I'm putting together an air horn kit and I'm trying to figure out how to wire it. Im going to run a switch to a relay to the solenoid inside the truck but i would also like to put in a logisys remote realy switch. I
I absolutly hate electricity which is why I'm not a electrical engineering(physics makes me go on these rants)

Basically what would be the best way to wire it with two switchs to the same solenoid

you want either switch to make is sound? Then wire the switches in parallel.

Is that enough info?

I was thinking the remote switch would go exactly parallel to the switch on the upper left. (i.e. between + and 86) BUT. . .if the remote switch can handle the same current as the solenoid, then the way you have it illustrated will work fine as well.
