If the alarm makes the horn work, then it is not the relay.
It is the horn contact or slip ring.
You need to take the cover off the steering wheel center.
But this could be dangerous due to air bags.
Disconnect battery first.
Steering wheel might have to come off.
Recommend a shop because most people don't have the tools for pulling steering wheel.

My 2005 Lincoln LS V8 horn starts blowint when I start the car and won't stop until I remove the key.

I'd say, a direct short to the Ignition "on" circuit, or bad connection, or possible relay or bad horn switch. If you "bang" on the horn, it may loosen the contact that is sticking. For tempory solution, disconnect the horn, Tape the end so it doesn't short, and drive carefully so you don't need the horn, until you can sort out the problem. Could be a horn relay with welded contact points. Solution being replacing the relay. Follow horn wire back toward firewall. You may run into the relay, or if it goes through the fire wall the relay may be under the dasy. Time for repair manual with electrical. Parts store may have, or MFG customer service, or if they have it, or
You seem to be DIY oriented, so you may need it later anyway.

If the alarm light is blinking, then the issue could be with the vehicle immobilizer or key. The key may need rematching to the vehicle's ECU, which will need reprograming by the manufacturer service centre.

My horn is not working. It went from working

Have the horn relay either tested or replaced. Intrermitant then fail indicates this may very well be the problem. Disconnect the horn itself and have someone press horn button. Listen for clicking of relay. If clicking,locate the rrelay. . If no vlivkicking, ther is your problem. Now to locate the relay. Should be under the hood on firewall. Good Luck

Horn on my 2002 Linclon Ls stopped working

easiest way to check a relay is to swap it with an identical, known good relay. look at the part number on the horn relay, find a matching one in the fusebox (maybe A/C compressor or low beam). if it still doesn't work, have someone press horn while you touch the relay. you should feel it click if it is activating. if it clicks, the switch is good. if not, the switch is not sending power to activate relay

Horn just stop blowing,won't blow

When you press on the horn button do you hear the horn relay click? The start at the horn, bench test it, if it works then check for power, is the fuse good and is the relay ok. If the stuff checks out then it may be the horn contacts behind the steering wheel.

2002 Lincoln LS horn wont work.

the problem is your clock spring. it is not that hard to change but remember to disconnect your battery and let the vehicle sit twenty minutes. there are two screws on the side of your steering wheel. take them out then you will have the chance to release the airbag connector. once you get it disconnected there are a few panels on the lowere steering column under the dash that needs to be disconnected. the last thing will be your steering wheel bolt. it is a star socket. all together it will take you less than an hour. part cost me $138. after that my horn and my cruise control worked as advertised.
