I installed an original chev sport steering wheel. I can not get the horn from continued sounding off or way too sensitive. Sounds off even before installing horn cap to finish install. What am I doing wrong? Is the horn contact pin too long or too short? What am I missing? Thanks

Did you reuse the original pin from the std strg wheel? I know from removing a few of these that they are different. Perhaps that is what is causing the problem?

Is it this wheel sir? If it is, I'd like to know what you come up with. I bought what I thought was the correct one for mine and I get nothing from it. I would also like to know what direction the thin metal piece goes. Curve up, or down.

To answer your question Jeff...the curve goes up.  I went thru this myself as the horn doesn't work on my car, either.  My horns are good...as is the relay.  Figure it must be wire inside the strg column as I can't even short it at the metal plate to make it work.  Anyway, this photo was taken after I removed the parts from a junker and kept them in proper position for reference.  BTW...nice shifter 'ya got there...lol!

I went through this also, but not remembering exactly what I did. I had to make my own pin and if it is too long or too short it doesn’t work. I had ordered the little adapter kit which didn’t work right out of the box due to the pin.

Thank-you all for your help. In the end the belleville spring (thin metal piece) curved side up but I had to bend it more to create a greater curve. It stopped the rattle and now horn button works as it should. Looks good works great Smile
