The following retrofitting will now be shown using the example of an Audi TT/RS and a Grand Cherokee jeep. The instructions can also be used in conjunction with other vehicle models. Diagrams, pictures and descriptions serve only for the purposes of explanation and representation of these instructions and therefore cannot be used as a basis for the repair/conversion work.
Before starting the retrofit, the following points should be observed and, wherever necessary, carefully checked:
- Take time to thoroughly read the mounting instructions enclosed with the product
- Using the technical data available, calculate the power consumption of the super-tone horns
- Then armed with this information, inspect the onboard wiring and safety features of the originally installed horns to ascertain their usefulness
The power consumption of the new super-tone horn is indicated with 66 watts, an amount which in a 12 volt vehicle wiring system corresponds, purely mathematically, to a current consumption with 11.0 amperes for both horns.
In the vehicle which we are taking as an example, wiring with adequate wire cross-section, power relays and a 20A fuse have been already mounted in the factory. Therefore, in the case of a permanent load, there is the guarantee of sufficient power reserves throughout the entire circuit. Changing the electrical wiring in this case is not necessary.
