I think you would have to have the airbag removed to access the wire that comes up through. Sounds like it may be shorting somewhere.

If you do plan on doing this read here...

Unless someone else know a better way of checking this wire out. Due to back issues, I never really spent alot of time under my dash.

In the meantime go to the fuse box in your engine and pull the appropriate fuse for the horn it should only be 1 of them. That will keep the horn from going off at wee hours of the night till you can find a proper fix.
