Am I good or what!



I got tired of having to be in the truck to honk my train horn. Now I can just sit back, watch and laugh as I scare the living crap out of everyone.

All I had to do was get a keyless entry kit and wire up the trunk release button to activate the horn solenoid. I got this kit for $40 at Autozone.

Then, I had to add a relay to the trunk release wire because it was a ground side switch and I needed a load side switch.

I used to have my old horn setup wired to the stock horn wire, when I pressed the panic button it would blast them like the regular horn. It was pretty fun, but now I have my new setup on a momentary switch.

Yeah, good at using the wrong size terminals for that wire lol. Are they really crimped on good enough? I'd hate to have one pop off...

Don't worry, they're not goin anywhere. I folded the wire back on itself like 3 times so it fit just right, and..... that's all we had right then.
