    Horns are simple to replace. Two wires going into most. Most likely, your horns wiring has come loose, or your fuse is burnt. Minor job at most.

    First find where your horn is and then unplug it. Take a circuit tester or a multimeter (on DC colts) and connect it to the wire going to the horn. (One end to ground the other end to the wire.) Press in the horn switch and if the light comes on or if you get 12 Volts on your multimeter the horn is bad. If you get nothing the wiring or the horn switch is bad.

    Oh man OH MAN...I cant go a day without a good ole hornhonk.

    There is a connector between the wheel and the hub, make sure thats not interrupted at all. Check the fuse as well as mentioned above.
