Question about Chevrolet S 10
I would check the horn to see if it gets power with a testlight, and try to ground out one of the leads to see if it sounds. It should have power at all times and the button on the steering wheel controls the ground. That can be a source of the problem as well, the button on the steering wheel may not be grounding out the wire to the horn.
Can also take apart the steering wheel until you get down to the horn switch contact and try to ground it out with a screwdriver or test light to see if sounds the horn.
May have to remove the air bag first, though.
The following talks about the steering wheel disassembly:
Steering Wheel Removal & Installation Except Models With Air Bag To Remove:
Exploded view of a steering wheel mounting
Steering wheel alignment and installation
NOTE: Before installing the steering wheel, be sure that the turn signal switch is in the Neutral position. DO NOT mis-align the steering wheel more than 0.8 in. (20mm) from the horizontal centerline.
Unplug the horn wire
Loosen and remove the wheel retaining nut
Use a suitable threaded puller to loosen the steering wheel from the shaft

These models are equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in Section 6.
