Horn wiring

I an installing a horn blaster train horn in my 02 F250. I need help locating the factory horn wire under my steering column. Can anyone help? Also if any of you have installed a train horn, where did you tie your power for the pump into and how did you install the in line fuse they provided?

But,,, you know you chose "General Diesel Discussions" to ask a question that, while it might be General to you, really would be quickly answered if you had put it in the proper, specific, forum (7.3 General) below.

Don't blame the membership if you put this in an obscure "General" place (that, if appropriate, would contain Thousands of post everyday....)

When I did my Train Horns, I used the wire that actually went to the electric horn (the wheel sw applies Ground, the horn relay gets "tripped" by the application of that ground) so, you would need to wire your new horns relay to react to either Ground from the wheel OR the 12v the stock horn sees (post relay) as I did. It was the 12v wire, and it is Yellow with a Green tracer.

My apologizes, thought I had posted in the right spot. Thank you for the much needed advice. In the future I will pay more attention to the area I post in. I hope to have the horns hooked up today. The only thing left is pwr to the compressor and hooking up the horn. Again, thank you for your reply.
