I have a 2002 Lexis RX 300, every time I turn the key on to start the car the alarm start beeping. Is there a way to stop this. It beeps even turning the car off.

So I talked to someone who suggested my battery might be dead and that I try charging it, but as "Bullmtnbiker" mentions, the horn blasted as soon as I connected the negative terminal of the battery to charge. Finally, I just tried connecting it and running into the vehicle to start it, and that stopped the horn blasts immediately and it started and ran fine. I just hooked up to a trickle charge overnight to get the wounded battery back in shape.

Horn stopped working

Check your ground to the horn. The Horn itself might be bad. Take a battery and hook the ground and then the hot wire on the positive side. Horn should blow, if it does the same then, replace the horn. If it blows, then check relays and proper grounding

damaged wire maybe.
Locate the horn that blows and follow the wire back until you see the damaged area.

Should only be one power wire running to the horn.
Very strange that the fuse/relay didn't stop it from happening.

let me know what you find.
