John
Mentzell
Centre Hall

When John drives his wife's car, the horn starts blowing at random times--sometimes a quick beep, sometimes for five minutes. It doesn’t happen when his wife drives it. John’s wife says there’s a “lard butt indicator” under the seat setting it off. Tom and Ray say the horn button is grounding out--maybe his weight in the driver’s seat is changing the geometry to cause a wire to chafe.They suggest he experiment by having his wife drive with an extra 100 pound weight.
