Yeah, never heard of that one! You proly have a ignition wire grounding/shorting out to the horn. Good thing is its all most likely in the steering column. At least that's where id start. If i remember correctly it takes some special tools to do the bearings in the steering column. I hand a buddy ,who worked for my local Ford dealer, do it one night. Good luck.
