Thread: help needed with horn issue

    help needed with horn issue

    I'm trying to troubleshoot some final bits on small intermittent electrical bugs that haven't been completely resolved, the first being the horn: new horn contact, fuse is good, connections to both horns are good yet when I depress the horn I hear a slight clicking sound but no horn- any ideas? The clicking would indicate that contact is being made I assume- it was working a few months back but then just stopped. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Marco

    Are you sure the horns are still good? I replaced my 68's horns maybe 10 years ago. When they both stopped working, I assumed it was a bad electrical problem--really, who would expect new horns to both fail in that span of time. When I noticed I was getting clicking from the relays, I took a chance and bought an inexpensive pair of horns on eBay and that did it...

    Hi Roger- I actually just walked in from having solved the issue- it was a bad relay! I initially thought what you suggested but it would have been odd if both horns had gone bad at the same time, that's why I then thought it was a connection issue.

    Probably your horns, both of them. Take a wire from the + of the battery (ground the other horn contact local) to the other horn pin. If horn clicks, bad horn..
