The horn relay is stuck. The fuse box is right by the battery, remove the horn relay (it pulls straight out) and replace. The guide is in the lid. Removing the relay (or the 10A fuse, tool is also in the box) will stop the horn, but the relay's contacts are probably locked.
Sometimes just a little shock will dislodge the contacts that are locked together, but it's probably worth replacing with new.

the most common cause of this by far is lights left on by defective switchs, these include the map lights in the visors, the glove box light due to a defective switch, the trunk light and the hood light if equipped, check it at night and look for a faint glow, the other much less common cause is the alternator has a defective diode and allows a small current to pass to ground drawing the battery down..

Try lightly tapping the starter with a spanner and at the same time turning the key to start, if it starts you need the starter overhauled.

You should check your battery cables with an ohmmeter and see if they have any resistance,they should be at 0 ohms or just alittle over,but could possibly be the starter solenoid also.I had this same problem with my Toyota last year,hard starting sometimes needed a jump and then the alt went bad,turned out to be the solenoid was shorting intermittantly.Hope this helps.
