I am certain it is the fuse or relay, but I can find neither.
Looking at the inside fuse box was my first action in troubleshooting after making sure the horn compressor was working properly.
I was a bit surprised at not finding a socket for either a dedicated horn signal or a ganged socket.
There is another fuse box under the hood, that is quite strange, it appears as though all of the cars electronics go through it. The lid pops of the receptacle and all the fuses and relays appear to be attached to the underside of the lid.
I assume that is where the relay is, which would logically imply that the fuse is next to it.
The problem is that in order to get to it you about have to disconnect all the many jacks that attach the panel to the wiring.
I would rather know for certain it is all there before messing with taking that all apart only to find it is a dead end.
If it is there then the rest is a cakewalk, I take it all apart, put a bigger fuse in ( which, I am certain the wiring could take the current, the only weak link would be the relay, which probably governs the fuse value).
I am hoping I can merely pop in a higher current relay and up the fuse 5 amps.
As I say, I would prefer to know exactly where both the relay and fuse are, knowing that would save me a lot of headache.
This is really more complex than it should be, back in the 70s I could just pop a fuse out of my 66 Volvo and pop another in. Everything else could take just about any zap you could put to it.
Also, the factor number for the relay would make spotting it easier too.
I appreciate the responses.
