The horn button will earth the circuit when pressed, the symptoms you give would therefore suggest a dodgy button.

My horn is naff. My Dad has a two tone one which he said he will fit if there's space, not investigated yet. Anyone else fitted a new horn?

Fiona...Donutz electric twin horns are a standard swop for the Mazda ones and are like night and day, Sandy (mk2.5) and I both have them.

Kristoff will reply to this soon as he has just fitted an even louder one at about the same price ?17.00, I am told that the Halfords twin electric horns are good too.

I have the ?14.99-odd Halfrauds horns - and they're all you'd ever want....! :D

Except the Mazda man had to remove the front bumper to fit! :(

Or so he said, when he handed me the bill... :roll:

Fi,

I got this one:

Stobel Nautilus Twin Tone Air Horn

From Speeding do a search and it will be displayed.

It is fairly easy to fit unless you are hopeless with electrics (like me!)...thanks Richard and Dave for your help! It is a fantastic noise though, if you are the kind of person who likes that sort of thing!

BTW Phil,

Now you've become all posh and got a Mk2 you'll have to update your avatar to reflect your new status :wink:

Thanks for that folks, I will look into all options. Will have a look at what dad has, they are probably about 50 years old and huge, so there might not even be space for them, and might be a pig to fit!
