If you are getting a clicking noise when you push the button, that means that the switch in your steering wheel is getting 12 volts to the relay. that is a good thing as the switch in the steering wheel is the bear to work on in the system. Either the horn itself has failed, or the relay is popping but the contacts have failed and the 12 volts is not getting to the horn. Horns are cheap used at junkyards and not really very expensive at a parts store. The horn is most likely near the radiator, behind the front grille. Looks like a horn, circular horn shape with an opening. You may have to get the grille off to get at the horn or maybe you can get at it from underneath. Make a jumper cable out of an old extension cord, just strip and bare the ends of the wire. Have someone hold on set of bared ends to the battery terminals while you hold the other ends to the connectors on the horn which you can see after you pull the plug off. If the horn honks, then it is good and you need to get a new relay. If the horn does not honk then you need a new horn. Usually just one bolt takes it off. You might have a 3 or 2 wire unit so make sure you get the proper replacement. I always get one out of a junkyard You know it is an exact fit if it came out of a similar car so no drilling or fabrication required.
