Horn communication system is assembled incorrectly, causing the horn not to function correctly, loss of sound. Consumer states when the window is rolled down after a car wash or rain the water comes down freely on the inside of the car. Dealer advised that the horn is N the proximity of the air bag which keeps it from sounding and that was the way vehicle was designed and there was nothing they could do about it.
