Horn packed up !!
« on: May 11, 2016, 07:24:35 PM »
Gone very quiet on the horn front  :013:
Would appear to be the horn unit itself, but the dealer can't fit me in till 24th (Chester), as it's still under warranty.
Anyone know what type connectors it uses. It's a two pole connector, and if I can get one within a day or so, I can bodge up another horn without having to cut wires, and obviously cock up my warranty.

I fitted a Denali Mini Soundbomb from R+G and it has spade connectors so I got a conversion kit from Nippy Normans - details in link below.  This might solve your problem.

Coincidentally I had just watched your video. I'll make some inquiries with Nippy Normans. I'd still like to know what type of connector it is though!
