just noticed the little horn symbols on the leather-covered portion of the spokes.
is that where you press to honk the horn?
Then howcome they don't put the horn symbol above or below or off to the side of the Lotus logo? I tried to use the horn at the LAAS, but all the batteries were removed from the cars.originally posted by Adam P
Its in the center where the lotus symbol is..
Less Moore said:I have no absolute knowledge regarding the horn 'button' placement, but with the airbag in the center of the wheel, it would seem unlikely that the Lotus emblem would be the horn button
my civic's horn buttons are near the spokes away from the airbag, but they are still on the airbag cover. However, there was a time when my horns wouldn't work and that was because my airbag was found to have an error.originally posted by atyclb
virtually all US cars have the horn button in the center of the wheel, in the same location as the airbag
oh, ok, thanks Adam. That's weird that they would put the symbols off to the side.originally posted by Adam P
I used the horn in the blue LA auto show car and it was in the center like I said, but who knows where it will be in the production cars
I like the simple nature of the cockpit personality on the elise!shay2nak said:oh, ok, thanks Adam. That's weird that they would put the symbols off to the side.
Now that I look at the dash & wheel of the Elise again compared to the civic and benz, it looks so damn good. The wheel and small dials along with the simple layout look really great.
I had an '81 Mustang Ghia w/ the same feature- pushing a stalk tward the wheel hub is about the last thing you remember to do in a sketchy situation.Goose said:My old Esprit had the horn on the turn signal stalk. You pushed the stalk towards the center of the steering column to honk the horn. Anything would be less strange...
Cool! I like them there on the sides, i can probably use my thumb without loosening my grip on the wheel to honk at turtles, slowpokes, roadblocks, etc.originally posted by Nochmal
FWIW, when I sat in the yellow Elise at FVMC after the Chicago Autoshow, I accidentally honked the horn when pushing directly on the little horn icons. I don't know if the Lotus icon also honks the horn, but the horn icons on the spokes definately honked the horn and it was rather loud in the showroom.
