it may have a small cover over it. it should be right beside the ASD relay in the fuse box under the hood.

When will Dodge engineers smarten up and put separate fuses on each thing that draws through the IOD fuse? As time has passed the size of the IOD fuse has increased to the point where for some vehicles it must handle 90 amps. Everything that needs power (even standby power) when the ignition is off goes through it. This includes every open and close door module, electric seats, sliding door openers, window open and close motors (so you can remotely open the windows to cool off the car before you get in), gps equipment, clock, remote key receiver, remote engine start module and heater fan on warm engine detect, security system and alert (which includes lights and horns), and much more. Right now the only way to fix such problems is to cut all wires coming off the IOD in inserting a shunt with a place for a fuse. After turning off the car remove the fuse bypass on the shunt and watch. Eventually, a fuse will blow. That tells you the culprit causing the battery drain. In some cases it has been shown to be a open door module that is shorting internally. At other times it can be wiring. Regardless, it all comes to lousy engineers at Dodge. The problem has existed in every Dodge and many Chryslers since the early 90's and will continue to be more of a problem as vehicle electronics increase.
