Q: Possible to install external car horn?

asked by on

Is it possible to install an external horn in the car so I can pass Virgina state inspection? What would be the cost and where can I get in the market?

My car has 72000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: Yes, it is possible to add an external horn...

Yes, it is possible to add an external horn, although it is not clear to me why an additional horn (in addition to the original horn) would be necessary to pass Virginia inspection. YourMechanic can perform a Horn Replacement Service on your vehicle, at your location, which should allow you to pass the inspection.
