I have a 1995 Chevy Lumian, that on 3 different times, and failed to crank, all lights work, the horn works, and jumping the battery, does nothing for it. But , under the hood, near the battery in a relay/fuse box that I have tapped the played with the wires running out of the box, and it started. The engine has been both hot, and cold when it would not crank. I would like any input, thanks- throttleman
I had this problem with mine. Check the fuse box in the engine compartment. The piece of plastic there that holds the bolt where the wire from the battery meets the fuse box might be melted or broken. Its a 5 dollar fix and it was a recall listed for the car.

I doubt it has anything to do with the key switch. If the security system is the cause, the security warning light should be on. Someone would need to check the circuit between the key switch and the starter when it fails to crank to find the problem.
your horn button and wiring is ground for the coil side of horn relay, usually. My guess is problem with horn wiring in steering column, maybe a clock-spring issue? I saw two different years listed for your vehicle? It may not make any difference?
your battery is dead. attempt to jump off another cars battery please look up instructions on how to do this if you dont know how. make sure to drive your car around after jumping it to help charge the battery, DO NOT JUST TURN THE CAR OFF RIGHT AWAY.
otherwise your battery may just be toast, go to your nearest auto parts store to buy a new battery and have it put in or put it in yourself if jumping doesnt work.
if it is infact the horn and not the wiring you can take off the old one and replace it with one that is working.
you can test a horn using a car battery and 2 wires.
take the 2 wires and attatch to either post or connection spot on the horn then put on wire to the positice and one to the negative. if it doesn't work the first time reverse the wires and try again. if it doesn't work either time you will need ot go get a new horn.
go back the trunk put the key in and turn it resets the system worked on mine found it out googal i keep take the battire off and didnt work it go off when it get hot but this works the trunk are turn the key resets it strange
keep the steering wheel in one spot, do not rotate, check horn by pressing pad in different areas. If it is intermittent then horn pad is concern. If it works well trying slowly turning steering wheel while pressing horn pad if there is a point in turning the wheel where horn becomes inop, then the common fault is the horn contact ring inside of the steering column
