Question about 1991 Mazda 323
I sort of had this problem last year with my 1991 Protege (and may again when the weather gets cold). Your metal contacts in the horn compartment of your steering wheel are touching. They most likely melted a little in a heat wave and then with a sharp cold, probably an overnight chill, they contracted, causing them to touch. My horn tended to go off while I was driving, thanks to potholes and a high idle making my car vibrate while stopped at lights (very embarrassing!).
You may be able to bend the metal a little after you disassemble the steering wheel front (disconnect the battery first), but you will have to find where on the pad the foam has worn out. You can remedy the problem with your own pieces of foam stuck in where the metal is close together or can cut out a new foam pad with supplies from a craft store. Repair shops may charge close to $100 to replace this pad (it's glued on I think and wears away like an exposed seat cushion over time).
