Some Chrysler products have this "clockspring issue" (my Plymouth Voyager did) and it can cause those symptoms. I did an online search for recalls on the 1998 Prizm and came up with nothing mentioning a clockspring, so that is probably not be related to your car. I can think of a couple of possibilities: 1) You have two separate problems - you had an air bag issue, and now your horn died (you could try replacing your horn to see if that problem goes away).
2) You have a problem that is on a circuit that is connected to the same circuit card in the car's computer that controls the air bag and the horn, and because they're all on the same "circuit" your seeing problems in these other systems.
I would suggest doing electrical checks (fuses, wiring, connections, etc. - be careful around the airbag and it's circuitry (you might want a technician to do this).

The part is still available from GM. It is part # 94857236.
You must be careful when replacing the clock spring as it controls the SRS system.
You will need to remove the steering wheel airbag and and the steering wheel itself.
Important: Perform this procedure in order to prevent deployment of the air bags from the reserve energy supply power.

you need to have the codes read for the air bag to know for sure which direction to start ,but yes, they are all tied in to the clock spring.

it's inside the steering wheel
must be careful, because of the air bag.
disconnect the battery and wait for 10 minutes for the air bag capacitor to discharge power.

the clock pring is a yellow round piece that fitted inside the steering column. there is a snap ring hold the clock spring in place. disconnect the wiring then remove the clock spring.
