55 Buick Horn wiring problem

Recommended Posts

Thanks Brian, The slipring is still in good shape. I found it in the glove box. I now have to connect it to the wire that is hanging in the shaft. Someone cut it at some point. Also, after further inspection, looks like the gasket under the brass slipring is in good shape too, so I have to take the wheel off and reassemble once I get the new relay.

Have you removed the plate at the bottom of the column and inspected the steering shaft to see if it has a brass slipring on it? The steering column has to be removed to replace it; NOT AN EASY JOB. You may have to add a short extension to the wire if it was cut, or solder in a complete new wire.
