Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer
All of a sudden my horn sounds off and won't stop 'til I disconnect the battery. After several hours I started the car and all is well. Then as I was drying my car the horn went off again so I disconnected the battery to stop the horn. What's going on?
Sounds like there's a short in your wiring in the steering column, A lot of times with a tilt wheel a wire get loose or gets a short in it. the steering wheel may have to come off to fix the problem but make sure to disconnect the airbag first, I'm not sure what vehicle you have so I don't know where to tell you to look for the connection, may be best to take to a dealership if possible. Hope this helps.

Horn pad contact has short wire grounding causing horn blow when you turn steering wheel.

SOURCE: horn wont go off
take the cover off the center of the center of the steering wheel and disconnect the black wire that runs to the cover be careful with air bag while your doing this

make sure the connections are tight and secure at the battery.other than that u need to get the immobiliser programmed as it appears to be cutting the starter.incidentaly with most cars you are supposed to use a back up power supply when changing battery as computers on car can loose their memory including the immobilser.

this problem is caused by a warped airbag cover, u must replace the airbag.
