Question about 1998 Oldsmobile LSS

1 Answer

Is there a secondary fuse block, possibly behind the glovebox on my 1998 Olds LSS?

I cannot seem to find the 15A horn fuse. I found the maxi-fuse and relay on the firewall but this is not the one I'm looking for. The maxi-fuse is good, but I still do not have power to my relay. The 15A fuse shown on my diagram is NOT located in the block under the dash on the driver's side. Any suggestions as to a possible alternate location? My Chilton's book is totally useless on this one.

    Sure enough there was a secondary fuse block behind the glove box. Heck of a place for a horn fuse to be. Anyway, you can release the rubber stops at the back of the glove box and drop the box down to access this panel. If you have large hands like me, it is much easier to drop the trim panel under the glove box (2 screws) and access the fuse block this way.

Check behind the glove box. I have seen a fuse box there on some GM cars.

Testimonial: "Thanks. I suspected that's where it could have been, but it helped to have some degree of confirmation. Went out this morning, dropped the box and there it was. Thanks again."

SOURCE: Loking for fuse box/relays diagram for 1994 Olds 88 Royale

Fuses (located on a swing down unit near the steering column or in the glove box) protect all the major electrical systems in the car. In case of an electrical overload, the fuse melts, breaking the circuit and stopping the flow of electricity.

I suggest check your 1994-Oldsmobile-Eighty-Eight-Owners-Manual for descriptions (page 223 and next).

Hope this help..

Horn is not functioning on my 2006 Ford Taurus. I have checked the fuses listed in the owners manual. I however can't seem to locate the Horn Relay. I found a secondary relay box stuck between the battery...

Is the air bag light lit on the instrument cluster ? The horn relay isn't under the hood in the engine compartment , it's in the SJB - smart junction box located inside the passager compartment . Under the dash panel left side . You can take the relay back to autozone because it's not the right one ! The relay is inside the smart junction box ,soldered to the printed circuit board !
Horn Horn
The vehicle is equipped with dual horns. The horns are mounted in the LF frame rail corner behind the front bumper.
The horn system consists of the following components:
  • steering wheel horn switches
  • clockspring
  • horns
  • smart junction box (SJB)
Horn Switch, Steering Wheel Mounted
The horn switches are incorporated within the driver side air bag module in the steering wheel. The switches are grounded and control the horns through the clockspring. For removal and installation of the driver side air bag module, refer to Section 501-20B .

Location of horn fuse

There should be a fuse for the horns. Your owner's manual would give the location. It may be in the fuse/relay block under the hood. Is there another fuse panel under the driver's side dash?
There is also a horn relay in the horn circuit. This should be in the under hood relay block, but they only rarely are the problem. The most common problem with no horn is the horn switch under the horn pad on the steering wheel. The metal contact strips often get bent out of shape. You would have to pull the horn pad off to check. The pad may be held on by plastic clips, or maybe Phillips head screws from the back of steering wheel. If that part looks good, you would probably need a voltmeter or test light to start checking for power along the circuit. Sometimes just finding the horns themselves can be difficult. Maybe behind the grill, or seen from inside a fender well (behind the fender inner liner), or mounted to a lower radiator support...somewhere on the front of car.

Horn wont stop cant locate fuse

The fuse block is located below the dash and mounted to the fire wall. This area is where the brake pedel is located. If you still can't locate the fuse, open the hood and the horn is located behind the grill. Remove the wire from the horn. To fix the problem correctly it's possible that the horn relay is stuck closed which is why the horn blows. A wiring diagram will show the location of the relay. Most relays snap into the holder.

For my toyota corolla 1nz 121 (right hand drive) thereis no power supply to the radio, side rear vision mirrors nd the light in the clock? and also can not locate the fuse box inside the car?

On my right hand drive 2007 Toyota Corolla 1.6 wagon (NZ) the interior fuse box for the radio/cig lighter/mirrors etc was in behind the glovebox. I had to pull open the glovebox (squeeze in the sides to get it past the stops) and carefully unclip it from its bottom plastic hinges (take care to unclip the opening damper on the left hand side as well). Looking up I found the cover to the fuse box. I removed the cover and using the little white plastic tool from the fuse box under bonnet (and the spare 15A fuse from the same place) I replaced the blown 15A CIG fuse and it all came back to life!

Horn not working can't locate under hood.

The horn is located behind the grill on the right corner of the engine comp. The horn relay is located in the block behind the glove box.
Also the horn is on the same circuit as the cig lighter and dome light.
They use a 15amp fuse in the fuse block behind the lower left side of
the dash. Hope this helps.
