long standing issue with my horn not working, I have traced it to the steering column shaft not being earthed so hence when hitting the horn button the earth cant be passed back and hence no horn. If I use a piece of wire connected to earth and touch it on the shaft the horn then works as it should. Weird!
Any words of advice from anyone on this?

doubt it really, probably easier going the other way I think

Any chance of threading another wire down the spindle shaft and out of the bottom for the earth and then leave a bit of play wrapped around for steering wheel turning just like the horn earth feed?

Had a bit of time to have a good look and the shaft looses the earth after the fibre coupling at the bottom of the shaft near the pedals. I guess the rivets that go through have corroded hence the issue. Best alternative I can see is to somehow attach a wire that links across this coupling - heath robinson here I come!

I think this is what I need to do as well to get earth to the top of the column

I bodged my earth by clamping a wire on the steering column above and below the fibre connector. I will check out the multi-plug tomorrow.

The earth wire for the horn goes through the multi-plug at the back of the column. I have had this connection fail in the past.
