Does the Horn work without the engine on?

Bit of an odd request here. Going to try and wire up a horn button on the dash this evening. But the engine isnt in a state where i could switch it on. Just wondering if anyone knows if just the ignition would power the horn? or if the engine has to be on....

Before i go chasing wires thinking its not working etc.

It will be off the perm live, otherwise you couldn't alert someone to your position / danger if you were parked.

Ph1 stalk is usually the easy go-to assuming you've an aftermarket steering wheel ?

Good point. Ive built a small switch panel so I’m going to run the wires to there I think. Presuming there’s just two wires connecting to the steering wheel hub somewhere. Was going to just extend them to the centre dash.

Do you need it to be road legal ?

Just perhaps be careful you can reach it when strapped in ?!
