Q; I cant seem to get my horns to work from the horn ring, I have the voltage to the column, I ground out the column wire to the body and the horn works, but not through the column. How is the column grounded? I have a 64 xl conv.
A; Well, the first thing to check is the rag joint at the base of the steering shaft where It connects to the steering box. [this usually is the problem] There is a metal strap on the rag joint designed to electrically couple the shaft to the steering box. This will ground your column. Be sure that the strap is in good shape and is properly connected. Confirm by doing a continuity test between the shaft and the steering box. The 2nd most common thing is to be sure that there are both brushes there, one in the column and one in the steering wheel.
