Whatever it is, it is not factory and a prior owner did it. AMC did not use connectors or a relay that looks like that. Nor would they have had that many red wires in one location.

moc-
thanks....that red wire wire with white trace comes out of a main harness. that explains alot. i will try to hook up the horn now.

i guess the horn relay then is under dash, and as the previous poster mentioned most likely this relay is added for some reason by po.....

thanks for the help. hopefully i will have a horn soon.
