    And as far as the horn, I wasn't aware they had a relay; I thought relays came into play once cruise control showed up? You'll have to check the fuses in the fusebox, and the fuse links under the hood.

    Horns have relays but usually under the hood by the horns. You may have dislodged a connector under the dash.

    Apply 12 volts to the terminal that says "to ignition switch" and see if the window works. Obviouly the relay isn't used for the rear key switch thats why it will work.

    Got the relay today problem fixed. Now if I can just figure what the heck I did to my horn. I hate electrical issues.

    I'm not the only one who helped, I just provided electric diagrams; all of you who know more than I do, you deserve the credit.
