IT'S IN YOUR STEERING COLUMN AT THE CONTROLS. MUST REMOVE STEERING WHEEL AND REPLACE THE BRASS FITTING BECAUSE IT'S EITHER BENT OR ? 2 HOURS PLUS PART @ ABOUT $40. GOOD LUCK!

Also check your wiring connections. Sometimes a loose terminal can wiggle and arc causing the horn to sound. Just troubleshooting.
