Horn problems.

I have a 68 Malibu with a wood steering wheel. I installed the wheel myself about a year ago and connected the horn etc. Everything worked fine up until about a week ago.

I noticed my right blinker not working at all. So I took apart the column (up to the turn signal cam), and cleaned all the contacts. The blinkers work fine now.

Only problem is that I can't get my horn to function properly.

After I got the wiring through, (inserted the spring and plunget, etc.) and before I get it connected to the cardboard piece (the piece that contacts the steering column when the button is pressed to complete the circuit), the horn sounds and won't stop.

Nothing is connected (that I can see) to complete the circuit. It's not grounded anywhere that I can tell.

Right now I'm driving with no horn, and I don't like that.

Someone please help.

I'll try that...

But it doesn't start sounding until the wire is slightly jiggled.

Ok, I have to feed it through a big metal biece that slides over the gears of the steering wheel column. That's what the steering wheel screws into.

Could it be contacting in there somewhere?

Because it doesn't sound untill it's fed through there.

What's the best way to wire up a horn anyway?

It's a PITA to put that spring in and all.
