    Wow; I had one in green just like it in the late 70s, straight 6... sold it just before I left for the Gulf during the rescue attempt in Iran.

    Thank You for that, DUH!!!
    Since I have two Priuses and you making mention of it, I decided to look at the cover of my manual; guess what, I am looking at the 2008. However, since I’ve been following the diagram on the fuse block cover, I’ve been trying to match each fuse with the right amperage and location as depicted.
    Thanks for the wake up slap.
    I still need to find the source of my issue. So far, I’ve only found one bad... back at it now that the sun is lower...

    Ok; car’s running: Now I need my instrument panel to light up.
    The problem was a misplaced 25A Fuse. My display panel went from having g all these Xmas lights lit up to completely dark; so, I get no speedometer, gas, trip, etc... reset cannon plugs to hybrid battery and disconnected six battery for 30 secs; no joy.
    Tomorrow I’ll look at engine compartment fuses for any blown fuses after the fact.
    Any ideas?

    I think you need to look at it again. That attachment photo has more fuses in weird places than just one 25a fuse.

    Look at that picture I posted. Each slot that has an X in it should be an empty slot. I would start with that and see where it puts you. Maybe compare your fuse box cover with my picture and see if they're similar.

    Or post an updated photo of the fuse box.

    Thank You
    I never updated the pic after rearranging them; happy car cranked up.
    I took the placard and counted fuses per row and amp requirement; had two out of place with a blank spaced occupied by the 25A.
    Unless some other fuse burned in the engine compartment, I intend to run through them again and update the pic. I am kind of getting used to working in such tight quarters upside down.
    More to come... stay tuned upload_2018-10-10_22-59-5.png

    Done and Done... Checked early this morning inside and outside fuse box. Outside is easy; I just put the leads to my multimeter and check for continuity. Inside, however, I can’t fit my shoulders to have two hands in there. So, I pulled each individual fuse for a visual. Then counted each row and fuse position to confirm.
    Two or more minds do better than one... please see updated pic and tell me if I am missing something. Also checked dimmer, which I never use, and. I changes when rotating... HELP!!!

    In your photo attached to post 26:

    In the left column of fuses, it looks to me that the third 10amp fuse down from the top should be in the fourth slot (it will have the 7.5 amp fuse to the right of it in the photo). The third slot should be empty. That is merely comparing your picture to the diagram in post 18.

    The fourth slot (currently empty, but should have a 10a fuse in it) shows to be for :

    head light leveling
    passenger seat belt warning
    gauges and meters
