horn problems!!

Hello, I have a 1984 944 auto. The issue I am having is that the horn will not operate. When I press down the horn pad I can here the relay clicking. I replaced the 12v relay with a 40v relay and I hit the horn. It sounded for a second and that was It, back to the clicking relay. The horn in the car are brand new. Also, as long as I have owned the car I haven't been able to get both horns to operate. Just one pitch coming from them.I have checked all the grounds and they are all O.K. Every time I fix one thing on this car another one arrises. The fun of owning a 944 I guess!! Thanks in advance for all your help!

I had a similar problem, turns out that both of my horns were pretty badly deteriated. I replaced them both, and everything works great now. Sounds like you've already covered that. You might have to trace the wiring between the horns and relay for a short.

don't waste your shifting hand to honk your horn, drop it into gear and pass them...

yea out here, they drop rocks off bridges, housewives burn their hubby's cars, kids build racers to crash them and the girlfriend still gets a ride home, old people drive their car just to say they can, rich people fill up their suv's and complain about the price, the modern man invests in marbles.
