Err.. I'm a little stuck now.

I just went out and bridged the two contacts on the switch wiring and still nothing.
Bulbs are fine, all fuses are fine... err.. what next?

I thought bridging the pins would turn them on.

Yup.

I can see me running a new length of cable from the switch/live to the boot if all else fails.
I dont fancy picking apart a 20 year old loom.

Bloody horns broke now too. Relay clicks but theres no 'HONK'.
