How To Install the Wolo Bad Boy Air Horn


John: Hey guys, John, here with RealTruck.com.
Today I’m going to show you how to install this Wolo electric air horn
onto a Dodge Ram truck. Okay, guys. We all know how our factory horns sound,
something like this. [horn sounds] But we kind of want something a little
bit cooler on our Dodge truck. So that’s why we’re going to put that
Wolo Bad Boy electric air horn onto this truck. Then when we get done, we’ll
let you see what it sounds like. The first step of replacing any factory horn
is to get it out of the vehicle. I’ve gone ahead and taken this one
out so you can see what’s going on because it’s buried deep in this fender.
They’re not all in the same location. You’ll have to track down the location
of where yours is. So once we’ve got this out, what we want to do is
go ahead and unplug it. That way we can use the factory installed horn wiring
which will allow us to continue to use our horn button on our steering
wheel. What we need to do with our factory wires
because we’re going to use the factory horn button is go ahead and cut these
ends off. Then we’ll need to crimp on some of these spade style connectors
onto our wire. The reason why we need to do that is because our new horn
system has these spade ends on it for negative and positive. We need to have
something other than the original wire clips which obviously don’t
fit. Now depending on what make and model of vehicle
you have, yours may have a style like that or it may not. We’re going
to go ahead and snip these wires off of here. In this instance, because we’re
not going to have enough space in between these, what we’re going to have
to do is we’re going to have to strip this back a little bit to give us some
room to open these up where it’ll go into our new horn a little bit better. Once you get those apart, give yourself a
little bit more room and where to work with, go ahead and strip those back.
We’ll attach the spade connector which you can get at just about any hardware
store or your local automotive store. You can see these . . . they call them
factory fender plugs or something along those lines. What we’re going
to do is we’re just going to pop that out. There will be a hole there where
we can fit our new horn perfectly right in there with the bolt that
it comes with for mounting. Right now we’re going to go ahead and hook
this up. Now if you look down inside here, you can
see that these are marked plus and minus. Of course, your black is going
to be your minus or your ground, in this case. So we’re going to make sure
we plug that one into the corresponding connection spot. The other one
will go onto our positive side. So what we want to do is go ahead and pull
this body plug out of here. Don’t worry about it if you accidentally cut
it off or whatever because you’re not going to reuse it anyway. This
is the mounting bracket for our horn right here. We’re going to go ahead and
slide that up underneath there and put our bolt through. Once we have that
in place we can go ahead and finish bolting it up. Not keep in mind you
don’t need to over tighten that because it’s not going anywhere. We’ve got
it wired up. We’ve got it bolted up. Let’s go push the button and see how this
thing sounds. Okay, guys, there you have it. That’s all
it takes to install that Wolo electric powered air horn onto your car or
truck. So until next time, happy motoring.
