Drove my car through a flood -- car horn is muffled Sign In

I drove through some slightly flooded areas a few weeks ago and my car horn has been muffled ever since.

I have an '06 Chrysler Sebring -- would I just have to replace just the horn itself or will I have to replace the relay and relay connector?

My horn is inside my bumper, will this be a very hard fix?

If you can hear it do anything the circuit is probably fine so just get another. This is something I approve of used most of the time.


IDK how to access it and may be more than one? Look harder. Most are one wire and grounded by how they are mounted but never sure of anything but still likely.


Do it or it might be hard on the circuit drawing too much current. Water and cars don't mix well,

kev2 and OP: Best part about used and get your own places is you find out on a junk just how it's fastened and if lots of those zip clips that always break get some of those too while there. Used the bumper could be apart already too, snip off wire and have the pigtail too to put with more junk you may never need or then when you do can't find itWink


BTW - OP, don't purposely drive thru any water like you hear all the time. #1 is you might be surprised part way and either be a car killer or very dangerous to you!
