Here'* where it is on my 89 SE. Arrows point to where I believe the fuel pump relay & fuse are. I was able to get access by flipping down the glove box. Just bend the rubber bumpers forward & the box will pivot forward & out of the way.

I've got a Chiltons shop manual that covers these cars from 88-93. The 88 & 89 are both showing the fuel pump relay in the position I marked with the red arrow. The horn relay is right above the fuel pump relay. Does your horn work?

Then there must be some major differences between the 88 & 89. What model do you have? BTW - you should add that info to your sig. Ex.- 1988 Bonneville LE - 100,000 miles
