Usually it's the plastic gear in the transmission. Sometimes hard to get out due to corrosion.

Horns generally don't have fuses. Judging from the year it could be shot. replace with a new one as they are generally pretty cheap.

Why would a 1990 ford tempo go in reverse but not forward it is 2.3 4 cylinder manual


Because the transmission is dead. reverse works on different parts than drive on these cars. And since no one uses reverse more than drive? well you get my point.

1990 ford tempo horn won't stop honking. need to know where it is so i can unplug it


You may find that you have a horn fuse if you do simply remove it other wise here it is.
The horn in my 1994 ford tempo is located behind the right front tire wheel well. (1) Remove the right front tire. (2)Remove the inside thick black cardboard protector(A lot of work)(3)Look up inside the fender. You will see 2 small horns.One marked high(h) and one marked low(l).
hope this helps....Good luck!
