I've been driving my 91 without a working horn for to long, it just isn't safe IMO. It has a custom steering wheel & a new horn kit on it & the button is working properly.

When I push the horn button, I can here the relay clicking. But there's no power at the plug in, at the horn. I've checked all the fuses, all are good.

I've got a manual, it say's with no power at the plug, is to 'repair the relay'. I know approximately where the relay is, only I don't know what it looks like or how to repair it. When the relay 'clicks', should I be able to feel the click by touching the relay?

As you can tell, I'm electrically challenged and need help.:surrender:

yes, the relay will be able to be felt when it is clicking.

unless it has been relocated, it should be out under the hood next to the battery area.

and if you can hear it clicking, it is most likely not working properly, none of my relays make a clicking noise when they are powered.

That's where my manual says it should be & that's where I hear the clicking, I just can't pin point it. Is it a dark brown plastic box with 4 prongs off the bottom of it?

Thanks jfb.

I've read that about the ink pen spring, might have been from you. I'm purdy sure the spring is good, well, it's new at least. I was able to feel the relay click. We'll see what happens when I get a new one.
