Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
Horn honking when the car is turned off
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
