Default Horn button burning itself up?

New to the forum had no clue there was a train horn forum. Anyway I'm having an issue with my horn button it seems to be maybe burning itself up I'm on my 2nd one in only a few months. I refused to run the ugly one the kit came with which was rated at 6 amps instead I'm using a doorman one from the auto parts store rated for 8 amps anyone else have this problem or can anyone guide me to a button that seems to be better quality.

Default Re: Horn button burning itself up?

Are you using a relay?

Some switches, even 20A rated ones, just don't like that amount of current running through them.
