Sorry I worded this wrong. I tested the horns under the car. They work.. I meant to say how to remove the horn assembly on the steering wheel. I have the energy absorbing type. I don' t want to Pry and break anything. Hope someone can help me. ThanksI have a 1967 GTO trying to remove the horn assembly to see why the horns don't work. Can someone please tell me how to remove this so I don't break anything. Thanks
Here are some pictures maybe this will help someone help me. ThanksI've searched high and low, NO horn relay. Where do I get power on the directional switch, Looks like the green wire. Can I jump any wires on the directional switch to see if the switch is bad.I don't seem to have power there.. please help.
You're kind of going about it the hard way. As Ed mentioned, the horn wire to the switch in the column, is a ground, so "powering it up" is a world championship, bad idea. If you have no relay, then that's probably why the horn isnt working.I've searched high and low, NO horn relay. Where do I get power on the directional switch, Looks like the green wire.

I would like to jump in if I may?Service manual would come in handy here. You're correct in being careful since the 67-68 steering columns are different from any other.
Before opening up the steering wheel check the relay first.
The horn system works through a horn relay mounted on the firewall. The 67 relay has three terminals.
1. 12 volt battery supply (Red wire)
2. Ground lead that runs to the steering wheel horn switch (green wire)
3. 12 volt power lead to the horns. (Black wire)
When you push the horn button you are completing the ground circuit for the relay. Once energized, the relay contact closes and sends power to the horn. Very simple circuit.
To test the relay, apply a jumper wire from a carbody ground to the relay ground terminal (green wire). If the horn works, then the problem probably is in the steering wheel.
If not the relay may be bad or miswired. With a voltmeter confirm you have 12 volts at the relay. If you have power then the relay is bad.
