My 2012 Leaf had one lead grounded and the horn was supplied with 12V when the horn is pressed. There is no ground on my 2013 Leaf.aqn wrote:That's interesting. I'd like to update the wiki: can you please elaborate on why it must be done from the bottom? Are there pieces that are difficult/impossible to remove to get to the horn from above?GlennD wrote:I just upgraded my 2013 SL. It must be done from the bottom but I did not need to use ramps.
Ummm.... the horn works all the time on my 2011 SV too! It has Fiamm horns but the wiring is the stock wiring.GlennD wrote:The horn wiring has changed. It is now wired like most American cars. The horn works at all times.
"Horn ring"? Is that a ring around its mounting bolt? So the ring/mounting bolt/mounting bracket is grounded? (My 2011 LEAF gets its ground from a wired negative connection, not from its mounting.)GlennD wrote: It has 12v and the horn ring supplies a ground.
I don't know, but I would think it still has a relay. AFAIK, the stock horn on my LEAF draws 10 amps, which I think is quite a lot and needs to be switched via a relay.GlennD wrote:I do not think there is a relay anymore.
There is a foam block and lots of stuff in the way of top access on my 2013. Also the panel does not easily come off anymore.
Horn ring is siren speak from the units I repair. I guess at one time there really was a horn ring.
I suppose I could have listened for a click from a relay but I did not think about it.
