I have a ford tempo 1994. I have a stupid horn problem is there any thing that you can tell me that may be able to help? I think it is a connection problem in the steering wheel. When I giggled the connection it smoked. Any suggestions? I am a broke vet.

If there is an air bag in the steering wheel, the clock spring is probably coming apart. That is a wound-up ribbon cable in a plastic housing. It has circuits for the air bag, horn, and cruise control. There is just a ground circuit in there for the horn relay, so the smoke you saw is likely from current trying to get through a bad connection, not from an overload.
