Default Vibration on accelerator pedal while using the horn

While I blow the horn(it's a Fiam Windtone) on my Baleno I could feel lot of vibrations coming from the accelerator pedal.But nothing on the brake pedal or the clutch.It's a after market horn that is installed using a relay and all.The same was initially installed in my Zen also but I never felt anything like that before.In the zen it was installed on the left strut beam and in the Baleno it's near the front bumper. What can be the issue ? Or is it actually normal?I'm bit scared thinking it may be some electrical issue.

Mods: I tried to search for this issue but couldn't find it.

Default troubleshooting tips...

Take it step-by-step:
1) Dis-connect a wire at the horn - operate and check your accelerator pedal.
2) Change physical location of the horn and see what happens.
3) with engine OFF, blow horn and see.
4) Check with engine idling, but car stationary.
etc..etc.. will lead you to the problem area.
BTW, is the throttle of your car 'electronically' operated or 'cable' operated?
