Could be you have a bad horn. with a test light or DVOM. Disconnect the horn wire at the horn. Have someone push the horn button and see if you get battery voltage at the wire harness connector. If you do plug the wire back on to the horn. Push the horn button again. Does the horn work? If it doesn't, have the person hold the horn button down while you tap on the horn. Does the horn try to make any noise? Many times an old horn will get corroded inside and not vibrate like it should. But if power is there at the horn, the horn should work.

If you don't have power at the horn connector from the harness I would look at the horn contacts up at the steering wheel. It is very common for the contacts to have poor connections at the steering wheel ring and the actual horn contacts of the steering wheel.
