Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier
In many cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament for the horn circuit, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work to disarm the airbag system.

Hi, since the horn works from the key fob, that tells us the horn,relay and the circuit are okay. The problem is most likely in the steering column. The horn switch is part of the airbag in the steering wheel. There may also be a broken wire beneath the air bag. You may want to take it to someone who has experience around air bag systems, since you can be injured if you try to remove it yourself.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

if you hit the horn you should be able to thear the realy click, if not remove the horn pad and groung the wire, if it clicks the steering column has a bad ground, then remove the horn wire, its behind the right headlight unit lower down, and test voltage there, if good check horn ground, if all is good replace horn

It sounds like the switch itself, on the steering wheel, are not making contact. I'm guessing that if you can remove the front part of the steering wheel you could check and clean the contacts and also give you a chance to test the horn, while you are in there.

If the horn was very faint then it probably went bad. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I take it your fuse panel doesn't have a diagram on it or you don't have the owner's manual?
