Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My battery died a few times as i was goin down th road so i took th
alternator & got it checked & it was bad so had my buddy put a new 1 on 4
me.

Prob solved right??? Nope!!!

th other day, i hadta honk at a peep tht wuldnt go after th lite turned green.
I tapped th horn...then tapped it again...& it kept honking.....i hit th horn with
th side of my fist & it quit.

Tht nite bout midnite.....according 2 my neighbor (i took my sleepin pills &
was out...so i didnt hear it) th horn jst started blaring....after several minits it
quit.

Th next day i noticed th cruise & th horn didnt work. AND TH BATTERY
WONT HOLD A CHARGE.

Any ideas???

Maybe the horn button is making contact when it should not. Perhaps things are gunked up or the spring is weak.
