eBay for 1977 Motor's Repair Manual and hope the steering gear section has a picture of yours in it. Copy the same section from the local library if you are lucky enough to have one with those on the shelves. You won't find specific info for your exact setup, just general guidlines to go by as that's all that's really needed by most mechanics. Powersteering or armstrong?

SOURCE: steer wheel assembly

Hello Kimkaye.
There are three bolts that have come loose and will need to be tightened.
Some special tools will be needed to disassemble in order to access these bolts.
I would recommend a professional to do this job for you as there are many parts and pieces to contend with in this job along with the supplemental restraint system (airbag).

The horn will not work on my 96 mercury grand marquis. The horn makes a sound when locking the door with the remote keys, but it will not work when pushing on the steering wheel. I've checked both...


Your horn contact in the steering assembly probably uses what is called a 'slip-ring' type contact and the 'ring' which is part of the steering wheel itself may be contaminated or the stationary contact, which uses low-pressure spring material, is either worn or the spring has grown weak. You will have to gain access to the inside of the steering wheel center section to check this.
Also, unless you have actually electrically tested the horn relay, I would check for a relay with the same part number (should be stamped into the case) and temporarily swap them. Your security system may employ a separate relay to sound the horn when locking or unlocking.

Your problem is most likely a defective clockspring assembly. This is also called "spiral cable assembly" it is located just under the steering wheel on the steering column and makes the connection between the main wiring harness and the circuits for the air bag and the horn. I cannot give you wire colors because your question did not mention year, make, model, engine size or whether the vehicle is equipped with cruise control or not. (cruise control makes a difference in the clockspring assembly used on your car.)

Anyway, the air bag and steering wheel has to be removed to fix it.

Horn does not work on a 1993 cutlass ciera


Try to find the horn and use a test light to try to ground out one or the other contacts. The horn should be energized at all times, as long as the battery is charged.

The horn should sound if you ground out one or the other terminal with a test light. If not, then the horn is bad.

Also, one can check the button at the steering wheel. If one uses a test light to ground out the switch there, the horn should sound.

See fig. 3 for wire for horn in steering wheel:

How to replace key ignition


I don't think your vehicle has an airbag system, but please be certain if it has I would refer you to a manual for the proceedure to discharge SRS system before you start. Some local libraries have manuals that they will let you look at and photo copy. You will need a good quality steering wheel puller, and snap ring pliers and a tool to remove the locking ring retainer and to reinstall it. All you need to do is pull the horn ring (look at the back of the steering wheel) remove the screws that hold horn pad on. Next loosen the steering wheel nut do not remove at this time this is left on to prevent you from getting a steering wheel in the teeth when it pops loose, (possibly). Next check to see the locater marks on the column shaft and the wheel note position and mark if necessary. Do not use a hammer to pound on shaft of column it WILL damage the shaft! Use steering wheel puller tool to remove wheel. Next use the lock plate removal tool to depress and release pressure on retaining clip holding plate on remove plate. You may have to pull turn signal switch out of the way by removing the handle and retaining screws. Now you will see a plastic clip that holds two brass comtacts carefully move the top plastic release clip down to release and remove small contact assembly. You should be able to see a square notch in front of the mechanical key lock mechanism. With battery disconnected move cylinder to on position and slide out assembly. Slide new assembly in place and try back to lock position and remove key. Reverse order to assemble.

I'd say $125.00 is a good price for a steering column.

First, have to remove steering wheel (but I don't have instructions for the steering column. For that, maybe try alldata.com, but that will cost):

Fig. 8: Correct steering wheel installation 84928058.gif
NOTE: The factory recommends that the front wheels be set in the straight-ahead position and you paint or make chalk marks on the column and steering wheel hub for alignment purposes during installation. Of these two safeguards, it is more important to mark the column so even if the column is moved slightly, the steering wheel can still be repositioned in its original position.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the one screw from the underside of each steering wheel spoke, and lift the horn switch assembly (steering wheel pad) from the steering wheel. On vehicles equipped with the sport steering wheel option, pry the button cover off with a suitable prytool.
  3. Disconnect the horn switch wires at the connector and remove the switch assembly. On trucks equipped with speed control, squeeze the J-clip ground wire terminal firmly and pull it out of the hole in the steering wheel. Don't pull the wire out without squeezing the clip.
  4. Remove the horn switch assembly.
  5. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut and remove the steering wheel with a puller. WARNING
    Never hammer on the wheel or shaft to remove it! Never use a knock-off type puller.
  6. Install the steering wheel in the reverse order of removal. Tighten the shaft nut to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm)

