on my mates corsa b, the horn was just a button in the wheel, and when you push it, it simply connects two contacts together, the circuit is completed, and the horn sounds.

was this like the wheel you had?

Just phoned Lee and he said

Take the steering wheel off so youcan see into the boss, connect the horn wire to 1 off the contacts on the momo horn and the other contact on the horn to earth (any metal part of steering wheel)

brown is usally earth if that helps. maybe you just earth that wire and the horn sounds? although its very bad practice to have a a switch in the earth, its usually done through al ive...

With my momo wheel i just used a ring terminal crimp for the earth wire and put one of the steering wheel screws into the boss kit when I fitted it. it works fine for an earth and is in secure.
