Whatever you do, dont let your installer make you think of a capacitor for a setup like this!

ya I thought that this should be quite an easy setup to install... but seems like I went to the wrong place.. but is there any problem with fitting a capacitor?

Anyway, I have told the shop owner that if this problem doesn't go away, then I am not going to pay for the amp and the wirings.

There is no problem in fitting a cap! It's made to help high end installs. But for your install, adding a cap is not necessary. Not at all needed. The installer is just trying to sell you a cap. That's all!

Yeah man it will be something simple like impoper grounding of the amp or botched up connections. Thats why you dont need a capacitor in your particular setup.

Until the probem is correctyl diagnosed it wont go away so figure out what needs to be done... the cap might not sort it out!!

I think adxing, you need to get better quality RCA cables and you need to lower the gain on your amplifier.
That should sort you out.

all the technical gurus plzzzzzzzz help me as to what may be the cause of this problem?
some kind of horns are known to create electric interference, which may be audible through speakers. Check this thread, may be you are facing the same problem....

Today morning, there is no such strange sound.

Please enlighten me as to what may be the cause of this problem and whats the remedy?
frm all speakers? and all max vol?

as Sam said, check the gain, did you use good RCA? and is this a whistling type of sound? Is the sound ther when the car's parked/engine off.

I suspect the horn relay is defective. a cap across the horn relay is just band aid better to change the relay itself.

Right on... ALL Santros manufactured between November 2005 and March 2006 (this is the range I have seen thus far, may be more) have this issue. If its just the "pat pat" sound and only when you press the horn, then YES, its the horn relay. Change the relay.

jkdas, its coming when souding the horn...and its not a whistling sound.
Also, it comes even when the volume is pretty low.

No sound when car is parked/engine off.

Also the mechanic suspected something wrong with the RCA cable...he tried 3 difference RCA cable, but still the same problem.

So, I suspect the problem may be with the horn relay...I will try to change that and see if the sound goes away.

Gunbir man, you are spot on...
thats exactly what is happening. Can I get the horn relay changed from the company? How much does a horn relay cost?

Since the audio setup was done outside, will the dealers change the horn relay free of cost? How do I convince them to do it as part of the warranty?

In the worst case, how much I need to pay for a new horn relay?
