I have a roots windtone installed and after yesterday's heavy rain in Bangalore it makes only a feeble sound. A truck guy spashed lot of water on to my bonnet and I am sure water has gone inside the horn. Do you think the horn could be damaged and needs repair or will it come alive after water drains/dries?

nirmal: remove your horn from the car and place it near 100W tablelamp, it would be fine.

Thanks Panky for the tip. I removed the horn and turned it up side down and water poured out. It has started working already, but still slightly feeble. Dont have a 100W bulb. Hence using a hair drier.

The horn was behind the front grill and it was placed with its vent up. I see chances of water going in again in Bangalore rains. I plan to point the vent down when I fix this back? Is this ok? Will it affect the sound of the horn as it will be pointing down?

I bought Stebel Magnum horns from JC Road alongwith relay this Saturday for 900 bucks. But the relay makes a "clicking sound" when horn is used. I got to know that this is because I have amplifier in car for ICE which causes the "clicking" and a solid state electronic relay instead of normal relay should solve this issue.

Has anyone used this solid state electronic relay in car? How much does it cost and where is it available?

Please help.

I have FIAMM Horn, in Pair , Installed in my Indica, and they sound very loud and Macho, good enough the clear the road. but the typical installation Location is very bad in Indica, that the horn sound inside so high enough to scare away my 5 month old daughter.

So last week I moved them in front, while taking two risk. One, they are very low in position now, more prone for water damage, though pointed down. Second, for loose wire or adjustment, whole bumper has to screwed open, will take lots of time and DIY is tough.

But In cabin sound/noise is reduced to half, or even less, now.
