Default Picked up blue

Well I traveled up to Darby yesterday, on the train to go,and pick up my first cruiser... I have to say it feels amazing to drive, I think I smiled the 250 mile journey back to Cornwall!
It felt a bit like when I used to drive my old vw's around, but so much more comfortable! Think I am going to have some fun with my new purchase
Only one little hiccup so far, in that the horn worked when I started my journey, but doesn't seem to want to play any more! Any ideas?

Things to check: the horn itself, under the inner wheel liner on the passenger side. The horn relay in the Power Distribution center in the engine compartment and the horn fuse, depending on what year, probably also in the PDC in the engine compartment and lastly, the horn switch in the steering wheel.

Since you're in the UK, horn is on driver's side...

congrats on the new ride!


this is of you have an '01-'05 PT, I think this issue was resolved on the '06 up cars:
does it still have the factory radio, if so does the display come and go? If so add a ground wire under the dash... check out this thread, specifically post #9 Horn and Radio Screen Intermittent?
