I have a problem with my car at night during cold seasons. The car horn goes off in the middle of the night whenever it's cold and winding. I tried to first hit the steeling wheel where the horn is and it stops, but after about 20-30 minutes it starts again. It continuely blows until I hit the wheel again. I ended up taking out the Horn Relay fuse in order to get some sleep.
Thank you for any help in this matter.

Hi Al,

Problem seems to be caused by the horn buttons. You would need to remove the horn pad to check the horn pad contacts. There is a possibility the spring is weak causing the contacts to be very near each other and the weather is causing some shrinkage somewhere to push the contacts to touch each other resulting in the horns going off.
