    I need help with my horns

    i have a wrx 02.... well i just noticed that my horn doesnt work.. i think the problem is the harness or wiring from the relay to the horn......cuz when made my friend press the horn inside i heard a click sound in the relay....which means that the relay is getting power but its not getting power from the relay to the horn....do u guys know any other way to fix the horn....if u guys know any schematics that shows the wiring...that will be great..thank you for your time.... shootzzz

    a horn is a very basic device. there's a 12V, and ground wire.
    Have you tested the wires at the horns to determine that you are indeed getting both ground and 12VDC at the horn, when the button is depressed?

    If you are, I'd replace the horns, rather than try to fix them. Replacements are very inexpensive. YOu could also use the opportunity to go with Hellas, or whatever you'd like, at that point.

    start tracing it back, then. I'll try to find a schematic.

    When I installed my Hellas, I was having the same problem. It turned out that I had pinched a wire in a blind location and the signal was arcing. Maybe it's a short?

    Yes one, if you plan on using the relay which I did.
