hello, i did check the fuses in the passenger kick panel but just visually and it was like a million degrees so might not have seen them completely, was just looking for the popped metal not any haze or cloudiness as described in some of the other links. i will go back tomorrow and swap the spare Type B fuse under the Hood
into slot 43 to see if that gets it. fingers crossed because i know electrical stuff can get real expensive REAL fast. thanks again CaffeineKid! i will keep you posted.
