    Broken wires behind the steering wheel 100%. You will need a new rotary switch. About an hours labour and about 50 quid off the top of my head.

    Mine too, bad earth in the end up. took it off and wire brushed everything up, put it back on and it worked fine!
    Phoned local Renault dealer the day b4 for some advice, *joke*, they also said it could be the rotary switch which they quoted me 82! Was thinking at the time that they had quoted me wrong as they also said that it would cost 70 + VAT for the actual horn itself if that was broke!

    Hope its just a bad earth like mine mate!

    Re: Horn Problem, Horn not working

    Mine stopped working a few weeks before the warranty ran out. Reno fixed it, so unfortunately I'm not sure of the costs/bits involved.

    I think I'm right in saying that a non-working horn is an MOT failure as well. So if that's due soon, you may have to sort the horn out regardless?

    Hopefully it is an easy fix like others have said above!

    Re: Horn Problem, Horn not working

    nearly always faulty horn unit itself, seems to be prone to getting water in, best way to access is take the n/s arch liner out, then get a multimeter on it and get someone to press the horn so you can see if there is a feed. Or hook the horn up to 12v.

    Re: Horn Problem, Horn not working

    Mine stopped working as well, Failed my Mot because of it
    Was told to see an Auto Electrician Which im doing tomorow so will let you no the price etc

    and Yours sounds like its wiring not the actual horn as it works.
    If you get two pieces of wire connect em to the battery probs need two people and your horn goes off you no which part is broken but yeah sounds like earthing
