101 horn button wires

Hello,

This should be easy... Its been years since I took the horn button out of the car. I have a red wire and a black wire up through the center of the column. I see a place to connect a wire to the horn button, however which wire goes there, red or black.
And where does the other wire connect? I have searched the shop manual, and the forum with no luck. However I am no expert on finding things on the forum, Please help.

I also see on on thread mention of an O ring, is there suppose to be a large diameter O ring someplace?

Regards,
Paul

I don't have the wiring diagram handy but he odd wire must go to the flasher assembly. the O ring is the big thing that holds the horn assembly to the steering wheel. I know that this is of little help but it might get you started while you wait for a better answer.

If connected as shown the center button will flash the headlights and the chrome ring will sound the horn.
Just reverse the wires if you want the opposite actuation.

The O ring holds the black plastic annular retainer and the center button to the chrome ring.

Thank you Joe,

I finally figured it out. Its a slightly different set up on the 1600, the red wire attaches to the screw terminal similar to yours, however there is a bullet connector in the center of the horn button that the black wire attaches to. It turns out the female receiver for the black wire is missing on my horn button, hence the confusion. I still dont quite get the O ring..

Sounds like you have the three spoke wheel.
I don’t think that design uses an O ring.
