The horn goes off whenever John drives his wife's car. Did Tom and Ray help solve this mystery?
Stump the Chumps! John called in a while back because the horn in his wife’s car would blow at random times, but only when he drove it. His wife suggested the car had a “lard-butt indicator” and his weight was making the horn blow. Tom and Ray didn’t have a good explanation, but said his weight shouldn’t have been a cause. John says other Car Talk listeners said it might be the key he was using. He changed keys and the problem went away. Wrong Answer.
