Test the horn fuse and horn relay if you have one. If you have power to horn switch test to see if you have power coming out when horn button is pressed. This can be done without power if you want you are merely checking to see if pressing and releasing the button changes whether you have continuity or not. If that tests okay then test the horn itself with a fused jumper to the battery. Remember - test fuses and wires first and ensure all connections are tight.

Renault clio hooter not working

Quite likely just a dirty contact under the horn push or a bad contact on one of the wires leading to the car. Of course it could be the actual horn its-self as it is a V reg. Obviously you have to sort this as a non working horn is an MOT failure. You know what, i use my horn on average once a year, when i am giving the car a pre mot look over. True! I can say with 100% honesty that i have not used the horn for at least 5 years [and maybe double that] apart from during that check.

I have often wondered what an MOT tester would do if you turned up with one of those shiny metal trumpet with a rubber bulb on the end [did you have one on your bike as a kid?] taped to the door mirror neck. I believe that the actual mot requirement is a working audible wraning device !

Damaged connector

The K1 is not an easy one to take apart compared to others. I would not recommend it. Plus once it is taken apart you lose the seal. I rarely charge my K1 using my phone. I purchased a unit for under $10 to charge my batteries on. I like to have an extra battery for my cell so I am never without service while it charges.
It will cost you more to get the piece replaced on your K1 than it would to get a seperate charger for a battery. If you need help let me know. I will help you locate a charger if needed.

Blank or White screen on new Motorola Krzr k1 cell phone

If the phone still works, check to see if the left side of the hinge (when the phone is open and facing you) is loose. If you can wiggle the top 1/2 of the phone, the hinge is damaged, therefore damaging the flex cable that runs through it. If that is the case, replace the hinge assembly and the flex and you're good.

The K1 is no joke to take apart. Flex replacement requires full disassembly. I would recommend checking out, or to have it done professionally, less than Motorola will charge you.

Or give it a shot if you want, you need a T5 Torx and lots of patience and care.
