Berlingo Horns
#11
When I was a kid my uncle had a PA horn mounted on his car roof and a mike a bit like a CB PTT one (maybe it was one). He had great fun telling other drivers very audibly what he thought of them!

You can use the existing connections to the horn, parallel off them to drive a relay coil, then for the output contacts just run a fused supply off the main engine bay supply / battery / piggyback at 20A to one of the output contacts, and the other output contact to the Stebel then return the new horn negative to a good ground. If you want to switch out the beefy one, just run the negative from a ground inside  the cab through a switch and out to the new horn negative.

That way you only pass a ground wire through the bulkhead and if it ever chafes, the horn will still work and it's super safe.

I'd have to draw that to see whats what.

I didn't realise that Stebel did so many different type!

Had a quick look for my horn late yesterday, i know it's at the front left somewhere but dammed if i can find it.

Down the front on the driver's side, behind the bumper bar in the engine bay I'm sure.

I'll draw a circuit on my schematic CAD system once I get to work today and post it up as a PDF for you.

All horn circuits are switched-ground, so it would work really well that way and let you have OEM horn, or both together.

Cheers for that, look forward to it.

Here you go mate:

The relay (marked U) has 2 pins for the 12V DC coil and 2 or more pins which are normally open contacts (marked N/O) - those close when the coil is powered.

You can get a simple relay with a 12V DC coil and only one pair of N/O contacts rated at 20A DC switching.

I didn't edit the relay component pins to mark them N/O hence the description to make it clear. If the one you get is a changeover relay, it will have a pin marked COM and two pins marked N/O & N/C - use the COM and N/O pair.

Ah, but does one route the loom to the left or to the right, Sir?
