Default horn relay?

hi all, recently installed a new battery ( 3 plus years old) 3 months or so later i go out to a dead battery which the day prior when i drove it all was fine. i could hear a slight noise uner the hood. upon opening it i heard a noise faintly coming from my right horn i unplugged it and the noise stopped.
next i jump started the car, reconnected the horn
operated it, took the car for a spin perfect as usual
i got in my garage and decided i',d disconnect the battery overnight. as i remade slight contact with the

ground to battery i could see spark tellin me theres a draw. as im am on and off with the ground i can hear what sounds like a relay clicking up front by the d.s. head light . horn relay? just wondered if anyone had experienced the same.

The alarm can arm itself and be triggered when battery is reconnected or charged. It's part of the PKE.

Default relay?

ok is there anything up front driver side associated with the pke ? it came to mind because along with the sound of a relay clicking up by the front driver side, my interior lites were coming on like they would when the pke is operating correctly ( which mine randomly started working again.) its kinda intermittent at times.
i kept searching and discovered by removing the jumbo head light fuse the noise stopped ???
i re installed the fuse took it for a spin with the lights on came back and disconnected my battery and no noise. gonna keep my eye on it. I've done a bunch headlight motor gear rebuilds so no big deal if it happens to be the motor

The horn relay is under passenger side of dash. The condition is , IMO, something with UTD activating horn. The lighting fuse is 12v source for horn relay. There maybe a code in CCM. There is a horn in both fenders.
