    Intermitant short. Power wire occisionally chafs against ground wire, or to ground. Other possibility is horn is wonky, contacts aren't working and drawing too much causing fuse to blow. Also, does it have the correct rated fuse in there for that circuit?

    Disconnect the horns and lay on the button a few times to see if it still pops the fuse. That'll tell you right away if you have a wiring issue, or just a shorted out horn.
