My Horn doesn't work when I push on it. However, my horn works for my alarm and for my keyless entry. I assume its inside the sterring wheel/ airbag module. Don't wanna get in there and screw up the airbag though. Anythoughts guru's?

The horn from the alarm is a separate unit in the front right fender. The easiest thing to check is the fuse for the horn. It may have blown. There's nothing much behind the airbag except a plug and two wires. It's possible that something got disconnected, but I kind of doubt it. You might also want to pop the grille off and check the horns themselves. They're right up front.

I know that this is probably obvious, but I've made the same mistake :oops: . Make sure that the car is turned on, because the horn won't work otherwise.
What year car?
Could also be the contact unit behind the steeringwheel that is no longer working.
Do you have steeringwheel radio controls? Do they work?
If the fuse is okay, most likely the contact unit(also called the clockspring)
This is my first time posting and I apologise if it is on the wrong location, I am a memeber of the opel forums (www.opelgt.com) and I follow that diligently and I know how it is when someone posts in the entirely wrong thread. But anyways I just bought a 2000 saab 9-3 4 door 2.0l turbo and the horn fuse was blown when I bought it and the horn will work a few times and then the fuse will blow again it has happened 3 times, it isn't that I use my horn alot, it's just then I have been just to see if the fuse is going to blow again. (which it does) and having a lady is a huge SUV trying to back into me slow motion on my first day of ownership makes me want to have a working horn. Any help would be appreciated

It could be possible that one of the horns as a intermitten short in it, and since the horn isn't somethign that is used constanly but instead intermittently, after a few repeated uses it finally pulls enough current through the fuse to blow the fuse.
Maybe try checking the horns with a meter, or unplugging one and then the other
