Military-Vehicles: [MV] M37 Horn Working!

[MV] M37 Horn Working!
Sat, 4 Oct 1997 22:44:34 -0400 (EDT)

I ended up drilling a couple of holes in the horn button, starting some
woodscrews in, and using a screwdriver to twist the button by leveraging
against the two scews. It came out easily, then. I had sort of frozen in
place, and didn't want to twist loose. I used a drill with a wire-brush bit
to clean all of the metal parts underneath the horn button and then applied
grease to all of the metal surfaces, put it all back together and checked worked fine!

Then, I started the truck and backed it out of the gargage, and the horn
started honking for no reason - and wouldn't stop. I quickly opened the
battery box and unhooked one of the battery cables. After a bit of
inspecting, I determined that I had applied too much grease to the horn
button contacts. After removing the excess grease, the horn works fine.

Thanks to all who replied with advice on removing the stuck horn button.
