It sounds like the wires are pinched in the steering column. Most of the upper column has a plastic cover around it. There are 3 or more screw recesses in the bottom of this cover. Once you have this cover off you should be able to see the wiring. It may be possible to get a little more working room by loosening the support bracket under the dash.

Sometimes you can see more by visiting a Salvage yard and looking at another Expedition or F-150. Depending on the damage inside your column, you may want to pull another harness out of a wreck instead of attempting to patch your own.

Where is the horn brush and slip ring on a 1996 suburban. After a new multifunction switch was replaced the horn won't work.


Under the steering wheel. If the clock spring is broken the horn wont blow, the cruse wont work and the air bag light stays on.

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:

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Without Air Bag
See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8
Disconnect the battery ground cable before removing the steering wheel. When installing a steering wheel, always make sure that the turn signal lever is in the neutral position.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If your vehicle is equipped with controls for the radio on the steering wheel proceed as follows:

  1. Pry out the control button assembly with a thin bladed tool along the top of the edge of the assembly.
  2. Disconnect the steering wheel control.

  1. On vehicles without the radio controls on the steering pad, take a thin-bladed tool and pry the pad off the steering wheel. On wheels with a center cap, pull off the cap.

Removal & Installataion
  1. Verify that the multifunction turn signal lever is in the center of the OFF position.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Disable the SIR (air bag) system. Refer to the Chassis Electrical Section.
  4. Remove the air bag module from the steering wheel.
  5. Remove the steering wheel.
  • Remove the upper and lower steering wheel trim covers using the following procedure.
    • Remove the tilt lever assembly.
    • Remove the two pan head tapping screws from the lower shroud.
    • Unlock the upper and lower shroud.
    • Remove the two Torx® head screws from the upper shroud.
    • Remove the upper shroud.
  • Remove the wire harness straps from the wire harness assembly and detach the wiring harness connectors from the switch side connectors.
  • Remove the two multifunction turn signal switch screws and remove the multifunction switch assembly from the vehicle.
  • To install:
    1. Install the multifunction switch to the steering column. Use a small flat-blade prytool to compress the electrical contact and move the multifunction turn signal switch into position. Verify that the electrical contact rests on the canceling cam. Install the screws and tighten to 62 inch lbs. (7 Nm).
    2. Route the wire harness along the steering column jacket assembly and secure into the wire harness strap. Install a new wire tie to the upper tilt head assembly and another lower along the wiring harness, as the original installation.
    3. Verify that the lever is in the center of the OFF position.
    4. Install the upper and lower steering column shrouds.
    5. Route the SIR connector through the steering wheel, align the scribe mark on the steering wheel made at removal, with the slash mark on the steering shaft and install the steering wheel. Install the steering shaft nut and torque to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
    6. Install the horn contact leads and the air bag connector to the back of the air bag. Make sure the CPA wedge is in place to secure the connector. Install the air bag by gently pushing on both the right and left sides of the air bag until the retaining springs engage.
    7. Enable the SIR system by connecting the yellow 2-way connector at the base of the steering column and installing the air bag fuse.
    8. Connect the negative battery cable. Test the horn, turn signals and headlight operation.
