I fixed my horn

By replacing some fuses I got my interior fan and dash lights to work.

I think it will pass a safety inspection

Now that the horn is fixed, I guess you don't have to worry about the brakes not working

The brakes are fine. I replaced pretty much everything except the master cylinder and the vacuum booster.

Wilwoods are cool.:thumbsup:

How did you fix the horn? Its the only thing in my 1980 that is not working correctly, and it frustrates me when the car is not perfect!

Well when I pushed the horn button I heard my horn relay click, so I took a wire and attached it too the hot stud on the horn relay. Then I used a DC check light connector thing (its got an alligator clip on a red wire, then the black wire has a light on a stick so when you push the stick against a ground the light lights up if there is power at that location), I used the alligator clip to attach the jumper wire to the horn lead. then I pushed the ground stick with the light against the radiator support. So with the jumper power got to the horn. At this point there was no horn blowing. I grounded the light device 1 more time and the horn went off, startling me so much I almost fell on my butt(my face was like 9 inches from the horn). So I disconnected my jumper wire, and reattached the normal connector and pushed the horn button a few times and it worked.

What is wrong with your horn?
