Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. This is being caused by the covering on the air bag. It has become damaged by the sun and is swelling up under hot temperatures. This in turn puts pressure on the horn switch contacts and sets the horn off. The air bag/horn pad cover will need to be replaced, or if you cannot get that, then the air bag assembly will need to be replaced. You should be able to find one at the salvage /wrecking yard. Is this something you want to replace yourself? If so, please let me know and I will send you the procedure.
