What function? 50 amp main, closest to firewall, under hood? Looks like someone rigged it to stay on, but what did that kill?

The 50 amp main fuse should be able to be tested with a standard test light. If it has continuity then it is OK. If it is bad then replace it and retest.
First thing that comes to mind on a Honda with your symptoms is a fail ignition distributor or bad ignition coil. I would advise you to test for spark at the spark plugs and if you have none, then start testing the distributor.

The blower motor on this vehicle fell out and wedged the fan. I have replaced the fan with a known good fan but it still won't run. Is there a fuse, circuit breaker or relay that might have blown when...

It's marked AC and it's in the under hood fuse relay center, near the battery. The ballast resistor can fail too it's the device that if you follow the wire from the blower motor, it's in the heater box next to the blower and it can be unpligged , melted and just bad. Connect a test light between the two wires that connect to the motor, and with the key on, work the heater controls, to see if the light will come on in any position, wiggle the connections watching the light. If it's not working you might still have power so connect the test light between the body ground and the wires to the motor and you can find that you have power but not ground. The blower relay in in the firewall fuse relay center, standing in front of the car behind the engine it's the third relay from the left, under the Maxi fuse panel. This panel has two black covers and it's under the left one. The resistor is right under this fuse panel and it can have two plugs connected to it. The two wire connector is just power and ground. and it's on all the time the power from the maxi fuse. The maxi just makes the high speed though the relay and the lower speeds are controlled by the number 50 fuse in the insrument panel fuse panel number 50 it's a 25 amp fuse (clear)

How do I fix lighter fuse in 2005 Lexus ES330?

under the controls for the side view mirrors, behind the coin holder cup. open the coin cup & pull up on the cup until it pops out of place. on the back of the coin cup is the fuse diagram. its the "cig" on the 3rd column, top row, "15a". there are some spare fuses under the hood. open the hood & its on the right of the engine in the black box that's about 10in by 4in big. open the cover & look at the fuse diagram & look for the spares on the top right.

Where is the fuel pump fuse in the engine compartment?

It is not a fuse, It is a relay.
There is a single wire test lead under the hood, usually gray in wire color. Apply power there to test

Windows and door locks dont work inside lights syay on

You may have two problems. The fuse in your power box under the hood is blown. It should be located next to the battery. This will cause the interior lights to come on. It should be the #12 fuse--a 50 amp. The reason for it to blow is the wires might be broke in rubber boot that is between the drivers door. This will also cause the windows to only work when the door is shut.

Radio and all dome lights are not working.

interior fuse should be the culprit. Look for the Radio fuse inside (normally 10A red) sometimes labeled CABIN on the fuse layout
