Default 98 steering colmb wire??? Horn or air bag??

Ok, so my horn has never worked and I found out my air bag light was removed from the cluster cus it was on. *
Well my shifter started giving me problems and found a thread on google search saying there are two screws that loosen up on the steering colmb...but didn't say where or have a pic...

So I took apart my dash in the search and found this wire hanging behind the steering wheel. *Anyone know where it goes or what it is? **

I'm guessing it's ether the horn or why the air bag light is on??*
It dose have power going to it.

The wire that you are questioning what it does is for the key in warning. There is a tang that holds it behind the ignition tumbler and will ding whenever the key is in the ignition. For the horn and the airbag to not work typically means you have a clock spring problem. The wire in question also is serviced with the clock spring. Would need to take the airbag off the steering wheel and ohm the wires through the clock spring. The bolts holding the shifter on, is a very common problem.

Strange thing, horn started working randomly.
Not sure if the air bag light is still on, tho when I turn the passenger air bag off the OFF light dose not come on.
