1991 olds location fuse for memory power/no back up power radio & ac control

now its not a 1988 but a 1091 olds, and not a Dakota.
im totally gobsmacked. what is it, below is Dakota answer
if it is an Olds what model car , what engine?

with a question, and he it is the memory fuse.
what engine?
2.2 L (134 cu in) K I4
2.5 L (150 cu in) K I4
2.5 L (150 cu in) AMC I4
3.9 L (238 cu in) LA/Magnum V6
5.2 L (318 cu in) LA/Magnum V8

the 2.5 ECU memory pin as pin A41 red wire
and goes to the battery via the main FUSE LINK.
i looked at the schematic for the other engine, same link.......
id bet dollars to donuts its not bad.
there are 3 links, one for Altenator, (is it dead) one for A/C and heater blower, is it dead, and one to drive the input to the ignition swich
the ignition goes dead, if that red wire is dead.
so is A41, not at 12v at all times.
