Hello, my first thought is going to be a horn switch stuck, It is under the drivers airbag, I can not be 100% as not there but sounds like horns switch so,, you have 2 fuses for the horn, BOTH are in the under hood fuse box, You are looking for fuse M22 and M23 and both are 10 amp fuses, I would remove them so you can travel, Here is a diagram but little hard to see, They are located little towards the top in this picture ond to the right slightly or pretty close to center, You may have a label showing fuse M22 and M23 so remove both of them
