So recently I have begun to notice that the horn on my car is very feminine, people don't seem to notice it, and my mom laughs everytime she hears it. She says I need to make my horn Go Honk! Honk! instead of beep beep. So my question is how do I hook up a new horn? Do i just cut the leads off the old horn and hook the new one up? Or is there a crazy wiring schematic I have to follow to do this? Oh and whilst searching for info on this topic, I read that our cars are supposed to have 2 different sounds, I only get one. Thanks!

-Matt

The OEM horn is actually 2 horns... high note and low note. Your low note is obviously no longer working... replace that horn (with a new low note) and you should be all set

Is one side of the steering wheel one note and the other the high note? or do they play simultaneously? Thanks!

Yes seriously, I don't know much about horns, I rarely use them. If there is 2 horns and only one button, they are supposed to play at the same time? lol or is it like a pressure thing the harder you press the note changes....lol

I feel stupid right now.

A single button push (regardless of pressure) will sound both horns (2 different notes) assuming that they are both working (which in your case doesn't seem to be the case and is very common)

Hey I am 6'5'' and about 300lbs. When I am driving down the streets late at night, have to stop for a red light and see a good looking chicky-poo, My car goes beep beep and they look at the big man in the car with the little horn. Then they laugh at me. I think if my horn were more manly, they'd charge me less money...... Wink Can't blame a man for wanting to save some bills. It's all in the horn, that's the only way I know to pick up chicks. lol

My horn is real weak as well. At one point it stopped working. Then mysteriously started again. Looks easy enough too fix.

My car only had the high note when I bought it. There is actually a service bulletin for the horn ingesting water and not working. There is a water shield that snaps onto the new horn and you re-position it. Both horns are behind the pass side headlight. I would advise getting access to the hons, unplug to find out FOR SURE which one isn't working and replace it.

Bulletin No.: 06-08-54-001A

Date: November 01, 2006

TECHNICAL

Subject:
Horn Inoperative Due To Water Ingestion (Install Splash Shield On Replacement Horn)

Models:
2004-2006 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo

Supercede:

This bulletin is being revised to add the 2006 model year. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 06-08-54-001 (Section 08 - Body and Accessories).

Condition

Some customers may comment on an inoperative horn.

Cause

This condition may be caused by water ingestion into the horn.

Correction

Technicians are to install a new horn equipped with a splash shield using the following procedure:

Remove the inoperative horn. Refer to the Horn Replacement procedure in SI.

Install a splash shield, P/N 89046906, on the new horn.

Install the new horn so that it is turned approximately 90°from its original orientation. Position the opening of the new horn so that it faces toward the front of the vehicle. This will help prevent the water intrusion. Use the proper electrical connector that is supplied in the horn service kit.

Test the operation of the new horn.
