Horn sounds when starting engine

This issue just started. I went to start my Dolphin yesterday, and when I turned the key, the horn sounded briefly before the engine turned over. I drove it all day on Tuesday with no issue.

Now it does this each time I start the motor. Any clues? Perhaps it's a warning of some kind? I couldn't find anything in the manual.

Find the horn relay and remove it and start the rig, let it run a few minutes and then shut it down. Replace the relay and see if it still does it. Just a thought here and IS MOHO as well.

When I took out the horn relay, the motor wouldn't turn over. Just and error on the dash display showing error J180. I put the relay back in and it started right up, but still sounding the horn.

I've scoured the manual and can't find anything related to the horn issue. It's got me stumped. ???

I'll bet good money that it "Should" run with out that horn relay, i might be wrong, you really need to get your hands on a wiring Sech. and find out for sure what is tied into that relay. your other opption is to unhook the horns so they won't sound off every time you start the rig and then rewire them to their own circut with a relay in line as to not burn the horns out, and add a seperate button for the horns. Maybe some one else will step up to the plate here that knows more about this then we do and add there thoughts as well.
