[DML] Re: Louder Horns for DMC...one more question.

I think the biggest problem with upgrading the horns is that if you do
not use a horn relay you will melt the horn switch and wiring in the
steering column. Just about every modern (after 1950) car uses a horn
relay. With all the relays used in a Delorean I can't imagine why they
would cheap out and not use one for the horns! Wiring one up is no big
deal if you are familiar with automotive wiring. It should be on it's
own circuit so if it does fail it doesn't take anything else out with
it. Most safety related systems (wipers, lights, brake lights, etc)
are on their own independant circuits just for that reason, not
because of current requirements.
