Horn quit working after wreck

I washed out the front end and landed on the left handlebar. Since that time the horn (Nautilus Steble) no longer works.

I have done the following tests.

13.3 Volts on the hot side of the relay
0.0 volts when horn button not pushed
0.06 volts momentary when horn button pushed. ~2-3 seconds and gone
oo Ohms resistance through the wires going to the horn
hitting the horn button does not change the "open" that I am seeing.

I do not hear a relay click when I hit the horn button. I am thinking that a buggered up the horn button in the crash. Any logical thoughts?

The cable somewhere in the line might have been ruptured.

Run a hot wire from the battery and touch the horn button contact to the relay. If the horn blows then it is the horn button. If the relay clicks and it doesn't blow then it is probably the horn. If it doesn't click and horn doesn't blow it is probably the relay. Relay's die easy.
