View Full Version : Drowned Horn

My horn goes out, not completely - just very poor sound, like it has drowned every time it rains (twice now). Has anyone else experienced this? Where would you recommend relocating the horn to stay high and dry and still be heard?

congratulations. You have found one of the design flaws in the horn location.
It is commonly referred to as the "dead duck". Almost all of the people who have had this happen to them says it returns to normal in a couple weeks or so, depending on the weather.

I had it happen to me but with snow... had about a foot and a half on the road packed it with snow... parked in the garage and it was back to normal in 2 days

I have the same problem. Damn horn goes out all the time. I'm thinking of relocating it.

I was driving down my local motorway with a few friends and everyone started honking their horns. and I, not wanting to be left out, started honking mine and after about 7 seconds of horn blasting it was back to normal. It was still sick last night, but I gave it some nyquil and it is all better now.
Next time it happens I am going to continuously honk the horn for 15 seconds and see if that clears it.
