Oh where oh where has my horn relay gone

Ack! Looking at the wiring diagram I thought I knew where the horn relay was. I went to the side of the steering column and found the black line with tracer but wouldn't you know, the line dissapears over the steering column. I didn't have time to remove the steering column shroud to search for the relay, can anyone tell me where that little bugger resides?

I'm not sure on your year, but if you disconnect the horn and press the button, you should be able to hear the relay clicking. It could be under the hood, so listen with the hood up!

on my 82 7 it was behind the dash above the headlight switch just kind of hanging around. the relay is pretty good size about 1 1/2" cubed and mine was gray with a black plug and a big honking red wire.


oops seen that you found it in another post..

Yeppirs, but I still thank you for your help! When I replaced that relay last night I was dismayed that the old one looked rather new and mfd by same maker (lower slovobia) I wonder if they come higher than 20 amp. If it fails again I'm going to use a Standard (Brand Name Standard) relay as their electrical components are superior, especially their Blue Streak line.

Try in the Ebrake area. Mine was hiding there.

Thanks MMPSM, found it and got it replaced. Now that I see Standard auto electric products makes these too, if it fails again I'll go with them.
