am also looking for an answer to this, now my 15 amp fuse is blown and the car won't start. someone said if you have an after market stereo to start with the wiring behind the stero ...does anyone have any idea what the connection is here? It's possible the fuse is not making good contact because of corrosion. Taking it out and cleaning the contacts with steel wool or similar may make it work. I have a vague memory of this being discussed in mpvclub.com. I think it's some other fuse. IIRC visually look at almost all the fuses inside and if you find a bad one change it, and that does it. Try it anyway I'm not 100% sure it's been so long.
