Your steering wheel will vibrate at higher speeds due to either wear in your front tires or improper balance of tire pressure. IF these are not the promblem look to see if there is damanage to the shaft under the vehicle between the tires.

How do you install the steering column in a 1985 Monte Carlo?

Disconnect the steering column from the power steering box in the engine compartment (there is a seal and it will not pull out easy). Remove the cover from underneath the steering column inside the car. Disconnect all wire connectors. There is a bracket underneath the column - remove the four bolts from it. There is s boot seal where the column goes through the firewall - it may also contains a bolt that wiil need to be removed. If it has a column shifter, you will need to disconnect this as well. Make sure when you slide the new steering column into the power steering box that the tires are straight and so is the steering wheel. If you forget, the steering wheel will not be straight while driving.

What would cause the horn to sound when 1993 olds is not on?

The car does not have to be running for the horn to work. Horn button in steering wheelt can be making contact, the wire that goes thru the steering wheel and down the column is making contact, any point in the negative side of the horn can cause it to honk. Question. Does it by itself, when car is bumped or rocked, when steering wheel is turned? I would look at steering wheel first. take you horn part of the steering wheel a part and make sure that the plastic in there is not broken or the wires are not of the contections
