Overall, how is the PI holding up under the constant demands of police work? I know your not police officers, but I thought I'd ask since many of you own the vehicles? How durable was the older 9C1 caprice?
I have a 93 Merc marquis, non cop car ofcourse, its running currently at 206k, other then normal maint. like oil changes, plugs, pads and one set of rotors, only repair ever made to the car have been....ALT at 50kish, Starter at 160kish, and a tranny flush at 195kish, other then that the car is ALL ORIG!!!
I have a 94 Caprice 9C1 (cop car) with the LT1 that currently is running 187k.

Didnt get its FIRST TUNEUP, I mean wires, plugs, nothing till 130kish!

I have work done on this GM at a shop that I trust as they stand behind their work...
Alright guys, I'm trying to get my horn to work on my 2005 Police Interceptor.
Things I've checked:
12V to the horn, they blow.
Checked ALL the fuses in the under dash fuse box, all good.
Checked the fuse under the hood, its good.
So, what and where should I check?
