Getting my new whip ready for inspection and discovered my horn has issues. The horn was disconnected from the bumper and now I know why. It won’t stop blowing when I hook the wire back up to the actual horn. I removed the horn assembly on the steering wheel and and for obvious reasons it stops because the mechanism is no longer grounded. I tested the ground wire on the steering wheel and can hear the relay clicking when I disconnect the actual horn so all is good with that. Everything makes sense up till now. Problem is, when I connect the ground wire the assembly and attach it to the steering wheel the horn won’t stop honking. I assume it’s staying grounded when I hook it up. Been troubleshooting it for a little while and I’m wondering what the issue might be. Any thoughts?
