Re: 1992 Panda Horn Relay?

mk2 pandas do not have horn relays, they are directly earthed through the push button in the middle of the steering wheel. they usually have a live going directly to the horn behind the bumper.

hold the button down and turn the steering wheel.. maybe the slip ring has a small bit of corrosion on it. you can take the middle button out by undoing the 2 screws on the back of the steering wheel.. give it a brush over and maybe add a dab of copper slip to it.
its how i fixed mine..
hope this helps.

Many thanks Iíll try it out. Iíve checked with a multimeter and there is 12v to the horn so also bought a replacement as well.

Re: 1992 Panda Horn Relay?

Horn issue continues. Works fine with no ignition on but when on - nothing but a very weak and short beep. Have cleaned both earth hedgehogs by water bottle and o/s front strut but still no improvement. Any thoughts?

Put a jump lead on the negative battery and the other end to a clean part of vehicle body(Not the engine)
Does horn work better?

All sorted. Further earth cleaning sorted the issue. All good and recommissioning continues - went for a run on Saturday and all good. Full service next and ready for some cosmetics.
