I have checked the archives and see a lot of queries regarding Horn Buttons but nothing about the operation.
I am not able to get the horn (switch) to work. I have checked all my wiring and have eliminated every thing except the switch..
When I take the wire running up the steering column to the switch and manually ground it, my horn work fine. when I take an ohm meter and check the centre connector of the switch and touch the brass ring in the head of the switch I get a dead short with the button at rest or pushed in. Am I wrong in assuming that when the button is pushed in the brass ring hits the steering wheel nut which would short to ground causing the horn to sound.
I have a spare horn button and neither one causes the horn to sound when pushed. Are these buttons just worn out or I missing something?
It appears that something in the switch is not making contact???
I would appreciate any suggestions. Mounting a external horn switch is an option but not one I want to do.
