You said you tested the voltage. When you took the cover off of the sterring wheel, did you remove the horn pad from the sterring wheel? There is a single wire that feeds to the pad, detach it and test for:
1) power 12volts or so
It is likely to be your horn pad. As it ages, especially in the hotter climates this will distort and warp. When you press the pad contact is not being made.
Try replacing with a used horn pad. Pay as little as possible. If this does not work you will not be out a lot of cash. New ones from retail stores/ dealership are not returnable because it is considered an electrical part.
