad clockspring contacts in steering hub.
no matter way we use a voltmeter to solve this, riddle in 5min work.
i always start in the middle (training) to make 1/2 the possible go byebye in 1 simple test.
if the relay dont pull in at failure, bingo. 1/2 problem solved.
is this clear?
that would say the relay is bad, or power to it lost
or the horn button path is dead.
causing 2 more simple tests.
ask. if you own a $10 meter... volt meter. of any kind ever made.

behind the airbag is the horn switch i dont reccomend checking the the switch unless you know how to disarm the srs systems but i accidently leaned on it once pushed the plate in and when i pushed on it it went off but if i took my hand off it it would go back on otherwise their could just be a simple short

It sounds as if it is a module eprom issue. When the key was turned on the program was scrambled.Try disconnecting the negative and positive battery cables. Once both are disconnected from the battery, touch the two cables together for 1 minute, this will drain the reserve energy in the module. This process will reset the modules to factory default.
Reconnect the battery, positive first then the negative.

Just serviced my own 4x4 Suburban, by buying a 2nd hand encoder motor and replaced the old one, which was trashed by the winter salt. The device is prone to failure since it's made of alluminium and water has an easy time of entering the unit and trashing it.
CAUTION: Abbreviated gratuitous information of how an encoder motor was serviced. If unqualified to deal with repair, seek professional service.
CAUTION: Read at one's own risk.
To replace it, you need to crawl under the vehicle and remove the front drive shaft;
Disconnect the electric harness to the encoder motor, followed by unbolting it.
Take replacement encoder motor and install. There may be an issue with aligning the cogged cam of the transfer case to the encoder motor. If so, the vehicle's 4 wheels will need to be raised off the ground. The engine started, transmission in Park, and using a Vice-Grip® wrench gently rotate cam clockwise approximately 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch, then while set in this position, stop engine. Now attempt to align and attach the encoder motor.
After successfully attaching new encoder motor, attach its wiring loom.
