I know the main horn for the CT is located in front of the radiator and they are LOUD. But I'm curious what looks like a small horn next to the engine is use for. I could not find a description or reference in the manual (unless I miss reading it).

Here's a picture of the small horn I'm referring. Anyone know about this?
Thanks.

Probably not a horn... Interesting looking though. I've never opened my hood. Might be time to have a look. :p

Edit: I thought pressure switch.. but now I think it is the Alarm Horn...

It the security horn.

Haha...found the answer to my own question.

Searching the web I learn the small horn by the engine is referred as "Security Horn". It works in conjunction with the factory alarm feature.

Why would Lexus put a small horn for alarm system?:confused: Wonder if a siren will work in it's place.:rolleyes: Another mod idea?:rolleyes:

That's odd, I would have thought it just uses the normal horn for the alarm.

Separate Alarm Horn ?

Just a SWAG, but normal horn could probably easily be defeated by thief by pulling fuse; also might be higher, more piercing pitch.
