I drowned out the stock horn in a mud hole a while back..I have tried replacing it with a model that has two male connectors but it just wont work. I've replaced the relay and i AM getting power at the female connectors when the pressure switch is activated. What to do?.. am i just connecting hot/ground wrong?

You get 12v, have ground, but the horns don't work? Sure you have power? Try a test light?

I like the 15buck harbor freight honkers actually.

thats a nice set up.. saw that one at auto-zone.


anyways. yes I have power (12V) and ground.... I have used both a volt meter and a light bulb test.


im about ready to duct tape a hand-held air horn from a football game onto the mirror.

I was just doing some soldering on wires, and I realized perhaps it does matter with the gauge of the wire I should use for the wolo air horn.

the section I need to extend on the truck is 19 strand? Is this correct and if I solder 14 (will use for the wolo) to the 19, will I be ok?

umm, what gauge wire? counting strands is not how wire gauge is determined. Gauge is the conductor diameter.

BTW, start your own thread. hijacking threads is poor form. (not that that hasn't stopped me) :toothless

In a thread where the original poster hasn't posted in 3 months, it's not really a hijack. :shrug It's "searching", which is :thumbup Much better to continue an old thread than start a new one & axe all the same questions again. :twak
ACK! my bad...I didn't read the dates.

this is kinda funny hah... btw, if anyone cares.. i finally got mine to work. i was so frustrated and thought i would give it one last try before i gave up all together on having a horn. i played with different grounds, turns out thats all it was. everything under my hood is so mud colored that i couldn't tell my grounds that i was trying to use were either painted or plastic
