American AutoWire

I've jut laid out my AAW Classic Camaro dash wiring and the only thing that seems out of place is the connector for the horn relay. Was there ever a Camaro with the horn relay under the dash? Am I missing something? Thank you in advance for any answers.

Re: American AutoWire

Never heard of a 1st generation GM anything with the horn relay inside the vehicle. What makes you think the mystery connector is for the horn relay?

Re: American AutoWire

The Classic Update kit does use a horn relay that is mounted inside the car. When you look at the wiring diagrams with the kit, you'll see that AAW manages power distribution differently than GM did, so there is no need for the buss bar that was at the bottom of the OE horn relay.

I assume if you were really fussy about having exact OE appearing wiring, you'd have chosen the AAW Factory Fit harnesses. I just clipped the Update's horn relay onto the dash structure where my hazard flasher used to fit (now on the Update's fuse block), and got on with my life.

I was not aware of that.

Re: American AutoWire

Yeap ... I was stumped when installing my AAW kit as well ... but I like having the relay under the dash and it works great ...

Re: American AutoWire

Thanks for the promt answers, guys! So far, the only harness that I've taken out of the package is the dash kit...you say the required relay is in the kit somewhere? Didn't see it with that stuff.

Re: American AutoWire

Yep, that's where it should be. There are two silver round flashers, and one square black relay, and they should be with all the fuses.
