Horn problem- 72 malibu converted to a ss-454

Hello,
I havent been here in a while, not had time to work on the "beast". I cant figure out why my horn wont work on my 72 malibu convert to ss..I have installed the ss dash and wiring harness in side motor compartment and under-dash...have I missed the horn relay, does anybody know how the dash conversion affects the horn/relay...FYI before the dash conversion the horn did not work. If I power the horn wire at the inside motor compartment, the horn will blow..any help would be appreciated.

Welcome back. have you traced the wires from the horn down to see if there was any problems there. Or could be the relay.

I dont think I have any problems in the steering or the push button..my problem is I converted the wiring harness to an ss dash which replaced all the wiring under the dash, and under the hood.. I dont see anything under there that resembles a horn relay..and what I see under the hood above the brake booster does not resemble a horn relay, does anybody have a pic of the horn relay and location..thanks

Should be on the firewall above the booster from the factory on the 72 . Unless someone else removed it or re-located it.JMO

72 Chevelle horn problem

I have converted my 72 malibu dash to the ss style..my horn never worked, and now I want to know how to make it operate. When I power the wire under the hood at the firewall connection it will operate...It appears that everything under the steering wheel is ok. Where is the relay and what does it look like, will it be different from the malibu style after the conversion..any help will be appreciated

Absolutly awsome reply--I have heard that this relay can be repaired any suggestions, as it has also been said that they are hard to find.
