The problem can be with the horn pad, the horn relay or the horn itself. Find your horn relay, it should be in the engine compartment fuse box. Remove the relay and test for power at the legs. there should be two legs that have power. If there is power there, take the cover off the relay and plug it back in. Squeez the relay points together and see if the horn works. If the horn still does not work, it is probably the horn itself. If it does work it is probably the horn pad, but you don't want to mess with that because of the air bag. Let a pro do it.
All of this is predicated on the fact that you have checked all the fuses.
Hope this helps

Testimonial: "The advice given was excellent. I'm not mechanically inept, so this advice will get me pointed in the right direction. Thanks Again!"
It is probably either a bad compressor clutch or the system has lost its fluid and the low pressure switch is keeping it from coming on. If you track the AC lines on one of them you will see a sensor with a plug connected to it. Start the car turn the AC to max, blower also. Then unplug the connector on the pressure switch and jump the wires in the connector. Use a flat head screwdriver if the connector has exposed pins or a paperclip if the pins are inside little tubes. If you do this and the compressor kicks on then you have lost your refrigerant and have to bring it to be leak tested. If it doesn't come on then it is probably the AC compressor clutch.
