1964 Horn Issue
I have a 1964 Impala and the horn is constantly honking when I connect the battery. Here is the history....
Horn worked fine. I replaced the turn signal switch a while back (was having turn signal and brake light issues). After I replaced it the horn wouldn't honk at all. I drove it around as is for a bit and then it was stored for the winter.
I recently disconnected the battery while I was detailing and painting the motor. While I was working on the car (with the battery disconnected) the horn blew on it's own (and scared the crap out of me!). I was leaning on the A/C area when the horn blew, not sure if that was a coincidence or if that could help diagnose the problem? I got everything finished up and connected the battery terminal and now the horn blows continuously.
Wondering if the turn signal switch is having a grounding issue or could this be the turn signal relay? I picked up a new relay but haven't installed it yet. Just wondering if anyone has any insight before I get started today. Thanks guys!
