Default Horn blows on 2008 Hammer

Never had this in 18,000 miles. I' ve done this 100 times. Washed the bike yesterday, couldnt ride because of the weather, thought I would wash and wax every inch of the bike. Spent about 2 hrs doing this. I used a garden hose trying not to get water on controls and various other electrical locations. Wiped off the bike, then waxed & polished it. Getting ready to put back in garage, I started it and the horn started blowing. Turned key off, turn key on, horn blows again. I did this maybe 4 or 5 times, horn blew every time. Finally I started it and drove it in the garage with the horn blowing. Let it run maybe 3 mins., then it stopped. Im just thinking, what if it does this when Im riding it. Think maybe something got wet to cause this? What do you think?

It sounds like a drop of water is touching the two wires for the horn in the swtch housing I'll bet.
Open switch housing and spray in side with some we-40 or what ever you use.
Even check down by horn. Pull each wire and spray with wd-40 and put back and see what you come up with

If you have compressed air, just blow out the switch assembly.
