[Healeys] Horn blowing--BJ8--update

Thanks for all the feedback-----so far I have removed the business end of the trafficator (a real pain to get back together) and found no reason there for the horn to blow by itself.  The insides of the trafficator needed a good cleaning anyway, the signal light contacts were filthy.  OK--------put it all back together and still the horn blows when I push the wheel forward-------so----guess the next move is to pull it all out of the tube and inspect it.  quick question----what is the position of the cancelling piece on the metal ring in relation to the two "triggers"?  should that piece be centered between the two triggers?  Assume so.  That's where I put it, but I'm not getting canceling now.Great way to spend pandemic time:):)Tom

Certainly agree with Bob.I would think that the stator harness (inside the stator tube which is inside the steering shaft which is inside the steering column) is damaged. The stator harness can be changed without actually removing the stator tube, easier on your car with the adjustable steering wheel,  but it takes careful work and some degree of patience.

 The horn button grounds the circuit IIRC (the lead is hot). Check
 the connectors out of the steering box, but if it's not that then,
 yeah, you have something exposed to ground somewhere.

When I move the steering wheel in toward the dash, the horn
 blows.  Not caused by the horn button--I have it removed----my
 guess---a bare wire somewhere in the column----or-----?????  Any
 ideas before I pull these wires out of the column with all that
