I have a newly acquired four door sedan, 116-27 that the previous owner fully restored, except he failed to connect the horn. In looking at the service manual, it appears that one terminal on the horn is wired directly to the hot side of the battery at the current limiting relay and the other terminal connects to ground through the horn button on the steering wheel. Is that correct? If so, how does the wire from the horn button come out of the steering column? How difficult is it to take the horn button out of the steering wheel to see if a wire is even attached to it? Any help will be very much appreciated. Thanks, Bill.

It's fairly easy to check the connection at the button, just a hold screw I believe and a bit of carful tweaking as you lift off the levers and such. As for the wire down the column itself, I have never been brave enough to try removing that one for fear of never getting one back in. For your run on the hot side of the batter, yes, that sounds correct. Been a while but I believe the same set up of connection is true for the dome light.
