Re: Horn messed up?!

not unheard of
I would check the horn button it may be a clockspring issue and i would also check the horn relay probably start at the relay and save the wheel for last

the horns themselves are buried but you can get to the wires to disconnect near the pass battery IIRC

Re: Horn messed up?!

From jabbing the horn/steering wheel cushion with a clenched fist just to give a 'toot' for whatever reasons enough times, I had a similar thing happen.. But it was as I was going into a turn and spinning the wheel, not just inserting the key. I took it apart and a sliver of plastic wedged behind the contact disc or whatever it's called pushing it out and in touch with the other contact. I was pulling into a parking lot anyway and just quick popped the hood and ripped the wires behind the driver side headlight that feed the horn.

No, this was on my last Chevy, a '98.. They're on each side of the radiator on those buut the power comes from the drivers side then over to the second horn so kill driver side and pass side goes too

I mentioned that more as an example to suggest looking towards the clockspring / steering wheel for his culprit
