Horn switch is located in the steering wheel if your horn button is not stuck in the pressed position than your switch is stuck if you have airbags in the vehicle and are not familar with working around them then it is best to pull htthe fuse for your horn and let a reputable mechanic fix the issue.

my horn quit working on my 99 wrangler...took it to a shop...the part they changed was called a clock switch...very expensive part but it fixed the problem...part was supposedly dealer only part...horn works great now
You have a bad "clockspring" inside the steering wheel. A bit complex to write it all out and if I forget anything the bag could deploy in your face while changing it out. You can find detailed instructions for that job in both chilton or haynes manuals.
Hello, I believe you may have a broken clock spring which is located in your steering wheel. Mine did this some time ago and I had it replaced. I am pretty skilled at repair work but I left this to the stealership/mechanic incase they accidentally deploy the airbag in the process of fixing it their money not mine. Good luck and let me know if I am correct or if I can offer any other help.
