    Long story short, my horn now sounds like a Honda horn--yeah, embarrassing! At first it would only sound like this when I locked the doors every now and then, but it is now Honda-sounding all of the time.

    What horns have you guys used when replacing yours? Just one of those generic ones from an autoparts store? I want one that sounds like the original.

    Also, it's located under the battery right?

    Thank you,

    Yeah, under the battery, or above the fender liner.
    Don't know if they still have adjustment screws on them, but that is how it was done back in the day.

    OK, and from what I read, there are two horns (high and low)? One of mine must be dead (it slowly died over the course of a year and a half).
