I am trying to replace my original car horn. When I hook up the replacement horns, using the screw that the original came with and placed it back in the same hole, I blow my 20 amp fuse. It blows when I try to tap on the horn.

The replacement works when it is outside of vehicle.

I have even put electrical tape on the back of the horn so not to touch the metal frame, but still I blow a fuse.
Do you

Hi:

When you try it outside of the car, are you using the same power supply as in the car? If not, the horn may be drawing more power than the circuit (inside the car) can provide. Make sure the wire that supplies the power isn't shorting out on something. If it isn't, I would return the horn and get a different one to try.

Let me know if you have any specific questions.

Joe
