It's the bladder/switch inside the steering wheel behind the air bag that is old and it causes a contact, so your horn honks. To fix it you have to pull the steering wheel and replace the bladder/switch.

Actually you do NOT have to pull the steering wheel to replace the membrane.

Here's a link to a thread that addresses the replacement of the membrane.


Replacement membranes are available from Ecklers and I think Mid America.
