I have a 2014 cvo softail and recently added an accessory

Customer Question
called a motoglo helmet light...
I have a 2014 cvo softail and recently added an accessory called a motoglo helmet light. It flashes the turn signals and brake lights and is attached using double-sided tape. I was riding to work and everything was working. I stopped to get a coffee and when I got back on thye bike, the turn signal lights starting flashing as if my emergency flashers were engaged. I managed to get the bike home and I had to disconnect the battery to make it stop. It sat for a couple of days until I got the chance to check it out. When I re-connected the battery, the horn continuously blares and I cannot get it to do anything. Can you tell me what it might be?
