Horn

My horn only works when the steering wheel is straight. Hmmm.... could be a broken wire but would like some opinions first... anyone got any ideas?

I did that when I tried to figure out why my horn wasn't working. I even pulled apart the horn pad.

well it might be a broken wire
did you clean the contacts, sometimes it just takes a little film for it not to work.

I don't know how the horn pad connects to the steering column. it looks like 3 contacts to a contact plate around the column. Is that what you mean?
