There isn't one ,controlled by the totally integrated power module , computer . Horn not working , could be the clock spring inside steering column . google automotive clock spring . Does your radio controls on the steering wheel work ,if you have them . Is the airbag light lit ? When you push the horn switch on the steering wheel ,it is an input to the instrument cluster microprocessor . The instrument cluster is on the C.A.N. data bus ,when horn input is sensed it sends a message to the TIPM which then turns on the horns . all electronically controlled .

'96 Avalon. Where is the flasher relay located?

Turn signal flasher is difficult to access. It is located behind the instrument cluster. The radio trim, driver side vent, and trim all around the speedo needs to come off. The gauge cluster must then be pulled out. Behind there you will find the factory three pronged flasher.

Be sure to get the CORRECT REPLACEMENT. It is specific to your vehicle, and is not a standard 3 pin thermal flasher.

I'm doubtful you could replace the flasher from fishing your hand up from the pedal area, but maybe.

Before going though all that, I would recommend replacing the flasher FUSE. The fuse box has a diagram of what goes to what on the backside of the cover plate.

2004 ford explorer engine trouble light wiring diagram

The trouble light is in the instrument cluster.behind dash gauges.,BE SURE TO DISCONNECT BATTERY BEFORE REMOVING ANY PART OF DASH..Use safety glasses.,The cluster is attached to the back of gauges..Be VERY CAREFUL If you remove it ..Very Fragile and easy to damage..!!....Older vehicles have a more simple cluster with bulbs that can be replaced or removed..Or leave out and never have a trouble light again..I doubt if your vehicle has a simple bulb however it is possible...If you just wanted the light to go off forever there is a chance you could remove the cluster and it will have a simple small removable bulb..I would ask a Dealer Tech....The cluster is like a map or a weird racetrack..lights for each instrument are located on the pathway...You may could crush the tiny area where light is if it doesn't have a bulb that can be removed but it may interfere with other lights on the cluster pathway or perhaps DISABLE THE COMPLETE CLUSTER..I DONT RECOMMEND CRUSHING ANY PART OF CLUSTER.!!,,However I have seen it done..Some lights are made into the pathway and can't be removed and some are just removable bulbs..Your vehicle could have both type pending on location of your problem light..I have seen many replaceable bulbs located at the bottom of instrument clusters on Heavy Ford Trucks.., however the center lights cant be replaced..Especially if it is all digital..!!..Look for a close up photo of the rear of your instrument cluster on a computer and you will see what I am describing...You may just have a very small plug in bulb..It may be a good idea to ask a Dealership Tech.....Good Luck...

Instrument cluster gauges

Check engine light ,abs , air bag lights etc.... come on when key turned on ?
Fuse IPC/HVAC BATT 10 amp located in the left IP junction block . Do you know where this junction box is ?
Does the heater an A/C work ? If so the fuse isn't the problem .
The speedometer is a road indicator. The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is a permanent magnet generator which is located on the transaxle. The VSS sends an input to the PCM whenever the transaxle differential carrier turns. The PCM then buffers the VSS signal. The PCM transmits the VSS signal to the following components at 4000 pulses/mile through CKT 817:
• The instrument cluster
• The cruise control module
• The radio (uplevel)
The instrument cluster uses the input in order to indicate the vehicle speed on the speedometer.
Instrument Cluster Indicators
The BCM controls the instrument cluster indicators through the SPI serial data communication bus. Refer to Body Control Module System Check in Body Control System.

How do you replace dashboard lights behind speedometer on 1993 sonoma

You will have to remove the cluster to access the bulbs. Not too terrible of a job, but it is a little time consuming.

Your LCD display is out of order. You can try to find one new on eBay. Chinese brand is cheaper, but VDO is better. After buying the LCD display you will need to install it.
See this link as an example of a new LCD display installation in the instrument cluster.

Gauges don't regester

That year is under a factory recall for the gauge cluster. The dealership can do a test for you(gauge sweep) to see if thats the issue and if so the get the replacement gauge clusters from Seattle, WA and replace the whole cluster. Ran me about $538 to have the Delear do it in Oregon.
