    Me too the horn is pathetic, when the wife was in the dealer the other day she mentioned that someone had called in with an aftermarket horn and had asked the service team to swap it out with the OEM one. Guess were not alone in that respect.

    Yes the horn on the CR-V is pretty rubbish.

    However, you'll be "pleased" to know that its the same crappy horn in the USA and Middle East as well! LOL

    Just get a couple of air horns off a lorry and mount them on the roof.

    I've had identical horns to this fitted to one vehicle for the last 15 years. No need to play around with relays and switches and stuff, just connect to the existing horn's wiring and place the trumpets somewhere convenient.

    If you judge there not to be sufficient space for the above, then this or similar is the kit for you.

    Check whether your original horn works through a relay. If it doesn't, consider using your original horn wiring as the switch wire for a new dedicated relay for the new horns. Use hefty wires and don't forget to put a line fuse into the direct power supply to the new relay.

    Out of interest, would an Accord horn fit the 4th Generation CR-V?

    My first car (late70's) was a C reg. (1965) Morris 1300, similar to this
    1300.

    Frequently getting carved up by others. :Rant:
    She had a pathetic horn.
    Fitted some air horns to her. :Smile:
    Still got carved up, :Rant: but I felt a little better after a blast from the air horns :Devil:

    A bit of a bracket changes and bending and they will fit, The DIY clip from College hill shows that .

    The horn is absolutely pathetic on these, even looks like a toy as it's that small

    Don't need to blow the horn much but would like to hear it properly

    Anybody got any fixes or suggestions ?

    Did I hear something about an Accord horn being a lot better ?

    Any ideas/thoughts appreciated

    Dick.

    I remember a thread about this somewhere that @TheDarkKnight took part in, maybe he can point you in the right direction.
