WK2 Horn Relay ?

I've searched all forums, with no result... Does anyone know if the 2014 WK2 has a horn relay ?

The reason I ask, is that I am installing the Hella Twin Tone horns, which come with their own relay, but will be unnecessary to use, if the Jeep already has a horn relay. Thanks

Re: WK2 Horn Relay ?

Your 2014 does have a relay that is part of the circuit board on the Totally Integrate Power Module or (TIPM) the TIPM uses what are called virtual relays.

The relay that came with the Hella horn is more than likely included just in case you were adding horns to a car that did not have any horns or if you were adding them in addition to your existing horns.

If you are adding them along with your existing horns then you would use the relay to power the hellas while using the existing horn out put wire to trigger the new relay.

If you are replacing your original horns with the hellas then just power them with the existing wiring that your car comes with now.

I hope this helps
