AE horn short

My horn goes off whenever it feels like it. Stays on long and loud. The only way I can shut it off is to pull the fuse. There must be a short somewhere but I have a hard time finding it. The horn switch itself is mentioned. Located in the steering wheel? Could someone shed some light on this as I am having a hard time identifying it. Thank you!

it might be something to do with your security alarm system... perhaps. when that thing goes off, the horn sound along with the lights flashing and the ignition disabling. the best thing to do is go through the factory service manual and read up on the horn system. should show you a way to troubleshoot. you can find the FSM here: www.xenonzcar.com

you can remove the center steering pad and check out the connections behind there.

AE horn short

Thank you! I have tried most everything you have suggested. Lights do not flash but security system does not allow me to start car unless I pull the fuse. Have checked all security latches/sensors. Have checked out the steering wheel and components. Will try the FSM. Thank you.
