LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU GET THE ANSWER BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW WHA'TS WRONG WITH IT THANKS AGAIN,
Auto Mechanic: Pete, Technician replied 10 years ago
Hello again sorry for the long wait,if it was just your horn going off and not your exterior lights flashing this was the same as my coworkers car and he ended up replacing the horn relay in the underhood fuse box,it was just intermittently sticking on and causing his horn to go off.You can try this also you can remove a relay that has the same part number on it and swap them to see if your horn continues to go off if it doesnt then you would know for sure that this is what it is and then you can replace it.Thanks Pete
