Horn

I almost feel stupid asking this but..... where is my horn supposed to be? haha

I just got this car and am working out all the bugs. The horn doesn't work and I haven't got a repair manual yet to show me where it's supposed to be. They're usually in the front grill but it's not there.

Re: Horn

Welcome aboard. There are no stupid questions here.
But you should let folks know the year and model of your Camaro when you post so we all can tune in on what we know about that. i.e. 69 SS 396 4 speed, or Plain Jane L6, or base coupe or convert etc. Plus we all like car porn so any pics you can post are always a good thing.

That all said you may have already answered your own question. You can't miss them when you open the hood, they hang before the radiator behind the grill-work at the top by the hood latch. Sounds like yours have been removed and therefore no noise. If they are there (one on each side) it maybe the horn switch in the steering wheel or the horn relay gone bad.

Check to see if they are connected to the harness leads, both do not need to be connected, but the horns do need a ground. You can bench test them if you suspect they are dead.

Horns are required for registering here in CT and I assume part of any U.S. states safety inspection so you can rig a temp to get through inspection if that is your situation. A friend of mine passed inspection with an old Simplex fire alarm klaxon screwed to his F150's firewall. But check your state's decibel regulations.

Re: Horn

They should be there between the grill & radiator support. A green wire connects to them.
