HORN NOT WORKING?

Post by Justin » 31 Oct 2009 12:47 pm

My horn was never particularly loud or confident in its delivery when it was working and has now stopped completely. Does anyone know if this would be an MOT failure? It may just be a fuse as the fuse for the horn is also the one for the radiator fan.

Am I correct in thinking its fuse number 11? (16amp)

Probably the ground - seriously, buy a airhorn and swap it in. You'll need to fit a relay but it's pretty straight forward. Stebel make good ones and for 20 quid you'll be able to scare the shit out of anyone who does something stupid in front of you.

Very, very loud.

I had a stebel nautilus on my 360 - claimed legal - loud enough to scare icecreams off children
