Ok here's my problem, I know how the 3 step works but the problem is when I first installed my line lock we did so by running through the horn button in the steering wheel so you wouldn't have a cord twisting around the column. It is wired where there is 12 volts to the line lock at all times and cycles when the button is pushed which takes away the ground. Now my problem is that I need 12 volts applied when button is pushed so how is a simple way to fix this?? Thanks ahead, Dave.

I would use a relay. You can use the ground circuit to open or close the relay and wire the switching part of the relay to do whatever you want.

This is a diagram of a common type of relay. I usually keep a couple of these with a connector on the shelf. You should be able to pick one up at a local parts store or if you're close to Shepherdsville I can hook you up with one. The NAPA part number on the relay is AR143 and the connector is EC23.
