Horn Location


(Normsthename) #1

Typical
The MOT is looming up fast and the horn has decided to stop working.
Checked the 15A Fuse (Swapped with another in the fuse box) and that was fine.
I use the horn a lot so it’s not through lack of use!
Does anyone know where it hides?

My experience is that it could be broken. I have the same. Simple test: take wite between 60A fuse and the horn. I replaced it (bumper must be disassembled) and now it works. For more info you can write PM to me

Stripped the front plastic off the Twizy tonight to get at the horn.
After a lot of swearing I had the horn removed.
First I tried wiring up a headlamp bulb to the wires to see if there was power. Nothing…
Secondly I wired the Horn upto a 12v Supply and it works :confused:
Now what?
Is there a Relay in the circuit?
All the other switches work on the left hand stalk, so I am doubting it could be the button?
Anybody have any ideas?

Looked at a Wiring Diagram for a Renault Megane 2
I know it’s not the same, but I believe it uses the same Switch Stalk???
Anyway, there’s no relay fitted to the horn circuit on the Megane so guess the Twizy is the same…

Fixed the Horn :slight_smile:
It was a broken red wire in the left hand Stalk.
Quite difficult to repair because there was not a lot of wire left in the Stalk.
Had to melt & cut some plastic away to get access to enough wire.
Soldered the wire back on and it now works :smiley:
Hope it holds out, new Stalk is £120+ :drooling_face:
