Default oldsmobile forums

Anyone a member of an olds forum? I have an issues and I thought it would be better to ask on a forum Im already a member of then to sign up for just one question. On my drive home my horn, radio, power locks stopped working when I tried to beep at someone. I need a fuse box diagram, I tried google and looked though a few forums but most you cant search with unless your a member. Its a 1995 oldsmobile cutlass ciera SL automatic(dunno if they made a manual or not) And I hate it and miss my Miata!

Im at a complete loss with this pile of ****, Oldsmobile forums are ghosttowns, I think I know why. Ive checked every fuse I can find, took out the radio, checked connections around the engine, I dont have a clue whats wrong.

Can anyone give me any guesses or anything at all?

Stoped working:
Horn
Clock
Radio*
power mirrors
locks
interior lights

Still working:
Power seats
rear defrost
windows
exterior lights

*While I cant tune the radio, if I turn it on I get static, the volume is adjustable but not as loud as it should be.

If it only happens when you beep, then wire another horn with a discreet button location and disconnect the OE one. Problem solved, grief-be-gone. OR even easier:

I had a 92 Caddy Seville, almost the same GM product, and I am trying to remember the fuse panel under the dash and the panel under the hood. But, it sounds like a harness plug that goes to the back of the panel or somewhere close-by may have come loose. I can't imagine that all of those items are on the same circuit.

Ok, fine. We'll deal with the original question.

Horn
It's a piece of ****, and the wiring and/or internal circuitry are probably fubar.
Clock
It's a piece of ****, and the wiring and/or internal circuitry are probably fubar.
Radio*
It's a piece of ****, and the wiring and/or internal circuitry are probably fubar.
power mirrors
It's a piece of ****, and the wiring and/or internal circuitry are probably fubar.
locks
It's a piece of ****, and the wiring and/or internal circuitry are probably fubar.
interior lights

In all seriousness, I doubt that any of us here have the wiring diagrams lying around for a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera SL automatic. And for this kind of troubleshooting, you really do need to have the factory diagrams in your hand.

You may have already been there, but a quick Gooling turned up A-Body.net - Powered by vBulletin which seems to have a fair amount of activity on it. The very first folder on the homepage is labeled "Mechanical & Electrical Troubleshooting", which I expect tells you something about the priorities of other Ciera owners.

Oh, and I found a spot where you can get the wiring diagrams for your '95 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera SL automatic. See here: https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/t30224/
