69 horn relay batt connection

Should the fatter red wire from battery go on the left side of the buss bar that has batt stamped on it and the thin red air with fuseable link go on the right screw?

Re: 69 horn relay batt connection

The larger red wire goes next to the plastic connector plug.

Re: 69 horn relay batt connection

I had it backwards before and fixed it. Could that have done any damage or caused a problem. Also the fusable link wire has 6 inches of solid copper wire.

Re: 69 horn relay batt connection

The buss and lugs look to be common, functionally it would not matter if the wires were switched. No solid wire down there in my cars wiring, are you sure something hasn't been fried and is just hard to the touch? The large red wire the others are formed with is stiff but it's not solid.

Re: 69 horn relay batt connection

It was spliced it ..the original connection is gone.

Also when I put a test light to the pink/blk wire for buzzer it works for a few seconds then stops. Can the aftermarket horn relay contacts be cleaned inside

Re: 69 horn relay batt connection

Yeah a picture is worth a thousand words. In my experience when a fusible link has fused it is discolored at the least, sometimes "crunchy" looking or totally dissolved, not "hard" so don't think you have damaged anything. You can hit any of the large auto box stores and feel some fusible link available in spools.

Most Horn Relays can be opened by gently prying the tabs on the cover where they connect to the contact base and the contacts cleaned, but if it is not original dated GM and you are not building a show car why bother. Cheap and available just replace it with a new Horn Relay IMHO.

Re: 69 horn relay batt connection

I'm sure its not fusable link. What size fuseable link would be used on that wire? I agree with you about replacing not cleaning. I just wanted to do some troubleshooting with the old one. Also what was the original horn relay for this car. The build date was November 1968? Thanks for all your help

Re: 69 horn relay batt connection

I removed the solid wire and replaced with a 16 gauge red wire with correct clip for the screw for now. When I used the ohm meter from the steering column to the steering box the meter sounded off and had a reading so it should be good. When I jumped the 2 wires on the bottom of the column the buzzer went off like it should. When I put the meter on the steering wheel side I have nothing. I would think the next step is to remove the steering wheel. would like to know if the buzzer switch is still being made if anyone knows. Thanks

Re: 69 horn relay batt connection

If member JimL82 doesn't respond send him a PM. He has a troubleshooting guide for the key buzzer system. Sorry about the other night, I was PUII.

The key buzzer switch is reproduced. You shouldn't have a problem finding one.

Here is everything Jim has produced about GM steering. You'll find a treasure trove of diagrams and parts break-downs for your steering column.

Re: 69 horn relay batt connection

Thanks for all the help. I pulled the wheel today and pulled up on the buzzer prongs and after that didnt work cleaned the contacts with miniral spirits and that did the trick. But it is working with door open just like it should be.
