It must be steering wheel week! I'm installing the new wheel,
horn did not work before, it has not been working sense I got the car. I got the wheel on the car, followed the directions (I think). After connecting up the battery I have a poping sound
under the dash and the interior light is blinking! I must have a short!!! There was one step in the install were it talked about
doing sonething with a spring for the Ford two wire horn setup. I couldn't find anything that looked like the picture....Any
idea's???

Whe I installed mine, it said to toss the big spring for the trim ring that you press to honk the horn. There was a little instruction sheet inside my adapter that stated to use the supplied foam pads in place of the spring(s).

Anyhow, it looked like the spring that they provided was going to be very close to shorting out.

Good luck...

I have a quick fix for ya.

Step 1
Remove the wheel and adapter, box it up, and send it back.

Step2
Order a LeCarra

Step3
Spend 15 minutes installing everything, including a horn button that works...
