Why won't my battery keep a charge on my 1995 Buick lesabre
There are really only three answers to this, 1.The battery is defective (have it load tested) 2. The battery charging system in the car is defective (have that tested as well) 3. You have a parasitic draw from some light or other thing that is left on, visor lights are a common source of this type of draw.

Sounds like it's time for a tune up or an ignition diagnostic.
The check engine light flashing is indicating an engine misfire.
This could be most commonly caused by a bad spark plug, bad ignition wires, bad ignition coil, bad fuel injector.
If the spark plugs have black streaks down the outside of them, replace the ignition wire set as well. This was a very common problem with these models.

95 buick lesabre check engine light goes on every time i hit passing gear or climb a hill. when i restart car it is off again.
Sorry to say, that is one of those GM cars that is difficult to retrieve trouble codes without special scanners. It was on some '94 and '95 GM luxury or upscale models (your LeSabre was one), where they put in the new diagnostic connector that became standard on all cars built after 1996- and called OBD-2 (for On Board Diagnostics, second generation). The problem is, your '95 model is typical of all early '90's cars and trucks equipped with the OBD-1 system. It only has 2 digit trouble codes, and there are not a lot of them, only about 2 dozen in total. The whole system is OBD-1, but the diagnostic connector is configured like an OBD-2 connector.
Some shops might have the scanners necessary to work on your car, some with high end scanners. Of course, GM dealerships would have the right testers, but they are outrageous in prices.
I would try to find someone who could get the codes for you. What you describe sounds to me a lot like a bad Mass Airflow Sensor, or MAF sensor. That is just a guess, though, and why I recommended you try to see if there are trouble codes. There should be at least one.

My cover is gone for the fuse box. I cant find which fuse is for the horn on my 1995 buick lesabre
Vehicle handbook often contains fuse details and repair manuals contain a more general overview.
It will probably be necessary to test each fuse but removing the fuses for test should be avoided in order to ensure any accumulated memory in the electronics is maintained along with the radio code and possibly immobiliser code.
Very few fuses are completely insulated and most can be tested without removal using a slim pointed probe and a test lamp or buzzer. I have used an old air brake warning buzzer for many years because it draws enough current to indicate dirty connections that defeat voltmeters and electronic testers. A home-made test lamp with a large-ish bulb is equally effective but without the handy audible bit.
Ground one side of the tester and place the probe onto one end of the fuse and then the other. If current is detected on both ends of the fuse the circuit is live and the fuse ok.
Repeat with all the fuses.
If both ends are dead then switch on the lights or ignition and/or each accessory as applicable until all the fuses have been checked. When you discover a fuse that is live at one end and dead at the other you have found a culprit.
