While driving the horn engaged (started blowing on its own). I removed the fuse to stop it. I re-inserted the fuse 3 more times to see if it would continue to blow - it did. I put the fuse back in a fourth time, it stopped blowing automatically, but won't work when you want it to. The fuse has not burned out. The horn just won't work now?
Do you

Unplug the horn and see if u have power and ground to the connector without pressing the horn button if u do its not the horn. If dont u could just have a shorted out horn turning itself on do u have a volt meter or blub test light if u do ill tell u how to check it and make sure whats bad and whats not. Let me know

Thank u for the reputation point I was asking u if u had power and ground to the horn without pressing the button because if u did that would mean that ur horn was the problem for staying on it would be the wiring or horn switch air bag coil but if u just had power and no ground to it then u would have a horn that's shorted out supplying it's own ground we are in the process of figuring if it's the horn or the wiring switch button air bag coil so check and let me know if u have power and ground or just power to the horn. Ur horn is under ur drivers headlight u can remove the headlight by taking out the 10mm bolts remove the headlight and u will see the horn connector. Let me know if u have power and ground or just power.

Sorry it took so long to get back to u iam trying to get ready to go back school and I only have a week left till I go so iam trying to get everything done. Ok do u have three wires going to ur horn?If u do u will have power all the time to terminal a. Ground all the time to terminal c and when u press the horn button u will have ground only when the button is pressed on terminal b that is ur horn trigger. If u have three wires going to ur horn and thats how it operates then ur horn is bad let me know what u find and if u have the three wires going to it.
