Horn doesn't work

(1990 Honda Civic)
The Horn doesn't work at all. There is no sound made, not even a clicking noise. The fuse descriptions don't mention the horn and everything else works (lights, blowers, etc.).

Here is a link to a web site that has repair instructions for your car, check in the electrical section, it is not free but it's very close to a Pro level manual. You need to check for power and ground at the horns while someone pushes the button. If you have power and ground, the horn element is defective, if you don't have power and ground, check the switch and trace from there. The underhood fuse panel fuse#5 powers up the horn.

dandd, thanks for the reply. I checked the steering wheel switch by checking continuity between the center hub and the contact plate and I have continuity with the horn switch pressed. Where is/are the horn(s)? And what is the easiest way to get to them? All the fuses in the main fuse box under the hood are good.
