Where is the horn fuse on a 1999 grand caravan

The horn fuse is in a fairly large black fuse box under the hood on the driver's side. There are two tabs at the rear of the box that you pul towards the front of the van to release, then lift the cover by rotating it up and toward you. On the inside of the cover you will find a "map" of what each fuse controls.
Anytime you have an electrical issue with this vehicle, you should check this box first. For instance, I went and bought new headlights when what I really needed was one of the headlight fuses found in this box.
The fusebox under the dash only has about 10-12 fuses in it, and they are not the ones that will usually blow, so check under the hood before you twist your back out trying to get to the interior fuse block.
One last tip: a pair of needle-nosed pliers or an actual fuse puller is recommended, as finger space is limited around some fuses.
Hope this fixes it!

Turns over but won't start

I would start checking fuses for power. It could be a battery cable issue or something in the fuse box. The dash lights would not be powered thru the key switch, but the other stuff would be. Provided the key switch is getting power for accessories.

98 Nissan maxima. Both headlights went out. Fuses seem to be good. What do I do?

To make it as simple as possible, you only need a (+ 12 volts) positive wire and a (- ground) to make any electrical circuit work. I would guess you have lost your power and the first suspect is the fuse. It is sometimes difficult to look at a fuse and determine its integrity. I would swap in a new fuse first. It is possible to have had both bulbs blow and if you have a test light or meter you can check power at the headlight receptacle. Depending on your expertise it boils down to basically you will have power at the light (bad bulbs ) or no power ( bad fuse or broken wire or headlight switch bad). Just remember when replacing fuses, it must be the correct amperage fuse. If its insufficient, it will immediately blow as soon as you turn on the headlights.
Hope this helps you some.

Horn,headlights and rear defroster are all malfunctioning

Check the wiring, it sounds like a wire grounded out which makes the wire get hot and melt the insulation off of the wire and then melts into the surrounding wires. Which in turn the exposed wires make contact and can do all sorts of things depending on the wires involved.. in your case when you turn on the headlights it feeds power to the rear def. and the horn.
