All ya gotta do is take the two wires going to the stock horn and run them to the terminals of the solenoid.. then when you honk instead of the stock horn sounding it will open the solenoid and the air horns will sound...

you can put the negative on a switch. just run constant power to the solenoid like the stock horn and have the negative on the switch. simple.

hey, it works for the stock horn right? if you were to take the stock horn off and rig it to a positive switch, it would work too.

and for some reason, i didnt think of it when i was hooking mine up.

hmm, i dont get the idea. you used the stock positive wire for the horn onto a toggle switch for the air solenoid? or you used the ground? i dont understand your drawing.
