Default 1998 Jetta / Horn Won't Stop Blowing / No crusie control

My 1998 Jetta has an intermitent problem with the horn. It will suddenly start to blow and will not stop. I removed the steering wheel and replaced the horn clock-spring assembly with a new assembly. Re-assembled the steering wheel and the horn started to blow again. I reoved the new part and replaced it with the old part. The horn stopped...was able to drive the car for a week then all of a sudden it bagan again. I'm stumped.

Unrealted to the horn problem is Crusie Control doesn't work in either of my 98 Jetta's. Whats gives!!!

No, it's not the alarm. It's the horn sounding continuosly as though you held your hand on the button. I had to pull the fuse so i can use the car.

the only thing i can think of is its a short in the alarm... from what i can remember the alarm and cruise modules are attached to each other... maybe one or both of them are causing a short?
