I have a 91 olds calais and just got my inspection and now my horn is not working i do not have an owners manual and i am wondering where the horn fuse is located to fix the problem or if there is something else that could cause this to happen i am not sure if the horn fuse is under the hood or inside the car please help
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.

the horn have fuse and relay in engine fuse compartment.inspect all the fuses. in your owners manual is the location of the fuse and relay. if OK, one person push the horn and other check power to the horn.if no power swap the relay with other one for test.if you SRS light is ON and the horn does't work suspect the clock spring(soft connection below the steering wheel to column)
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.
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
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.
i dont know i am having a similar problem with my 91 olds cutlass calais its a 2.5 l 4 cyl and i can drive it and it only happens a couple times a week but the RPM gauge goes crazy and the car stalls out it starts right back up but when i put it back into either reverse or drive the rpm does same thing and car stalls ive had it to 5 mechanics they cant figure it out...im hoping to get help on here
For starters, check the fuse block and inspect the most related fuses, like HORN, ACC, dashboard. The owner's manual should have a troubleshooting guide for the most basic stuff, including the horn. Try this for now and see how it works. Let me know if the problem persists. Good Luck.
