Roll center connector (your ribbon). Was it working when you bought the car?

Real quickly to make sure your horn is still working, run a 12v jumper wire from the battery to the horn and it should honk.

If it does, then most likely yman is right, it the connector between teh steering wheel and column.

horn doesn't work and air bag light is on, both go through the steering wheel, chances are that is the problem.

watch some videos on removing a subaru steering wheel or reading some instructions and taht will explain how it works if youve never seen one apart.

It's very easy, I can help if you are in the east valley. I'm currently about to replace my broken roll connector since I couldn't repair it, let me know if you need to swing by and use tools.
