It totally depends what is wrong with either circuit. Check for power at the horn when the horn button is pressed if its got power the horn is bad if does not have power, check the fuse and that the horn switch grounds when pressed. A garage would charge an hour labor diagnostic charge to investigate they may need all or only part of that time to locate the problem. Is the check engine Light on and does the cruise control work? If the light is off and the cruise control works he the vehicle speed sensor on the gear box works and the problem is likely to be in the instrument cluster.
