There are various types of car horns; some use the same type of technology as a speaker with a coil in a magnetic field while others use high-pressure air to sound the horn. Most car horns use electrical current from the car’s battery which is converted into audible sound. The sound is used by the driver to alert others of its route, direction, and intentions. However, like all electrical devices, the horn too can fail, but it can be replaced with either the same one or an aftermarket horn of a different quality. Also, replacing the car horn is relatively cheap and easy.
One of the things that you’ll instantly notice if your car horn is not working is that there will be no sound when you press the button, or the sound may be too low or diminishing. Some horns can also start sounding bad as they become older and will require replacement in order to prevent causing undue noise pollution on the roads. That said it’s important to buy a replacement horn that’s not too loud or one that outputs the same decibel level of sound as permitted by the municipality.
