156 Horn Works Very Briefly

Hi Everyone,

I've tried to resist posting a new thread about a common fault but I'm at a loss after going through advice on all the other related threads. My 156 horn doesn't work.

Basically so far I've checked the steering wheel contacts, fuses, horn contacts and the horn itself, everything seems to be in order. It just doesn't work. The whole system has been looked at by Ferdi in Lytham too but to no avail.

If, however I disconnect and reconnect the battery the horn works very breifly, Less than a second, but that's your lot. It's not like it damages the circuit as the fuses and relays are fine afterwards.

So... Could the horn be battery related? i know there are ECU failures a dodgy battery can bring up but my battery checks fine and I haven't had any other faults with the the car (other than a coil pack I had to replace).

Any help would be most welcome, cheers
