I'm having an issue that started yesterday. The horn started blowing constantly for several minutes, then stopped,while car was sitting in thee garage and no one was doing anything with it. A couple hours later,( while I was home this time) it did it again, I disconnected the battery then. I removed the horn relay, reconnected battery, and now the lights stay on all the time, (head and tail). Disconnected the horns, reconnected the horn relay, lights still stay on. I don't see anything obvious, bad wires etc. Car is usually in garage, driven on weekends for fun. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Does your car have a factory ACTIVE theft system? If so, think that the problem is that the car "thinks" it's being broken into. What can cause this? How about a bad door ajar switch.

It does. I'm just wondering, if it was that, wouldn't the horn blow like an alarm system, [honk honk honk], instead of a constant blow? And the lights don't flash, they just stay on. I'm baffled.
