It is not the stock horn there is another horn up under one of the wheel wells for the alarm chirp.

guys seriously. this is your vehicles horn we are talking about. Are you really going to trust a HF unit that may work when you install it but maybe not when you need it??? We aren't taling a giant savings either. Spend the extra coin and but horns from a manufacturer that specializes in making (wait for it)....Horns lol

as mentioned here I am a big fan of HF for many things but I'm not going to risk it for my cars horns to save $10 or $20

I must admit the "aa ooo ga" horn would be hysterical!

Yes, seriously, items sold through Harbor Freight these days are of very good quality and durability. I have no problem at all recommending them.

I'm sure HF apprieciates your endorsement. I'll stick with a company that specializes in automotive horns and not electronic fly zappers and a gazillion other items.

Anybody that does the ah oo ga horn please post a video up here, would love to hear them!

It's just a horn. If it stops working, I'll replace it again.

I finally got around to installing the 2-tone Harbor Freight horn.

I don't think it's really much louder, but it at least sounds like a real car horn.

The tone is 1000x times better! I should have done this a year ago to my LEAF. The horn on my 2000 Civic sounded poor like the LEAF OEM one and died after 3 years, I upgraded to a pair of hi/lo note horns from my local Fleet Farm and it sound "like a real car horn" is what I told people :D

Re: WOLO Horn Mod - Beware, Loud and CHEEEEP

I have installed a WOLO "BADBOY" small two tone horn from harbor freight (39.99). It is easy to install (only one small horn) that replaces the tiny stock horn. The important part is getting a loud horn that needs no more than a 15 amp fuse. (The Leaf horn only comes with a puny 10 amp fuse, which I increased to a 15 amp fuse with no problems. I have had it in the car for 8 months, and is nice and loud. If it breaks, I will not replace it, and put in a stock electro-mechanical horn off of a Honda Odyssey (my other car) that is really loud and annoying. I like the Honda, but I am sure that many other brands of stock SUV or truck horns are loud. Those non-air compressor, electro-mechanic horns will last forever. Any questions about installing, please PM me.?
