1990 ford tempo horn won't stop honking. need to know where it is so i can unplug it

You may find that you have a horn fuse if you do simply remove it other wise here it is.
The horn in my 1994 ford tempo is located behind the right front tire wheel well. (1) Remove the right front tire. (2)Remove the inside thick black cardboard protector(A lot of work)(3)Look up inside the fender. You will see 2 small horns.One marked high(h) and one marked low(l).
hope this helps....Good luck!
