5 amps is that a typo or is that for each horn? The wolo horns{2] needs a single 15 amp fuse or a 7.5 amp fuse for each horn. Either way your fuse is too small

Those horns draw a total of 6 amps. 3amps each. http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/ ... _200315507 So, yes you need a higher rated fuse. I would start with a 10 amp.

As stated, I do not know the current rating of your horns, but I would be really surprised if they required less than 5 Amps!! I suspect there is no problem with your horns, your fuse is just too small for them, you should replace it with a 10 or 15 amp fuse (assuming your wiring is okay for 15 amps).

Is your fuse for the relay power or from the relay contacts to the horn?

Fiberthree I install a T-tap connector to the bike horn wire then I ran a wire to the relay from the relay to the fuse plate box. The way I can use the bike horn switch and if the Wolo 320-2t horn stop working the bikes horn will take over. Also to all that HELPED me with the fuse and said to use a 10/15amp fuse I install a 10amp fuse I also up grade the aftermarket LED lights and is holding up thank again.
