I"ve seen this done and this is how iI want mine set up. I just can't figure out how to make it happen!

ideally I want to have it so my train horn work with my factory steering wheel horn. i want to install a switch to switch back and forth from regular horn to train horns. i am guessing a simple 3 way on-off-on switch will do the trick there. i just need to know what wire i am tapping into for the factory horn! I just cant seem to find that data. so I am hoping someone here has done it, or can tell me what wire ti use!

thank you!

train horns

Well I figured it out myself, and did it quite nice! I think it is even a better set up than most do!

I set it up to the factory horn. I did a 3 way switch mounted on the dash. This way one position is factory horn. The other is train horns only. Both work from the factory horn on the steering wheel. I just like that they work independently, I know a lot of people run them to go off at the same time, and I didn't want that.

i did mine with a single switch on the dash to turn the compressor on, with a small signal wire to a relay by one of the electric horns. when i turn on my compressor it switches the relay from normally closed which runs the electric horn to open to run the solenoid for the air horn, all through the steering wheel with only one switch

Mine is all on one switch too... Very simple, up is train horns, down is factory horn. One of my favorite mods! Like handing a chins a loaded gun! Blasting people all over!

One of you guys should do a write up about this! I like the idea of only 1 switch but I don't know much about relays or how they work. Parts list?

As long as your not going crazy they really dont seem to care. There is a few that do have somthing to prove and love writing tickets. It all depends on the cop tho.
