When I start the car and put it into drive the horn goes on, when I shut the car off the horn sounds! wont go off until I disconnect the battery


You could pull the horn fuse, that should kill it. The horn fuse is hot all the time. Two possibilities, one is security system, the other is problem with horn switch or wiring in the steering column.
The horn switch is ground for the control side of horn relay. Part of key fob security horn beep, is also a ground wire. In the diagram, you can see the two wires, The one for fob, take it loose, see if that stops the horn sounding by accident. Don't leave any live wires hanging loose, use electrical tape or something to insulate. I don't know if taking that one wire loose will cause any problems or not, I guess you can try it and see?
Of course, you still want the horn switch to work normally.

Horn not working on 96 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme


push on the horn button you should hear a click noise. is so then the circuit to the relay and the relay is good. then you find the horn and check for power to the horn with the horn button pushed. if you do then the horn is bad.

How do tell if the relay switch is bad


take a multimeter and check if your getting power to the relay and from it (when its supposed to be on). if no power to relay its the switch that activates relay or the wiring, if no power from relay when its supposed to be working, bad relay.

How do tell if the horn relay is bad or if the horn button is bad


Relays fail quite often and are easy to replace, while the button seldom fails and is much harder to repair. Start with fuses and relay.

How can I tell if the F/BLW Relay is bad?


Many of the relays in a car are exactly the same. Look for a similar one and swap the two, that will tell you if its good or bad.
