I just replaced my low tone horn on my 2004 Chevrolet Impala base. It worked fine for a week then today it sounds like its wearing out prematurely as if it was honked a thousand times a day or something. Worst of all, these are brand new OEM AcDelco brand I bought from RockAuto. Furthermore, I did replace the same horn in 2009 and it went out shortly about 3-4 months. I did honked it alot at that time like crazy though, which was my fault, However, could it be possible that my horn switch is putting out excessive current to make the low tone horn weak?

I have replaced my horns a couple of times ( just junk yard replacements) I live in the salt belt. I blame crappy water getting into them. So four years ago I replaced them with ones from a GrandAm They mount in a different angle,still going strong.
