That is why you saw horns go off by themselves sometimes.....it would somehow get grounded
Funny you mentioned that. A few years back my daily driver/gas saver 93 Mazda Protege did that. Got real cold one night & the cover over the Horn button actually shrank/sucked in and the Horn has been stuck On since then. Skint/Cut my knuckles bad trying to unplug that ear Blaster.

Horn button

Can one of you guys tell me how the horns originally worked on these older vehicles, I see the single wire coming out at the very bottom thru a hole in the steering box and that runs up to the button on the wheel ( which I am assuming acts as a switch ) but how did the horn originally get any power ?

I have the schematics for the truck but they do not even show a horn within the wiring diagram.
