Hi, I've come across a problem my horn just stopped working. I poped off the center button and the cable is connected. Then I checked the fuse and made shure it wasn't corroded. But when I used a volt meter to see if there is power to the fuse I got none. Could anybody help?[/img]

The steering rack assembly is supposed to make good ground. Strap an extra ground wire between/around shaft and chassis on the inside, underneath the dash that won't block your steering.

I'm working on the same problem, I cleaned off the contact points under the padded steering wheel cover and the contacts on the steering wheel itself. I pulled the steering wheel off the car and discovered that the copper ring on the steering wheel was greasy and not a clean connection, also the copper spring tab that connects to the copper ring was worn. I did not fix my horn yet, but I'am still digging. I have pictures of the steering and the connector, but I don't know how to post pictures on this site.

Make sure the horn works by giving it 12 volts....
