  • contains some of the system fuses.
  • contains relays for:
    • driver power window
    • accessory delay
    • interior lamps
    • driver unlock (power door locks)
    • battery saver feature

There was one 5 AMP tan fuse, located second row up from the bottom on the far right on our panel #38. #33 is on the right of two in the third row up. Please see, if you can, the attached picture.graphic
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Is it possible they could have put a different fuse box, maybe a 2007 model, in ours?
Expert:  EMRSR replied 7 years ago.
Its 33 in both my sources, do you have VIN# ? I can check the build date.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Expert:  EMRSR replied 7 years ago.

Ok it is a very early production 2006, build date of 12/2/05. Do any windows work from any switch at all?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No. None of them work.
Expert:  EMRSR replied 7 years ago.
I'm looking at schematics, I have not left.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
cool. we are still here too. thanks for your diligence.
Expert:  EMRSR replied 7 years ago.
Ok I see the picture you sent, is that the actual layout of the fuse panel, could it be the wrong cover? I am starting to look at other years.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
actually it matches the fuses perfectly
Expert:  EMRSR replied 7 years ago.

It is #10 a 30 amp fuse, I may have made a typing error that sent me the wrong way, I'll have to go back and look. But that circuit by the schematic is protected by #10.
