Horn not working on my 1988

Recommended Posts

The first thing to check is whether or not you have power at the horn when the button is pressed. On my '88 Chief, I had power at both horns, but no sound. Removing the horns and cleaning up the ground contacts fixed it.

My horn quite working, this was the only way I could fix it.  There was no continuity to ground from the horn button down through the steering column.  I had to put the jumper ground wire over both of the U-joints, I only picture the lower one for ease of photo.  My best guess is the grease in the u-joints has dried and hardened to the point of being an insulator.  Now that I think about it, I should go buy new u-joints and get those old ones out of there...
