    Anybody know the size or where I can buy a toggle switch for these blank locations? I want to put a loud ass horn on my panel but can't find the right switch!! Every one I order is the wrong size! Thanks,

    Depending on how you use the horn (short busrt or f-off mode), scroll through the pictures on this switch which fits our dash perfectly.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/331762454130

    It shows 32.5mm x 22mm but it's a latching switch w/ light, so not ideal for a horn. It says it fits Toyota and it does.

    GL finding momentary contact in that foot print.

    PS - I've been debating on making a timer that resets the instant you let off the horn but if held on for (pick a number) 7 seconds, it enables output to another relay for as you requested a louder horn and when you let off main horn, both quit.

    Would you be interested? I'm sure amazoo has some 12v device to do this if you go looking.

    Wow this is a cool idea. I think the delay would have to be closer to 1 or 2 seconds though. Basically a short toot-toot would use the regular horns but a sustained press would turn on the loud horn.

    I took a quick peak at amazoo, there may be simple circuit to be bought if not, we can make one if someone can define a time before it mega horn comes on.

    Because I don't want to build a pcba to mount a programmable chip, some dip switches and resistors could set the time.
    Initial 2, second delay then for each dip switch flipped, adds another second....

    I made a switchback circuit for my street bike on a small foot print. It's been working for 5 years... I can make this if you all can solder and cut stuff.

    Started with a timing diagram, designed a circuit and then built two for left and right DRL/turn indicators...

    @chrisf111

    Read the details on this... I'd say 99% chance it would do what you want when coupled to current horn output, and a suitable power relay to drive your new louder horn(s).

    Programmable Delay Amazoo

    Read the long text description of its capabilities and maybe watch the video. PS it programs through your web browser. No app needed which makes me feel a lot better. PS - I'm guessing it has a PIC18F microcontroller in it, hence having to buy the programming hardware to go with it.

    I'm tempted. Find us a good Horn!
    Both truck and car need this as well my bike! That said, I have 100% faith that if I build a circuit it will never let me down.

    Looks promising. Almost looks like a similar product to the PAC TR7 module I used to do my tailgate latch auto open. That module was able to look for a certain number of input pulses and trigger an output pulse when it saw it. In my case when it sees 3 unlock pulses it sends a pulse to the tailgate actuator.

    I've been thinking about doing a simple upgrade of my horns to something like this for a while https://www.amazon.com/HELLA-Protective-3AG-003-399-801/dp/B000CRZXPI
