I'm a bit novice to the whole electrical thing so maybe I'm doing the continuity part wrong? This is the meter I'm using.
7 Function Multimeter
I switch it to 200 on the ohms section and it just reads 1 . no matter if the horn switch is depressed or not and even without trying to measure anything. So maybe this meter just reads 1 instead of showing an infinity sign?
BTW, I really appreciate your help on this thus far!
Based on your findings I’m willing to put money on the clockspring being the problem as RonD
eluded. However, if you’d like to test further, try the following:
1. Disconnect the Battery before proceeding. This is a safety precaution when disconnecting any electrical components involving the air bag system.
2. Pull the relay.
3. Pull the horn pad and disconnect the electrical connectors (note which go to the horn switch’s.
4. Set your meter to ohms and insert one of the probes into terminal #2 of the relay socket. Insert the other probe into the connector from the clockspring that goes to the horn switch’s. You should see a reading of 1 ohm or less.
5. Next pull the probe from the clockspring connector and connect it to a good chassis ground. Meter should read OL or out of limit (what ever it shows when first set to ohms without the probes touching anything). If it still reads 1 ohm or less, you’re going to have to remove the steering wheel and clockspring to test further.
