The spiral cable can cause this, or it can cause the horn to stop working. The fact that the air bag light is on and the horn won't stop blowing really shows there is a short in the spiral cable.

I would pull the horn relay to prevent the battery from draining. This is located in the central junction box to the left of the steering wheel and should be labeled as such.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
