The horn on my 69 doesn't work. The wires are connected and the contacts are clean. Is there a fuse or a relay for the horn?

There should be a horn fuse.Test to see if your getting power to the horn.If so try another horn.

I agree. However, there's no place labled for a horn fuse. All of my fuses are good. To test the circuit, can I connect a volt meter to the connector at the horn and hit the horn button?

Yes, that's how you do it. If you find no juice, take your horn pad off your wheel and check for juice there.

Yes BUT 1st you could run a jumper wire from the battery to the horn.Make sure the horn is making a good ground contact.
Then run a wire from the positive battery side to where the wire connects to the horn.Only tap it to see it the horn makes any noise at all.I had a bad horn on my car.

Another late update. I have no juice at the horn. I also cant see any wires connected to the horn ring inside the steering wheel. Do I need to pull the wheel to find them? Anybody have a wiring diagram for a 69 horn?

I dont have a diagram but I'd pull the wheel and see what you have under there.

Have you taken the wheel pad off?

Yep. Did that when I first posted about this. I even removed the horn ring. That's how I know that the contacts are good. At least I think they are.

You can check the contacts with a continuity test, then you test the terminals at the wheel and see if they are live.

The driver's side horn is dead. The passenger's side works when you straight wire it to the battery. I've pulled the steering wheel and cleaned the goop that was on the contact rings and contancts. I also used some fine sand paper and electical spray cleaner. The horn will make a growling sound when you hold the rim just right. The same sound happens when I conntect a jumper at the steering wheel. Should I apply a layer of dielecric grease to the contacts and contact rings?

It sound like the horn is not getting enough juice.
Did you disconect the bad horn?,and then try the horn pad.

I've had the bad horn disconnected and it still made the same sound. I think its in the contacts underneath the steering wheel. When I jump a wire across them I get the growling sound. Thanks for all of the suggestions but its a moot point now. I broke my [email protected]%ing horn ring. Now the delima is do I buy a $50 horn ring or go ahead and replace the wheel?
