A Honking Problem?

Author: Jay Bennett

Do you have one. I may have one solution to the situation whereby your horn seems to be stuck on, for it may be in the steering column horn wire. The simple solution is to remove the four small screws beneath the steering column that hold the cover on the ignition key lock.

Move the cover to the side and wrap the odometer trip reset cable with black electrical tape, wherever it appears to be exposed. It seems that the plastic tubing that insulates it becomes brittle in time and cracks off, causing it to ground the wire coming from the horn button.

This has happened to both my Jensens, and the solution worked in both instances.
