By the way, they are aftermarket modern horns.

Looks like what I need but....the relationship between the 85 terminal and the 30 terminal. Is it saying I need to jumper the two terminals?

Yes, although you could power each one separately from different circuits.

The relay is a Bosch relay. The attached is similar to Rusty Rod's diagram, but shows the internals of the relay.

Hooked everything up per all the info I got and the horn continually sounds. Figured if was something in the steering column. Took it apart and stripped it. The horn still sounds! WTH?
