Default Need help, hella horn problem.

Hey guys, so my hella horns have been wired up and working great for several months now.

And yesterday they stopped working right. Now only the horn on the right works and it sounds pretty weak and pathetic.

They are wired to a button, instead of the stock horn. My friend did the wiring and i dont know much about wiring/electrical.

But i just checked the ground and went through all of the wiring and didnt see anything that looked bad..


Any ideas? Please? the sooner the better.

Thanks!

have you checked all of the connections? wire to horns, wire to the factory harness in the front bumper area, all connections on the relay wherever it's mounted, and on the back of the button? Maybe something is good and corroded or a loose wire on one of those connections.

Did you verify the connections for oxydation? Sometimes the connection may look clean from the outside but when you unbolt it there is oxydation and this can prevent the current from flowing constantly.

It may also be your horn that is becoming defective. If I was you, id start by trying another horn to see if the problem is the horn of the wiring.

Hope this helps

To verify that the left horn is still good tie a jumper wire to the positive battery post and touch it the power side of horn. It should work if the ground and horn is ok. Also check the other side to see if there is a bad power connection to the horn. The trouble kind of sounds like there is a bad power connection to the horns and the left side has a lower impedence than the right side, so the right side works a little bit.

I double checked everything and didnt see any obvious problems. I unplugged and re-plugged in the connections on the back of the horns a couple times, honked them again and only one worked a little bit still..

And then yesterday they started working fine again. Weird.
