This is called limp mode chrysler did this to protect the transmission without leaving the owner stranded by the road,a few things will cause this mainly putting the wrong fluid in the transmission,they use only atf+4,or the govenor pressure sensor is acting up which should cause a check engine light to come on,or the transmission just needs a fluid and filter change,should be done every 2yrs or 36k miles,due the fluid and filter change about 40.00 but if you have the wrong fluid then the whole system needs to be flushed and refilled-transmission-torque convertor,radiator and cooler if equipped and all lines.

Think it's time to have it scanned & find out for sure, it will probably save you money in the long run if you have it checked now. Sometimes it's a simple as removing the wiring plugs and cleaning them thoroughly & re-installing them, but the longer you leave it, the more chance of worse damage.

SOURCE: 02 Jeep Liberty horn going off
Hi, there are two switches involved in actuating the horn: the horn relay which when closed will send current to the horn and the "clockspring" in the steering column that provides the connection to the steering wheel horn button, which when grounded activates the relay's switch. It is more likely that the clockspring has developed a direct short to ground due to a broken internal wire. There is one further wrinkle: the actuation of the relay is intermediated by the body controller which also needs to activate the horn as part of the anti-theft alarm system but if that where the cause it would probably also flash the park, tail, and headlights while the horn was falsely sounding. The most likely cause is the clockspring which you could assess by noticing if you can cause the horn to sound be repeated turning of the steering wheel to prompt the false grounding. Or when it blasts on its own accord turn the wheel slightly to see if that cuts off the horn.
If that doesn't reveal a fault you could try switching the horn relay with a similar relay such as the adjacent headlamp delay relay in the under dash fuse box (they are side by side) which if the horn stopped its issue and instead the headlamps came on for no good reason would tell you that the horn relay is spontaneously closing its switch and therefor needs to be replaced).
If neither approach is revelatory, then the body computer would be suspect. But verification would be in order due to the cost.
