RE: [DML] Electrical Issues - Volt Meter - Horns dead when wet



Dan , What do you mean by a  ( Tick ). Water splashing on a belt will cause
it to slip and loose charge for a second. 
Horns most likely got water under the diaphragm, so it needs to be taken off
and dried out ASAP so it won't rust. A wax impregnated cloth wrapped around
the opening of the horn will stop any further problems.

Subject: [DML] Electrical Issues - Volt Meter - Horns dead when wet

Drove my car from Houston to Denver over the weekend and had a couple 
of issues to ask the group about....
 
1. I noticed while driving that anytime the fans or any other 
accessory use(Horns) the volt meter had a very noticeable tick. It 
was only momentary but certainly noticeable. 
- Newly rebuilt alternator (100 volt from a 1985 Eldorado - been 
running this unit for about 20 years). 
- Specialty Auto Fan Fix 2X2, (fan fail light works when fans are 
running). 
With this symptom is there a ground or other issue that I should be 
concerned with?

2. Unrelated issue, it was raining all across northwest Texas and in 
one small town I hit a "relatively" big water puddle. Relatively big 
for a lowered Delorean meaning it was about an inch deep, kidding 
really! This caused my Horns to stop working until they had a chance 
to dry out. 
Is there something I can do to correct this problem dielectric 
grease, loose grounds suggestions?

Side note, at every gas station along the route the car drew a crowd; 
I was accommodating and had at least 10 kids sit in the driver's seat 
having pictures taken.

Thanks in advance for your help.
