Horn not working

sounds very much like a bad earth i did a quick fix for someone in a rush with this problem once, all i did was get a bit of wire strip it off and get a jubilee clip and clipped one end of the wire round the bottom of the steering column and the other end to a bolt on one of the pedals making sure there was enough slack to wrap round the steering column on full lock either way and it worked fine

Hi, I had the same problem, solved by thoroughly cleaning the four brass horn contacts under the steering wheel airbag.

Hi all, just had my fault cured by local garage. Access the horn from under wheel arch, disconnect leads and clean all terminals and connectors, put back together. 
Bingo, or, indeed, Berlingo!

Take a look at these instructions:


Put the driver's window down, lift the bonnet and ensure all equipment is switched off.

Ensure all doors are closed and remove key from the ignition.

Wait for 3 minutes, disconnect the vehicle battery and wait 15 seconds.

Reconnect the vehicle battery, wait a further 10 seconds (do not open doors.).

Switch on the side lights through the driver's window.

Switch on the ignition and check system's functionality.

Hold lock button on key down for 10 seconds.

Remove key open & close door test central locking system.

Start the engine and complete the system's check.

Failure to follow this procedure could result in incorrect operation of many BSI related items.
