My 96 taurus GL's horn started blowing all by itself like if you were leaning on it. I had to disconnect the battery to stop it. Is it common on it this car? What could it be? Thanks.

I would say that it is not common on this car based on the fact that I have not seen a person ask for help on that issue yet.

Look in your owner's manual, and see if there is a horn relay. IF so and if you are lucky, it is stuck on. Its a simple pull out and replace.

Otherwise I'd suspect a problem in the steering wheel clock spring.

If you ahve cruise control and the buttons don't work that kinda points to the clock spring.

Thanks John, but this site is better or at least easier to navigate. IMO.

I checked and you do have an under the hood horn relay, instead of driving without a horn, why not pull the relay and test it? OR dry wherever your brother spilled liquid with a hair dryer?

If it was a sticky beverage and it was on the steering wheel, I do not believe drying it will help.
