Question about 2001 Dodge Durango
The horn has power all of the time but does not go off untill it is grounded. The switch in the steering wheel is the ground when you press it completing the circuit and sounding the horn. The alarm does not use the steering column or steering wheel ground path to "beep" the horn, it uses its own ground. The problem then will more than likely be in the steering column, steering wheel switches, or clock-spring. The clock spring is not for the clock. It is a spiral-wound wire set that allows the steering wheel to turn and not bind up the wires going into the steering wheel. It is called a clock-spring due to the "spiral" wound design of the connector. The horn ground wire in the steering wheel gets its connection through this clock-spring, so it may the source of your problem. It would require some electrical diagnostics to verify the actual point of failure.
