I live in a cold state! Anyway my horns freeze all the [email protected] time!

I got it in for the second time for this problem and this time they said there is a new design for the horns! There is a different sytle of horns and a new place to mount them!

So if you have any problems with the horns sounding different after the smallest puddle or freezing and getting no sound at all! There is a fix go see you dealer when it is happening and they should be able to find this fix!

I'll try to get more info like TSB number when the put the new horns in next week!

out of? The horns not working?! Typical little crap that makes dealing with this car a pain! 33 days in the shop since January 19th and counting! 30 days in 1st 12 months in Alaska and the car is considered a LEMON! Already submitted my dispute settlement board paperwork!

Exactly, it's the small stuff. Things like a horn freezing, so many things were left "unfinished" (IMO). I'm jumping on the Lemon train as well. My flywheel/clutch/pressure plate problem is so bad it's laughable.

Hmmm, the rainy season is just getting started here in CA, I'll have to see if I still have a horn in April. If not, this is going to come in pretty handy!
