Default 1932 model B pickup truck light and horn not working

My horn was acting up then started working and now my lights are not working and the horn stopped working too. I think it may be in the steering wheel controls. Any help would be very greatly appreciated. I'm a new member and look forward to any assistance . Cheers Rick

With a multimeter, check for continuity from horn button to base of rod thru column where it enters light switch. You will not have to take the rod out, just take bottom clip off at switch & raise it up a bit. Will tell you if it has a broken wire or not. May have oil in switch, bad contacts etc. Cheers

Before doing anything else make sure the wire bail is holding the switch body tightly in place.
