Horn Button Wiring Question
 
Hey everyone! Have a quick question about how the horn button is supposed to be wired up on my '90 GW. I couldn't find any photos to reference online.

The horn in my GW hasn't worked since I got it. Spent some time yesterday testing the horns and the relay and the all work. Eventually traced the problem back to the button on the steering wheel. It has the ground lead all set up but there is another terminal on the horn that had nothing connected to it. Used my test light to figure out that there is a contact inside of the broken white piece circled in the picture that is getting 12V with the key on. Stuck a piece of jumper wire in there and connected it to the horn button and boom, there's my problem.

Now the problem is, I can't see how to permanently connect a wire to that circled area and was hoping for pics of an in-tact one to see how it is supposed to be connected.

Thanks in advance!

Your pin is broken off. There is a pin that goes into that plastic housing. You need to remove the plate on top of the column. There are write ups on how to do that. Then you remove a plastic plate under it, where the pin should be, and replace it with a new one that is complete. You can find the part on Ebay or at the parts store. You will need a couple of specialty tools. Check out YouTube for a video on "how to" and you will be set.

I just removed my steering wheel and the same wire is completely missing. I am curious how your repair went and if you found the how to articles and videos. Thanks

I haven't gotten to it yet. I have the part, it just hasn't been high on my to-do list.

Reviving an old thread! I finally got around to replacing the turn signal cancelling cam today but I am still missing the wire that inserts into it. Does anybody know where I can find one that works? Or knows what I need to make one? Or at least a photo of what it's supposed to look like? haha. I don't even know what to call that wire to search for it.

Thanks!
