The horn is located low on the passenger side, under the right headlight, where it is subject to road slush. After checking fuses, I'd check for corrosion at the terminal on the horn. If the airbag light is on and the horn doesn't work then you have a bad clock spring. That is best repaired by a certified technician.

If you have power and ground at the horn when activated, the horn itself is bad it needs to be replaced. If you don't get power or ground it could be faulty wiring that would need repairing or a relay if it has one (1998 model did and its in the passenger compartment fuse panel). If it has a relay, swapping it with a similar accesories relay, I.E. a/c, to check. If get power to the horn the realy is bad and needs replacing. If you still don't, yo can apply power and ground to the horn to check it. If it works the wiring is faulty.

What could be the reasons for only one horn working on a 2000 Maxima?

swap the wires or run a lead over to the suspected bad horn and see if it blows. If the one horn blows and the other doesn't...then I would suspect the horn to be bad. If it blows using the lead from the good horn then you know the wiring is the suspect and need to track it down.
