Check the fuse and relay centre under the hood. Look for a relay marked "Horn". (The map should be on the fuse box lid.) Pull it out and exchange it with the A/C fuse ONLY if it is the same part number. Replace your fuse and try it. If this does'nt solve it you can get the car in gear by using the manual gear release located by the shifter nob. Just insert a spare key and pull selecter back. The automatic release solinoid must be on the same circuit as the horn.

The spring in the horn button probably broke. Removing the Fuse for the horn in the fuse panel will stop it. It will be marked either on the cover for the panel or on the panel itself. If your car has a steering wheel airbag, there is a danger of it going off during replacement of the button assembly. The button assembly usually is not designed to be repairable, but should not be too difficult or expensive to be replaced.

Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya!!
I have a 94 Kia sephia and had the same issue try unplugging the timing control box located above the fuse box my car runs perfect and doesn't try and make me look like I'm stealing it anymore. Sincerly Alex.
Well, in the front of the car, lower front bumper I mean where your lower vent grill are, there is this circle metaliic thing, probraly kinda rusted. That is the horn, and what you can do is disconnect the wiring harness there, if not, and you don't really need a horn anymore, you can just cut the wire.
You will need to replace that "stop horn" fuse since it also feeds power to the stop lamps and the gear shifter solenoid, when you step on the brake pedal. Your best bet is to unplug the horn on the vehicle(to stop it from honking) until you can get it fixed. That way, you will be able to shift out of park to get it to a shop for repairs.
hey, im not sure what your car is like but if you do not have an airbag steering wheel then you can just pull the horn pad straight off and replace it... see if that works but remember its illegal to not have a horn technicaly so its best to fix it quick
Sounds like wiring. The key won't release unless the car is in park. From what I can remember the solenoid that controls the shifter lock is on the same circuit as the horn. Since the fuse was spent I think somthing must be shorting out. Take the centre console out and check for burn and or touching wires by the shifter.
