    Does anyone have a diagram of the steering wheel internals for a k5 blazer?

    I was having horn problems and as began to dig into it appears someone has had the wheel apart...............

    That would be awsome

    I would love it if you could please scan that stuff in and send it to me at jfleming01@caharter.net.

    I just purchased this truck and someone has been in the wheel and messed things up......I found a broken plastic piece that I think holds the spring and pin in place.......


    Thanks

    again

    Part 17, page 5b sounds like what you think is broken.

    It's the turn signal cancelling cam, but it also has the "socket" that the horn spring assembly locks into. The plastic "socket" protrudes through the lock plate (black metal piece with all the cutouts along it's edge) and the spring assembly for the horn is pressed into that, and a button on the spring assembly latches into a cut in the side of the socket. Same idea as the turn signal bulbs with the nubs on the side of the bulb, and corresponding slots in the socket for them.

    Hope that helps in some way.

    so the farther I go the worse it gets

    Does anyone know how the turn signal arm connects to the turnsignal switch??

    there is this metal tab that has a ball on the end of it that appears to go into a slot in the turnsignal arm, and then some how it has to hook up or actuate the turnsignal switch..............any ideas?? The arm just seems to fall and not have any spring to it or stay in the center position


    Also when you assemble the hurn button/contact, what is the order? spring, then button, then black retainer I thing??

    thanks

    Justin

    the turn signal ball fits into a groove on the switch, and its held firm by 1 or 2 screws. There are two small springs that fit into the switch that hang down below the switch. The turn signal cancel cam hits these, and thats what turns the signal off.

    Spring goes in first. Then the retainer and snap ring. Then connect the horn wire, and snap the pad back into place.

    Randy

    I think I just figured out how the turn simal thing works.....It appears that there is a screw missing that is supposed to hold the metal arm attach to the top of the turn signal switch.....

    So you dont think I am some dummy.......I just purcahsed this truck from a guy that had all this stuff aready taken apart.....thats the reasons for all the silly questions....

    If you have an email address I would like to send you some pics.....If interrested send me an email to jfleming01@charternet. I think this horn switch is a little different then what you are discribing......


    thanks again

    Justin, sorry if the information you needed wasn't there. That was the entire steering wheel and column section in my manual.

    Well I have finally got all working well......After two trips to the dealership, a 9 dollar part, 1 screw missing, 8 hours of working, two new pullers and I have 1 horn that works and blinkers that work correctly now.


    BIG thanks to all for the help
