Thanks. I tested all the of connection and had no continuity even when it was pulled all the way out. I took it apart and found that the wire was broke at the very end of the lighter coil. It appears there is a bakelite(maybe) insulator in the center of the lighter shell. Any idea how you get that out?

Thanks

I have used both AER in Lansing, MI and Ecourse auto electric in Romulus, MI.

Both shops do very good work.

Re: 1928 Horn Button -wiring issue

Per the wiring schematic the horn is always powered and by pushing the horn button it completes the circuit and makes the horn activate.

Horn is good as I can power it up and manually ground it and it wooorrrks loudly.

1928 Horn Button -wiring issue
#9
Home away from home
Home away from home

Gar
I have removed the horn button cover from my 1928 steering wheel. I see one wire I think goes to the bottom of the steering wheel shaft where the light switch steering gear cover is located.

I do not get any continuity between the horn button when depressed and the horn terminal (#9). (According to the manual, the horn button goes to ground and makes the horn activate)

How easy is it to replace the wire for the horn button?

Thanks,
Gar

How does it turn on? I would assume a switch somewhere? Maybe in the socket of the bake-light?
