On the bottom of the oil pan. There may even be 2 oil drain plugs, at least there were in the late 80's models.

Where is the location for seat belt light fuse in a 1990 ford thunderbird


Removing a fuse is not the correct way to repair that. You need to diagnose your seat belt warning system and repair it accordingly.

I have a 1989 thunderbird and need to know, where is the reset when you change the oil.


If you have to change the oil change reminder light back to green, look for a small hole on the face of the panel near the light. Turn the key in the ignition but don't start the car. Insert the end of a straightened paper clip in the hole and push firmly until light starts to blink and turns green. When it turns green you're good to go! Hope this helps.

Service Engine Soon light reset.


The Service Engine Soon light comes only when the engine computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, it is not related to the oil change, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Brake pedel hard,can't get fluid to back brakes,


You need to replace the round Ball (accumulator ball). It's not holding pressure. You have front brake only. Is the pedal hard as a rock, the red brake light stays on, abs light stays on?
