    Just had my windows tinted, now when the car shuts off the horn blows non-stop. Anyone have any ideas? The flashers and radio were flickering as well, that is no longer happening but the horn issue sill is

    second time I heard that, check the threads, the tint guy accidentally put it into a mode.

    sorry I can't remember who that happened to.

    They'd have to use lot of water, I was here when they did it, they had towels etc down on the dash as well. Not saying it couldn't have happened, but they do lot of the dealer cars an no issues

    The hazard lights flickering has stopped but the horn still has the issue, we have removed the front and rear tint and nothing has change. And the car rental place was already closed so i have it for now. Will see what happens tomorrow after it has a day to try out. Going to see if that helps, if not, take it back to the dealer Wed AM and let them look into it.

    This is the third time this issue has arose. All three have tinted the windshield. Any moisture in the dash is setting the cat on edge. Let it dry out. Maybe a fan circulating air in the rolled down window of the car.

    Well i can't do the fan thing, but i do live/work in the desert haha, so hopefully as it sits in the sun tomorrow it will dry out. I told Dodge that i would let it dry out for a day and hook the horns back up and see what they do.

    Let her dry out for a few days, not still continued to do the horn issue. She is at the dealer now getting looked into, hopefully it ends up not being a big deal, and hopefully i will hear something tomorrow

    I would consider it a big deal if they have to remove the dash and service electronics. I don't live in the desert, but I have never heard of tinting your windshield before. Guess the cat needs to come with a warning about that. Hope things turn out well.

    Tinting the front isn't THAT uncommon, and like others have posted its more or less a clear tint just to help keep the heat out. They've had it since yesterday so hopefully i will hear something in the next day or so
