I've got a 91 Legend coupe. All buttons on the steering wheel are non-operative, including radio channel, radio volume, horn (both buttons) cruise control.
I've been upside down under the dash with flashlight and mirror, looking for disconnected wires.
I checked fuse box left front kick panel. Only possible applicable fuse, cruise, is fine. I've pulled the steering column shroud and looked at wires there, all appear connected and in good shape (no obvious kinks or abrasions).
Can anyone suggest what else I can check? Are there any other fuses that would control everything on the steering wheel.
The radio does work, but only controls on the radio. Horn does work, because the horn alarm will sound if provoked.
The purpose of the clockspring is to handle the ability to turn the wheel and not bind wires required for the various controls on the steering wheel. So the basic answer is no you can't run a wire to the horn button but you could add a button somewhere else for the horn but learning to use it would be interesting. The replacement of the clockspring is not that bad, just the cost of a new one is painful.

If you can break loose the big nut (16-19mm I can't really recall) that holds down the steering wheel then the job would be very easy, most of the works are plug and play ( I changed out one before). Just be careful when playing with the airbag, the best thing is to disconnect your battery before you plan to do anything. Obtain your radio code as well if you still have the Bose unit.
MOD's done so far:
Gentex mirror installed (02-04-07). Hella Micro DE fog lights (03-10-07). BMW X5 smoke side markers (05-10-07). JDM 1 piece head lights w / DRL. Addco front and rear sway bars
my question is if horn is working perfect then the clockspring has to be good right? my pac unit isnt working anymore and im thinking a wire just got loose. it was working before. there is only one blue wire for all three functions right?
