Question about Chevrolet Chevy

Open Question

Hello I have 1972 Chevelle SS with tilt steering, a 4 spoke type of steering wheel with a push button centre cap horn, much the same that is in the early 70's Z28's I believe.I can't seem to find the exact schematic or exploding diagram for the steering column/horn assembly. My horn does not work as I am missing one component I think, I think I need the spring type of washer that actually makes the contact and creates the horn button to "pop" back up when depressed to activate the horn! If I stick my tester down the opening where the insulator is, the horn will works. I do have the actual horn button and bracket that it snaps to, I also have the plastic circular piece that screws down on the steering column. any pictures or info would be hugely appreciated. Thank You

SOURCE: 1972 chevelle starter trouble

Since you have replaced the starter motor with a higher torque one then the next approach that I would take would be to inspect the flywheel teeth. It sounds like maybe these teeth could be damaged or even missing. If this is the case it requires you to get a new flywheel.

Use pag oil with a dye. Helps finding leaks. Think you have everything you need. Put the dryer on last and keep it sealed to prevent mositure from getting in. Pump it down for at least an hour on a new system.

Some compressors come with a full charge of oil. Use the right amount of oil. Add to compressor and add a little to the dryer as well.

need some good votes, thanks

Replacing steering wheel on a 1972 Rolls Royce .. How do i get the original horn button off existing stock wheel?


on some old english cars the central horn button had to be pushed down and at the same time twisted to the left ( anticlockwise
the method of fixing was by a series of interlocking pegs that had to have the button depressed and turned so that the pegs no longer were captive and allowed the spring under the button to push the button out of the steering wheel hub
IF you do not disconnect the horn wires first you may drive the neighbours mad as pressing the button will sound the horn

Pull off the horn button in the center of the steering wheel. It sounds like the wire to the horn button is loose and grounding out inside the steering wheel. Might just need reattached and everything will work as it should. Whatever the problem is, it is in the steering column.

Tilt steering wheel loose 1989 chev truck


Not a fun job sorry!
1) Remove horn button. 2) Remove steering wheel. 3) Remove turn signal/cruise lever and cancel cam. 4) Remove tilt pins with a pin puller(about $10) 5) Tighten the four loose screws that hold tilt mechanism to the column.
Be happy you do not have airbags.

What exactly does it mean tha tthe horn operation is ground through the horn switch button on the steering wheel? My horn only works if I am turning the wheel - otherwise it doesn't work at all. Also,...


look on the back of the steering wheel for small screws holding the horn switch onto the side of the steering wheel you look at. generally there will be two screws and then a couple of snaps, pull it off and pull off the connectors for the horns switch. you will not be able to find a new one, and a used one will be as old as that one. So get a push button switch at a hardware store and wire it to the connectors and then screw mount it onto a spoke in the steering wheel and you should be good to go.

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:

When performing service around the SIR system components or wiring, the SIR system MUST be disabled. Failure to do so could result in possible air bag deployment, personal injury or unneeded SIR system repairs.
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. On models equipped with a drivers side air bag, perform the following procedure:
    1. Disable the Supplemental Restraint System (if equipped).
    2. On all but 1996–98 models equipped with a air bag, unfasten the screws at the rear of the steering wheel.
    3. On 1996–98 models equipped with a air bag, turn the steering wheel 90° to access the rear shroud holes to the inflator module. Insert a screwdriver in the holes and push the leaf spring to release the pin. Turn the steering wheel 180° to access the remaining shroud holes and using the screwdriver, release the remaining pins.
    4. Tilt the inflator module rearward from the top to access the wiring. Tag and unplug the lead wire from the clip on the module, the lead wire from the clip on the steering wheel and the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) and retainer from the module.
  3. If not equipped with a drivers side air bag, remove the horn pad or button cap and disconnect the horn wires. Fig. 1: Remove the horn button cap 87988p13.jpg
    Fig. 2: Disengage the horn wiring 87988p14.jpg

    1. Attach the lead wire to the clip on the module, the lead wire to the clip on the steering wheel and the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) and retainer to the module.
    2. On 1996–98 models, install the inflator module by pressing it firmly into the steering wheel so that all four notched pins in the leaf spring are fully engaged. Be very careful that you do not pinch any wires.
    3. On all but 1996–98 models equipped with a air bag, install the inflator module and tighten the screws to 27 inch lbs. (3 Nm).
  11. Connect the battery ground cable and enable the SIR system (if equipped). Fig. 4: Remove the nut and washer from the steering shaft 87988p16.jpg

7. Remove the 1 Screw Holding Down the Turn Sygnal Lever
8.Now Carfully Pull the Entire Assembly OUT of the Center so as for it to be Out of your Way
9. Look CLOSLY at the Ignition Lock Cylinder Area and Locate Chromed Looking Button
10.. Push this Button While Slightly Pulling on the Ignition Key Lock and Remove Lock. NOTE If Lock seems th NOT want to come out you will need to Insert the IGNITION Key, But I Believe this 1972 Does Not Require the KEY

INSTALATION IS REVERSE PROCEDURE KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON DETAIL. THIS SHOULDTAKE 2 HOURS
This is Off the Cuff as Most references DO NOT go Back to 1972 And I have Conducted this Procedure Literaly Hundreds of times

Horn fuses all good but when i push button i don't have any horn or even hear relay. this all started after i had new bushing installed in steering wheel. Could the wires behind the wheel have been cut ?


Do you mean you had new bearings put in the top of the steering wheel column ? Do you have a tilt feature or a tilt / travel feature? Regardless, yes, the wire could have been cut, but I would suspect a poor connection in the slip ring or the horn pad connector was just not connected to the connector at the slip ring when it was put back together. Do you have cruise control switches on your steering wheel ? If so , I would pull steering wheel and check the slip ring connections first.
