12 volt relay (4 pin) connection for twin elect. hooters

Can anyone assist with the corresponding connection points for the following relay pin references: 30; 85; 86; 87 (2off).
I am replacing an old single (piezo) hooter with a twin electric set of hooters which is supplied with a 4 pin relay. The enclosed wiring diagram does not explain the connections to the relay clearly. The numbers may be of German origin (Bosch?).
Thank you.

Assuming you know what and How a relay is supposed to do its thing.....

85 and 86 are the Coil feeds, 87 is the power feed in, and 30 is power out....

If not....

A relay is a small electromagnet that uses a small amount of current to operate a device that uses significantly more current to operate.

2 things must be present to operate any DC electrical device....A positive and a negative

85 and 86 would get a positive and a negative, respectively, and create an electromagnet. This electromagnet would then act upon another set of contacts (30+87) to close the internal switch and send power out.....

Hooters???? Im assuming Horns?

We need some more info.....Is the hooter grounded to the body and a Positive supply added to operate it?
