    I love the process of finding out the problem and working out a solution, finally the successful repair. I was hooked on computer repair videos 2 years ago and today I'm fixing a lot of video game consoles. I love what you did to the Corvette in these videos!

    Rule #1: RTFM.
    You should always get a shop manual before taking a wrench to any car. This is especially true if you aren't familiar with the car. I am very glad I got one before doing a brake job on my old Saab years ago because the front discs were some needlessly wacky over-engineered contraption that was unlike anything I had seen before or since. Without the $12 Chilton's I would have been screwed (this was in the very early days of the Internet before everything and its mother was available online and a fast connection was 9600 bps).

    Anyone else notice the green wire sticking out of the loom in his hand at 8:34? Get yourself a Fluke multimeter and an airbag safe test light. I have worked on custom automotive electronics since the mid 90's. You gotta have both to diagnose anything electrical. Especially in an accident damaged vehicle. Wires get damaged with all of that metal being crushed together.

    no, the quick trick would be to actually diagnose first before going out and buying unnecessary parts. in this case even the manual was not really required.

    Cut wire = someone did this to take the original part off. No other reason for it to be cut so close to the wire gang.

    That wire you had the horn connected to at first is a constant hot and the wire is orange . I’m almost positive that it is for the hood light . Hope you capped off those wrong wires . They are constantly hot . Great video Sam I love finding and dealing with problems like this ..

    Voltmeter isn't even necessary to fix this issue.

    All you needed to do was hook a test light up to the red wire and pull the relay.

    If the test light stays on then it's not the horn relay/ switch.

    Did you look up the wires that were mistakenly connected to the horn to determine their purpose?
