Re: why dont my horn work

can you hear the horn relay click when you push the horn button?
It's on the drivers side of the radiator support and clicks pretty loud.

I'm gonna have this moved to electrical, this forum is for membership questions.

Re: why dont my horn work

here's the horn relay wiring: https://www.camaros.net/techref/elect...horn_relay.htm
The black wire goes thru the harness, up the steering column, and ends up at the lil spring loaded "button" under the cancelling cam. The brass ring on the underside of the cancelling cam picks up the signal and brings it into the steering wheel to the horn buttons. When you press the button, it grounds the black wire and blows the horn.

Re: why dont my horn work

the horn is not fused on a 67-69 Camaro.
