On my 98 Accord EX, the horn contacts in the steering wheel became corroded. Now the horn only works when I press the horn button and rock the steering wheel. Honda said that it would cost over $800 to repair it because the contacts are integrated with the air bag and the whole thing needs to be replaced. I may spray it with electrical contact cleaner from Radio Shack. If that doesn't work, I'll drive it into the river.

A horn might not work on a 1996 Honda Accord because of a blown fuse. There is also the possibility that the wire was cut or damaged. The horn is part of the security system. A used car might have the horn wire cut because the previous owner was annoyed by the horn blaring when someone came near the car.
