Check all of the fuses, why just the 20 amp fuses?

pull each fuse and check to see if they are burnt...

Where is the fuse box for the flashers on a 91 cadillac fleetwood


Unfortunately, I do not have any iformation that old, and because the car is 20 years old, something like just a fuse cover is probably not going to be found on the web, it could turn into a headache.

However, I have some suggestions that mayhelp you.

The information you need is also in the owners manual. I have seen owners manuals selling on Ebay for $10.

You could go to a junkyard and get either a fuse cover or an owners manual. The years that should be the same are 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993.

If you intend on keeping the car and want every type of diagnostic information for the vehicle, you can get a subscription to http:// www.alldata.com for about $25 a year and download every factory manual and you can access that information for a year.

I make no money for plugging that site. It is just where I go when I need information on a specific vehicle.

You did not state the reason for knowing where the horn fuse was located. Sometimes they are seperate, but more commonly the horn will be on the same circuit as the dome/ cigarette lighter.

If you have a test light you can determine if power is going to the horn by having someone push on the pad while you are checking power at the horns. If you have power there you have bad horns.

A bad turn signal switch inside the steering column could be the problem. Very common probls were horn pads (air bag).

If you press on the horn pad and just hear clicking, the problem is not a fuse

Battery went dead in my 2001 Camry. After changing battery and replacing a 20 amp fuse in engine compartment, was able to crank and drive the car. However, there are still no dash/instrument panel...


Check the other fuses. Look in your owner's manual for the location of them. It would appear that you have at least one more blown fuse.

you can go to the ford fleet website and download a owners manual.
pages 183-189 talk about fuses and tell you what they are and the correct fuse amp to use.
I too had some of the problems you are experiencing. my speedometer and odometer quit working and the abs light came on and aldo my cruise control quit.
I replaced the fuse and that fixed everything at once.
I hope this helps.
here is the website just enter the information and you are there.
