Thanks Bob love your daytona had to sell all mine now have the dart tried power to horns they work fine fuses all seem good ...the 6 bus fuses under dashFirst step, check all fuses.
On some of these cars, the wire in the steering column would fray and short out, blowing a fuse.
Also, jumper power to the horn anyway, to see if it is working.
Thanks very much your right I didnt word it well it is a ground set up in wheel they make contact but no soundAt the steering wheel, doesn't the horn switch just complete a ground circuit? As in there is never any power going through the horn switch at the steering wheel.
Thanks very much will go back out side after I eat my steaks lol thanks for the great helpFrom the 1970 Dart/Challenger service manual on MyMopar:
"The horn circuit consists of a horn switch located in the steering wheel hub and a horn relay mounted in the passenger compartment under the instrument panel at the left kickpad".
It would likely be a 3-terminal cube. You should hear or feel a faint click inside it when pressing the horn button.
The manual has the troubleshooting procedures and wiring diagrams.
Thanks very much Allen didn't know we had diagrams on here totally appreciate it ...now I just got to figure out how to get to them for future reference. Thanks again you all are great! We are MOPAR!Here is a link to a wiring schematic for your vehicle. Scroll until you find a reference for 1971 Dodge Dart. There are 2 schematics.

In addition to the tips presented look at the wiring connector that carries the load side power from the horn relay to the horns. There is a connector at the firewall through which the load side power for the horn passes. This must be in good condition and not corroded and separated.
