I'll list everything that the drivers headlight harness encompasses.

Low beam
High beam
Turn signal
Fog light
Horn
Ambient temperature sensor
Horn
Coolant level sensor (90% on this)

Check all of these, figure out what doesn't have wires.

You have two horns inside the front bumper aluminum support, one on each side. Your certain the drivers side is wired still?

I'm racking my brain, but if the temp sensor and fog light wires are cut, the wiring for the horn runs down along with those other two groups of wires.

Just to the outside of the bumper shock, I do believe. One on either side.

Damn. There is two horns? I unplugged one thinking that was my ambient temp pig tail plugged into the wrong spot
