Horn

I just bought the 2014.5 interstate sprinter and the only thing I am disappointed with is the HORN. When my daughter pressed the horn I suddenly looked over and was totally embaressed. I walked over to my garage and pressed the horn on my Vespa Scooter and they sounded the same. So, I would like to know if anyone has installed the HELLA horn and how easy it can be installed. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Replacing the horn is easy, but not simple. Simply remove the old horn, bolt the new one in its place, and connect the wire to it. If you want to give the little old lady that pulled out in front of you a coronary, you can install a compressor and train horn...

I have Hella Supertones on my motorcycle - excellent. They are loud, and should easily fit inthe engine compartment. If you can do basic mechanical/electrical tasks, you should have no problem installing them.

Would one need to swap out the horn fuse for a larger one as part of the install? One would expect a larger horn (or dual horn) to draw more amps.

If the fuse needs to be upgraded so would he wiring. Shouldn't do one without the other. Best to try read the specs on the replacement you want to try and see what it draws then decide. But, in any case pretty basic in the whole scheme of things.

The Hellas work just fine on a 15A horn circuit.

Bob,
Nice horn. What kind of stuff do you do to keep that engine compartment so clean? Jim

Thanks. Your results are much better than just a power wash with out the Simple Green. I also agree with the clean bit. Jim
