    Hello, Sorry if this has been hashed to death in earlier posts. I have
    searched the archives and
    still have questions.
    My horn is not working, BTW I hate the position of the horn buttons.
    Almost impossible to hit
    one of them when it is immediately needed. That aside.
    I removed the suspect horn. Checked the voltage at the connector and
    their is 12v when the
    horn button is pressed.
    integrated into it.
    I went to Auto Zone and they sold me a horn that, they said would work
    with my car.
    When I got it home it only has 2 terminals to connect to = no relay on
    the horn.

    I have searched the net for a replacement horn that has a relay
    integrated into the horn but have yet to find one.

    Any info and or links to a site that has one will be appreciated.
    Thanks Dan.

    Not sure if this helps but FIAM (spelling?) makes a replacement for just
    about any GM horn. Have the local parts store counter check out the part or
    goto NAPA they might have an exact replacement.

    I had to replace the horn on my 96 SL2 and I couldn't find a non-Saturn
    horn which would work. They pretty well sewed up the market by putting the
    relay on the horn. I bought a Saturn replacement. At least I cheated them
    on labor by installing it myself.

    I did the same thing. I couldn't find a horn. I bought a Saturn
    replacement. On the old horn and the replacement one the relay is
    potted. On the old horn where the potted relay is connected to the
    horn there was alot of rust. So on the new horn I ran a bead of
    silicone sealant around this whole area. I doubt I will own this car
    long enough to tell if this makes a difference.
    I also installed it myself. Very easy with help from searching this
    forum. I installed it on my 15 min. break at work.

    Just buy a generic 12v relay and mount it somewhere dry and close to any
    standard non-relay equipped replacement (or used) horn.

    You do not need to repair a faulty design by installing identical and
    inferior parts.

    Good luck, YMMV
