1998 Mercury Tracer 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 125000 miles

I had a short in the horn & had to take the fuse out to keep it from blowing. The A/C worked the day that I unplugged the horns & wrapped the wires in electrical tape. Then when I got back into the car The A/C did not work (10 min max since it had worked). I plugged the wires back into the horns, but still no a/c. (The freon is at the proper level.) The compressor does not appear to be working. Could there be a connection between the horns & A/C? Any suggestions?