With Air Bag Fig. 9: Remove the air bag module and disconnect the wiring harnesses 88288g00.gif
CAUTION
Read the air bag service precautions in Section 6 prior to doing work involving an air bag equipped steering column component. Always wear safety glasses when servicing an air bag vehicle and handling the air bag to avoid possible injury.
  1. Turn the front wheels to the straight-ahead position.
  2. Disconnect the battery-to-starter relay cable for at least one minute to let the air bag back-up power supply discharge.
  3. Remove the air bag module from the steering wheel (refer to Section 6).
  4. Disconnect the horn/speed control wiring from the steering wheel.
  5. Remove the steering wheel retaining bolt.
  6. Install the Differential Bearing Cone Remover/Replacer, No. T77F-4220B1, or equivalent, and remove the steering wheel. Route the contact assembly harnesses through the steering wheel as it is lifted off of the shaft. To install: NOTE: Make sure the front wheels are still in the straight-ahead position prior to installation.
  7. Route the air bag sliding contact wiring through the steering wheel at the 3 o'clock position. Position the steering wheel on the shaft an align the marks. Make sure not to pinch the contact wire. WARNING
    Make sure no air gets trapped between the steering wheel and air bag sliding contact.
  8. Install a new steering wheel retaining bolt, then tighten to 23-33 ft. lbs. (31-45 Nm).
  9. Connect the horn/speed control wiring and clip in place. Connect the air bag wire harness. Tighten the module retaining nuts to 35-53 inch lbs. (4-6 Nm). NOTE: When the battery cable has been disconnected, then reconnected, some abnormal driving symptoms may occur for the first 10 miles (16 km) until the PCM re-learns it adaptive strategy.
  10. Connect the battery to starter cable. Verify the air bag warning indicator light on the instrument panel.

Horn rings intermittanl while driving


Inside the components of the steering assembly and shaft they have put contacts that touch a ring as the wheel is turned enabling current to flow thru while not having wires to worry about breaking internally from constant back forth motoin of the wheel. It is conceivable that a component in this assembly has broken, especially if the horn blows when you turn the wheel versus driving straight and the horn does not blow. This would be the place to start if i was diagnosing this vehicle. Special tools are needed to remove the steering wheel assembly so if you are unsure of what you r doing have an experienced technician repair this problem.

Repair horn assy how do you remove the assy


Are you speaking of the horn? Or the horn relay? Or the horn button? Or the horn button split ring armature? To remove the horn assembly in the steering wheel you will need a steering wheel puller and a U shaped clamp that will screw down to the steering bolt you will need a 3/4 socket with a 3-inch extension and a ratchet. You will also need to picks to pull center snap ring off to get to the parts under the plate for the horn. To remove you will need to buy 2 security nuts tork wrenches #8 I believe, you will have to disconnect the battery before working on it as the bag could explode if you do not have the battery disconnected. After removing the positive side of battery cable wait 5 minutes before proceeding. Then remove the two bolts that hold the front horn assembly and air bag from the rear of the steering wheel next remove horn air bag assembly and disconnect the wire for the air bag. Place horn to the side then remove the 3/4 bolt out from the center, next install steering wheel puller on the steering wheel and put in three bolts and tighten them evenly so that the puller is on straight. Screw center bolt into the steering bolt until the wheel comes loose, remove steering wheel and place it at the side, next use the U shaped clamp to press the center plate down 1/4 inch to be able to clear the snap ring around the steering wheel. With one pick hold the ring in place with the other force it between the steering wheel bolt and work the ring up and out of the grove it sits in. Next work it all the way up till you have it in your hand, and do not lose. Now pull plastic plate off if you put the wheels straight then it will go on the same way you pulled it off because it's keyed mark it with a felt tip pen so you don’t have to hassle with keying it in again. Next remove the plate and there you will find the horn contacts and the round disk that the connectors push against, so if you need more info just ask on this post.
