There's a bank of relays under the hood on the same brace as the radiator, passenger side. The horn relay should be one of this group.

Where are the horn relay in a 1979 Buick park avenue

Ha ha. that's pretty old. Back then the horn relay would be somewhere in the engine bay. Look on the firewall, the side fender areas, maybe on driver's side up front near the radiator support. It's a square cube, with three prongs.

Where is the horn fuse in silhouette 2001

First, there are two fuses and a relay that are part of your horn electrical circuit. I suggest you have someone with at least a bit of knowledge about auto electrical systems help you in this task. You can judge if you need help or not by asking yourself these questions and knowing the answers. Where are the two fuse blocks on my 2001 silhouette? and where is my owners manual that came with my van? If you knew that the fuse blocks were located-#1-under the front hood of the engine compartment, on the left side, jut to the left and above your radiator cap. If you know where your manual is....look near the back for diagrams of your fuse blocks. If "yes to both questions....continue to read....Unscrew the back plastic thumb nut on top of the fuse block case to access the fuses and relays. Relay #16, the furthest to the rear and dead center of the the horn relay.....relays are the larger, square shaped devices plugged into the fuse block. #36 fuse is the horn fuse in this block. It is located in the back right side of the block, in a cluster of 7 fuses. #36 is the furthest to the back of the two rows of fuses that comprise the cluster of 7. The second fuse block is located on the passenger side, in the side of the dash board. Access this fuse block by opening the passenger side front door then prying off the cover with your finger tips. You will have a fuse locator on the back side of the cover you pried off the side of the dash, the cover for the fuse block. find the "horn" fuse location diagram on the back of the cover. Each of the two fuse blocks have or had a fuse puller tool in each compartment to use to pull out the fuses. A relay will require you grab it with your fingers, wiggle it side to side to loosen it, then pull upward to remove. Make sure to replace it exactly as it was when removed. There are several relays, that are the same size as the horn relay, that can be removed and placed in the horn slot to test if your horn relay is bad or not. But first check the two fuses before moving to the relay. Fuses will show if they are bad or not by whether the metallic fuse link is still connected across the middle of the transparent fuse link. To view this link you have to remove the fuse. If the connection is broken, it's no good...replace it with a fuse of the same color or amperage. If your fuse continues to blow need to see a mechanic or electrician to find your short in the wiring causing the blow out. Again...if you couldn't answer "yes" to the two questions above....please get help from a friend or neighbor. In any case, be cautious when working on your car electrical system, and good luck.

Horn not working. When depressing the horn button on the steering wheel, only "clicking" sound is heard near the front passenger side. Checked the fuse and turned out to be unbroken. What's next?...

The clicking you hear is the horn relay working.
I would locate the horn and insure the wiring is intact and the horn has a good solid ground.
Then while someone is pressing the horn button measure the voltage at the wire that attaches to the horn to ground. If you get 12v or more the horn is bad. If you don't get any voltage replace the relay
