    Default Horn doesn't work

    The horn on my 1996 Corona has stopped working.

    So far have checked and verified the following.

    1. The horn works when supplied with power
    2. The fuse is ok
    3. There is power to the relay
    4. The relay works.

    So it appears the fault is through the button side of the circuit - how do I
    go about testing this side?

    BOTH horns?

    Check for relay function when the horn button is depressed. If it does
    not work the problem is either the button itself or the wiring. You will
    have to disconnect the relay from the button side and check for
    continuity or voltage when it is depressed.

    If this car is pre-airbag, first thing to check is the horn ring
    brush on the back of the steering wheel - they plain wear out...

    With airbag, you would be getting an airbag fault light if it was
    the clockspring cable. Unless only the horn lead has broken.

    I like the idea - but when they were pulling out in front of me I don't
    think they would have noticed (not a good time to find out the horn doesn't
    work either)

    Yep, problem was a broken horn lead in two places.

    Most noticeable was when the wire came away at the join that leads to the
    two buttons. Then found this lead was also broken about half way back
    towards the plug.

    All working now.
