Well, I hit my horn a little harder than I should have and long story short the horn would not shut off so I took out the fuse and everythings been fine since then.

 

But now I dont have a horn or hazard lights, but one thing I do have is a 5 month expiered inspection sticker!

 

I'm thinking about bringing da sub to the dealership and pay what I must to get it fixed, but if Its something simple I wouldn't mind trying!

What is the car? If you can remove the top portion of the steering wheel, there is a thin piece of metal in there that is now making contact all the time. If you can straighten things out, you may be able to fix it.

definitely check into disabling the airbag and or disconnecting the battery before digging in there.

Look on the back side of the wheel at ~3 and 9 o'clock, there will be two screw holes. Remove the screws and the center section will pull straight out. Disconnect the wire plugs and you can set it off to the side.

Those screws are torx. T25 or T27 IIRC.
