Weak Horn

What can I do about my very weak horn.... You can hardly hear it.


Also can my remote when I press them to lock or unlock the doors can I get the horn to beep? ...... Last but not lease why doe the truck all ways unlock when I press the unlock on my remote when opening the doors?


Thanks

It may be your horns have gone bad & need to be replaced.
As for the rest of your concerns they can be changed,
the how to is in the owners manual, 1st link in my signature.

My Horn is very feeble too, am thinking of some sort of after market replacement. Maybe air horns.
