If you are refering to the ignition switch, put the key in the ignition and turn it to "on".  Do not start the car.  there should be a hole on the bottom of the column below the ignition switch.  Stick a long skinny object, such as an unbent paper clip into that hole.  There is a littlle "button" that you have to depress and pull the switch out.

How to remove bottom part of dash 1995 thunderbird

As others already explain, you don't need to remove the lower dash area to replace the ignition switch, but if you need to remove it for whatever reason, you must first remove the color matched part of the dash that lies just below the steering column by removing the three large bolts that secures it to the dash metal frame (located along the end of the cover) and then pulling it towards the seat as parallel as posible to the floor to disengage the clips that hold it to the dash, then you will see the four screws that hold the lower plastic part of the steering column cover, take them out and you're done.

The turn signal won,t work.where is the fuse located? we checked in the steering colum and on the side of the steering colum.

Ford likes to hide them in a small black plastic box about half the size of a cigarrette box. it has a black cover on it and once you remove it you will find a blue relay. Thats what is probably bad. Try looking on the right side of the steering column but up in the dash

The horn Button at the steering wheel is simply a switch. It grounds out when pushed causing the circuit to close, routing it though the actual  horn under the hood which is sitting there waiting to activate.
