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



What I'm hoping to do is repair the bad wire without removing the rack
completely or removing the steering wheel.  If I can repair it without
pulling through the bushing I'd be delighted.  Thus I was hoping that there
may be a photo or drawing to get a hint of what it looks like.  If it gets
too tight I may be doing by mirror.

The power wire to the switch is soldered to a point is not a connector...
correct?

Thanks for the warning about disassembly.

  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.
