Can anyone help me find it? I want to check the fuses for the radio. I started a separate thread as I figured this would be helpful for anyone else with the same problem.

Should be about where left knee is (maybe a little to left of left knee) when sitting in drivers seat (under dash).

There is another one with all the big fuses under hood on driver's side next to fender .

What does it look like? Because I can't find it. There's a white box behind but it doesn't look like a fuse box.... and it isn't very easily accessible. Please tell me that isn't it!

That's it, remove the 3 screws on the panel under the steering wheel, the wide gray one and pull it out of your way, pulls straight back to ya. If you still need more access to the fuse box straight up is a #10 hex bolt, remove it, the other side on the kick panel is a thumb nut you can take off and the box should pull down for better access.

Could you get a picture further out so I can make sure I'm looking at the right thing? It's right up in there... I dunno how I'm gonna get at it. :S

As it will look mounted;

As it will look loose, there will be a cover over the fuses and of course I have some plugs unplugged after I removed the steering column;

Oh boy, so what I saw IS the fuse box. I'm going to have to wait until Monday before I can do anything, I don't get home until 10PM and tomorrow we're out from 6AM til 11PM for a friend's wedding...

Then it's back to normal! I don't suppose you know which fuse is to the radio / cigarette lighter socket?

I finally got the hood open today. The hood is all bent up and wasn't springing up by itself, so I had a friend pull on it while I pulled the lever. I adjusted those little black springy black things to make sure it comes up by itself next time.

Whoever rigged the light switch in did so with a crocodile clip directly to the positive terminal on the battery. I really want to fix this wiring issue - I miss having a radio!

I just replaced the 'ACC' / accessories fuse in the fuse box, this brought my aux power / cigarette lighter socket back to life. However, the radio still does not power up.

I'm going to buy myself a voltage tester (an investment I've been putting off for too long now) and see if it's getting power. Perhaps the stereo is fried.
