Steering wheel horn disconnected on R 600...

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get the steering wheel horn in my 80 R 611 ST working. It looks like it's been disconnected as there is a black wire with a push in end hanging out of the steering column (see picture). I checked under the dash for the other end of a wire that might have been connected to it but there are no loose wires. I checked the horns by running a wire from them to the battery and they work. I followed the horn wires all the way to the horn relay in the glove box and there are no breaks. Any ideas where this wire from the steering column should be connected to ? What would happen if I connected it to an empty terminal of a power block under the hood ? post-12926-0-80535700-1440995573_thumb.j

Look at the connector for the turn signal switch, If memory serves me that's where the wire from the horn contact

plugs into.

If it doesn't have a spot for it then the switch was probably replaced with a plain Signal Stat switch without the OEM connector

The wire eventually goes to the ground side of the horn relay to close the relay and blow the horn.

Just run a wire through the dash to the relay.

Thanks, Ron. I finally got some time and disovered that a strange looking unlabeled button on the dash works the city horn. Someone must have reconnected it when the steering wheel button failed a long time ago.
