Question Clifford alarm stopped making sound



Hey,

My car is equipped with a Clifford alarm and the sound stopped working last week after I washed the car (on my driveway, I doubt it had anything to do with it).

So basically now it works just like a remote to lock/unlock but if the alarm goes off, there is no sound, just lights flashing. Also sound when locking/unlocking is gone.

It has 2 fuses I can see right by the horn that makes the sound, and both seem to be fine, alarm will not work at all if I pull either out.

Help!?

P.S. You may see one of my old threads that said it stopped working all together, but all I needed was a new battery for the remote...

Flaviu

Its the alarm Horn.
Mostly likely You got enough water inside of it to damage it.
test it out, Cut the 2 wires going to it and put a 12V source to it.

I hope I didn't break it...that's strange my hose is no where close to the water in a commercial carwash.
