I have both horns on the bench.
When I apply 12VDC neither one works!
The contact is totally clean and I have a good ground.
I tried a battery charger and figured it didn't have enough oomph.
But I tried both on my boat battery (that's fully charged)
Still nothing
I realize both COULD indeed be bad.............but WTF????
(I'm an avionics Tech so this really po's me) LOL
What am I missing???????????
grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr X 10 :mad:
thanks as always.

Mwaaaaaa. I got the smaller one working by removing the torx adjusting screw and soaking the beast in "watch cleaning solution".
I pressed a small screwdriver into to hole to move the metal strip a few times and applied power. With my cheezy 12VDC power supply all it did was buzz. Hooking it to a car battery,it at first made a mornfull sound. On subsequent applications of power it started working better.
Now it's good to go!
The other is still flat line.........lol
