    3939AE2A-47CF-4D64-B028-25A1AE507FEF.jpeg So today I put a new steering wheel on my car. The person before me took the horn out. So, I am trying to put it back in and hook it up. I need help. Where does the original horn mount and if anyone can give some wiring advise it would be great. Maybe wire color from column? Thank you

    The horn(2) are mounted behind the grille. The bracket bolts to the hood latch plate between the radiator and grille.

    Hopefully you can see the diagram. It's the horn circuit. This came from the '79 manual but far as I know, '80 is the same. Maybe you can download and enlarge it. If not, wire color from the column to the relay, in the fuse/relay panel, is black. Relay to the horn is green with red stripe. DSC00300.JPG

    Except that your '80 BOOK is a heck of lot easier to see than my '79 photo of the monitor screen.:D

    Any chance you can take a picture of the power window circuit?

    Thank you everyone. I finally got the wiring figured out thanks to all of you. Just need to find a set of horns.
