Re: Fiat 500 2017 - Where is the Horn?

I haven't yet looked under my Abarth, but going on the view from above, I guess space is going to be tight.

On the subject of fitting one, obviously run it from the battery via a relay, but what size fuse on the live feed?

Would have to see what the current draw/rating is on the compressor

Re: Fiat 500 2017 - Where is the Horn?

On my last diesel hack I added twin saucer horns 139db each. The wee toot of a horn just didn't cut it. Cheap from Amazon, Chinese, boy did they waken other drivers up who for one reason or another did not seem to notice me... When my hack was written off, I took these off & are now in my garage, come the good weather I may add therm to my latest daily driver.

Says "absorbed current equal or less than 18A" for the 12v Nautilus range.

Re: Fiat 500 2017 - Where is the Horn?

Yep. 20a fuse. Did try a 15a and it worked for a while, but blew while "demonstrating" how loud it was to an unsuspecting friend. 20a was still working when I drowned the horn last winter.
(Hint: fit it as high as possible and away from direct spray)
(Second hint: they don't like unbridged fords that are running much higher than normal)
