Several times, at night, I've hit the Kahlenberg D-1 horns, instead of the bilge blowers.

Ooops!

Ah few, I had hoped you meant a boat and not a car that this was all on.

What - you mean like a cutout switch?. Gee never thought of that in my several decades of doing auto electrics. Thanks mate for the excellent suggestion.

It might be difficult for you to take on board now, but trust in the experience and lessons learned from the people like here who've done this sort of stuff for a long time. I'm sure that once you get around to outfitting that madcap Swift of yours with some horns, there will be a time that you'll jump out of your skin after setting your off horns unintentionally (regardless of whether you have a retinal scanner, seat cushion switch, proximity sensor or whatever else you can dream up as a "safety system")
