Alrighty, it seems like I've got rapid fire issues with this car. Just goes to show, don't let them sit!

My horn wasn't working, so I checked the wires leading to the horns. They were disconnected, but when I connected them, the horn just started and would not turn off unless I disconnected the wires again. Would this be an issue with the spring/button assembly in the steering wheel?

Sure is,check to make sure that the horn ring assembly in the wheel is free and not full of grease off your hands etc,a lot of contact cleaner is the way to fix it.The horns are "live " all the time so that when you push the horn ring you are allowing the current to flow to earth .I doubt if it would be a short any where as the wiring is bullet proof.[8D][8D]

Thanks! I will go about cleaning off the contacts and checking on the spring and button contacts.
