I’ve been having an issue with my Saturn L100 horn.
After an altercation with a huge log, meant to be an indicator of row spacing in a dirt parking lot, my horn no longer works properly. Even after being replaced twice, and working properly for a few days, it has reverted to a barely audible noise, akin to that of a strangled goose.
The log was low on the ground, and my car was parked at the very end of it, so it was not visible in the dark. I drove up on to it, so part of the passenger side of the front end was actually on the log. I backed off of it, and it made the front bumper pull out a bit. The next day, my horn sounded strangled and the volume of it was lower, by the second day, the horn was even softer, then just stopped making a sound at all.
I went to the autoparts store and got a replacement, which was installed. It worked properly for a few days, and then the volume started lowering, and the sound started turning screechy again.
I went to my mechanic. He replaced the horn mechanism. The same thing happened; a few days of a normal sounding horn, then the volume lowered and the sound became strained and screechy. My mechanic is at a loss to figure out why this is happening.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why this keeps occurring?
