What a pathetic sounding cricket-noise maker.


I peaked under the hood. 1 horn. Sounds like crap.

In the front corner where the exisiting horn is, there is a bracket

for a second horn.

Anyone add another to that bracket?

I will eventually. Can't stand the noise it makes when I hit the lock button twice on the Fob.

My plan is mount two Hela horns or find a couple for F-150 horns from a junk yard.

I do agree - does anyone think about these things before they push cars out the door ?

Put another horn in.

Went to AutoZone and picked up a Sure-Bilt Highway Blaster Low Tone horn,
close in size but a bit larger than the OEM horn. (DL136L-12V)

Removed the left headlight assembly to access the horn mounting bracket.
The bracket is V shaped, with the OEM horn on one leg, and an open leg for
the horn I added.
Horn mounts on the bracket with a 10mm nut to a stud on the back side of the horn.

The new horn came with one wire with a ground lug ring on one end, and a fast-on
terminal on the other end. I cut the ring lug off, and spliced that end into the horn harness.
I made the other lead wire out of 22Ga wire, and a lug I had in my tool box.

Next, I unplugged the horn harness connector from the OEM horn, removed the horn from the bracket,
then I removed the plug-cap on the OEM horn (luckily the horn has a 2-piece cap/plug),
and put a tinned lead into each cup of the connector plug-cap,
and re-installed the plug-cap on the horn. Mounted both horns back on the bracket.

Plugged them in, and I now have a decent sounding horn.
No more wimpy Asian-car sounding bleeper.

Took me about 1 hour.

There is an upgraded Level 3 horn kit available from Ford. It replaces the single horn with a dual horn kit.

Thanks to the great video in the Edge forum, I was able to replace my single horn on the ST with dual horns.


It only took 3 times as long as anyone else cause I really suck at being a mechanic!  Follow the video that started this thread and you will be successful.


The original poster purchased the "Level 2" horns for about $18.  FA1Z-13832-B.  They Fiamm and made in the USA.  


I saw a listing for a "Level 3" horn for $28.  That part number is FA1Z-13832-A. They are Fiamm and made in China.  I did sterilize them to kill off the Corona virus .  (just kidding).


Are they louder than the Level 2 horn?  I don't know.  They are similar in size and appearance to the cheaper horns.


BTW...I have enclosed the actual Ford procedure for removing the headlights.  They were a help.  There is a catch underneath you free by pulling the lights forward.  I did grease the catch so that next time I change a bulb, it releases easier.

Smart move!  With people listening to music at high volumes, I believe we need 2 horns so they hear us...especially living in Joisey!
