on my 2003 they are in three separate places....two are in engine compartment area...the third is behind a panel or passenger side...next to the glove compartment where the air vent is located (air vent to the door) i suspect the instrument panel fuses are in the engine compartment area....hope that helps
FIrst, spin the brightness knob back and forth, if dirt or corrosion are causing the problem, this cleans the contact area. If that does not resolve it, check the fuses number 7 and 11 just under the dash on drivers side, it has a cover on it that comes off.
If the lights for system check do not come on when the key is turned to run without starting engine, check the fuses number 9 and 5 just under the dash on drivers side.
If this does not correct the issue, and the following- Radio glove box light, ashtray light, ABS light at startup with the other system check lights do work, the bulbs for dash illumination are probably burned out.
if the radio, ash tray and glove box light work and the other system check lights do not- the dash cluster may be seperated from the connector on the back side. or the ground wire for the cluster may not be making contact. The ground wire specific for the dash cluster lights is a black wire with orange trace stripe.
It seems that there is a battery draw that is shorting out the fuse. you need to trace the wire back to the point of power and see what is going on. My theory would be that some place in the power out (from the fuse) it is grounding to the chassis. I wouldn't even be able it give you and idea where to start considering how many wires there are, but if you can isolate that wire and chase it back to the cluster and the gauges you will find the issue.
I know thta, for a 2002 Ford Explorer, the 30 amp circuit breaker in location #62 of the power distribution box in the engine compartment is the power window circuit breaker. (unfortunately in the 2002 owner's manuals it is labelled accessory delay ) later years are labelled as the power window circuit breaker.
Hope helped with this. Remember rated this help, good luck.
you need a test light, that's a thing like an icepick with a wire clip on it and a light in the handle, any parts store will have several, about 5 bucks
check by clipping the clip to any ground, (Engine block etc) switch on he ignition and touch the sharp point to both sides of ALL fuses and breakers, when you find one with power at ONE end, but NOT BOTH ENDS.
look under the dash below the instrament cluster.where the relays are there is a small metal box about 1 inch wide with a green label.that is the fuse for your windows.replace with dealer part only.
if that does not solve your problem check the ground wire from the drivers door to the kick panel ,
