how many horns does the celica have?
i'm planning on upgrading the wimpy oem horns to FIAMM El Grande twin horns. but first i need to know how many horns there are. i can only see one under the headlight on the drivers side. i can remove it without removing the bumper cover. if there is a second horn hidden somewhere i will have to remove the bumper.

Many cars made around 2000 and up have two horns. I'm not sure if all Celica's have two horns. But I know for sure my car came with it like that I believe one is for the low tone and the high tone. When you tap the wheel soft the first horn has the low beep when you hold depress the horn steady both make that obnoxious honking sound. Change it if you want my brother changes his Sti horns with Klaxions they sound great and not obnoxious. My alarm is also connected to the low tone when I arm it it's just nasty to hear. Oh well, I'll go around switching it when I have the time.

(2) - (1) High, (1) Low... & you can vary the pitch slightly with an adjustment screw on the rear of each horn.

Interesting... I know the electrical print calls out for (2)... but they might be incorporated within a single housing... as the service manual only calls out (1) location... but, I also seem to recall seeing another horn mounted higher somewhere.. in a pic, or something? In any event, you can disconnect the one you know of... & hit the horn... if there is another one... it'll be easy to find;)

Good pics SickCelica696, yeah those 18 wheeler horns will rock your world. Super illegal but they sure get the job done. I can see the look on peoples face already lol.

Another alternative ever thought of a back up horn? Like the La Cocorarcha song when your back up.
