I don’t think that will work. 12V is not present at the positive terminal of the horn until pin 85 is grounded on the relay. You could put a meter on the + of the horn and then ground the relay but it would probably take a helper.

I just did this. Take a test light and connect it to battery negative terminal. Turn the key. Slightly pull the horn relay and touch the probe tip to pin 85. Horn will (should) honk.

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy car parts which is kind of the same thing.
