Ok. Someone from a different forum suggested the following....

"In other words.....put the original hooter wires on 86 and 85. 30 straight from battery positive via a fuse. 87 to the hooter. Open terminal on hooter goes to earth on the clamp"

Will try this and let you all know.

So this is what you did, just for confirmation?  ::)

I don't think the world will ever know  ;)

It is tripping the CANBUS.

How did you even find space for the compressor??
I gave up on that idea, went to a scrap yard, got myself 2 low and high air horn from an audi (Merc, BMW or VW will work too)
Never had any issues

I think you native feed is maybe still running through the canbus and pulling to much amps.
Only use the positive wire from the original hooter to activate the relay on pin 86.
The rest is all directly from the battery.
Pin 85 should be grounded or connected directly to battery negative.
The new hooter positive will be connected to pin 30 and negative also grounded or directly to battery negative.

Attached simple diagram.

AAAAAAAAAAAAGH I think I'll go left.
