    Sure, it's possible... but what happens when your computer blue screens and jams the horn on right as you pull up behind a bunch of Hell's Angels on the freeway?

                same question goes for people that wire there window controls and AC to ther carputers

                and you get the same answer

                  No, the windows and AC are very useful to have wired. If you don't have a high-end luxury car with auto-windows or you have a crappy AC system, the computer can automate the functions to give you functionality of more expensive cars. The horn, however... I can't picture a situation where you'd need the horn to be computer activated.

                        automate the functions?... you must be joking

                        how many people cant find enough time while driving to hold the window button down for what?.. 3 seconds?

                        perhaps if you wired the ac controls to turn on when it rises above a certain temp but really

                        besides do you really care what other people do with there money/vehicals?

                          The thought has crossed my mind, but I think I would be much easier to just use my switchbox.

                          I have though about linking them to my alarm, having it panic when the alarm is triggered. But it really moves around a lot and it would probably smash someones foot or smash into the car next to me. I would probably get jack-holes setting off my alarm to see it dance.

                            You're right... What other people do with their money/ vehicles is their own concern. (I'm putting a pc in a Citroen AX, so I should know... )

                            Just sounds a bit daft...

                            Is there anybody out there that knows if there is a production car on the market that has some kind of computer attached to the horn system???

                              .

                              Here's a use for wiring the horn to the computer..

                              Everytime, you swear in your car the horn beeps.. so if someone cuts you off "F**K You A**H**E!" the computer gets the voice recognition and honks the horn...
