It just rained here in Texas and I had my top off. I put my jeep in the garage in order to dry it out. I had a couple fans blowing at it to speed up the process.

While I was in the house waiting, (this is the weird part) my horn started to sound! It wasn't like someone hit the panic button; it was like a single "beeeeep" that lasted close to 25 seconds. It paused for about 2, then proceeded to do it again.

To stop it, I tried to turn on the jeep in order to "jump the circuit" but that didn't work. There wasn't even a pause in the sound. It didn't stop until after I unlatched the hood.

All comes to say, my horn doesn't work now. What just happened? Any input is valued!

Yep, and your lucky that's the only thing that happened.
It's usually not the clock spring that breaks. It's a pain to change but it's not a terribly expensive part

So what needs to be done? To I just need to let everything dry up nice and crisp and then address it later?
