The problem is with the wiring harness that plugs into the back of the gauge box. You will have to remove the upper dash and a few other places to get to it, but when you do, just make sure that the wires plug correctly into the back and the problem should be fixed. I had the same problem. Mine would actually go nill like you are describing and then when I would hit it just right, all would come back on.

Most likely, yes. As long as what caused the horn to break did not affect the airbag system.

Try disconnecting the battery cable, then reconnecting. If the airbag light still comes on, you need to take it to the dealer. Something in the airbag circuit isn't working correctly. To fix might involve removing the airbag. I've had the airbag light come on in my car two times & I've taken it to the dealer each time. I'm leery working around the airbag. You must disconnect the battery for a min of 5 mins

Your airbag light flashes 4 times a pauses on a lincolntown car what would be the problem?

The flashing means that you have an airbag code. This means that there is a problem with your airbag, and your vehicles computer is trying to tell you to take it to the dealership to be fixed. Go see your nearest dealership soon. Do not worry, the airbag won't just go off randomly if their is a problem, the light is probably indicating that the airbag will not work if you get in an accident. A dealership will be able to interpret this code and tell you what is wrong.

Which fuse is for the clock in 99 Toyota solara?

Check your owners manual or the underside of the fuse panel lid. One fuse will be labeled for gauges and meters (possibly along with the cruise control, airbag and other systems). That's a place to start. BUT, if all of your meters are working and only the clock has gone dark I'd suspect the instrument rather than the fuse. Cheers
