SOURCE: horn electrics
You have a shorted clockspring, or horn contact reel if you prefer. It is located under the horn pad in the steering wheel and is either a coiled up flat wire or some kind of rotary contact.
Where the steering wheel can be turned several turns, there is no way a normal wire could be used for the horn button, so they use either form of rotary contact.
They are prone to failure, airbags use the same system (airbag computers will detect this and shut the system off so accidental deployment is impossible).
You can take the horn pad off (usually there are a couple of screws holding it in from the bottom of the steering wheel, or sometimes if there are no screws, the horn pad is clipped in and you need to gently pry it off. After you remove the horn pad, you should be able to get a good idea on what's going on...)
If it is a clockspring, it is probably shorted and cannot really be repaired. It must be replaced. If it is some kind of other system, repairs might be possible depending on the setup.

1. Open glove box
2. Unhook elastic retainer on right side
3. Locate the two "stop tabs", one on the upper left and the other on the right side. Push both to the left to clear their stops and the glove box will swing down, allowing access to the filter cover.

I've had experience with two of these cars now. The mounting positions where the steering rack bolts to the fire wall rust away leaving the rack floating. Usually long before the rack starts to float the car leaks . Water starts to come in where the firewall rusted out. Its dangerous and should not be driven like this.

The firing order is 1-8-7-3-6-5-4-2 and the #1 cylinder is located at the left front of the engine and the spark plug and ignition coil for the #1 cylinder will be the first ignition coil and spark plug on the front of the left side of the engine on top of the valve cover, and to remove an ignition coil dis-connect the wire connector to the ignition coil, then remove the bolt securing the ignition coil (usually this is one 10 mm bolt) and give the ignition coil a twist as you pull it straight up and out of the spark plug well, and if you are removing the spark plug then use a socket with an extension and swivel to loosen up and tighten the spark plug, but use about a 6 inch length of 3/8 inch fuel line pushed onto the spark plug to actually remove the old spark plug and also to start the new spark plug down inside of the spark plug well to reduce the possibility of cross-threading or damaging the threads for the spark plug. Here are some images to assist you and the ignition coil location image shows the right side of the engine for reference, with cylinders 2-4-6-8 and this was just the best image that I could find to make that diagram, however they are laid out the same on the left side of the engine 1-3-5-7, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Get an allignment. Some kind of way it is out of whack and its not the safest situation. Take it in to an allignment specialist and they can straighten the wheel. Good Luck
