Make sure that you haven't lost the small wire that is at the small u-joint on the steering column in the engine comartment. These will sometimes come undone and that is the wire you need to make the horn honk. I believe it is a ground. The column has a rubber damper in it and that damper isolates the column from ground. Tell us if this works.

:D Awsome, i knew someone had this problem before, and it was getting dark by the time i needed to start looking for earths, wire was still in place but had broken off at one end, tho looked like someone had done a dodgy repair in the past (dont we hate that!!) Made a new lead up with some crimp terminals and screwed it on and bingo, nice happy alfa horn to honk :)
