Sounds like a fuse let go!
Get an ohm meter and check your fuses. They should read 0 ohms (or whatever the meter reads when the leads are touched together)
Remember to pull the fuses first before testing them.
I'd check all the fuses while you're there.

If that doesn't show anything wrong, then check the ignition switch itself. Turn it on and off and wiggle it a bit. If the headlight flickers, there's something wrong in the switch, and you'll probably need to pull and clean or possibly replace it.

Troubleshoot a non working horn

fastest way to test this is get you a 12 volt test light or a volt meter. unplug the 2 wies going to the horn 1 should have 12 volts with key on the other is the ground from the button. put the test leads in each wire the light should come on when you push the button, if it does then yu have a bad horn. the horn is the most common problem when these don't work, not very often a wiring problem.
