Do you have a tank and compressor, or you just using one of those cheap kits that has a small electric compressor to fires straight into the horn?

Just the straight from compressor to horn kit. I also have 2 other aftermarket horns hooked up (not sure which brand, my dad flew to Wisconsin to pull them off my grandpas Jeep when he passed away, as they meant alot to us because my grandpa always switched them car to car. I also have the 2 stock horns. This combo sounds amazing.. the video doesnt do it justice.

I have been using stock horns for seven years, I use it whenever I feel like being an ahole.

...or a high-pitched sounding biznatch. I feel embarassed using the stock horn too and sometimes I question whether or not they can even hear it.

Sleek, I called DDM (extremely difficult btw) and they said the error code eliminator IS a capacitor, but they beleive its because I need the relay kit. I explained to them you have my same setup and they said to try it and I can return it in 30 days if it doesnt solve my problem. Im gonna order the error code eliminator and ill let you know how it works out.

My problem was solved with the relay, the capacitor did nothing.

The car now idles differently with the headlights on and off from the power draw... I have a feeling ill need a new battery. I currently have an Energizer 850 CCA battery.

Is your battery still under warranty?

Its got no issues right now. Just an assumption between the subs and that. Im sure it will be fine.

ughhh...I just don't get it. The stock wiring harness should have large enough wire to supply plenty of power to the HID's. All the relay is doing is taking the signal from your headlight wire to flip a relay to send power directly from the battery through a larger power wire. Just not sure why you would need it. Oh well, problem solved. That's what matters.

I will for sure!

Yeah I will get my 3m vhb tape at lowes, but I added staples because one of their stores are right next to this one lowes in my area. :lol:

edit: I bought the 3m vhb double stick tape from ebay, the lowes in my area didn't have them.
