Hi guys, took car for MOT today. Failed on horn not working hmmm was working other day. Guy at garage said he's tested the horn itself, it's fine. Was just wondering if the horn is part of the dreaded economy mode, as I don't think he had car running,

Cheers, Matt

I think it doesn't work if economy mode is active... but an easy way to check is turn engine on and test it

Well it's a very easy check, with the car running does the horn work?

Well guys, got my car back from garage. Still no horn and no new MOT. Mechanic is scratching his head at it, so looks like a trip to the dealers

Hey M8tty.
Had the same problem. Horn just stopped working. I can hear the relay clicking under the bonnet, so i know it's not the steering wheel button. Did you manage to sort it? What was is?

Thank you
