First thing I would look for is a grounding-out wire in the steering column that may be contacting ground activating the horn relay and causing the horn to sound. If all the wires in there look OK next I would suspect either the horn switch in the steering wheel or, in order of difficulty, possibly the steering column's "clock spring harness" may need replacing. The clock spring harness is the electrical contact unit at the end of the steering column that allows all the electrical controls on the steering wheel to remain electronically connected to the car while you are turning the wheel, lock to lock. To check it you will likely need to remove the steering wheel from the steering column which will likely also involve removing the airbag. MAKE SURE THE CAR BATTERY IS TOTALLY AND ABSOLUTELY DISCONNECTED FOR A GOOD WHILE before ever doing any work around an air bag or any of it's sensors. There are lots of videos on-line showing what's involved in doing projects like this. You can check some out here for greater detail. https://www.google.com/search?q=2002+lancer+CLOCK+SPRING+HARNESS&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=ubuntu&channel=fs&gws_rd=ssl

Horn honks when try to start


honking horn is indicative of damage to the alarm and immobiliser. The 'only starts with headlights on' is indicative of damaged wiring at the front end caused by the deer. Look for disconnected wires, or wires where the insulation has been stripped away and is earthing to the bodywork.

Horn honks when turning, randomly


sounds like a electrical problem. When you turn it is completing the circuit some how, sounds like wires are touching each other and making the horn honk when turning. easiest thing is remove the fuse if possible.

2004 yukon horn problem


obviously there is a short in the system probably in the wiring and likely it is exposed wiring. Motion,moisture, and heat would then effect the wiring and cause it too short out at different times and for varied lengths of times. driving your car would cause it to get hot under the hood, so after awhile the wiring shorts and your horn honks. Turning on and off the system causes motion and if it is stuck in a particular position when it shorts than the horn continues to honk

The alarm horn and the normal horn are not the same unit. Seems like your normal horn is bad.
