Question about Ford Windstar
It sounds like the wiring between the horn button on the steering wheel and the dashboard is chafing. The insulation has been slowly rubbed off due to movement of the steering wheel. This is the only point between the moving parts (steering wheel) and non-moving parts (steering column). When the steering wheel is turned, the wiring contacts other metal and simulates the horn button being pressed.
It shouldn't be an expensive repair - but contacting your trusted local mechanic will remove any questions. If you do not have a regular mechanic, check with several to to make sure you're getting a fair cost estimate.
I hope this helps & good luck!

the 95 models did not have a vaccum modulator on them they were and electrronic transmission it is probably in the tranny itself.

There is a hood open switch on many after market alarms that can cause the condition you speak of.
Also there is a chance that the engine starter solenoid internal contact has failed for the start circuit. You can check this with a healthy screwdriver by shorting from the positive lead to the terminal. (YES It SPARKS!) If the starter engages then the solenoid is fine. If it does not then the the solenoid has failed.
Another thing that can cause what you speak of is the alarm motion sensor.
If you really want it fixed... like NOW go to any auto alarm installation shop, grab an install tech and take him to your driveway.... (with a borrowed car if need be) My bet is he will have you going in less than 15 mins and for a reasonable charge.

I would have the transmission range sensor checked at a dealer or other repair facility that has the proper scanner for checking this sensor
