If you have an aftermarket burgler alarm in it i would check wiring where it was installed. If not it is probably a malfunction in the contacts in the steering wheel. If checking the steering wheel unhook the battery and let it sit for a few minutes. It is always good to do this so the air bag will not deploy.thanks
you have either a blown fuse or the factory wire harness isnt connected to horn first check fuse owners manual will have location and description of fuses if ok retrace your steps when you hooked horn to new alarm you disconnected wire at horn or you cut the wire to access horn wiring
hope this helps plz vote leave a comment if need more help reply
Check the horn actuating contact at the centre of the steering wheel. It may be damaged or mis-aligned.
Also check the carbon contact that runs on the slip ring under the steering wheel (associated with steering wheel horn actuate switch) It may be damaged or mis-aligned.
If none of the above are faulty, you should look for a possible intermittent short to ground on the horn actuation control wiring.
sounds like the horn contact terminal inside the steering wheel got disconnected and is hitting a metal part of the steering column which triggers the horn. the terminal that got disconnected is probably has positive polarity and the metal part of the steering column has negative polarity. If they come in contact with each other... *honk* *honk*
It sounds like you have a short circuit in the steering wheel horn pad. You can have someone unplug your horn until you can have it fixed. That is if you don't need your horn. This is a totally temperary fix. Because of the airbag in the steering wheel, you should bring it to a qualified mechanic. Sorry
