you are at the point where you need a lock plate removal tool. they can be purchased many places (simply google lock plate removal tool, check your local parts houses). here is one for 20 bucks at autozone

Well you are missing the spring contact here. You will have to dig deeper into the column now.
Try disconnecting the Turn signal connector and see if the horn stops. That would tell you if the problem is in the column or someplace else.

When you say I'm missing the spring contact, are you talking about the pin inside the spring? Or is there another piece? I have the spring and the pin.

I guess I'll be getting a lock plate puller.

Pin and spring. I didn't see it in the picture. If you got a picture of it with the pin in place, that would be great. I havn't found such a picture yet...

Did you try and disconnect the turn signal harness yet? you don't need a puller to do that yet...

No I haven't tried yet. I'll be out of pocket for a few days so I'll try it when I get back.

How would I disconnect the turn signal harness?

I have seen horns short internally and blow constantly. If you have access to another horn you could try it. but I agree with John I think it is your column. Unless you have a direct short caused by bare wire.

Not wanting to hi-jack the thread but does anyone know where you can get the original sounding Jeep horn, the one that sorta sounded like the meep meep from the Road Runner (cartoon character) for you youngsters.

This is the plug:



It's usually mounted on the bottom side of the steering column.

Oh ok. That should be easy enough to check.


Thanks!
