I went with a Hella universal kit ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ) and added a Honda Horn audio adaptor ( https://amzn.to/3bPK5Rl ) . Some horn kits have Honda specific connectors for fast plug and play easy connecting without splicing wires Hella has some many of the car manufacture plugs ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ).

The issue with kits with specific car manufacture specific plugs is the possibility of being positioned in the wrong side of the horn. 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 original harness length.

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. After connecting the horn test it out prior to finishing up the cable management.

Enjoy your new louder 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.

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!

Honda Clarity Vlog – Tip#007: Check Engine Lights @ 11,000 miles – 12 Volt Reset!

Welcome Honda Clarity Tip and Vlog (RTwC) episode 007! I am at 11,053 miles and 7 months of ownership with my Honda Clarity PHEV. This morning I got Check Engine Light (CEL) and other systems sending alerts on my dash board. Brake system problem, Hill assist problem, Engine error, TMPS sensor problem and other issues popping up.

I have full charge on my PHEV battery and a full tank of gas. The temperature was 74 degrees so it wasnt cold. I drove it around the block and the CEL light did not clear. So having to go to work, I opened the hood and disconnected the 12 volt battery for 5 minutes. With most cars this will reset or have the car’s computer clear some codes to recheck what was wrong. While under the hood, i checked the oil, brake, coolant, and windshield liquid levels. Everything was a good levels except the wind shield fluid (https://amzn.to/2K1tqvB ) which i added more. I closed the hood and drove the Honda Clarity around the block and the CEL lights cleared and never came back. UPDATE* It has not reappeared even after 200 miles of driving. If in doubt bring it to a Honda Dealer to check!

The Honda Clarity is a pretty great car with good designed an comfortable ride. I believe Honda programming my have its initial bugs as this was the first model year.
Among other things I will be driving her as a commuter care and a roadtrip car, as I got all weather mats for her ( https://amzn.to/2VIaxBh ) which were great with all the road trips!
