The power door lock actuator or relay located on the drivers side arm rest is shot. Any body know where I can get a new one? Also, where in the world is the horn relay at? It is gone as well.

As far as the actuators go, they are typically all over E-Bay, but mainly because they get top dollar for them. I recommend spending a few hours at the local junk yard. They should be all over the place.

Sorry, can't help with the horn relay....

If your horn in constantly going off, it is probably the horn pad on the steering wheel itself. The horn pad is actually the horn switch, its two metal plates with thin foam in between them. On my old '86 that foam was dead so it was always making contact. You can take the rubber off then replace the foam and be good as new

The horn is not working at all. Just get a clicking sound. I mispoke on the power locks. It is not the actuator, rather the power door lock button which comes off of the main switches on the driver's side door.

Have you tried taking the power door lock switch apart and cleaning the contacts? I fixed mine in an '87 that way, and know of other people who have done the same.

One of the contacts is completely shot/loose. I was going to do a good cleaning until I saw that.
