    Seem to remember l had this fault on mine. There is a brass pin behind the steering wheel that touched the back to earth the horn circuit via the switch on the wheel. I got a very slim file down the back of the wheel and cleaned it up. May be best investing in a Haynes manual and looking at the wiring diagrams. Should also tell you how to remove the wheel and airbag.

    Does anyone know the exact location/number of the Horn Relay? I've checked countless internet pages and forums to no avail.

    Is it some kind of strange GM/Vauxhall mystery?

    Relay changed.....no difference.

    Horn Switch Wiring change......Result!

    Common failure apparently which would explain why the dealer has loads in stock!

    I replaced my buttons last week after mine worked when it wanted. Its a 10 minute job - disconnect battery, wait 5 min. Remove 2 torx screws thst hold airbag on. remove airbag and pull the horn button covers off. Them remove the switches and loom. Refit new ones and assemble in reverse.
