Horn problem
« on: April 24, 2013, 11:53:05 AM »
I can't get my horns to work. I'm getting 12v power all the way to them and the relay is working fine, but nothing at all.  Any suggestions?  It seems odd to me that both are kaput.

Robert,

If you have a good and strong +12V (these take a lot of juice) to them they both could have dirty contacts. You will need to open the cone and inspect the contact, and/or burnish them.

Good luck..!

If you ground the horns will they sound off?

Eureka!!
A quick internet search yielded this YouTube video:

It was as easy as a few sprays of PB Blaster.  Both horns are good to go!
