Re: [DML] Picture/Dwg of dash side of horn switch cluster needed



Nick,

There are two wires that go into the horn stalk, one
is purple (the hot lead) and the other is purple/black
which carries the voltage out to the horns when you
push the stalk.  If one of yours is broken, then you
will have to remove the steering wheel and remove the
"combination switch".  Once you have the "combination
switch" off, you can remove the turn signal, dip, and
horn switch portion and go in and try to repair the
wire.

A word of CAUTION---------when you remove the two
small hex screws that are holding the turn signal,
dip, and horn switch to the metal plate, BE VERY,
VERY, CAREFUL------there are several ball bearings
underneath the metal plate that are spring loaded and
they will fly out into the 'nether world' if jolted or
even bumped, never to be found in your lifetime.

Now, to answer your other question, yes, you can
install a push button (similar to a door bell button)
and make the horns work.  When you push on the stalk
to blow the horns, all you are doing is connecting the
purple wire to the purple/black wire.  All you need to
do is connect those two wires to a button somewhere
convenient and you'll be in business.

Lastly, if you want to check to make sure the horns
are working before you start tearing everything apart,
just disconnect the connector that comes down from the
switch and using a small jumper, connect the purple
and purple/black utilizing the side with the female
pins.  Your horns should work as soon as you touch the
two points together.

Let me know if this helps or if I can be of any help. 
I've got my switch sitting here by the computer.
