Horn doesn't work!
 
It's been an off and on thing, but now it stays mostly off or has a very anemic cough when I press the steering wheel horn button. Should I replace the horn anyway and see if that's it, or could there be something more sinister going on? I also want to add a horn that goes "oogaa"! That will have a separate button, and I'll do it later. Has anyone had the horn go out on them?

bad ground, low voltage, poor hot connection, poor connection through switch, weak or bad horn relay, weak battery, weak generator, [alternator] water ingestion in horn, or just a old worn out horn.

Intermittent problems are mostly electrical. Check your connections, clean off the corrosion at the terminals and I bet your horn honks like a Canada Goose again.

The thread title makes me think of my favorite two bumper stickers:p

"Horn broke, watch for finger" and "Keep Honking! I am reloading"

Not that these will help you fix your horn...:lol:
