I am trying to replace my voltage stabiliser due to problems with temp guage readings.
I swapped out the old one with the same wires except that I replaced the old earth wire that was giving a weak current with a better new one.
For some bizarre reason the horn is now permanently on when I turn the ignition key. I can find no obvious reason for this in the manual.
If anyone can help I will be eternally grateful.

I had a similar problem with my car, and found the steering wheel had moved forward enough for the wheel to contact the horn connections, making a ground and activating the horns. Readjusting the telescoping section of the column worked for me, but putting a plastic shield under the wheel might be a better solution.

but I just realised that the horn should always be 'on' if it is on when the ignition is turned only, it must be the wiring, cos a horn needs to work without the keys in the ignition !
