Default Weak horn sound
first time post. 1985 ram custom 100. It didn't pass state inspection, horn sound is very weak. I looked for a relay but couldn't find one. If I connect the horn directly to the battery the sound is normal. I thought about adding a switch just to get thru the inspection. Any help would be appreciated.

the relay for the stock horn is under the dash in the fuse panel.

Thanks for the info. I put a new relay in and still the same problem. If I attach a jumper to the horn form the battery it works fine. If I fine the problem I will let yu know.

have you tried testing what the voltage is at the relay? you could possibly install a relay under the hood that is activated by the stock horn wire. a aftermarket relay would take less power to activate than the horn would use.
