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 won't work


Did you pull the steering wheel off the shaft? If not, you won't be able to tell anything. Sounds like the cable going through has been worn through/broken. Likely wore through until it touched something, which set it "off" but still intact, then your tugging pulled it enough to completely break what little was still intact. Should be a very simple wire splice once the steering wheel is off (that's the hard part).

I have a 2000 ford escort coupe and the horn stopped working. I checked the fuse and it is blown. Put in a new fuse, the horn just makes a low screeching noise constant. There is an alarm on the car, but...

1996 Ford F250 Horn beeps when inmotion and I make a turn


That would be a sign of a bad clockspring under the steering wheel.

99 malibu horn honks shifting into D or R


wires from the horn run down the steering column and pass the area where the shift linkage is also in the column. its either a loose wire, or a chafted wire inside the column. Be VERY careful working on this if you have airbags. they must be disarmed before you work on the column.

My 1998 Toyota RAV4 horn stopped working after a hard honking.


Check the wires are connect to the horn properly and not worked loose, if they are ok then you need a new horn,
Hope this helps

Horn


my horn did the same thing - we disconnected the horn (which in an 02' is behind the passenger side headlight) I'm sure it's wearing out and we need to replace it.
