well horn stopped working,
relay checked-ok,
horns checked-ok,
earthed black/yellow striped wire behind steering wheel horn sounded,
so all that is left is the horn buttons or the springy thing that connects the wheel to the horn wire.
I think its the springy thing, BUT the AIRBAG wires go into it as well does the horn and airbag have there own spring or is it a common one.
Is the springy unit hard to replace?.
Is this a common failure or should I look at the buttons(I find it hard to believe that both would fail).

No fuse under dash its in engine bay and its fine. I think the problem is the clock spring unit behind steering wheel. Has anyone had one of these fail, and if so how hard is it to change?.

if you are handy with a soldering iron remove steering wheel you will see the brass end of the clock spring build up some solder on the end . your horn will work for a while longer. i have had to do this many times for registration when no parts avail through local holden dealer in darwin

Ok, brass pin is only relevent on NON airbag cars. Cars with airbag use a clock spring unit which supplies power to horn and airbag. Mine has failed, I removed it and opened it up today and found the ribbon cable inside had looped back on itself and pulled out of the conector. This is obviously not a $10 part, from Holden looks like it would be $100+ from Ebay range from $45 to $60. Shyt of a job too had to remove shroud and had to go and but a torx bit with a hole in it, another $11-T30H torx bit- to remove airbag. HORN HAS TO WORK FOR REGO.
