Default Horn Issue

Howdy all…

Does anyone have any issues with their horn? I seem to really have to smash the horn down to get it to honk. Sometimes it takes three of four presses to get it to work, each one progressively harder.

Its impossible to "tap" the horn as in to do a quick honk to let someone know the light is green.

Thoughts?

My horn didn't work at all. Of course I didn't find that out till after I left dealership. Took them a half hour to fix. Yes you do have to press down hard on the horn for it beep.

also it has a lag due to being computer controlled, so when you press it takes a bit of time to honk, every try to give a courtesy honk, you can't on these trucks.

I have heard this before but mine does not seem to have any lag. Do you think this was corrected for the 2013+?

I don't think it is corrected, but if you "practice" it you can get it to work.

I am getting pretty good at the courtesy honk and my is 2013, but when I first tried it sounded like I was mad at the person I was honking at.
