If by end result you mean abject failure.

Actually, if installed the other way, I'd think the Bell might have turned on (rather than the Horn).  That is, a Uni-directional TVS will clamp at 1-diode drop or, say, 1 Volt on each half-cycle.  I believe this is what created the DC offset as seen by the engine - thereby triggering the Horn.  Of course, this would generate massive current, heat, and rapid component failure. 

So, yes, same end result but I was curious about the intermediate result.
