Need to setup push button for horn

Hi all, this may appear somewhere on the board, But what I have is an issue with my horn, on the steering column, it is all broken, And to pass inspection, must have horn, I am thinking about wiring my own push button to my horn using a Relay.

Car: 1980 Camaro/eng:305.

I found out how to wire the Relay, but where does the button go, And I may have it connected wrong, if someone who has set this up before, please help, I have no idea how to wire in the push button horn.

You need to locate the wire that runs up to the current horn button. If you are installing a push button, all you will need to to is ground 1 terminal and connect the other terminal to the wire that runs up to the current horn button. There is already a relay so you dont need to install another
