Horn

I dont like my horn and I have a another one from a older car, I want to either replace the stock one with the other horn or just add it along with the stock horn. Would it be fine to just wire the other horn in with the stock one? I would think that is would, but I just thought I would make sure first.

bubba that didnt make much sence but I think I know what your said, I think my horn is from a 89 camaro and I have another from some type of motor cycle that used a car horn.

I dont have the money for a train horn, I just have these lying around and thought I would try since I dont like my current horn.

I will let you know how it comes out, im planning on doing it tomorrow or the next day.

Rather than taking the chance on blowing the fuse tap into the wire going to the horn run it to a SPST relay term 85 and ground term 86. Then run a new fused power line from the Bat to term 30 and run term 87 to the new horn.
