The horn makes my engine bog down

I have a 1999 Chevy Tahoe. It has just begun to do something strange. While driving if I press the horn button for longer than a split second the engine bogs down like someone has stepped on the brakes. Anyone have an idea of what the problem miht be and how to fix it? I'm stumped!

my 2 cents

You either have a bad alternator or battery or both. Try this turn on all power consuming items like lights,blower for heater, rear window defog etc and see if it quits. If so check thise items if not post back.
It sounds like you have just enough elecrical power to keep the basic engine controls running.
