  • My Sissy Horn

    My Mercury Mountaineer is still doing great - now 280,000 miles plus, still runs great and looks pretty new when cleaned up.

    HOWEVER, whenever I honk my horn "in anger", it emits a sick sissy weak beeeeeeeep that is quite embarrassing. ANY OTHER TIME, it's a good solid manly HONK. My wife laughs at me.... it's gotten to be quite a thing. She has seen a number of times when this has happened, and she thinks it's hilarious.

    I'm trying to figure out what I do differently - I have tried simulating "an angry beep", but it always works fine EXCEPT when I'm actually angry at somebody for doing something stupid, and I want to let them know I'm hacked.

    There must be a anger sensificaiton / disgrontification circuit in the vehicle.

    Advice?

    Most likely, you're pushing it a bit differently and how you are hitting it is creating higher resistance and less power to the horn relay and that is causing less power to get to the horn.

      That is hilarious. Does it end your anger and make you laugh or make you angrier?

        It's quite a tension reliever, particularly when my wife says something like, "yeah, you really told THEM!"


        I have a feeling this is proof that God has a sense of humor.

            get a serious horn. Someone has to let the drivers know how bad they are doing.

            Sorry. I gotta go now. Someone on the internet is wrong.

              My horn is quite serious - except when I'm mad at another driver. Maybe God is trying to tell me something.
