Default Oooghhha horn install...

Oooghhha horn install.
How did you install your horn?
Did you just hook it up to where the factory horns are (for wiring too?)?
Or
Did you make a new circuit using a relay?

Where did you mount the horn?

If you have an after market air filter there's plenty of room under the new filter to mount the horn (see picture below). If not, some people mounted them where the OEM horn is but that muffles the sound pretty good. Other places to mount are in the front of the car at the center bar behind the grill and I've seen them mounted beside the left side of the computer facing downwards.

Depending on the year of your car, the 01-05 PT's have 5 spare fuses in the fuse box in the engine compartment to grab the positive voltage. I ran the negative wire inside the car to a push button on the dash and then grounded the button. That means the horn is always hot but not grounded till I hit the button inside. NO relay needed.

Horn underneath the air filter.



Red square spring loaded push button in the dash for the Ahooga Horn. Other lighted switch is for undercar LED lights.

Have many guys just used the stock wiring and just replaced the factory horn with the oooogahhh?

BTW thanks for your info!

The Ahooga Horn is 12V just like the OEM horn so it should work with the regular wiring. I'm not sure how much room there is under the inner fender for the Ahooga Horn. You'll find out when you take the inner fender off. I've seen a picture with dual air horns in place of the OEM horns so the Ahooga Horn should fit.

With the stock air filter a good place for the horn is under the plastic at the base of the windshield where the wiper motor is. I press fit the horn using stiff pieces of foam.
I did use a relay, and an inline fuse - took power right from Battery.
I put the horn switch button in the steering column shroud near the wiper stalk

I had my dad install my ooga horn. He was able to put it where the factory horn was using the factory bracket and wires as well.
