How to Upgrade Honda “MEEP” Horns without wire splicing on my Honda Clarity

How to Upgrade Honda “MEEP” Horns without wire splicing on my Honda Clarity . After honking several times at distracted drivers with the weak Honda MEEP horns, I decided to upgrade my Honda Clarity with louder deeper horns.

I didnt like the Meep of the factory disk horns so I upgraded to Hella
HELLA 011225831 Black 12V BX Trumpet Horn Kit(Universal Fit) (
https://amzn.to/35Sf9Mq ) with a Honda horn converter plug harness cable so i didnt need to splice the wire. https://amzn.to/3oVB1y4 . I needed to make a terminal connector step down converter ( https://amzn.to/39GLKGp ) to make the harness fit with the Hella.

I didnt like the Meep of the factory disk horns so I upgraded to Hella
HELLA 011225831 Black 12V BX Trumpet Horn Kit(Universal Fit) (

For those who dont want to deal with splicing wires or buying relays. I went with a universal kit and added a Honda Horn audio adaptor. Some horn kits have Honda specific connectors for fast plug and play easy connecting without splicing wires Hella ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ) and SEINECA Automotive ( https://amzn.to/35VKcaj ) sells car manufacture specific horns.

The issue with kits with specific car manufacture specific plugs is that they are positioned in the wrong side of the horn, and your car may not have enough wiring harness to connect the plug. This happened with my Honda Clarity as the cable did not reach the horn plug. It needed another 3 inches of length. The SEINECA kit ( https://amzn.to/35VKcaj ) was also 125+ dB and was very large horns and did not fit the area of the Clarity.

Universal horn kits are more flexible as you can buy an adaptor cable specific for your Honda or other car manufacture. Typical adapter cables are about 3-4 inches in length. The universal horn kit I choose was the Hella Trumpet Hi / Low Horn 113dB – Universal Kit. They had Honda specific connectors but I got the universal fit.

I also ordered a Honda Civic horn adaptor( https://amzn.to/3bPK5Rl )with 2 prongs to match my Honda Clarity. Some other model Honda have single prong as they ground from the mounting bolt to the metal of the car.

The only issue of my Hella Trumpet horns ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ) and 1/4 inch terminals were larger than my 3rd party adapter. I had to make a F2 to F1 adaptor ( https://amzn.to/35TqYSV ) , by using a 16 AWG 1/4″ Female connector terminal from my terminal assortment kit ( https://amzn.to/3sCCewq ) and some electrical tape. I typically use Plastidip in a can ( https://amzn.to/39ImUpu ) to insulate my electrical terminals but the can dried out.

You will need a a flat head screwdriver for the plastic clips that cover the paneling, 12 MM socket for the mounting bolt, and a 10 mm socket wrench for adjusting the angle of the horn mount.

To remove the Honda Clarity front cover you need to remove the 3 plastic clips, the pull the cover from the side edges straight up out of the fender clips, replace the original horns, disconnect the plugs , and replace with the new plugs and horns, then test it out. There should be no need for any other wiring. After installing and testing, replace all the clips and covers. Remember that the 4 clips have need to be repositioned on to the cover.
Enjoy your new louder horns!

“NO BATTERY” – How to replace your Cordless Phone batteries- ( VTECH LS6425 “NO BATTERY” Fix )

So VTECH LS6425 Cordless phone is coming up on 5 years and works as well as it did new. That’s good, but one of the handset batteries says “No Battery” meaning i need to fix it with a new replacement battery BT183482/BT283482 2.4V 500mAh Ni-MH Cordless Phone Battery ( https://amzn.to/2LaYtbu ) for the Vtech LS6425 Cordless phone system ( https://amzn.to/2KOMS23 ) .

This battery also works with the Vtech other LS and DS models: VTech, DS6401, DS6421, DS6422, DS6472, LS6405, LS6425, LS6426, LS6475, and LS6476.
I also checked my other 3 cordless phone handsets but they were still holding charge.

All you need to do is slide off the back cover of the handset. Disconnect the mini plug. Note the red and black power wire indicators. You need to match it the same with the replacement battery. The plug only fits one way, if it doesnt you got the wrong plug or battery.

After pushing the plug back in, run the wire so you can place the battery flush against the back of the phone. Be careful not to bend the wire too much. With that you are done! Place the unit back into the handset charger for a few hours and check the battery status later.

Review: FURminator Medium / Long Hair deShedding Tool for Cats

I just got this FURminator Medium / Long Hair deShedding Tool for Cats ( https://amzn.to/3rBMKnf ) Btw, my Youtube vlogs and reviews may also have associated affiliate links to products that may earn from qualifying purchases. For more pet gift ideas, visit my SterlingW Amazon Store: https://www.amazon.com/shop/sterlingw

I love how effective it is with helping my cat shed his old under coat fur. I got a lot of dead fur from him and effectively grooming him so he doesnt have to work as hard to clean himself. I wish i got this sooner as its way better than all those hair brushes that doesnt help him shed old fur.

FURejector button releases hair with ease and guards the comb.
Ergonomic handle for comfort and non slip. Just rake it along the cat to remove dead fur and old under coat.
