Ignoring your ignorance......

Golf's have two separate horns: a high tone and a low tone. Your low tone horn is probably not working.

Sounds like a potential wire problem?

+1 yup, maybe a pinched wire. Best to remove the front bumper and check the horn, if you put 12volts across each of the horns, it will tell you what's what.

If that doesn't pan out, maybe retrace some of your previous work as your previous post suggest you dismantled your GTI previously, maybe something isn't as it should be.

Good luck!

I can't speak for the GTI but the 2.5 when driven through big water has an issue with exceeding 3k RPM but after a few days of drying out things go back to normal.

I would suggest making a list of all the symptoms that have transpired following the big water incident, download a wiring diagram for the GTI and see what's what, there must be a common point. Example: a 12v supply to the sensors.

Good Luck!
