Even if it did work, it sounds so lame you probably wouldn't use it anyways

Re: my horn doesn't work

Well then your the first person to have a horn problem..I have no clue maybe loose wiring.

On a side note I don't what it is with people complaining about how the horn sounds. Who cares it whether it goes beep or plays the Dukes of Hazard tune?

well just for the heck of it i popped the fuse panel and noticed a 15A fuse just laying in a little storage compartment. then i took a look at the manual to find that the horn takes a 15Amper and its fuse housing is empty. i popped it in a whoala - the week indeed horn now works. my VW horn had more meat to it than this one. the fuse robots must have been hung over or something that day.

Who cares, you ask? When a cell phone chatting soccer mom in an essuvee with blind spots the size of Ohio is encroaching on my lane, I do!

That's why I installed a Fiamm low tone in addition to the stock horn. Now I can actually get someone's attention.

Suit yourself. Don't worry about me.

usually when i am mad i hit the onetouch down buttong for my window

lean out a little to get a good projection

and yell

"chicken phukers"


gets the job done, and if that does work a downshift with some gas pedal does the trick in any situation :)

the title of this thread should be changed to, I didnt check my fuses.
getting tired of having a stock issues sub forum that makes it look like these cars are junk. I have seen on more than one forum, people linking to this sub forum and saying, see I knew it was too good to be true, that car has tons of issues.
seriously.. change the topic to something that doesnt indicate a problem that was never a problem. a loose fuse does not equate to a poorly built car.

It is true the horn is weak and hardly audiable but at the same time it is a needed item and could save you in a bad situatuon. Go get it fixed

:lmao:
did you read the thread? The fuse wasn't in place. He finally looked in the fuse box, saw the fuse had fallen out and put it in, end of story. Hardly a broken horn.
not trying to be an ass, but dang...

Had a little old lady driving a boat from the '70s move into my lane, no signal, didn't even look over. I honked, she did the huh,what,oh dear and got back over narrowly missing my baby. The horn does its job so I don't care what it sounds like.

It's the reason I don't come here as often anymore, too much whining about little things. And I agree this and a lot of other threads SHOULD NOT be in the stock issues section. This section should be reserved for known issues that are rather widespread, not isolated and non-events like a loose fuse.
It also looks like the mods aren't paying attention to the comments either, it's business as usual. Threads that should be stickied aren't and posts are continually being put in the wrong locations. I tell myself it's just a forum and should be taken with a grain of salt.That works.
