Default Lights and Horn question

My 01 DS has a light kit installed, does anyone know if these are running off 16 volts or if there would be a voltage reducer? The reason I ask is I need to put a horn in and I am not sure how to get it at the 12 volt source with out buying a reducer. TIA

You could have any number of things....only you can tell. You might have a reducer, lights that are on 16 volt or possibly lights that use the whole pack voltage.

Thanks, Didn't know if there was a standard. So if I don't have a voltage reducer, what's the best way to wire a horn? Most are 12volt, will they handle 16volts or do I wire it to 8volts?

The horn will handle many many volts test it and see which voltage sounds the best to you ....You can't hurt it

Use a volt meter at your lights, then you will know what voltage they are operating at.

Good idea Mike It is also a good idea to look around under the seat and try to identify each and every component in the electrical system for future reference. i.e. resistor, coils, controllers, v-glide, solenoids, motors, voltage reducers,Gas motors, ...Gas Motor!?
