Default horn blowing by itself

The other day i was sitting in the house and heard a horn blowing so i got up to see who was at my house blowing the horn and to my suprise it was my truck setting there all by itself horn blowing like crazy, i grabbed my key fob and hit the panic button and nothing happened so i unlocked and it quit. I have nothi.g done to my truck other than a diablosport trinity. Has this happened to anyone else? The only thing i can figure is that it had rained for two days staight and i traveled about a hundred miles in it and maybe some water fiund its way into the electrical plug for the horn.

sounds to me like you have a short in your wires to the horn...follow the wires back from the horn and verify the plug has no water in it contacting the contacts. as well s=give a shake to the wires seeing if you can set it off...sure sounds like a wire short though.

Sounds to me your truck is lonely and is calling out for you to come have fun

Do you have a factory alarm on the truck, if it was a short in the horn wiring, why would it stop when you unlocked the truck. Maybe something triggered the alarm, yes could be water coming in somewhere, did you check if your head liner in the rear corners of the back are wet?
