    Calling all sparkys!!

    Hello Gents. I need some info/advice.

    You are aware I have fitted a B7 steering wheel, minus the airbag. Due to there being no steering wheel internals, I have lost function of the horn. However I have a very simple push button horn button with two splades on the back for hooking up the horn wires. The thing is I dont know what colour wire/wires are for the horn!!!! The wires that were inside the wheel/airbag on the old steering for the horn were solid purple and green wires. Nothing inside the cowling cover matches these colours????!!!!!! The wires running off the horns at the front of the car by the radiator are solid brown and solid black on one of the horn units, and striped green/black and solid brown on the other unit. Question I have is does anyone know the colours of the two wires I need to run into the push button I have to make the horn work??!! I have been looking for ages, but cannot be sure of the colours. I dont want to mess this up as I dont fancy slicing into wires in that area without knowing what they are!!! Please help guys!!!

    One end of your switch gets grounded.

    The other end looks like it goes to a brown/white wire on the airbag contact ring (pin 3). Alternatively you could pick it up at the relay box, as the brown white goes to the coil of the horn relay, which i think is relay number 1.
