Default Installing Horn Issues!

I installed original Club Car front and rear lights last week which was a breeze due to the fact that it was basically plug in and bam! the harness that leads to the headlight (under passenger wheel well) has 2 12 gauge wires coming off of them. The wires are orange and black and are supposed to be for the horn. To test the horn I purchased today, I made a direct contact to those two wires with wires from horn (+ and -) and did not work. I then inverted the wires for the heck of it and did not work. Did this with the lights on as well. Any thought while I go purchase a test light?

thx

Does the key have to be on, are the wires fused?

Is your horn a 36v horn? You won't get anything out of it if you just used 12v.

Yeah, the guy at the dealer told me it was for 48 volt! Good point, I will check online to confirm that. Thx

Just checked the horn with car battery and it scerd the heck out of me. So yeah its definitly working well considering a car battery is 12 volts. Dont understand why, if I am connecting the horn to the Club Car 2 wires coming out of the harness. Shouldnt it work if I am connecting directly? I need to get that test light.

I believe you need a voltmeter to determine if those wires are 12 volt or even hot with ground.

Just remember that the the button completes the circuit.When its off the circuit is open.Its just like locking a deadbolt on a door,when the bolt is locked and when it is open.Hope this helps.
