Look for your hood latch its located near the floor on the drivers side at the bottom of the dash. Look up under the dash and there is the fuse panel. Look for any burnt fuses because it could work off of another fuse. Horn should be visible though for you to replace it.

Where is the fuse for the horn?


Why not put battery voltage directly to the
horn & end the wondering about the horn it'self

If the horn fuse or any fuse blew, replacing
it is not a fix,they fail for a reason

Check all fuses

Look in your owners manual

That is what it is for,fuses & lamps,have to have one

Car horn not working


Often times when the air bags deploy the horn buttons are damaged,the quick solution would be to install a push button to ground the horn wire. Just hook one side of the button to ground and the other to the horn wire.

Where is the fuse box for the flashers on a 91 cadillac fleetwood


Unfortunately, I do not have any iformation that old, and because the car is 20 years old, something like just a fuse cover is probably not going to be found on the web, it could turn into a headache.

However, I have some suggestions that mayhelp you.

The information you need is also in the owners manual. I have seen owners manuals selling on Ebay for $10.

You could go to a junkyard and get either a fuse cover or an owners manual. The years that should be the same are 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993.

If you intend on keeping the car and want every type of diagnostic information for the vehicle, you can get a subscription to http:// www.alldata.com for about $25 a year and download every factory manual and you can access that information for a year.

I make no money for plugging that site. It is just where I go when I need information on a specific vehicle.

You did not state the reason for knowing where the horn fuse was located. Sometimes they are seperate, but more commonly the horn will be on the same circuit as the dome/ cigarette lighter.

If you have a test light you can determine if power is going to the horn by having someone push on the pad while you are checking power at the horns. If you have power there you have bad horns.

A bad turn signal switch inside the steering column could be the problem. Very common probls were horn pads (air bag).

If you press on the horn pad and just hear clicking, the problem is not a fuse

I've got a 91 Calais. The cooling fan isn't working. Replaced t-stat. Water is flowing now. Fuse is good. Is there a relay somewhere? Or a thermal switch for the fan?


Relay in the fuse box. Coolant tempertant switch aka thermal switch in the water jacket by the t-stat.
I would check the fan first disconnect the electrical connectors on it and use a pair of home made jumper cables and run it from the battery. If it works move unto relay if it doesn't you've found the culprit.

Whatyrwas the cutlass calais manfufactured,and was there ever a stands hift trans in any olds cutlass calais??


Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais were made from1978-1991, and yes there were manual trans as well as automatic trans.

Here's some History on the Cutlass Calais.


March 1982 to replace Starfire, Lansing's version of the front-drive 101.2-inch-wheelbase corporate J-body subcompact failed to attract more than about 45,000 customers in most years -- except for 1984, when it garnered a credit­able 82,500 -- even though Olds tried most everything it could think of to sell it.

1988 the Firenza had offered all the J body styles, sporty GT and SX variants, overhead-valve and overhead-cam fours, optional V-6, and a confusing procession of price-leader and luxury models. But nothing seemed to work, and Olds gave up after '88. Firenza was no great loss, though, because 1985 brought a more-sale-able small Olds in the N-body Calais, called Cutlass Calais after 1988. Sized between Firenza and Omega on a 103.4-inch wheelbase, it bowed as a rounded, short-deck coupe in two versions: base and -- just to confuse things -- Supreme. Four-door sedans were added for 1986.
There was a lot of J-car engineering under the "modern formal" styling, and initial engine choices were the Ciera's familiar Pontiac-built four and 3.0-liter Buick V-6. Even so, customers generally liked this new bottle of old wine, snapping up 100,000-plus in the first year and better than 150,000 of the '86s -- about midway between the similar Pontiac Grand Am and Buick Skylark/Somerset.
For 1988, Calais coupes and sedans grouped into base, luxury SL, and sporty International Series (the last replacing a GT package option), but the big news was the first twin cam, 16-valve four-cylinder engine in American production, the Quad-4. Designed and built by Olds and offered as an across-the-board Calais option, it delivered 150 rather rough and noisy horses, but was claimed capable of much more.
Olds proved it by adding a tuned 180-bhp version for 1989. A more-useful option that year was a new 3.3-liter derivative of the 173-cid Chevrolet-sourced V-6. Replacing the Buick-built 3.0, it also produced 160 bhp -- and more torque than even the "High Output" Quad-4. To fill in for the departed Firenza, prosaically named Value Leader Calais models appeared for '89 with less standard equipment and restricted options but lower prices.
Enthusiasts surely shuddered when the 442 returned (sans hyphens) as a performance option for the base 1990 Calais coupe. Olds said the name now designated "Quad-4, 4 valves per cylinder and 2 camshafts."
Included in the $1667 package were the 180-horse Quad-4, five-speed manual transaxle, a specific version of Oldsmobile's FE3 sport suspension, meaty 215/60R14 performance tires on alloy wheels, full instrumentation, a cute rear-deck spoiler, and bold "442" exterior I.D. "Buff books" gave this latest 442 a lot of ink, but customers mostly gave it the cold shoulder.
Even a hallowed name on an honestly speedy little car couldn't convince many that Olds still specialized in high performance the way it had in the '50s and '60s.
